Why do Orthodox have Christ on the Crucifix at home and in Churches?

There is no Pascha without Good and Holy Friday! There is no glorious resurrection without the cross. It is a reminder of His sacrifice for us and the whole world.

St. Paul's 2 Epistle to the Corinthians, " . . . but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles . . ."

Yes, they are two sides of the same coin.

We bow to Your Cross, O Lord, and we praise Your holy resurrection.--Hymn of veneration of the cross

There is no Pascha "on earth", with Good and Holy Friday representing the day of Christ's crucifixion "on earth", "according to the Scriptures". (i.e. 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21 - "quenches" the Spirit "on earth" -"despises" prophecies "on earth" - 100% deception "on earth" - Pontifex Maximus Caesar Constantine's huge lie "on earth" - day of Christ's most holy passion "on earth" - not a "truer" order "according to the doctrine of Caesar "on earth" - Reference: Pontifex Maximus Caesar Constantine's (decree - order - epistle) to the Church's (West/East) bishops shortly after the Council of Nicaea A.D. 325)

There is no Pascha "on earth", with Good and Holy Friday representing the day of Christ's crucifixion "on earth", according to the "doctrine of Christ". (i.e. Matthew 26:2; Mark 8:31) (2 John 9) Jesus, the Messiah (Matthew 16:16), never authorized "oral traditions" of men "on earth" that "nullify" the word of God "on earth" (Matthew 15:7-9); (John 4:22-24).

There is no Pascha "on earth", with Good and Holy Friday representing the day of Christ's crucifixion "on earth", according to the Gospel of John. (i.e. John 4:22-24) The Apostle John never authorized pagan worship rituals "on earth" in the name of Christ.

There is no Pascha "on earth", with Good and Holy Friday representing the day of Christ's crucifixion "on earth", according to the Apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) The Apostle Paul never authorized pagan worship rituals "on earth" in the name of Christ.

There is no Glorious Resurrection of Christ on earth, without the Cross of Christ on earth being represented on the correct historical day of the week. (i.e. Kade Rystalmane is correct - the historical day of Jesus Christ's most holy passion "on earth" - the fifth day of the week - Nisan 14 - Reference: Key of David illustrations - google signature line)

How soon one forgets, that Christian saints "on earth" worshiped God "on earth" "according to the Scriptures". (Nisan 14 - Christ our Passover - Spirit of the law only, always!)

True worshipers "on earth" place 100% of their faith that Christ said "after two days" in (Matthew 26:2 NKJV), and true worshipers "on earth" place 100% of their faith that Christ meant "after two days" in (Matthew 26:2 NKJV). (i.e. Christ's witness "is" true "on earth" as in heaven)

True worshipers "on earth" place 100% of their faith that Christ said "after three days" in (Mark 8:31 NKJV), and true worshipers "on earth" place 100% of their faith that Christ meant "after three days" in (Mark 8:31 NKJV). (i.e. Christ's witness "is" true "on earth" as in heaven)

Do not hold onto Good Friday in Christian worship practice, because it is not good! (1 Thessalonians 5:19-21)
