Syncan:Lies cant keep up with truth, lies run sprints, but truth runs marathons. Lies lack stamina, that is why you have to let be. Hahahaha, you see.
22On that day, many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons and do many powerful deeds?'
23Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Go away from me, you lawbreakers!’
God or the Bible never authorised the veneration of the cross except one wants to be a lawbreaker of Exodus 20:4
Exodus 20:4's get out clause, is only when you are clearly and without doubt instructed by God to build or create images, as were the examples of the Ark of God aka Ark of the Covenant aka The Ark of the Testimony or the bronze serpent on a pole
Don't worry Matthew 7:22-23 shall not be your portion, if you arent the sort that kneels before a cross/crucifix and kissing it, bow down to the cross, bow down to the Kaaba, touch or kiss the Kaaba which are symbols of worship of gods made of wood/cross and stone/Kaaba as predicted will happen or as prophesied in
Deuteronomy 4:28, Deuteronomy 28:36 and Deuteronomy 28:64
Syncan:Hahahaha, you won't get off lightly
Not always but when it's done, your posts are deconstructed, in order to blow-by-blow reveal the false statements in them, that are unashamedly presented as if they were true

Are a Satan witness? There is no point in all you have said above. You cannot present 'pap' as tea for people to drink. It is not acceptable.
If you don't have any scriptural bases for your belief which I believe is hinged on the bolded, then you might be at loss. Because not all that call him Lord Lord will enter there even though they cast out demons and do so many miracles in his name. Read Mt 7:21-23, that passage seems to be talking to people like you catholics. I think QuentinDay also pointed that to you. Go and meditate on it cos you guy built on an error.
If catholics cannot answer simple questions based on the scripture you quote, then you should hide your heads in shame whenever you want to think you compiled a book(bible) you will never ever understand. Worry you rev fathers and katikism' teachers, tell them Goloyath' Boomark is taunting you guys with questions you cannot answer. I am waiting for your David. Until then, that cross around your neck and altars are idols and for the cursed. Run from idol worship.
1. So are our saying that Jesus was urging his disciples to carve wooden cross for themselves and follow him? Luke 9:23.
2. Are you also saying that Paul was boasting over a piece of wooden cross? Gal 6:14
3. What is the message of the cross? Is the message about how to design, kneel and bow before a man-made cross? 1Cor 1:18-19.

There are two Greek words translated as "cross" which are "stauros" and "xylon" and they are words that actually mean "pole", "timber", "wood", "tree" and "stake."
Archaeologists have unearthed the bones of a man who died by hanging on a pole. The discovery showed that the method of crucifixion or hanging is far different from the ones drawn or illustrated. For example, the foot nails were driven below the ankle and not directly on the foot.
Anyone who is hanged on a pole was seen as cursed or being a criminal. It is unscriptural to hold the cross in regard or to use the cross as a symbol.
Jesus was not the only one who was hanged, people were hanged before and after him. Crucifixion was the common way of execution in ancient Rome. If you think you are regarding Jesus by regarding the cross, it also means you are regarding people who have been hanged on a pole or impaled. Crucifixion was not restricted to Jesus (consider the two criminals that were hanged with him), so regarding the cross as a way of regarding Jesus is also showing regard to all men who were hanged (including criminals and some of Jesus' apostles).
