They that offer this argument do not see the 3rdC as being redundant. They would simply say the 2ndC appears to be talking about man-made depictions of God vs. the 3rdC (in this context) the misuse of the said man-made depictions (which would be any use). Thus, they see them overlapping, but different (making vs. using the made depiction).


On a different note how would you respond to John Frame's analysis of the 2ndC?
