Ok I am going to rant a little. As it gets closer to Easter I have been hearing more and more songs about “The Cross”. Like the song “Wonderful cross“. and others. I visited a church this weekend with some family and it seemed like almost every song talked about “the cross”. And no, I am not picking on that church. Our church sings songs about the cross also. At times it almost seems like we are worshiping a cross instead of Christ. Worshiping wood instead of our Lord. The cross it self has nothing to do with our salvation. It’s about Jesus death and resurrection. So why put so much emphasis on the cross?
Before you start sending me comments about the symbolism: I ask you, why do we need symbolism, we have Christ? Wood or God? What do you think? 🙂
