The origin of The Cross BY Reno Omokri


As many of you know, I have been in Egypt for a week, investigating the origins of religion. One of the things that will shock many people is the fact that Christ did not die on a Cross! The Scriptures never said so. I can see you now getting agitated. Christ existed. He is the Son of God. He lived, died and resurrected as a propitiation for the Original Sin of Adam and there is no way to God EXCEPT through Christ. I did not say The Bible never said Christ died on The Cross. It does. I said the SCRIPTURES never said so. The Bible is a TRANSLATION of the Holy Scriptures. The word used in Scripture is actually Tree.

The original words used in the original Greek Scripture are staurō, which may mean a pole, or a stake, or the word xylou, which means tree. Read Galatians 3:13 if you really want to know the truth. That was a verse that the translators forgot or perhaps omitted to change. In that verse, the King James Version uses the word ‘Tree’ to indicate where Christ died.

The NIV uses the word ‘Pole’. Acts 5:30, Acts 10:39, Acts 13:29 and 1 Peter 2:24 are other verses that the translators of the King James Version of The Bible forgot to change to Cross. Each of those verses use the correct word, Tree. Believe it or not, for the first 300 years of the Church, the Cross was NOT a Christian symbol. Do not take my word for it. Research it.

Everywhere you see the word ‘Cross’ in The Bible, you are reading a word that is translated from either staurō or xylou. I encourage you to use a Greek dictionary to find out the meaning of both words.

So, where did the Cross originate from? I urge you to look at the attached picture of Ramses the Second discussing with the Thebian Trinity (consisting of Amun, his consort Mut and their son Khonsu). What are they each holding in their right hands? I appeal to you to note that this papyrus painting is over 3000 years old.

In Exodus 20:4, Scripture says we must not make an image of anything on Earth or in heaven or under the Earth. That is why Christ and His disciples and the early Church did not use a Cross, whether with or without the image of Christ on it (The Crucifix). The usage of the Cross and the Crucifix came from the Roman Emperor, Constantine, who was a pagan and claimed to have ‘converted’ to Christianity.

Thus began the introduction of The Trinity and The Cross into Christianity. Both of which, the Romans, and the Greeks before them, copied from the ancient Egyptians, not from Scripture. Many of the translators of Scripture into The Bible were Masons. I beg of you, read Scripture in the original language and your life will never be the same again. It is not so hard.
