Continuation: Christ Ahnsahnghong, is the cross really an idol?

God gave the command, “do not make for yourself any Idols” but yet everyone now a days has Idols.  If this is not God’s way then it has to be the traditions of men. God already knew that we would set aside his commands for our own traditions.

Mark 7:8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men.”

What do you think God thinks about the traditions of men?

Jeremiah 10:2 This is what the LORD says:
“Do not learn the ways of the nations
or be terrified by signs in the sky,
though the nations are terrified by them.

3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless;
they cut a tree out of the forest,
and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.

God said, “Do not learn the ways of the nations”, even though everyone is doing Idolatry, should we follow?  No we shouldn’t, God even said that the customs of the people are worthless.  At this time God is talking about a specific custom.

Jeremiah 10:3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless;
they cut a tree out of the forest,
and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.

4 They adorn it with silver and gold;
they fasten it with hammer and nails
so it will not totter.

5 Like a scarecrow in a melon patch,
their idols cannot speak;
they must be carried
because they cannot walk.
Do not fear them;
they can do no harm
nor can they do any good.”

God said that they cut a tree out of the forest and then they adorn it with silver and gold and then they shape it, the shape they give it is like a scarecrow.  When you cut a tree, you cut it to get the wood.  When you think about wood, its not value but once they adorn it with silver and gold it becomes valuable.  After this they also shape this wood, the shape they give it, is like a scarecrow.  What does a scarecrow look like?

The shape that they give the wood is a cross.  God said that the cross is an Idol, even though everyone see’s the cross as a sign of Christianity, its not.  Some people even say that they have a cross because they want to remember Jesus, do you think that that is the way to remember Jesus Christ?  No way, the way to remember him is to remember everything he said, all his commandments and following them.

John 14:15 “If you love me, you will obey what I command.

If we love God, we must obey what he commands.  God said do not have any Idols, so we should not have any Idols.  No virgin mary statues, images or pictures, no crosses at all.  Remember what God said, when we have Idols we will be punished by God because we are sinning against God and showing God hate.
