cross about cross wrote: The cross is made by men on earth. Thus it is "graven" by sinners. Being therefore a graven image it is forbidden by God. "Exod 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness OF ANYTHING that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:" This does not mean carry a lump of wood or gold or silver or ..... "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." I thought the Reformation had sorted out all the idolatry folks use.
more reply later on the issue of the cross, Mike from NY makes the point I was trying to say. Not sure what you are saying cross about the cross, everything I wear was by your definition graven by man, the car I drive, the house I live in, the computer I am typing on. So, you are losing me with your point, forgive me please for not understanding
