This board is intended as a community to discuss the topic of the Christian Cross as it relates to the claims of Jehovah's Witnesses. Contributors, those with questions, and researchers are welcome. Please respect all contributors. This board is not run or moderated by a Jehovah's Witness or an ex-Jehovah's Witness (apostate). Bad behavior will not be tolerated. The general topic is if the instrument of Jesus' execution was indeed a cross, or a simple stake as claimed by the Watchtower Society. Arguments about how some modern particular group uses the cross in worship are pointless and have no bearing on any historical facts or lack of them. This project began as an independent "fact checking" inquiry into the claims of Jehovah's Witnesses that knocked at my door one day. I was surprised to discover that almost all of the "facts" presented by their publications did not stand up to scrutiny, and aim to discuss these arguments or any new ones that contributors may offer. This is done in accordance with 1 Thessalonians 5:21 to test/prove all things. The Watchtower Society tells us that those that believe Jesus was executed on a cross are not "true Christians" and that churches that teach this are withholding the truth. With such a serious charge made, this topic is worthy of discussion and investigation.
