Cross Division


A 40-foot memorial cross erected in Bladensburg, Maryland to honor WWI veterans is in danger of being torn down or removed.  Currently (2019) a case is before the US Supreme Court to determine if it violates the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment.

In 1913 George Bennard penned the words to the beautiful hymn that is so meaningful to the people of God. He described an old rugged cross on a hill far away that was an emblem of suffering and shame. Stained by blood so divine it was despised by the world. But for the ransomed child of God it has a wondrous attraction because it was on that old rugged cross the Jesus suffering and died, to pardon and sanctify me.

The offense of the cross is still real today. A case presently before the Supreme Court (2019) concerns a memorial cross in Bladensburg, Maryland that may have to be torn down or moved to satisfy the desires of “The American Humanist Association.”

Objective of the Lesson: Born again Christians must realize that because Christianity is an inclusive-exclusive religion the cross will always be an offense to unbelievers. We must bear the cross of Christ with grace always displaying the character of His nature in times of adversity.
