The Dividing Symbol Of History
It is impossible to exaggerate the
significance of the cross as a symbol of Christianity. The cross
divides human history between B.C. and A.D., before Christ and after
Christ. Such prominence is justified because Calvary is without
doubt the most important single event in the history of the world.
The cross symbolizes the one event that offers hope to a hopeless
world. The cross is the single solution to the great human
dilemma. How can fallen man, who is an eternal creature, have his
sins forgiven and be restored to the status God gave Adam and Eve?
The cross is the only solution! Consequently, it deserves its status
as the most popular symbol in the world.
