Many churches around the world erect crosses on the rooftops of their buildings. However, the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) does not erect any crosses, as it's a mere idol God hates.

Why is the cross an idol? 

God forbade His people from making any images and worshiping them. 


[Exodus 20:4] 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.


Even people claim that it's a symbol curch and it's not an idol. But the cross is an idol, which as an image. Those who worship the cross cannot get salvation.

Instead, we should keep the Passover of the new covenant to receive the promise of eternal life and the promise of the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:28; John 6:53-54.)

    I used to be blinded because I was not aware that a cross is an execution tool. The execution tool should not be a symbol of a church.

    Our God is omniscient and omnipotent, He is the owner of the whole universe. God is the one who we must revere. Every word of the Bible can't be neglected or underestimated. God commanded us not to make a form of anything. The cross is not exceptional. As people of God, we should reject the cross, and rather value the sacrifice on the cross by keeping the Passover.

    A man-made cross is an idol. Relying on it and serving it is idolatry.

    Let us receive the promise of eternal life through the Passover!

    The cross is not the symbol of church. It must be an idol which God forbade.
    The Bible testifies about this fact.
    There are many proves in the Bible.

    God said, we should have no idol in serving God. And the cross is also the idol, and we shouldn't serve it. Let's remember great sacrifice of God, and keep the Passover 🙂

    The cross has no power. It is just a man-made idol that God hates. Let us walk the upright path of faith in the will of God who forbade idolatry.

    Many churches have crosses, but in fact, the cross is an idol.
    God told us not to make images for God. Therefore, if you are truly a child of God, you should not build an idol.

    Cross is but an idol and it cannot save us. We must not serve it nor erect it.

    Many churches believe cross. But cross is an idol. It can found in the Bible. We can receive the promise of eternal life though the Passover.

    Cross is not a symbol of the church
    It just an idol

    According to the definition of the idol, a cross is an idol. It cannot speak. It cannot stand by itself. It is like a scarecrow made by man. It does not have any power. It even cannot move by itself. How can we say that it is a symbol of God or God's church!
