Why is the cross called the Christian cross when it was the Romans who used it?
Why praise this symbol when this was the tool that was used to murder Jesus? Like when Catholics make the sign of the cross. It makes little sense to me why the cross is so symbolic.

It is also known as a Roman cross. The cross is supposed to be symbol of sacrifice and that sacrifice is the reason for the churches existence. The earliest records of the cross Jesus was crucified on was described as being in the form of a capital T and not the cross that we're used to seeing.

It represents Jesus death.
That's why Christian churches don't put the his body hanging on the cross because he rose from the dead and congquered the cross!
So the cross represents for us his great victory over death.

Because It's most symbolic event to christians as they believe Jesus died for their sins.

It's now seen a symbol what we deserved but yet we won't receive that punishment.
