RADIO PROGRAM No. 53 - The Meaning of the Cross

[This is the second of a special group of programs on the subject, "The Values We Cherish," in which some basic elements of the Christian religion are being discussed.]

HOST: Perhaps no event in human history has made a deeper impression on human hearts than the crucifixion of Christ Jesus. For millions of Christians, the cross is the shining symbol of unselfish love. But what Christian is there who, in his more humble moments, doesn't come face to face with the question: What does the cross mean to me today?

However much individual beliefs and creeds may differ, there are probably millions of Christian men and women around the world who take the view expressed in the book "The Protestant Faith," in which its author, George W. Forell, says, "Old Testament and New Testament looked at from the Cross proclaim that at the root of man's difficulty lies the fact that man is at odds with God."
