Best Answer

What sort of pictures of your ancestors did you chose to keep? Those taken while they were alive and well or pictures taken as they were laying in a coffin?

Best Answer

No pictures of my ancestors they were too poor to afford pictures or portraits. I would've liked pictures of them alive and well though.

Best Answer

Precisely. You wouldn't ever keep a picture of an ancestor lying in a coffin. We remember people for what they were and what they did in life. Except if we want to feel guilty for something: there's the reason why we have crucifixes. Religion torments the people of today for things they had nothing to do with.

Best Answer

Because Christianity teaches us he suffered and died on that cross for the salvation of others, it is symbolic.

Best Answer

According to Christianity, the cross represents the punishment that Christ suffered on behalf of humanity. Christ suffered and died in our place to bridge the gap between man and God that 'sin' creates. The cross has become symbolic of that propitiation.

Best Answer

Religion uses the power of guilt. They want you to feel guilty for a horrible sacrifice that supposedly happened (nothing proves any of it is true!) millennia before you were born.<br />
<br />
It is so convenient to convince people they're doomed from the moment they're born (original sin). Nothing will get you to do what a bunch of power-hungry virgins want as the threat of eternal torture.

what Jesus lived and died for, was sacred, because by dying, he assumed all sin, past, present and future, thereby helping to ensure that we get to experience eternal life with God.

Best Answer

Jehova's Witnesses contend Jesus was tortured to death on a vertical stake, not a cross. The image of Jesus on the cross, commonly referred to as the crucifix, is common in Catholic churches, but seldom found in protestant churches, which prefer the empty cross. Some Christian churches do away with the cross altogether, and focus on teaching from the Bible without visual symbolism. Me? I like the gospel. Especially the miracles of bounty, at the moment. Think I'll have a fish taco and a strong lager. I'd have wine, but I'm low on water. I guess I should get that pump started soon...

Best Answer

It was the instrument of humanity's salvation. His death saved us, supposedly.

Best Answer

The instrument is the means. At most, the instrument would be the spear he was pierced with. This is all moot, really, as he may have been a fictional creation of the Romans.

Best Answer

Well, there are a couple recent studies which would suggest he was fictional. But of course, he may very well have been real. Impossible to know now.
