Phallic-masculine meanings of the cross are broadly hinted at in the fifth-century Gospel of Nicodemus, which says Jesus descended into hell and redeemed Adam, together with Old Testament patriarchs, prophets, and fore- fathers, by making the sign of the cross on their foreheads.

Christians like to think that they are superior to pagans, heathens, and jews, but they know so little about their own religion that they do not even realize that most of christianity is actually a bastardization of paganism plus judaism.
Despite what fanatical Christians would have you believe, it is a fact that the original text of the Christian Bible does NOT state that Jesus died on a cross (meaning a structure with 2 intersecting lines).
The cross is originally a pagan symbol and it existed centuries before Christianity, which demonstrates that Christianity is actually a bastardization of paganism.

Stallings acknowledges that the cross is central to teaching people about the saving grace offered through Christ's death and resurrection but, he argued, Christians have also used the cross to send other messages.
