11. A conscious awareness of God is intrinsic to human nature.

Tara Brach recently told the story of a four year old who was excited to have alone time with his new baby sister. When he finally got to the side of her crib, he asked her, “Tell me what heaven is like. I’m starting to forget.” If we didn’t have a conscious awareness of God, we wouldn’t be striving so hard to find Him in everything from houses of worship to fictional characters on the big screen. Don’t let atheists fool you; they might not believe in a God in the sky, but they’re worshiping something, nevertheless, whether its money, power, or simply themselves.

--Judaism doesn’t permit graven images, which is why Christianity, especially Catholicism, never made very much sense to Jews. --

Would Judaism permit a statue of William Penn or Abraham Lincoln or a bas-relief of Moses with the 10 Commandments (for irony assume the Jewish/Protestant with the specific prohibition of graven images) on the side of a building?

Are you saying William Penn, Abraham Lincoln, or Moses are God?

No, but then neither is a statue of Jesus.
