“Against the use of the cross as a tool of intimidation
The cross is a symbol of Christianity to remembering the place where Jesus Christ died as a substitute for the sins of mankind. However in its origins, the cross did not have this same meaning to the Roman Empire as its inventor. Then it served as a meanof execution and even very cruel.
Ever since, to the Christiansthe cross represents the monument place how salvation derived and where Jesus Christ was sacrificed. For many people, the cross remains unacceptable. The apostle Paul who himself brought the Gospel to the land of Illyria writes about two worldviews regarding the cross. “The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).
Recently we have witnessed how the cross is an obstacle to certain people. The daily “Zëri” raised their voices against the discrimination that the Protestant community is experiencing. Surprisingly, now the journalist Albana Xharra is targeted in particular by the people who use the cross as a tool.
The message of the cross is a message of God’s love for man, by no means should be used to incite hatred of man against man.
