What is the first commandment in the Bible?

Exodus 20:3 "You shall have no other gods before me."

Setting up the cross is breaking the first commandment and also breaking the second commandment.

Exodus 20:4-5 You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above,
or that is on the earth below, or that is in the water under the earth.
Do not bow down to them and do not serve them.

The cross is also an idol. It is a tangible object, and it is a man-made object.
Could the cross be an exception to the word not to make anything?

Two thousand years ago, the apostles and members of the early church thought of the cross as a “cursed tree”
Because it is the terrible thing that Christ was sacrificed for.
The cross was just a tree used as a tool for execution before Jesus.
Setting up a cross, giving meaning to it, and praying in front of it is idolatry.

In God, the cross is an idol that must be destroyed and is only a product of worshiping the sun god.
It is by no means a symbol of worshiping God.
The Church of God considers Christ sacrificed on the cross the object of faith.
The cross itself has no meaning in God.
That is why the Church of God, which follows the teachings of God, does not erect crosses.

    All God's commands are absolute for our salvation. Above all, we ought to serve God, not other gods. Many believers claim to believe in God, but most believers are standing against God. They are unconscious this fact until they learn God's will. And, using the cross is also worshiping an idol, not serving God the Savior. I was also in the habit of using the cross in my car. Whoever wants to be saved should not act after his own kinds at all. When we ignore God's words, then, will be treated in the same way on the day of judgment.

    In the first commandment of God there are two meanings. First is we should worship only God and the other one is should not worship any other gods except God. So if people make, worship or have Cross which is an idol they come to break and ignore thr first commandment of God. They can never be saved.

    The way we serve God is not to make other images, but to follow the truth of the new covenant that God has established. Realizing that the cross is just an idol, let us serve God in the right way.
