I for one would argue that:
A) There is NOTHING new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9) and therefore...
B) A "new" symbol has never been and cannot be created within the human mind to represent a chosen ideal...thus...
C) A "cross", a "fish", or even a "hexagram/ magen David/ Seal of Solomon" can be worn by a true believer regardless of its PAST meanings, so
long as the wearer explicates his/her OWN understandings/beliefs of such chosen symbol to both themselves and those who might be curious enough to
ask....as is exactly which has been done since a large part of the contemporary "church" have taken to wearing the "IXOYE/Ichthys" or crucifix.
Honestly, for all we truly know Christ was nailed to a tree and it's not so farfetched to realize that a universally embraced symbol such as the
cross has been utilized in Tammuz worship and astrological initiations in the past and only in recent times been commandeered by His church...after
all, there plenty of evidence for such pre-historic use in a symbol like the Swastika...why not a "Christian" symbol?
I, for one, choose to wear a Triquetra...to ME it represents both the unity of a person's mind/body/spirit as well as that person's
mind/body/spirit's connection and gratitude to what is now called the Trinity. Sure, it began as a pagan symbol...but to be real: what hasn't?
Christianity has done this with quite a few pagan symbols (probably ALL of them) if you'd be willing to investigate.
There will never be anything new under this old sun; ideologies may change, mankind does not.
