You're not a catholic. Or you are just a nominal catholic. Whether it is actual image of Christ or not, it still remains image. It still reminds every man of Christ, even SHOUTING it. And anything ascribed to Christ must be respected.
That statue is not Jesus Christ, whether you believe it or not. Don't u think there are satanic statues of Jesus everywhere??

Whether the image depicts Christ or not is not the issue. Even if accurately depicts him, it is still image. The fact is the image constantly reminds every one that comes across of Him whom it represents. And once consencrated, it is treated with respect that is given holy things. If some people actually know and have holy things. The bronze serpent, the ark, the cherubs, were all done according to specifications. And they became holy and powerful due to holy things/condition they represented and would represent

what the bible forbids are IMAGES OF OTHER GODS. (EX 20:3-5). Catholic images are NOT OTHER GODS but REMINDERS OF GOD AND OF HIS HOLY FRIENDS.



ALSO
Does the writer knows the origin of the Holy bible? The Holy Bible is compiled by the catholic church, therefore, bible cannot contradict the doctrine of the catholic church.
Re: Is That Really Jesus? By Reno Omokri by felucci(m): 9:19am On Jan 04, 2016
The bible doesn't condemn the building of statues or images that glorify God. God told Moses to build an image of a snake to heal Israelites bitten by snakes and he also told him to build images representing the cherubim angels and this was part of the ark of the old covenant. People build statues to remind themselves of people or events they had an experience with and that's because those images help the mind to remember or just gives them inspiration. Idolatery is when you worship those statues as your own god. There is nothing wrong with using images or statues to help people remember or stay inspired. We see images in our daily life such as on the tv, newspapers, internet and so on.

Mr Obinna, a private individual built a church with his own money and decide to embellish the church building with a great statue according to his personal faith and belief in the Catholic Church and he has received nothing but mostly insults from fellow Nigerians who think they have a better perception of what Jesus looked like.

I know for a fact that in other territories, uncountable statues of Jesus have been built by persons and governments amidst fanfare, even if only for the revenue potential from tourist attraction. You can see a list of even larger statues here:

http://www.kuriositas.com/2013/02/the-tallest-statues-of-jesus-christ-in.html?m=1

Let us stop this our holier than thou attitudes and appreciate a good effort. In my opinion, the bible is permissible of statues where such statues are not graven to be worshipped but to venerate and honour only. This opinion is taken from my interpretation of the passage below.

Leviticus 26:1King James Version (KJV)
Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God...

Let us be a bit more kind with our words. If Mr Obinna was indeed wrong in building the church and the statue according to his Catholic faith, it is clearly not for us to judge.
Read that scripture again more carefully. It says "ye shall make you no idols...." for whatever reason. The commandment says"don't".

. The bronze serpent made by Moses was commanded by God then. Now the commandment to us is:"Ye shall not". Read your bible very well.

Is there a difference between an idol and an effigy?

Is the Mandela Statue in South Africa an idol?

You meant God commanded the Israelites to 'worship' moulded snake by looking at it, instead of telling them to look at Him God. Go study bible, and not read it only. And who told you God has stopped speaking to his church and people?

Those who have left this world have no power to intercede on your behalf; only Jesus Christ. My pastor is alive and the bible clearly says that we the earthly body of Christ should pray (in the name of Jesus) with and for each other. You be the judge.

well the mother of my savior,my friend and my brother (Jesus Christ) virgin mary is also my mother, and she has been a good mother to me as she was to my brother Jesus. And i know she is in heaven watching over me, and will always love my mother for the role she played in bringing Jesus to me.....And if you dont love your mother is your own cup of tea

Many Roman Catholic practices have no biblical roots, unfortunately Muhammed copied most of this false Christianity while forming Islam. You can notice Catholicism has a lot of resemblance to Islam, or rather vice versa. From the chaplet to the scapula to the name Fatima etc. Last Friday, I was passing through Yaba and saw catholics on procession blocking major roads and I remembered Shite Muslims. May God open their eyes though the worst being that they refuse to acknowledge their blindness.

Proverbs 26:12
Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them.

John 15:22
If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
I don't remember private jets in the bible too o shocked

I knew defeated about images itself, you people would shift to bowing to the images. After you must have been defeated in that you will shift to something else. Please tell us who the Israelites bow to before the tent/the ark. And I'm sure you have not bowed to anybody in your life. Many things to educate you on but no time.
definitely not a status
