WMSCOG Idolatry -These days, most churches have a cross on their tops. No matter whether anyone is a believer or an unbeliever, people regard the cross as a symbol of church. They think it’s common sense.

2,000 years ago Jesus was executed on the cross by being regarded as a more atrocious criminal than murderers. Do you think the cross, which is nothing but an execution tool, can be a symbol of church, Jesus and Christianity?

First of all, the words of God in the Bible prohibit God’s people from making any image and regarding it as a tool for serving God.

Exodus 20:4~5 “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them;”…

Through Exodus 20, God emphasized that making an idol is never for God but just for people who wanted to be comforted. And He strongly commanded not to make anything a tool for worshiping God by making the form of anything following any form in the world. ‘in the form of anything’ means nothing can be an exception. Then of course, cross can’t be an exception, either.

Let’s read another verse which God banned WMSCOG idolatry.

Leviticus 26:1 “Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves,and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it. I am the LORD your God.”

God warned notto make any image with any material and set it up.

What is the result of those who ignore these God’s words and worship idols?

Deuteronomy 27:15 “Cursed is the man who carves an image or casts an idol—a thing detestable to the LORD, the work of the craftsman’s hands—and set sit up in secret.”

God warned that those, who have a disregard for God’s words and make idols and worship them, must be cursed.

These days,churches which set up the cross, excuse that the cross is just the symbol of Christianity and they don’t worship the cross. But they must realize that to make a cross itself is to disobey God’s commandment. And although they excuse they don’t worship the cross, they regard it as a comfort that protects them by wearing it or carrying it in their cars. They put devotion on it. That is idolatry! God knows very well human mind that puts devotion and faith on idols when we make them.So He forbade us to making idols.

The Cross is an idol (WMSCOG Idolatry)

The cross is nothing but a tool which God used for saving us from sins. No matter how Christ was sacrificed, what is important is not a tool but to take part in precious blood of Christ who sacrificed Himself to redeem us. Jesus put His love, that made Him sacrifice shedding blood on the cross, on the Passover of the New Covenant and commanded us to remember the sacrifice of Christ by commemorating the Passover. (Mt 26:17~28)

The only reason why Jesus was sacrificed on the cross was for our salvation and forgiveness of sins. If we are real Christians who truly love Jesus and remember His holy sacrifice, we should not worship an idol foolishly by making and serving across, but keep holy the Passover of the New Covenant through which Christ promised our eternal life and forgiveness of sins. Because that is the way how we don’t make the sacrifice of Jesus be in vain and we can get salvation by obeying God’s words.
