Ernst Kitzinger described the mentions of Christian views on Christian images before the mid-6th century as "scattered and spotty", It is a striking fact that when painting and sculpture first began to infiltrate Christian assembly rooms and cemeteries they did so practically unheeded by either opponents of or apologists for Christianity—engaged though these were in passionate disputes over idols and idolatry.
Some would defend Graham by saying, “Look at all the people who get saved!
On the other hand, a man oozing with love and compassion can err by tolerating everything and everyone, thus compromising God’s truth.
The latter error seems to me to be the more common danger in the church.
Christianity has not generally practised aniconism, or the avoidance or prohibition of types of images, but has had an active tradition of making and venerating images of God and other religious figures.
However, there are periods of aniconism in Christian history, notably in the Early Christian church, in the Byzantine iconoclasm of the 8th century, and following the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, when Calvinism in particular rejected all images in churches, and this practice continues today in Calvinist churches, fundamentalist Christianity, as well as among other evangelicals.
