On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (11/30/18), Hank addresses the question: “Are icons of Jesus idolatrous?” In the fourth century A.D., Byzantine Emperor Leo III ordered the abolition of icons of Jesus, Mary, angels, and saints. This sparked the great Iconoclastic Controversy that persists to this day, where we are left to wonder, “Do the images of Jesus really violate the second commandment?”
Hank also answers the following questions:
- The Prime Minister of Pakistan wants the United Nations to pass a resolution to ban the criticism of Islam—what are your thoughts?
- When and how do we evaluate Church tradition?
- What should we as Christians do in response to the migrant crisis?
