Our church continues to claim our Christianity, but does things to keep the mainstream Christians questioning our devotion to the gospel of Christ. This "aversion" to the cross is crazy. Jesus died in our place so we can live for eternity. He says that NO ONE CAN TAKE HIS LIFE, but that He willingly GAVE UP HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS. Therefore, His death was a gift to humanity, and the essence of the gospel. He died in our stead. Why on Earth should we REJECT the cross? I know Mormons who are outright offended by the cross. I take great exception to that! People use the cross as a symbol of their devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and His gospel. I think it's time to rethink the way we view this sacred symbol!
