The question is do you love God and do you have the courage to read and look at this very short study?
I have asked if Christians believed that the Ten Commandments were still in effect and that we should be living by these commands. The answer is yes because these commands were shown to be what Jesus referred to in Matt 22:36-40 where a lawyer asked Jesus this..."Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?" Jesus said to him," 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' "On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."
Now we can see here that the first part denotes our worship of the creator God as does the first part of the Ten Commandments which gives us instruction on how to worship God and one of them we are addressing here is found recorded in Exod 20:3-6 which states very clearly. "You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved 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; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments."
When God stated that we are not to make any graven likeness He meant that if we use anything visual from the sun, stars, or figures such as a bull or a persons likeness to point to Him we would be diverting ourselves from Him whom is a spirit that can not be seen.
We also find that the apostle Paul stated in Acts 17:29-31 “Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man's devising. 30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead."
Through our research we have found that the word cross in the bible was a mistranslation by William Tyndale however we know that the Greek word he should have translated from is "Stauros" and should be translated as "Stake". Our research has revealed that the true Greek word for cross is "Crux". This word "Crux" cannot be found in any of the original New Testament text at all, but the word Stauros which translates as "Stake" is found in every place where Tyndale used the word Cross.
Now after I have convienced some that the Cross is a Pagan symbol they then state that they may have it in their church and around their neck BUT THEY DO NOT WORSHIP IT! Is this true? Well let's take the Test and see if you are up to it?
Bull standing by covered wagon and not a sin to have as it's not in a place of worship.
Same Bull but with quite a different
background and is what God stated was sin.
God Himself stated that we should destroy those that are in the worship place in
Exod 23:24 "You shall not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do according to their works;
but you shall utterly overthrow them and completely break down their sacred pillars.”
I took a hammer and destroyed that Pagan Bull as God commanded.
Here is a Pagan symbol and is what
God stated was sin.
God Himself stated that we should destroy those that are in the worship place...So!
I took a hammer and destroyed that Pagan symbol as God commanded and if this offends you and the destruction of the bull did not then that means you do worship it!
The question is....Can you see?
Not only do we find that God states we should not make any gods before us but we also find that the cross is a pagan god...
See links below if you want to worship the true creator God.
The Cross symbol ~ Christian or Pagan?
Also Why is it that people need to show sun rays and the pagan cross to worship our creator God?
