Origins of the Cross?

edited December 1969 in Coptic Orthodox Church
I read something a little earlier about this topic found in this link:

Under the title: "CROSS," how much of this is actually true? Because my friend told be about this, but I have a hard time believing that the symbol of the cross (or even the sign of the cross) was never used before the 4th century or that Constantne was a pagan sun worshiper.


  • may be because we didnt believe in it till Jesus came and died on it   
  • here is an article from a Catholic source, about the sign of the cross, and the early origins of crosses in Christian worship and decoration.

    Sign of the Cross

    the symbol was indeed used very early in Christian history, before Constantine.
