It may have changed meaning but I still don't think we should be wearing them or using them. It is still a pagan idol with pagan origins. That'd be
like arguing for the changed Sabbath day (although the motivation for doing so was pagan) that the Catholics instituted (and Western Christianity™
completely adopted) under the guise of "It was the day that Christ arose (allegedly)," which would be the same as saying "The meaning changed."
That's how I view it. The use of the Cross as a symbol of faith is unscriptural and pagan.
Don't get caught up in superstition. The sabbath day is kept for different peoples on different days. Ultra-orthodox jews take it dusk Wednesday to
dusk Thursday. Orthodox jews take it dusk Friday to dusk Saturday. No particular day was mentioned in the OT, just that if you work 6 days rest on the
7th if possible. You can't make a living doing that in todays world and your family survive, some people have to work nonstop and get no days off or
their families will starve often needing 2 incomes from mother and father to make ends meet. You are putting ceremonial law above moral law and Christ
was against doing that, that is why he criticized lawgivers like the pharisees for their traditions of men, they had no mercy. David and his followers
stole the showbread out of the tabernacle when they needed food and were starving while on the run from Saul, yet he remained guiltless and sinless
when he broke the 8th commandment.
1 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. 2 And
when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!”
3 But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: 4 how he entered the house of God and
ate the showbread which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? 5 Or have you not read in the law
that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? 6 Yet I say to you that in this place there is One greater than
the temple. 7 But if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. 8 For the Son
of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”
Read the whole chapter for clarification. I'll post an audio lecture by Chuck Missler on here for you to listen to, it's long but worth it. Just
like people who say Sunday worship is the mark of the Beast because you're worshipping Sol Invictus, with that circular logic Saturday worship is the
mark of the Beast because you are worshipping Saturnus. See what i am saying? We're supposed to worship everyday and keep everyday holy to him. He
paid my debt 2000 years ago and set this captive free.
Anyway here's the audio lecture:
