Who Needs the Cross?

Here is the ultimate example of a Christ-less church. A church in Michigan has decided that having a cross on their building is too alienating. They now accept all religions because they want to be "inclusive" and just want to "make a difference."

Here is Wretched Radio's commentary on the story:

I have to agree with David Wisen from the first video clip. While I wouldn't say this church has integrity, I do think it's good that they removed the cross from their church. It would be more of an abomination for them to continue to exist in the name of Christ while teaching such lies. If they are going to include everyone in their eventual spiral to Hell, they should not be doing so in the name of Christianity. What terrible ignorance this church must have of the Word of God! Jesus said that only He is the "way, the truth, and the life." He never urged us to be inclusive of all religions and to just get along. No, His message was one that would ultimately lead to division and hatred of His followers by the world. But hey, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, right? Unfortunately one day these people will find themselves unable to ever escape the eternal heat of Hell.

“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. John 15:18-19

34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person's enemies will be those of his own household. 37 Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. Matthew 10:34-38
