Колие с кръст

Колие с кръст от дърво

Колието с кръст е всяко колие с християнски кръст или разпятие.[1]

Кръстовете често се носят като индикация за привързаност към християнската вяра,[2][3][4] и понякога се получават като подаръци за ритуали като кръщение и потвърждение (католическо потвърждение на кръщенето).[5][6] Очаква се представителите на Нехалкедонските църкви и Православната църква да носят колието си кръст през цялото време.[7][8] Някои християни вярват, че носенето на кръст предлага защита от злото,[7][9][10] докато други, християнски и нехристиянски, носят колиета с кръст като моден аксесоар.[11]

„В първите векове на християнската ера кръстът е бил таен символ, използван от преследваните привърженици на новата религия.“[12] Много християнски епископи от различни деноминации, като например Православната църква, носят колие с кръст като знак от тяхното свещенство.

Most Christians who have worn crosses have probably not trivialized a core teaching of Jesus about renouncing self-centeredness, figuratively described as carrying one's cross. For them the symbol is perceived not as powerful magic, or as a lovely decoration to impress others, but as a reminder primarily to themselves of their commitment to one who laid down His life in love for friends and enemies.
