Better Google: ‘Egyptian fish god” and perhaps STOP using it.
Are crosses Christian symbols?
(1.) 97.9% of the time the people wearing a cross are NOT a Christian.
(2.) The cross was NEVER intended to be a religious symbol.
(3.) If you Dad or your son got the electric chair would you wear an electric chair around your neck to remember them?
(4.) The cross is a symbol that predates Christ. The symbol is associated with Tammuz from the Babylonian Religion. (Babylonian Mystery Religion, p. 51) or Babylon Religion by David W. Daniels.
From Babylon, the cross spread to other nations and was associated with paganism long before Jesus’ crucifixion in A.D. 31
(5.) a. It was a shameful instrument of death (Hebrews 12:2).
b. While the apostles preached “the cross [stauros]” as part of the history of Christ’s ministry for our sakes (1 Corinthians 1:17-18), it was not something they idolized
(6.) What does the Bible teach about wearing any religious symbol?
Under the Old Covenant that God made with ancient Israel, God instructed them to wear reminders of their faith upon their hands (Deuteronomy 6:8; 11:18). In fulfillment of this command, phylacteries, small leather boxes containing scriptural passages, were traditionally worn by Jewish men during their morning weekday prayers. However, many did this to “appear” religious to those around them. (Matthew 23:5)
(7.) During His New Testament ministry, Jesus taught His followers to display their spirituality through their actions and deeds (Matthew 5:16). Under the New Covenant, ushered in by Christ, God’s laws are to be written on our hearts—that is, in our minds (Hebrews 8:10; 10:16).
If you would like to learn more about the history of the cross and how this pagan symbol entered Christianity, read chapters 6 and 7 of Ralph Woodrow’s book, Babylon Mystery Religion. These two chapters are respectively titled “Is the Cross a Christian Symbol?” and “Constantine and the Cross.”

* I have no way of knowing if the persons depicted in the attached photos are saved or not. The point is wearing a cross does not make you saved. The bigger the cross does not make you more saved any more than wearing more than one cross. Christians need to be careful about the symbols the idolize and glorify.
The NKJV has a satanic symbol as it’s logo! That is an essay for another day.
Beware of talisman and symbols. St. Christopher cannot protect you any more than my grandfather can…and they are both dead! Jesus is alive…you want a symbol? Look to Jesus the author and finisher of your faith!
