Cross; Official Church Doctrine about the – Mormon Quotes

Mormon Doctrine, pg. 172; “Frequently this practice of dwelling on the personal death struggle of our Lord has caused these churches to put sculptured representations of Christ on their crosses, thus forming so called crucifixes. All this is inharmonious with the quiet spirit of worship and reverence that should attend a true Christian’s remembrance of our Lord’s sufferings and death. In fact, the revealed symbolism to bring these things to the attention of true worshipers is found in the ordinance of the sacrament.”

1 Corinthians 1:18-19For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

I can’t speak for churches that use the crucifix.  I can speak for myself and say that if I don’t stop each and every single day to focus upon Jesus on that cross for me I am lost and unfocused.
