A picture is not the Word.

I recently went through my website and took out all the  pictures that I have posted over the years, since I decided that even if a picture is worth a thousand words a picture can still get in the way of the true word of God, except in children’s books about Jesus, when they are learning the basics about the truth.  The pictures on my website were somehow frightening to people and were more driving them away then bringing them in, as they say.
