No, I only believe in the Power of The Holy Spirit and the Power of The Godhead i.e. The Father and The Son through that same Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the only Power the cross has no power.
The 'power' of the cross sounds like meaningless mainstream Christian jargon to me.
1 Cor 1:18 (KJV) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God
The term "preaching of the cross" is preaching the Goodnews of what took place by way of the Lord's death and resurrection, not the cross itself. The cross or better translated from the Greek "The Stake" has no power in itself. Always remember that His death is only half the story and that His resurrection is equally as important.
Many question whether He actually died on a cross and they believe it was just a wooden stake. I keep an open mind on this point as I do not feel that it is that important.
No, because the cross was just an ordinary object of execution. It's only considered 'special and sacred and holy' by some, because the Lord Jesus Christ was executed on it. But let's be aware that the cross didn't have any mystical powers. It wasn't the cross that saved everyone.
tl;dr How can I believe in the power of something, when it has no power to begin with?
If you mean do I believe that by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ being crucified, being a blood sacrifice to pay the price for the sins of the believers of the Trinity, (God, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit) so they might enter into Heaven to be with the Father, then yes. Do I believe the cross itself holds some power, no. That is not found to be scripturally correct!

Matthew mentions that all the disciples fled away from the scene of the Cross, when Jesus was hanging in agony on the Cross and needed them the most.Was the response of the disciples natural, appropriate and/or exemplary?Do you expect they should have done more than they did?Thanks

Do you believe in the Trinity and why?What many people do not realize is that the Trinity is dogma from those not empowered by the same spirit as those that wrote the Bible. It is not sacrosanct. I happen to believe that Jesus is the Son of God and one in the same as God and that it is a Holy...

On the one hand, they were murderers so they should go to Hell, but on the other hand their actions were necessary in order for Christianity to come into existence so they should go to Heaven. If you are Christian and believe that Christianity is the one true religion, then what do you think...
