The great symbol of the Christian church is the cross. The cross consists of two beams - vertical and horizontal. The vertical beam represents the relationship of man to God. The horizontal represents the relationship between man and man. But, the cross is so designed that if the horizontal beam is crooked the vertical beam has to be crooked too. When one is crooked the other is crooked. And that's a very important lesson, because if I'm in a wrong relationship with my fellow believers, I'm in a wrong relationship with God.
