I've never heard of that explanation of the symbol of the cross, but I really like it.
Yeah its not common knowledge.
Even though the cross symbol is older than Christianity,
Exactly. and who knows how old the symbol of the cross is.
many negative thinkers call the cross a symbol of death, and wonder why Christians use it.
I don't mind seeing the cross as a symbol of death, not at all. Jesus 'died' on the cross, and death is always rebirth in my eyes. Ive always thought when Jesus died on the cross his consciousness burst into life like THE BIG BANG lol He gave not an inch to any other will besides god, and I believe jesus knew exactly what was happneing.
But Christians see it as a symbol of hope and overcoming. I've always thought of it as a positive symbol. Seeing it as energy radiating out is a wonderful idea!
I see the cross as a 'bring it, bring it on' type a symbol LOL
