Thomas Ken on the Second Commandment

O my God, O my Love, I know the true love of Thee is incomunicable to any but Thee; and therefore I renounce, and detest, and bewail, as odious and offensive to Thee, as directly opposite to Thy love, and to Thy glory, [...] All representations and picturing of Thee, O my God, by visible liknesses of things in heaven or in earth.
~Thomas Ken, author of the Doxology, "Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow"
