Standing with Nicaea II? Or falling to Hell with Iconoclasm?

You chose what you do, for me it is Nicaea II, which the Catholic Church has recognised without controversy for centuries (unlike "Vatican II" or "Ephesus II", both of which have by some been called Robber Council)./HGL

Why did the Devil want Moses' body which God had buried?

1:09 "we are so wanting to materialize the spiritual"

Between God's burying Moses and now, we have had God do it for us - the right way.

Nazareth, Bethlehem, doesn't it ring a bell?

From Matthew 2 on, it is OK to adore something visible, like the presence of the Christ child:

[1] When Jesus therefore was born in Bethlehem of Juda, in the days of king Herod, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem. [2] Saying, Where is he that is born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to adore him

And once we can now adore a visible God, an Emmanu-El, the honour to visible saints is a less delicate one, since we can place the Incarnate God above the all dimensions created people saints.

That is why Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. - Yes, it is in a Catholic Bible - was an important part of the commandment to the Israelites and is not quite as applicable now.

No, we did not delete a commandment from our Bible.

What we did is not to number the cited words as a separate commandment from previous verses. Or following.

[I Commandment in Catholic numbering : Exodus 20:2-6]

1:23 I detected an Anti-Catholic slur about Catholic prayer beads (rosaries, I presume, mainly, though we have a few other ones) and saying "idols" and "icons" in the same phrase ...

I think there is an anathema over your heresy.

You can check with these extracts from a Council by the Church that Christ really founded (not yours, that is):

Second Council of Nicæa
