Some people here in Philippines do crucifixion every Good Friday, becoz they thought that if they will follow Jesus' footstep, it will lessen their sin. I dont believe that becoz i never read in the bible that u need to do if what Jesus' did specially crucifixion,and of course it will not lessen our sin.

I am not really into these kind of things. So, practically, I don't believe in it either. But people, we should understand them, that is their faith, right? That is their identity. I know about an African who posted a similar thing. Yes, he too is against it, but I don't agree with what he said. Why? He judged the people participating in the said event even though he know little about Philippine traditions, our history and culture. Do you think he's right? He haven't even tried to research, and or tried to communicate with the people involved. With the way he talk, he claims that he is Christian. But is that what a Christian should do? Judging just by seeing? I have asked about it to a Christian friend and we had the same views. He said "he should have just done it in a nice way, and if he is what he claims he is, he should have provided information". I'm sorry, I'm just disgusted about what that guy did. It felt like an attack on Filipinos.

There are people who are Christian in name only. If you are a true Christian you do not judge people. That is not for a Christian to do. You can give another information but do it in a nice way. Everyone has their own beliefs and just because a person thinks theirs is the right belief gives them no right to put another person down.

The logic of getting crucifixed to lessen your sins is useless for me. I don't really believe in this. What I believe in is that, the important thing to do is repent sincerely for your sins and promise to not do it again.

What Jesus did on the cross for us, Reyshel, was a one time thing. It can not be copied by anyone else. it is finished. And we recieve it by faith the atonement for our sins.
