Many churches in the world today insist that the cross is the symbol of the church.
They say it is okay to make a cross because they do not worship it.
What would God think about that?
Did God say it is okay to make images as long as we don't bow down to them or worship them?

Ex 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 ...

God commanded us not to make any image.
What about making a cross and erecting it?
Nowhere in the Bible does it say that the cross is an exception.

Ex 20:23 Do not make any gods to be alongside me;...
This mistaken thought comes from a lack of understanding of God's command.
We must not make an image of anything, including the cross, or worship it, just as God commanded us.

    The cross is an idol. The Bible tells us not to make anything for God and serve it. Is the cross really an exception? And there are too many other idols. God is our Creator. Nothing else can be equal to God. Let's we must stay away from idols.

    I think denying the cross is not an idol is word-playing that makes God sad. Actually they regard the cross as the idol which was banned by God!! I'm afraid that they do what God don't want to do. All we need to follow is God's lesson, not the idol like the cross.

    The Cross is an idolatry before God that never make any images. The Cross was made by men and set up on the top of roof and in the Church. Setting up Cross is an idolatry and to distort the Bible and to pervert God. It is no useless to us.

    God said not only bowing an idol but also making any images.
    What about? The cross. Doesn't have a cross any image?
    No, It has an image. Then, can we make a cross? Is it God's will?
    No, you can not and It is not God's will.
    When we follow God's word and will, we can receive blessings from God.
    If not then, we will be cursed according to the Bible which contains God's will.
    We must deny the cross.

    Right. God commanded us that "Do not make an idol in the form of anything." So we should not make an image of anything. The cross is the same. It also has an image. So we should not make the cross and pray to it. We must realize the fact that the cross is just an idol.

    The cross is merely an idol. We ought to keep the New Covenant Passover established by Jesus' blood.

    Cross is just an idol.
    We should realize it for our salvation.
