South Korea’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of South Korea is facing criticism after posting a photo of a Bible in the form of a cross on the Facebook page of its South Korean chapter.
The image was posted on Sept. 10, according to a Facebook post by the church.
The church has not yet responded to CNN’s request for comment.
The photo has attracted hundreds of comments, some of which say the church should stop making the cross a feature of its religious imagery.
Some also suggest the church is insensitive to the plight of the Christians of Somalia.
The cross is an icon of the church and has been used to depict the suffering of the African Christians, according the Global Network for the Promotion of Christian Culture.
However, the church has said that the cross represents the Bible and that it is a sign of love and forgiveness.
“The church is a peaceful place, so the church crosses with the peace,” the church said in a statement.
“When people see a cross, they are reminded that they have a good and loving heart.
The crosses symbolize love and reconciliation.”
But the church’s pastor, Shin Hyun-young, who has been the church leader for the past six years, said that there are more than 300,000 churches in South Korea, and the church would have no problem with the cross.
“I am not making it a feature.
It’s not a religious symbol,” Shin said.
The Bible is the most important book in the Bible.
I have faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior, Shin said, according a video posted on the church website.
“We are not trying to show anyone a cross or show any sort of sign of loving and forgiving.
That’s not how the Bible is written.”
Some members of the Christian community in Somalia have protested the church in recent years, claiming that the church promotes terrorism and idolatry.
The United Nations has said the church was used as a recruiting tool by al-Shabab, an al-Qaida affiliate.
In response, the Evangelical Christian Church in South Africa, which is part of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, announced it would suspend the group’s membership.
“As the church of Christ, the only place we are allowed to practice is in the church itself,” the statement said.
“However, we are not allowed to have symbols or other material that we consider to be offensive.
We also reserve the right to take the appropriate disciplinary measures for any violations that are made.”
