For centuries, people are used to believing that ‘cross’ is a symbol of Christianity, not knowing that it is the ‘sign of the beast’. Also, every Ash Wednesday, Roman Catholics were taught to receive the same, by way of marking with ashes with a ‘cross’ sign in the forehead and at the same time, reminded of the ‘ashes to ashes’ doctrine of the Roman Catholicism.
With this ceremony, Roman Catholics are in conformity of being finally turned into ashes if they receive the mark instead of resurrecting them into life, which is being being offered by Christ.
Taking note that this ceremony is on voluntary basis because not all Roman Catholics received said mark on Ash Wednesday, those who received it are already on estoppel of receiving life.
In other words, it is less likely for them to be saved as they have already consented to receive the ‘sign of the beast’. Christ respects one’s freedom of choice and by setting aside his words and at the same time believing not on his words, anyone is free to do it subject to consequences.
