    Nice thread Nephilim :)

    Indeed, it doesn't really matter if Jesus died on a stake or a cross. What is important is who He is and what His death means.

    Of course, the WT has their own different view on who Jesus is i.e. "a god" and not God.

    Their clearest statement of their view is the NWT's John 1:1 which concurs with the spiritist/medium Johannes Greber's own "translation".

    Back to the cross, ask a JW what is the Greek for "cross"?

    Likely, none know the answer but quite simply it is stauros, there is no separate word for cross.

    Their main point of reasoning starous means stake is correct but their thinking that it doesn't mean cross is totally false.

    Every effort of the WT is to keep the JWs away from the true gospel, the cross is one huge signpost pointing the wrong way in JWsville.

    As it is, the cross is the greatest symbol of God's love for mankind and the power of us who are saved by it.

    1 Corinthians 1:18 (English Standard Version)

    Christ the Wisdom and Power of God
    18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

    In esoterica the cross represents union of the male and female, opposite polarities, the same as yin and yang. The stauros is male and the crossbeam is female. Intersection of the two is the key to enlightenment. The same symbolism is in the Star of David, with the intersection of two triangles. Everything the Watchtower does is to intensify what's wrong with religion: Do everything possible to remove the female aspect of God from everything. That's probably the main hidden reason they hate the cross. Their God is angry, male, and narcissist, just like most men today. Or at least that's what they tell the dubs. If you look into Kabbalah, "Jehovah" comes from the Hebrew Iod-Havah, with the Iod being male and the havah female. If you look into Fritz Springmeier's book "Be Wise As Serpents", there is a chapter called "The Cult of the Double-Sexed God Jehovah", you'll see that the WT leadership certainly knew that Jehovah was both male and female. It may seem too subtle to be true, but once you understand a little about metaphysics and the power of thought and emotion, you'll see that this is how religion has shaped human consciousness.
