Does the Cross Offend You?

The only thing about Christ’s bloodshed and death that should offend you is the fact that you--just like I--put Him there. Just like Mel Gibson made it a point to hold the nails that were hammered into Christ’s flesh in the film, so we also held the nails and hammered them in. Maybe not literally, but it was our sin that put Him there. Perhaps we are offended at the thought of the Cross because we know we should have been there instead.
