Can we make a cross? Some people say that we should not make a cross, but I believe it is a good way to remember Jesus.
There is nothing wrong with making a cross and using it as a reminder of Jesus’ death and return to life.
The early church used the cross this way. Here is an inscription of a cross in stone that dates from the early Christians.
The symbol for “Alpha” is on the left side of the “X” cross and “Omega” is on the right side. Revelation 1:8 says that Jesus is the alpha and omega. He is the beginning and the end. The cross has been used by many Christians as a reminder of Jesus’ sacrifice and return to life.
It would be wrong to have a cross if you worshipped it or thought that it had some special magical power or gave you a special benefit of some kind such as “protection,” “blessing,” or “favor.” If a person honors the cross in some special way, then it becomes an idol and this would not please the Lord Jesus.
A cross is just a symbol of Jesus’ death and return to life. Some crosses depict Jesus hanging on them. This should not occur, since Jesus is no longer on the cross. He returned to life and is now in heaven. If you have a cross, do not worship it.
