As all we know well, Christians use the cross for a symbol of the churches.
However, do you know that the cross is just an Idol that God forbid to make for God's people?

As the first commandment among ten commandments, God commanded us that do not to make any forms neither worship them.
Then how people in this age make the cross and insist that it is the symbol of churches.

If you trace back to the time, we can understand the origin of the cross.

Originally, the cross was an idol symbolizing paganism.
The public use of the cross was adopted by Christians as a symbol at the time of Constantine. (Baker's Dictionary of Theology)

That is why we cannot find any single evidence of using the cross as the symbol of the church at the time of the early church.
In the times of the early church, the cross was an execution tool for criminals on death row.

The Bible also describes the result of worshiping Idol as a curse.

That is why the World Mission Society Church of God never makes the cross or worship.

Let us never make or worship Idol.
Let us believe and follow the footprint of Jesus Christ in the Bible.

    Those who worship the cross claim that it's a symbold of the churches. However, the cross is a mere idol God forbade.

    God said, "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" (Exodus 20:4-5.)

    Even making an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below is not aallowed.
    Instead of worshiping the cross, we should remember the sacrifice of Christ by keeping the Passover of the New Covenant.

    Today, the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) does not set up the cross, but keep the Passover of the New Covenant by following the teachings of Jesus. Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the New Covenant to bring salvation according to the prophecies of the Bible (Hebrews 9:28.)

    Most Christians regard the cross as something great for their salvation. But, the cross is nothing but an idol, not the sacred thing at all. Concerning using the cross, God warned that they would stand against God while using the cross.
    True believers have to listen to what God said, not to the thoughts from men.
    Many Christians mention Christ Jesus' sacrificing on the cross. But, they never speak about the new covenant, which was established by Jesus' blood shed on the cross.

    The idol is a thing that has image. God said "Do not make idols in any images." So the cross is an idol too. Even the churches insist that the cross is a symbol of the church, it is just an idol. So we should not make and worship the cross.
