Many People Don’t Know What The Cross Means

Many people in our culture today don’t know what the cross means, or what Christians believe about it. A study was conducted about five years ago of people in Australia, Germany, India, Japan, England and the U.S. to find how much they recognized certain symbols. Ninety-two percent could identify the interlinking circles as the symbol for the Olympics. Eighty-eight percent could identify the golden arches as the symbol for MacDonald’s. But only half of the people could identify the cross as symbolic of the Christian faith. (Baptists Today 9/21/95)
