A love and devotion toward this sacred sign is the mark of a true follower of Christ.

The ignorance here is astounding...There is no sacred sign of a true follower (disciple) of Jesus Christ...

Love and devotion to a 'sacred sign' is idolotry...

The sign of the cross may stand for something for a Catholic or it may be a way to attract attention to show yourself off as being religious...

Like the story says, you teach it to babies who don't have a clue what it means...

Out of one side of the mouth you say it is the sign of a true follower of Christ, and out of the other side of the mouth you then claim you teach it to babies who don't know Jesus Christ...

The hatred here is astounding. Jesus said love one another.

Christ knows them. He knows them from before their conception. He creates them.

With regards to the second part, how would one know? Wouldn't making that call be unjust, to say the least?

A child must be lead in all things...

Bravo!

It takes a real Protestant to protest the sign of the cross.

A perfect preface for your post.

Like the story says, you teach it to babies . . .

The story doesn't say that.

Rev. 7:

After these things, I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that they should not blow upon the earth nor upon the sea nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having the sign of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying: Hurt not the earth nor the sea nor the trees, till we sign the servants of our God in their foreheads.

***The ignorance here is astounding***

We’ll do our best to educate you.

***There is no sacred sign of a true follower (disciple) of Jesus Christ...***

Documentation going back to the second century, along with certain allusions to having the sign of God on one’s forehead in the OT esp in Deuteronomy.

***Love and devotion to a ‘sacred sign’ is idolotry...***

Whereas Bibliolatry is A-OK in the Church of Iscool (population one)?

***The sign of the cross may stand for something for a Catholic or it may be a way to attract attention to show yourself off as being religious...

In the Church of Iscool (population one), aren’t you in the front row?
