If you think about the church, you’ll probably think of the cross. The cross has been considered as a symbol of the church or Jesus’ sacrifice. So it can be easily found inside and outside the church and around believers. However, when we read the Bible and focus on what God said, we can understand that this situation about the cross is very wrong. And also we can easily verify that WMSCOG which has no cross is the true church according to the word of God, the Bible. Let’s confirm it through God’s word.

Ex 20:4-6 “You shall not make for yourself an image 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; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.”
‭‭
This is the 2nd commandment of the Ten commandments of God. God commanded us to not make for ourselves an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. God said that we shall not bow down to them or worship them. What does it mean? It means that God commanded us to not worship idols. When God noticed about idols, He said that it can be any image in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. And there’s no mention that the cross is fine. The cross is not an exception. Following God’s commandments, we must never make or worship idols including the cross.

Lev 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 repeatedly said that do not make idols. An image, a sacred stone, or a carved stone are idols. We shall not set up idols or bow down before it including the cross.

Jer 10:1-5 Hear what the Lord says to you, people of Israel. This is what the Lord says: “Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens, though the nations are terrified by them. For the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter. Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field, 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.”

As God’s people, we must learn and keep the way of God, not the ways of the nations. God taught us that to make idols and worship it is the way of the nations which we shall never learn and follow. There’s no reason we should make and worship it. Let’s think about the cross. As God said in this verse, the cross cannot speak. The cross must be carried because they cannot walk. We don’t need to fear the cross because it can do no harm nor can it do any good. The cross is nothing but just a worthless wooden idol. To erect a cross in a church is absolutely non-biblical.

Deu 27:15 “Cursed is anyone who makes an idol—a thing detestable to the Lord, the work of skilled hands—and sets it up in secret.” Then all the people shall say, “Amen!”

The cross is nothing, but a cursed thing to God. He said that it’s a thing detestable to God. Is there any reason to erect the cross, as God said so far? Indeed, not erecting the cross in WMSCOG is following the word of God and the Bible. The 1st commandment of the Ten Commandments is that ‘you shall have no other gods before me’. As God’s people, we must worship only God, not other gods. Worshiping the cross is to violate the first commandment of the Ten Commandments as well as the second commandment of the Ten commandments.

As God commanded us, WMSCOG has no cross anywhere. WMSCOG keeps the truth of the New Covenant what Jesus established by His precious sacrifice on the cross. If you believe Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and wanna commemorate it, you must keep the truth of the New Covenant. We can keep all the truth of the New Covenant in WMSCOG. In WMSCOG, we can worship only God Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother. Let’s receive abundant heavenly blessings in WMSCOG.

    Now, I feel that the cross on the churches represents the false churches. It's like the sign of the false church!! That's natural that there's no cross on God's church!! That's why WMSCOG has no cross! 🙂

    We can't find any verses about worshiping cross in the Bible. Disciples and apostles had not worship the cross after Jesus crucified on the cross. They hate the cross at that time because Jesus crucified cruelly on the cross. And the Bible says that we must not worship idols. The Bible doesn't say that the cross is an exception. Actually the Bible is included in the idol that the Bible described. So we must not worship the cross.

    God taught us about idols through the Bible a long time ago. We must distinguish the truth from the false teaching to obey the words of God. The cross is just an idol. We don't need to worship the cross.

    If we just follow the bible, we don't have to follow wrong things. Remember that the criteria of God's words is the bible

    the Cross is not the teachings of God. and that is not a tool for salvation. It is the customary of the pagan and is an idol. those who serve an idol can not be saved. Only those who obey God's teaching as was written in the Bible can receive the blessing of salvation.

    There are many reason to erect the Cross. For commemorate Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, as a symbol of the Church and to get comfort through cross when some faces difficult.
    However, these reasons are not correct in aspect of God. God said not to make any image by thinking God and not to erect anything. And God said also the cross can do no harm nor do any good when we wear the cross on our neck. And, if some want to commemorate Jesus' sacrifice, you can do it by keeping Passover like Apostles in the age of Early Church.
    Anyway, there is no biblical reason to erect the Cross.

    If you make all shapes and worship them, you will serve idols and you will be cursed.

    The cross violates the second of the ten commandments.


  • 2021-07-07 14:12

    The 2nd of the Ten Commandments is "Do not make the idols, nor worship them".
    The cross is just the cursed idol that God prohibits.

    The cross is an exception to God's Ten Commandments, "Do not worship idols." Is there a phrase called
    The religious image of the cross is also idolatry. Also, the cross is historically a symbol of the sun god.
