Why or why not?
Some say they don't worship the image of the cross and yet genuflect before it and do the sign of the cross before getting into their pew before Mass... Sure, they can turn it around and say they are showing respect for that 'image' but in reality, you are BOWING before it and it's a STATUE which is a GRAVEN IMAGE.

No I don't think Christians worship graven images. The key word is worship, and only God is worshiped. There is no power in any picture or carving. If you read the whole passage it talks about no image from Heaven, Earth or Sea. I don't think this means any image is wrong because if you read the last line of the passage it says Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them. It is talking about serving and worshipping an idol and pictures, statues, images can tell stories but they aren't worshipped.
