The cross was a torturous means of executuion but we believers have chosen it as a sign of faith. To remove the cross from our teaching would leave our theology empty and powerless.
No one wants to consider the pain and sacrifice that Jesus endured on the cross for our sins. We would rather hear of his love and provision.
Remember Love Heart, there is NO forgiveness without the shedding of blood.
Everytime you see a cross, remember it really was a means of torture. Jesus was willing to sacrifice his life…the shedding of His blood, that you might have eternal life.
