Lions are symbols, not idols, to honor God

To the editor,

A Greenville man was arrested for vandalizing lion statues at Miller Road’s Yahweh Congregation’s property because he thought they were idols.

In the Old Testament, YHWH was God’s name. The Israelites felt they would dishonor God if they spelled it out with all the letters of the holy name of Yahweh.

With that in the name of this place, I am assuming it is a place of worship. In the Old Testament, God is titled “The Lion of Judah.”
