It is not the cross but the sacrificial death of Christ on the cross that had saved and will save believers in Christ. Therefore, the proposition that the cross is a manifestation or extension of the ‘power of God’ has no logical basis for Roman Catholics to kneel before it.
Besides, said teaching simply limits the limitless power of God because His power manifests in everything.
Also, based on the above premise, it follows that it is not good for one to serve, kneel and bow down before the cross located in the altar, streets, etc. while attending mass or praying publicly in the streets or inside the alleged churches or Roman Catholic buildings.
Neither, it is good for one to make a ‘sign of the cross’ when praying because by doing so, the southern cross is being revered instead of God. In other words, one could become a ‘cross believer’ instead of a ‘God believer’ by doing so.

Iglesia ni Cristo, Inc. (INC) is now on a ‘last’ show of force against Roman Catholicism, this February 15, 2014. After showing its political might in Philippine elections by endorsing the already “winnable” candidates in an attempt to project the invincibility of INC factor, the alleged church of Christ is embarking now on a show of force “walkathon” or “worldwide walk” purportedly to raise funds in support Typhoon Yolanda victims.
Yolanda victims must be thankful then that that the efforts are allegedly intended for

What are the historical achievements of the ‘cross’ and ‘rosary’ for them to be elevated to the status of ‘holiness’? Do we have any historical answer? In the case of the cross, historically, Christ and some of his followers were crucified at the cross.
Will such achievements of killing the true believers of God by way of the cross enough to make it holy? Is it logical then to call it unholy killer, having been used to kill and therefore, an instrument which is in conflict with Christ and his followers?
In the case of rosary, history tells that it was used to convert Albigensians to Roman Catholicism.”x x x it was given to the Church by St. Dominic, who had received it from the Blessed Virgin as a means of converting the Albigensians and other sinners.” (theholyrosary.org)
But who are these Albigensians?
A “murderer” cross to “holy” cross-the God of Roman Catholicism? Was there a transformation of the “cross” to holiness? With all due respect toand believers on the image of the cross, the logical proposition is: ” Roman Catholic “Alleged” Church had introduced to this world the combined force of life and death.
These are the physicaland the cross, in a single system of faith-the Roman Catholicism. As a force of death, cross was instrumental in the death of Christ”.
When Christ died, he was resurrected to life by the Father in heaven but when the cross lost its force against early Christians, who were never afraid to die on the cross, it was resurrected to life by the Holy Father in Roman Empire, by way of adopting it as a symbol of Christianity.through the
By comparison, Christ called the Father in heaven as “Father” but Roman Catholicism is calling the Father in Vatican City as “Holy Father”.
Also, the body of Christ is not being called holy but the cross became “holy”. Roman Catholicism called it “holy” cross. Hence, a killer became holy.
Aside from calling it holy, Roman Catholicism uses “The Name” of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, whenever followers pray, by starting and ending the prayer with a “sign of the cross” and at the same time, uses “The Name” by reciting “In the name of the Father, of the Son, and the Holy Spirit..Amen”.
This ceremony spiritually put the image of the cross over and above “The name” considering that cross is only one and “The Name” being quoted pertains to three persons, thus, the cross, by way of a traditional deception, is being phrased three time (3x) more than “The Name”.
Also, the symbolism in prayer has the semblance of (more…)
