A cross can be made from a tree. Does the make the cross a tree? shocked
Just like "Suya" can be derived from a cow, if I tell you I bought "Suya" will you tell your friends I bought a cow? grin grin

A cross can be made from a tree alright, but does that make the cross a tree?  

Just like Milk can be derived from a cow, or a goat; if I tell you I bought  "milk" will you tell your friends I bought a cow or a goat?

''The shape of the [two-beamed cross] had its origin in ancient Chaldea, and was used as the symbol of the god Tammuz (being in the shape of the mystic Tau, the intial of his name) in that country and in adjacent lands, including Egypt. By the middle of the 3rd cent. A.D. the churches had either departed from, or had travestied, certain doctrines of the Christian faith. In order to increase the prestige of the apostate ecclesiastical system pagans were received into the churches apart from regeneration by faith, and were permitted largely to retain their pagan signs and symbols. Hence the Tau or T, in its most frequent form, with the cross-piece lowered, was adopted to stand for the cross of Christ.'' -An Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words (London, 1962), W. E. Vine, p. 256.

@Horus
What most So-called christians never realized is the fact that veneration of the cross or any carved image(s) is a form of idolatry.
Ex. 20:4, 5, JB: ''You shall not make yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything in heaven or on earth beneath or in the waters under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them.'' (Notice that God commanded that his people not even -make an image- before which people would bot down.)

  my my what faulty shaky reasoning we have here. . .
  are you now going to doubt that the cross was made of wood? which is gotten from a tree?
a quick wikipedia or google search will show you detailed historical records that people crucified in that time were on crosses made of wood. What are going to say it was made of? iron? gold?

If Jesus was nailed to a cross doesn't common sense tell you it could not have been metal or silver or gold? but that it was wood? or maybe I'm asking too much for the perpetraitors to use their common sense here.

Yes they can call a wooden bench a tree. ”
It is as simple as proving by some mathematical formula how water can remain water and the same time be fire, or how a stone can be a stone and at the same time be water too. I do not think any sensible man on earth can ever conceive such a silly possibility.
The cross is the basic formula and symbol of the Christian Faith this symbol like the trinity/Matrix is beyond the grasp of human reason. One should believe in the doctrine only by one’s heart and mind! undecided undecided undecided undecided undecided period.

Sheep? When did that creep into is'lamic language? Does al'lah now regard his slaves as sheep?

that's true . . . i'm just wondering how a sensible man on earth can also concieve a "silly" possibility that the sun sets in a muddy spring or that moh'ammad actually split the moon or that life gushes from between a man's bosom and his loins . . .

MC Usman:

True. considering the fact that the trinity is never once mentioned in the bible and as a concept has been fully explained more than 10x on this forum i'm not surprised that its still beyond the grasp of NOT human reasoning per se but the reasoning of those for whom pretending that it is beyond reasoning is the only logical way of lending some legitimacy to their own falsehood.

it rather very ridiculous that we talk the issue of religion like this. I wouldn't want to start taking points ut of earlier threads but the issue is @poster what do u know of the religion u follow, i suppose the answer is going to be "i am an atheist" but how and in what form did u become made, don't forget atheist before you, on their dying bed, confessed Jesus Christ to be Lord. Don't be fooled.

Your religion was founded based on injustice:

"For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners,, "Rom. 5:19
"For as in Adam all die, , "1Cor. 15:22
(Did you create or could you control Adam?)

For no fault of yours, so you were condemned right from birth. So are your children yet unborn cry

On the other hand, the religion I follow is a just religion: I wasn't born a sinner but if I sin, I'll pay wink
Your Bible even supports me:
Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his own sin. Deut. 24:16

The concept of Original Sin is to merely to justify why Jesus had to be Murdered by being hung on a tree grin

Cattle; sheep will have to be from this specie. There is a chapter cattle "the Cattle," in the Qur'an. There is also a verse where the Almighty regarded the disbelievers to be worse than cattles: all the species of Cattles. Then there is a verse where the Almighty says that disbelievers will be herded into the fire of hell like how the herder drives the cattles (sheep), to drinking place or pasture.

Olabowale, your hypocrisy is a disgrace. Is a cow the same as a sheep? shocked Pls spare me this deciet!
there is a chapter called cattle in the qur'an, al'lah regards disbelievers worse than cattle, all disbelievers will be herded into fire like cattle . . . where did you answer my question . . .

When did al'lah refer to his slaves as sheep?
