When you think of the church, you can imagine the cross.

However, The early Church, which Jesus established and the apostles attended, never erected the cross or had a doctrine where the cross was regarded as a symbol of faith.

It’s because having the cross and giving meaning to it is an act against the second of the Ten Commandments, “You shall not make for yourself an idol.”

History shows that the cross was used by many ancient religions as a symbol of faith.
It was an execution tool in the time of Jesus. As Christianity got secularized, the cross was introduced into the church.

The Church of God rejects the images of the cross because it is an idol, and values Christ who sacrificed Himself on the cross and the meaning of His precious blood.
That's why the Church of God has no cross.

    There's no promised God's blessings even though we erect the cross. Let's not ignore or disobey God's words.

    Cross reverence is an idol. God banned it strongly. We have to believe in God rely on God, not a cross. It is a just mere matal or wood. It cannot help us at any way but only makes us cursed.

    Many Christians claim that the cross is a symbol of the church.. However, if we study the Bible, we can see that the cross can't be the symbol of the church. The Bible teaches that if we make an image and set it up, it is an idol. The cross is just an image that can do nothing for us. It is God who gives us salvation. It is not the cross that we should engrave and commemorate in our hearts, but the Passover of the New Covenant established by the blood of sacrifice on the cross.

    Churches began to use the cross as they got secularized. Using the cross is worshiping an idol definitely against God's will.
    There's not a single verse about using the cross in a church.
    Nevertheless, nowadays, many Christians use this cross as a symbol of their belief.
    Whoever wants to be saved must abstain from using the cross.
    Instead, we have to keep the new covenant established through God's own blood on the cross.
    Using the cross has nothing to do with eternal salvation.

    The cross is the symbol of worshipping the sun god -Tamuze. God said that this is very detestable thing (Ezekiel 8:14~15)

    Right! True church doesn't have the cross because it is just an idol which God really hates. The WMSCOG is true church that doesn't have the cross and make God pleases.

    The cross is just idol. It can't give us any blessing or harm. If you put the cross in the car, the cross can't prevent car accidents. If you put the cross as earings, necklace or ring, it can't protect you from anything. It is just idol. We must rely on our salvation through Jesus' blood in the Passover. Let's break idols and worship only God.

    Amen! The cross is a mere idol. We cannot receive blessings when we make or set up a cross. On the contrary, those who make or establish a cross will be cursed.
    Many churches set up crosses and they claim that the cross is a symbol of the church and it's not an idol. Whatever they insist, it's an idol God forbade. Let's throw away the crosses. Instead, please keep the Passover of the new covenant Jesus established through His blood for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:28.)

    After I met the Church of God, I realized that the cross is an idol. I really give thanks to God for guiding me to absoulte truth.

    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.

    Using the cross is standing against God the Savior from the biblical view. While doing so,there'll be no salvation at all.
