QUESTION: (tape) I read the other day that a man said that the cross of the Christians is a pagan emblem.
ANSWER: Well, never pay any attention to what a man says because they aren’t always right. The Jews right now are raising lots of talk about the Cross. It says here that the cross is a pagan emblem and the Cross Jesus was nailed to was straight up and down thing like a tree. they nailed him to a tree just like a post. But the fact remains that the Roman Cross that they used to crucify criminals on was a stretched out cross. And they took the full weight of the body on the hands stretched out to add to the pain of the death. Also the Cross used earlier than this even by some areas of Rome, was a square cross. It had its arms set in the middle and they nailed people to this.
The pagans of India didn’t use crosses; in China, they didn’t use crosses; they didn’t use the cross in Africa. So I am not convinced that pagans used the cross. Our race always used the cross. The Rose Crux of the heavens is the Gospel message of the heavens. So God as he laid the constellations out marked the cross as having significance as an emblem as it related to earth. This was the Rose Cross.
