See: http://pamelageller.com/2015/10/swedish-bishop-calls-for-church-to-remove-crosses-to-install-muslim-prayer-space.html/Does Brunne think she would be allowed to even step foot into a Mosque in the Middle East, let alone call the shots? I think she already knows that answer.
Although I have plenty of thoughts on the State of the Church in Sweden and its appointment of Eve Brunne to Bishop I will stick with what originally drew me to the storyLike “Bishop” Brunne, many people around the world including some self- proclaiming Christians are trying to eliminate the cross or cheapen the message of the cross and what it really represents
It troubles me that many of the modern mega churches won’t even have a cross on displayI wonder why atheists protest when the cross at the World Trade Center is displayed at the memorial site. If there is no God, as they say, then this symbol should not offend them, I reason.
“I was literally, after I got out of the car, holding onto the cross. I was clinging to the cross," Gantt said.
They remained that way for five hours until help arrived. During that time, Catchings called his wife thinking it might be the last time he'd ever speak to her.Gantt suffered a broken ankle and hypothermia but is recovering. Her grandson was unharmed.
"Jesus is my Savior," Gantt told WIS-TV. "This story is not about me, this is about what He did to save me."
After watching this story broadcasted by the national news, I was reminded how important the cross and its message are to us who call ourselves Christians1 Corinthians 1:18 says, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
Without the cross and the obedience of Jesus allowing himself to be crucified upon it, we would be lost for all eternity and without hope.
In Jesus’ day, the cross represented the most brutal form of death. Today, the cross should be a continual reminder for all humanity of the love and compassion God had on us the day He allowed His one and only Son to be crucified on that cross as a ransom for our sins. See John 3:16.
As Christians, let us never forget the Cross and its message. And, like Clara Gantt, let us cling to it daily as a reminder of what God has done for us. May the Cross be a constant reminder with us to share God’s love for others who have yet come to know Him.Lord, we thank you for the cross and what you did for us on that cross. The world may try to ban crosses, but we have your cross and its meaning written on our hearts.
May God Bless You,
