According to the Bible human beings are not simply imperfect creatures that need improvement, we are rebels who must lay down our arms. The only way out of our human condition is to “lay down our arms,” acknowledge that we are on the wrong track and allow God to work whatever changes are needed in […]

Who, for some inane reason, display, wear, build, ornament and worship the horrific torture implement he was NAILED to and left to chronically die slowly upon after torturously being fed vinegar. 

I wear an Angel round my neck. I detest the Cross. I cannot believe God will condemn me for that feeling.

No, God is not going to judge you on the basis of your expressed thoughts.

Perhaps. in return, you could be a bit less judgmental of people who differ with you.

You used the word "inane."  Here are some synonyms:
 
silly · foolish · stupid · fatuous · idiotic · absurd · ridiculous · ludicrous · laughable · risible · imbecilic · moronic · cretinous · unintelligent · witless · asinine · pointless · senseless · frivolous · nonsensical · brainless · mindless · thoughtless · vacuous · vapid · empty-headed · childish · puerile · infantile · jejune

I think that wearing something around our neck might not really indicate our spiritual life, or our standing with God. Jesus never once says "let your cross shine" or "let your angel shine." Jesus wisely admonishes to "let your light shine." Isa 53 wisely describes just how repulsive people generally find the cross, yet it was God's opportunity to let the Light of Christ shine. The entire Bible, all of its prophecy is centered around "Christ and Him crucified." (Gal 6;14) All of the Bibles prophecies and doctrines are central to the cross, and can be rightly called HIS Story.
