Would you stop wearing your crucifix jewelry because of someone else meaning of it?
Some people see cross jewelry as a positive meaning, and others see it as a negative meaning. Whats your thoughts about it?
It is used a lot to enhance charisma. in some ways, it's a bit like religious people wearing modest clothes, and yet seeking the most expensive trends, to enhance appearances. Defeats the purpose.
The cross jewelry can be seen as both; indeed a monks Habit can be seen as both. I've said the same thing here so often it will drive people crazy. But then this is a column for Religion and Philosophy.
Cross jewelry can be fashion and as such associated with the things of this world. But again it can also be used for good. With a knife we can stab others, or we can use it to peel fruits. Brings me to what I wish to say.
The spiritual life is an inner journey, and the true experience happens in the Heart and Soul. The cross can and does act as a catalyst for those who seek God; who feels a burning intensity for Truth, for an abiding satisfaction.
It really is an inner journey, and motive and purity of intent, is of paramount importance. This can be lacking with the fashionistas, but never with the devout. Much Love, Brinafr.
I wear whatever I feel like wearing.
It would be none of my business what someone thought of a cross or any other fashion item I was wearing. And if someone was wearing something I personally didn't care for I wouldn't say anything to them because I respect their right to wear whatever they want.
Jewelry is such a small fashion accessory.
For all we know it could be the only thing a parent/grandparent left them. Whether it's sentimental or religious it's still just jewelry.

What is the meaning of the sideways cross necklace that everyone seems to be wearing?Celebrities from Selena Gomez and JLo all seem to be on this fashion trend in jewelry. Why sideways? Does it mean something or is it just a new take on the cross?

According to the increase,the Cross is Idolatry,do you agree?Christianity is a Spiritual Faith,to my knowledge it cannot be represented by materialism.The 10 commandments should take its place,...and will....during the time span and events of the 7 Seal's.

Is it wrong to stop talking to an ex the minute you find out he has met someone new?Personally, the minute I find out that someone who once liked me ..is talking to someone else, then I just decide right then and there that I will no longer keep in contact with them. I guess it hurts to think that...

What else should I do to stop my lingering crush on someone?I don't always talk about my love interests and in fact I try to push away my feelings simply because I'm still young and not allowed to be in a relationship yet. Considering that this someone is a friend of mine and so far I've succeeded...
