We are not preaching the Gospel of a dead Christ, but of a living Christ who sits
exalted at the Father's right hand, and is living to save all who put their trust in
Him. That is why those of us who really know the Gospel never have any
crucifixes around our churches or in our homes. The crucifix represents a dead
Christ hanging languid on a cross of shame. But we are not pointing men to a dead
Christ; we are preaching a living Christ. He lives exalted at God's right hand, and
He "saves to the uttermost all who come to God by Him.
