Most churches today have a cross as their symbol.
And in the middle of the day, I believe that the cross will have some mysterious power, and I carry it on my body like an amulet.
However, in believing in God, no matter what image you make, you must not bow down or serve that image. Regardless of the reason, the act of making any image to serve God is idolatry that God forbids because it is detestable.

 
Exodus 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 in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me

Deuteronomy 27:15
Cursed is the man who carves an image or casts an idol--a thing detestable to the LORD, the work of the craftsman's hands--and sets it up in secret." Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"

It is common sense that everyone knows that if you worship idols, you cannot be saved. However, it is true that most people make the mistake of worshiping idols without accurately realizing whether or not they are worshiping idols.
According to the teachings of the Holy Spirit and the Bride, the Creator God, all members of the World Mission Society Church of God absolutely reject idolatry by making or serving any image.
In addition, the members strive to realize the holy sacrifice and love of God Ahnsahnghong the Holy Spirit and God the Mother through keeping the Passover of the new covenant and all the feasts of the new covenant.

Matthew 7:21
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

    The cross is not a symbol of the church, but worshiping idols that God said not to do. Instead of making the mistake of committing idolatry, we must keep the New Covenant Passover and feasts to receive God's blessings.

      Right. The cross is absolutely idolatry. According to the ten commandments, we must not an image in the form of anything. The cross cannot be exceptional. Before studying the cross in WMSCOG, I used to carry the cross preciously. But, now I know the cross is the symbol of the curse, I never think it sacred. I give eternal thanks and honor to God for teaching us the truth of the Bible.

        Aman!
        The Bible tells us that heaven is a place where only those who follow the word of God can go.
        The Bible clearly states that idolatry cannot go to heaven.
        Therefore, let's not worship idols or crosses, but obey God's word and go to heaven together!

          Right. The cross is plainly idolatry although many Christian are claiming as a symbol ofthe church. Humanbeing is so week and easily deceived by satan. So if we make in any forms in the church, we might start to worship it as treating as God. So we must not make any forms and put it in the church.


          • 2023-08-10 12:20

            amen. Worshiping the cross is idolatry. God said not to make any idol. How can we be saved in a church that is doing what God forbids us to do? A church that erects a cross does not keep God's commandments.


            • 2023-08-10 13:34

              The cross is an idol strictly forbidden by God.
              Many people think that the cross is a symbol of the church, but it is just an idol. We must commemorate the blood of Christ who sacrificed on the cross, not the 'cross'.


              • 2023-08-10 13:38

                A lot of people argue that it's not service the cross, but in fact, they consider it sacred and they attach a lot of meaning to it. However, the cross is just an idol that God has told you not to serve, regardless of the reason. The World Mission Society Church of God is not serving the cross. Let us obey God's word that says not to worship idols.


                • 2023-08-10 13:37

                  Jesus forgave our sins and sacrificed himself on the cross to save us with his blood. However, many people believe in the cross, not the truth of the Passover that Jesus established with his own blood. That's a very unfortunate reality. Rather than believing in the cross, we must remember and protect God's sacrifice.


                  • 2023-08-10 13:38

                    How can the God who created the heavens and the earth be expressed in the form of creatures on earth!!! So, those who make and serve in the form of things in the sky, on the earth, or in the water are the actions of ignorant and foolish people who do not know God!! As people who know God, we must never make idols!!! Let us be blessed by practicing God's commandments!!!


                    • 2023-08-10 13:38

                      Yes, we must not do something God hate. Idolatry is absolutely what God really hates and cross is idol originated from pagan worship.


                      • 2023-08-10 13:43

                        Thank you, Father God&Mother God, for teaching me this truth!


                        • 2023-08-10 13:40

                          Most churches today have a cross as their symbol. But the CROSS is idolatry.
                          According to the ten commandments, we must not an image in the form of anything.


                          • 2023-08-10 13:40

                            Cross reverence is not a will of God
                            God commanded us not to make a Cross, God banned it
                            When we obey God's words, we can be saved.


                            • 2023-08-10 13:40

                              Worshiping cross is to against God's command. We should not make or worship any form in worshiping God.


                              • 2023-08-10 13:39

                                Many churches in this world worship the cross. However, the cross is absolutely idolatry, not a symbol of the church. The Second Commandment of the Ten Commandments says that those who believe in God must not make for themselves an idol in the form of anything. The cross is also an idol in the form of cross. We must keep the truth of the New Covenant which was established through the sacrifice of Jesus. And Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother restored the law of the New Covenant for God's children. Only the members of the World Mission Society Church of God keep the truth of the New Covenant in this world and preach it to save the world.


                                • 2023-08-10 14:55

                                  Cross is an idol because it is also an image. We should not make the cross!

                                    Baker's Dictionary of Theology 491page
                                    The public use of the cross was adopted by the Christians as a symbol at the time of Constantine.
                                    So the cross has nothing to do with the apostolic faith and is an idol that was created later when the church became secularized.
                                    Let us not worship the cross, as the Church of God teaches us.

                                      The Bible recorded what the early church kept following Jesus' teaching clearly. It didn't have the Cross. Nowadays we can not find the true church like the early church except WMSCOG.
