OK. Let's talk about ordinary people, the commoners.
If a loved one died in a car crash, would you wear a car necklace to remember them.
If a practice is ridiculous, then it deserves mocking.
This post of yours shows a severe lack of understanding.
Jesus didn't die accidentally like in a car accident. He embraced the cross.
He could have run away. He could have cut everyone down who was trying to
kill him. But he didn't. He went through with it because He knew it was what
He had to do. that's VERY different than someone getting into a car accident.
The cross being in Christian homes is a reminder of Jesus sacrificing Himself for others.
It's a sign of JESUS LOVE. It's a reminder of how much He gave up for others and that
we should 'take up our cross (whatever it is) and carry it' like He did.
It's a reminder that there are evil people in the world and that life won't be pleasant,
but that we must do what we have to. It's inspirational.
