• Wow, I didn't know Christ was knighted. It does make sense, though, now that I think about it. I don't think Jesus would be bothered one bit. I think there would be a million other things that would be the last thing he'd want to see upon returning to Earth. Many of the things that we're now becomming somewhat accustomed to, such as street and gang violence, terrorism, racism, child abuse etc. -Edit- I added some things, after reading Stableboy's comment. Thanks, Stableboy!
  • Jesus Christ existed, there's no doubt about that. However, whether he was in sane state of mind is questionable, and even more questionable is whether or not he was the 'Son' of an incorporeal spirit. However, I do believe he would be rather sickened. He'd probably consider it a form of idolatry.
  • You know... I doubt he would really care. It's just their symbol of worship, and if it was a real problem to him, I am sure he'd of made it known to them before now. I guess it just shows they remember. Which I reckon he'd think is a good thing. I think the last thing would be the 'I hate Jesus, rock on Judas' pendant, or failing that a dead goat's head sacraficed to lucifer as someone's hat. :D Oh, and 'sir' Jesus? I didn't know he was knighted! Wow, I wonder if he got invited to Elton John's wedding... hehe
  • I think he would be flattered. It is a symbol of the way He died for our sins. It is supposed to serve to remind us to act more Christ-like in our everyday lives.
  • If Sir(?!) Jesus Christ actually existed and came back to earth, do you really think he'd waste much time looking at what's hanging 'round the necks of vicars and popes? But Jesus did say "Do not worship me, worship God." So it might be a bit of a thorn in his side that people are still worshiping God only through him like that. But I would imagine that in his eyes, it would at least be better than people not having any theological connections at all. So he might find it slightly macabre and a teensie bit blasphemous. But in today's world, a mesiah would have much bigger fish to fry.
  • It is a symbolic show of faith. The main staple of christianity is that God sent his son Jesus to earth and he died for our sins on the cross. If this event hadn't occured, christians would still be adhering to the old testament laws and practices (e.g. sacrificing animals for atonement). By wearing a cross around one's neck, it is a show of gratitude that Jesus died for us and a public display of their faith.
  • It's an interesting question. Of all the things he did while living, we immortalize the man in his moment of death. Which is interesitng, as Christians consider his conquest of death -- that of rising again -- to be one of the foundations of the faith. Hmm.
  • I always thought it was odd that the cross has been used when its was a form of torture. If you had to remember someone, why not remember him for something less violant and gruesome? It disturbed me to see the huge crosses in church when I was growing up. Then we also have the Pope wearing a head covering known in the Jewish faith as a "Kippah" or "Yarmulke".
  • sir? is Jesus now British?
  • Er.... "Sir"...???
  • worship GOD only.recognize and respect Jesus for who he was and his purpose OF GOD.... HE said HIMSELF, "HE could do nothing without the FATHER..........
  • When Jesus returns to this earth in power and glory, millions of people, Catholics and non-Catholics alike, will try to hide the many non-Scriptural things that they are doing. Especially the individuals who claim to be Christ on earth.
  • I think He would expect to see those. The NT tells us that "we are to preach Christ, and Him crucified". 1 Corinthians 1:23-24 - But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; (Read More...) 1 Corinthians 1:18 - For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. BIBLE VERSES ABOUT CHRIST CRUCIFIED
  • While a lack of accuracy in action or gesture often indicates a lack of thoughtfulness, Jesus considered the love and heart with which the gestures were done to be more important than the outward actions themselves. He clearly challenged those whose hearts were far from him and who were out to wickedly entangle him in his speech, however, he also acknowledged those who genuinely desired forgiveness and whose hearts were full of love. “And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her. And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.” Mark 14:3-7
  • This is a great question! Consider the following. “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them.” (Exodus 20:4, 5, The Holy Bible​—New International Version) The apostle John wrote to first-century Christians: “Little children, guard yourselves from idols.”​—1 John 5:21. Are images, as the churches claim, simply a means of approaching and honoring what they represent? “At first,” states The Encyclopedia of Religion, “images may have served primarily didactic [teaching] and decorative purposes; at least, they were defended on such grounds. But soon they came to fill admittedly devotional functions. This was especially true of the icons that became a prominent feature of Eastern Orthodoxy.” However, the prophet Isaiah rightly asked: “To whom can you compare God? What image can you contrive of him?”​—Isaiah 40:18, The New Jerusalem Bible. God does not approve of the use of images and icons Compare these Bible verses: Isaiah 44:13-19; Acts 10:25, 26; 17:29; 2 Corinthians 5:7. For more information on this subject please visit jworg
  • No. I think the last thing he wants to see is man's inhumanity towards man.
