Now that is new to me and very interesting. What does God have against using tools on stones? Perhaps His children should not be allowed to think that their intelligence or self-expression is worthy.
Actually, it has to do with the 2nd commandment - "You shall not make for yourself a carved image - any likeness
of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath..." - given Israel's propensity for
making idols to worship.
