Why do most Mormons have an aversion toward the cross as a Christian symbol?
I don’t see crosses on top of LDS church steeples. Instead of a cross on LDS temples there’s an angel with a horn. And it’s rare to see a Mormon wearing a Christian cross as a piece of jewelry – like on a necklace or bracelet.
Mormons believe the cross symbolizes Jesus’ death. As Latter-day Saints they claim to worship the risen Christ and focus on the living Savior.
I can appreciate the emphasis on the resurrected Lord, but there seems to be more of a reason why the cross is generally ignored in LDS theology.
Are you aware that in early church history the cross was a big part of the LDS culture?
