Worshiping the cross is idolatry

Most churches today make the cross their symbol. However, the cross is designated as an idol in the Bible, and those who make or worship any image are idolaters who are cursed by God.
Is it okay for those who hope to be saved by God to practice idolatry, against which God warns so severely that he established it as the second commandment of the Ten Commandments? Definitely not.

 
Exodus 20:4
“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.”

 

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 sets it up in secret.” Then all the people shall say, “Amen!”

 

Even when viewed through the teachings of the Bible, the cross is just an idol that should never be made or erected, and no one can receive salvation from God by worshiping it.
Furthermore, looking through history, the cross is nothing more than a tool like a death penalty frame that has no meaning whatsoever in believing in God, and is nothing more than an abomination derived from an idol made by pagans.
If we are thankful for the grace of Christ who died on the cross to save humanity, we must remember and cherish the New Covenant Passover established with the blood of Christ's sacrifice.

    The cross cannot be an exception in the idol that God has stipulated not to make. The cross can never be the symbol of the church. We should never consider a cross as a symbol of the church or make it because God said that not only worship the cross but also the act of making an idol itself will be cursed. Rather, we must remember God's sacrifice on the cross for our salvation and give eternal thanks to Him.

    Amen. The cross never be the symbol of church. God plainly told us that God's people should not worship any kind of material in the church.

    Amen.
    Many people who regard the cross as sacred seem to ignore the second commandment of the Ten Commandments.
    It is clearly said that God's people must not make an idol in the form of anything.
    The cross cannot be exceptional.
