I personally think that all Christians must say ELOHIM instead of God or Allah since ELOHIM is the only true God of Israel and of the Bible. All the deities of the nations are called idols/demons in the Word of God. To avoid idolatry and worship of demons, we must stick to the word ELOHIM.  :angel:

The Nestorians have had a virtual prohibition on icons in their churches for a very long time, quite unrelated to abuses in Europe and only incidentally related to Islamic expansions (since they didn't really stop using icons until the Mongol expansions in the 13th century, quite a few centuries after initially coming under the yoke of the Muslims).

Not all the so-called Nestorians, apparently. The ones on the Old Calendar in schism from Chicago and those living in China have icons.

What kind of icons? Any examples?

Don't know. Haven't Googled.

Orthodox layperson suggests everyone call God by God.

(Or use which ever name you believe is most accurate.  Either way.)

Welcome to the magical (i.e. modernist) world of Dutch Catholicism.  They even have football masses:


That's a futbol..........not a football.  ;)
