Difference between a Crucifix and a Cross
Ive always, in my heart, viewed an empty cross and crucifix differently...

When I see a Crucifix (Christ stretched on a cross) Im am saddened and reminded of His death.. In fact, it almost feels as if someone is celebrating the death of Christ...

When I see an empty Cross, I see it as a celebration of his resurrection..

Does anyone else have seperate feelings when they see these two different, yet similar, symbols of Christianity??

An empty cross does not, necessarily, imply a resurrection. The cross was empty BEFORE the person was placed upon it, was it not?

The Christian cross, with impostor or without, is the dumb man's imitation of the world tree. That is some serious stuff now.

Re: Difference between a Crucifix and a Cross
guess it's just what you are used to....i grew up seeing the crucifx every day. it did not hold a negative connotation to me at all.

but, if you are used to seeing the cross, i can see why a crucifix might be 'morbid' looking - whereas to me, because of my early conditioning, a cross looks like it's missing something :)

The Bible says that Jesus was
shamed 1 time. Those that
keep Him on a Cross are
continuing to bring shame.

Look at the crucifix that
the popes carry around...
the bent cross.

Re: Difference between a Crucifix and a Cross
I thought the orgiginal Greek word for Jesus' torture device was "stauros," which refers to an upright pole or stake, NOT a cross beam device.
Jesus wasn't really referred to being on a "cross" until after the 'Constantinization' of Christianity when Roman/Pagan religion was blended with Apostolic Christianty.

"In the beginning, there was nothing. Then God said, "Let there be light". And there was still nothing but you could see it." Groucho Marx


"There is no greater drama in human record than the sight of a few Christians, scorned or oppressed by a succession of emperors, bearing all trials with a fierce tenacity, multiplying quietly, building order while their enemies generated chaos, fighting the sword with the word, brutality with hope, and at last defeating the strongest state that history has known. Caesar and Christ had met in the arena, and Christ had won." - Will Durant

EPISTLE OF CLEMENT TO THE CORINTHIANS (dated 95 A.D.)
He quotes from from the Synoptic Gospels, Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, Ephesians, Titus, Hebrews, and 1 Peter

LETTERS OF IGNATIUS (dated A.D. 115) He quotes from from Matthew, John, Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus So much for your theory.
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
