Church of God World Mission Society, is the cross a sign of Christianity?

There are so many different beliefs out in the world, just by looking at someone you can’t always tell what religion they are.  When we see someone walking down the street and they have a cross, then we can come to the conclusion that they believe in God.  Most people see the cross as a sign of Christianity but is the cross truly a sign of Christianity?

As we know Jesus Christ died 2,000 years ago on the cross.  2,000 years ago the cross was an execution tool for criminals.  There were many different execution tools, some killed people in seconds, some in minutes but the worst of all was the cross because it would take hours for someone to die.  If the cross was an execution tool for the worst of criminals, then why do you think Jesus Christ was killed on the cross?  Was Jesus Christ, God Almighty a criminal?  Did he deserve to be treated as such?  No way but now a days everyone worships the cross and they see it as something Holy.  Many people have it hanging on there wall or around there neck or in there car because they feel safe with it.  Do you think it is something good?  As believers in God, we want to be blessed by God, do you think we receive blessings by having a cross?

Deuteronomy 21:22 If a man guilty of a capital offense is put to death and his body is hung on a tree, 23 you must not leave his body on the tree overnight. Be sure to bury him that same day, because anyone who is hung on a tree is under God’s curse.

According to the bible, anyone who is hung on a tree is under God’s curse, being hung on a tree is a curse. When I first read this, I thought God was talking about being hanged.  As we know Jesus Christ was crucified but let’s see how it was described in the bible.

Acts 5:30 The God of our fathers raised Jesus from the dead—whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree.

According to the bible being hung on a tree is a curse and the bible testifies that Jesus Christ was hung on a tree.  Even though Jesus Christ is God Almighty he became a curse for us by being crucified.

Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”[f]

Jesus Christ became a curse for us because he was hung on a tree, crucified.  Being crucified is a curse, the cross is a curse.  Being that the cross is a curse, should we worship the cross and value it as precious to us?  No way, we shouldn’t have something that is a curse for us.  Most people see the cross as something to remember Jesus Christ but should we remember how he was treated as a criminal or should we remember how he came to give us Eternal Life?

Now a days everyone worships the cross and views the cross as a sign of Christianity but should we do the same? No, our Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and our Heavenly Mother the New Jerusalem came to give us Eternal Life.  They came to bless us, then should we carry around something that will give us the opposite outcome?  Think about it, if we have something that is a curse, then will we be blessed or cursed?
