OP: Sorry, we kinda hijacked your thread with our discussion. I do apologize, but I thank you immensly for providing the thread which has opened up this great discussion.
Also, just to add, to the original conversation, I do not believe that the "thorn" is one of the original thorns, for a couple of reasons. One,
many did not believe He (Jesus) was anything special, so what would be the purpose of saving any part of His cruxification. Two, God tells us in
scripture that worshipping idols/relics is wrong and I personally think that He (God) wouldn't want things like that to survive so that His Son would
be worshipped and not the item. I think this is also why the "ark of the covenant, noah's ark, His burial wrappings", although some have said they
have been found, with any kind of certainty and 100% proof been found. God knows what kind of "people" we are and our obsession with objects and
our idol worship of them. Just look at how we treat money lol. Certainly objects of this nature, His cross, crown of thorns, etc., would be treated
in the same manner and take away from where our worship and focus should be, His Son. But I could get to Heaven and Jesus tell me I was wrong and
that is one of the thorns, at which point I will say, "my bad, I was wrong" lol.
