Manage episode 317724401 series 3122848
Whilst the cross has mostly been used as a symbol of service and sacrifice, it has also been turned into a symbol of power. Seeking military, political, or social power in the name of the cross of Christ is blasphemy. Committing acts of violence, greed, imperialism, judgement, genocide, superiority, and power over people in the name of the cross is the antithesis of following Jesus.
