History shows that the cross was used centuries before Christ. For example, in the British Museum is a statue of the Assyrian king Samsi-Vul, son of Shalmaneser. Around his neck is an almost perfect Maltese cross. On an accompanying figure, that of Ashur-nasir-pal, is a similar cross. The ancient Greek goddess Diana is pictured with a cross over her head, in much the same way the "Virgin Mary" is represented by many medieval artists. Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, is often pictured wearing a headdress adorned with crosses. Different types of crosses were used in Mexico centuries before the Spaniards arrived. The Egyptians used cross symbols in abundance, as did the Hindus.
The surprising thing is that the Christian use of the cross did not begin until the time of Constantine, three centuries after Christ. Archaeologists have not found any Christian use of the symbol before that time. According to one writer (W. E. Vine, Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, article "Cross"), the cross as a "Christian" symbol was taken directly from the pagans. The New Testament does not specifically describe the instrument upon which Christ died, though Acts 5:30; 10:39; and 13:28-29 refer to it as a "tree." The Greek word xulon, translated "tree" in these verses, can mean a stick, club, tree, stake, or other wooden articles.
There is absolutely no evidence that God's true church ever used the cross symbol for any purpose. Nowhere does the Bible command its use. It surely would if God expected this of Christians.

Stephen Harper gave a speech this past friday to 3000 delegates. While Mr Harper stroked his ego he also avoided any personal responsibility or accountablity of the political scandals going on with his party.Instead he bragged about may so called accomplishments while blaming the Liberals and NDP for the Tory parties blemishes and scandalous short comings including criminal acts carrired out by some party membersHarper's Con speech sounded so wonderful and really emphasized on their so called hard work. In fact Mr Harper's speech was delivered as if he and the Conservative party were not immersed in countless scandals such as with Mike Duffy, Patrick Brazeau, Pamela Wallin, Nigel Wright, Dean Del Mastro to name a few.And the kicker is that Mr Harper was so busy blaming the NDP and the Liberals he was also lying his face off. As an example he mentioned soldiers coming home with honors when there is a current lawsuit against the Federal Gov of Canada over benefits and that the Feds are kicking our injured soldiers out of the military before they can qualifiy for their pensions. This is how the Harper party honors and treasures our soliders Canada.The Con parties relationsship with FN's has been flushed down the toilet. Anti Fracking/Pipeline as one example. Its a long list which we will be discussing as well as what Mr Harper did and did not say in his speech on Friday Nov 1, 2013.

The miraculous power of forgiveness was released into the world by the prayer Jesus spoke as He hung wounded and dying on the cross. He said, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34) He knew and understood that those who were wounding and crucifying Him were fulfilling God’s master plan of salvation through forgiveness for all who would believe in Him as the Son of God. The most powerful words ever spoken, that would change the destiny of mankind is "I Forgive You" Esau forgave Jacob for stealing his birthright. Joseph forgave his brothers who sold him into slavery and told there father he was dead. Moses forgave Miriam who despised his wife because she was an Ethiopian woman (a woman of color) and became jealous of his relationship with God. Journey with us as we pray this life changing prayer of forgiveness.
Hab. 2.4 says Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by faith.
Glory to G we are justified in Christ Jesus!
