While listening to a Christian radio station I heard lyrics in the song. I can't remember the exact song. But I clearly heard tree. And I asked my self what tree? Why are they talking about a tree? When did the cross become a tree? Does anyone know the reasoning behind this ?

Galatians 3:13
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Deuteronomy 21:23
His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

Cross was wood. Wood comes from a tree.

Hmmm... I will have to study on that. But don't you think that in a way it's degrading the Cross? Specially looking at it from a perspective that if little children are taught thru a song on he died on a tree... It somewhat slowly without us noticing it starts to change the biblical truth? Well I do have to pray and study on it thank you for the verses.
