On the 2nd Commandment

Nothing created can serve to represent him, not even in the whole range of the created order, from top to bottom, and even in the realms of the mythopoeic creatures, in the heavens above and in the waters below the earth, because Yahweh has made every thing and every being.... They must worship him as he is, not as they can envision him or would like him to be.
