//In the first hundred years of the church, the Apostles never taught Christians to use any symbol. Not any cross or a dead fish.//

They used the fish symbols in the 1st century to communicate with each other of meeting places to keep out of the radar of the Romans.

It's easy for you to insult the only SAFE SYMBOL they came up with by calling it a dead fish.

//But when the apostate church leaders, the so called early church fathers took over---peterG

How do you think KEPT the 4 Gospels and Letters of Paul, James, Peter, Jude, John, and Revelation was kept for you?

The Bible didn't FALL FROM HEAVEN in a nice binder in the 5th Century.

Jewish people have symbols all the time.

Mad with them as well?

In the first hundred years of the church, the Apostles never taught Christians to use any symbol. Not any cross or a dead fish. But when the apostate church leaders, the so called early church fathers took over, doctrine of devils and all sorts of symbols were introduced to the church.

Woden is a Celtic name for the same high god that the Sumarians called, Seten (from which we get Satan). Woden is one of the many different deceptive names that Satan goes by.Celtic Druids used to gather at night holding hands and burn a cross, chanting and casting spells. The burning cross is the most prominent symbol of Woden.......

It is very likely that the celtic cross with a circle around the intersection of the two pieces of the cross is another symbol of Woden. The circle, often called a "sun nimbus," represents the sun, the astral body that has universally represented the highest god of the pagans (Satan) since he first whispered his Great Deception into the ears of man.......

Scripture tells us that Satan "masquerades as an angel of light." Is it any wonder that he'd want to be symbolized by the sun and try to pervert our own Christian Symbol...the Cross of Salvation?

This reminds me of the part of 1 Corinthians where Paul is discussing that it is okay to eat meat that was sacrificed to idols. There were meat eating Christians who were told that eating that meat was evil.

Well, I am Irish, and proud of it. I wear a Celtic cross and do not believe in that evil voodoo stuff.

Where did you get that idea??

A Celtic cross is the art form o f Christian monks, between 5th and 10th century. Mostly, it was in Ireland, but also Lindifarne in Northumbria.
The signifigance of the circles is eternity, in the full form it is is animals, esting theirt tails.

splaa6685 I've heard people before say that the Celtic cross is satanic but no-one has ever been able to tell me why. I'd be grateful if you would give me this information. I can find nothing on the internet of that nature.

As I understand, the Celtic variety of Christianity was the first in the British Isles, or whatever they were then called.

Christ was crucified on a roman cross outside the city gates of Jerusalem and not on a celtic cross.

How do YOU know so much about what Satan uses, Andrea?

Following your reasoning (called that by courtesy), we should not have a sun or moon in the sky because at one time they were the focus of pagan worship.

The whole point of Christ's coming was to take what was aliented from God and use it for His glory. If you don't understand this, you don't understand the Gospel of Christ!

I always heard that the celtic cross has something to do with the Irish faith. I do not know if that is true, but I am just sharing with you what I heard.
---Cynthia on 9/27/07

Celtic cross has it's roots in pre-Christian variation of the Solar cross. Examples of the Celtic cross date back 5000 BCE. Its origins are not known, but it was known to be an early symbol of the sun god Taranis.

After the conversion of the Celtic people to Christianity, the Celtic Cross became an emblem of the Celtic Christian Church.

I do not keep display or wear anything that I know satan uses for himself.
I don't mess with his stuff and I don't want him messing with me.
---Andrea on 9/27/07

The Celtic cross (a cross with a circle around the horizontal beam) symbolizes two different things:

1. The circle itself represents eternity, representing that the Cross is eternal in its effects.

2. The circle represents the circle of magic that is destroyed by the Cross of Christ.

Why should you fear to wear it?
