Nowadays, the cross is considered sacred by Christians. But It is an idol that God forbade us to worship.


In the first commandment among the 10 commandments, God firmly said that we must not make an idol in the form of anything.


Ex 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.

Deut 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!"


Historically, the saints of the early church never considered the cross as sacred, but they thought of the cross as a tool to punish sinners with death.

I've heard a sad story that a father lost his daughter in a car accident. Since then, the father was not able to take any cars.
It's because a car reminds him of the death of his beloved one.
Suppose somebody gives the model car to him intentionally.
How will he feel then?


Our Savior was crucified on that cross.
The reality that cross, which was the punishment tool, was introduced into the church should be corrected.
And we have to think about the cross from God's point of view and on the basis of the words of the Bible.


The cross is nothing but an idol, so we must reject any behavior of treating the cross as sacred.

    The Cross is not a symbol of church, but an Idol that is banned by God!! God prohibited to make the idol. Is the Cross exceptional? Is there any word about it? The Cross is the Idol!!

    that's right! we can't find about "Serve the Cross" in the Bible. the Cross is just paganism. according to the teachings of the Bible, those who serve an Idol can't be saved. because that is not God's teaching. In order to be saved, we have to follow God's teachings. the reason why we believe in God is for salvation. we don't forget this.

    Yes! The cross is an idol that we should not make for God. God commanded us to not make any forms and worship them. However, Christians believe that the cross is a symbol of the church. Historically, the public use of the cross was adopted by the Christians as a symbol at the time of Constantine. The cross was introduced into the churches as the church became secularized after Roman Emperor Constantine authorized Christianity in A.D.313. The cross is an idol that we should not make. We all know very well about the result of idol worshipers. Let us not make any idols before God the creator.

    Worshiping idols is to follow the ways of nations that don't believe in God. It is the best way of being cursed by God. We see many people pray before idols such as crosses and statues of virgin Mary, but their prayers can not be answered. It is cuz idols can do no harm nor can they do any good. Conversely, our God who fills earth and heaven can save us with His Almighty power! Nevertheless, how can people identify God with idols ?
    Idolaters who disobey the word of God who prohibited idols have no choice but to be cursed and destroyed at the end as God warned us. What a pity !

    We must know the history about the cross beginning from Tammuz, the Sun god.
    It's absolutely not related with Christianity. Let's come back to the early pure faith following the teaching of Jesus.

    Right. The cross is just an idol. It has no power to give us blessing. God said do not make any idols in the form of anything. God's people should keep God's word. So we should realize that the cross is an idol and throw it away.

    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.
