The Crucifix means more to me. I can't exactly explain why other than I've grown up with that feeling

Neither. Ima jew

Crucifixes mean nothing to me 'cause I'm not religious. But I like crosses and I own several. To me they're pleasant arrangements of lines

neither mean much to me.

Neither of them mean anything to me. I love the way your god built this planet. He seemed like such a good person until he got greedy.

Crucifixes are depressing. Plus it’s annoying the way Catholics worship them as if they literally were Jesus Christ himself.

the cross has more meaning for me.

mmmmmm the crucifix means nothing to me. crosses definatly have more meaning
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/5/02 - 5:36:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
both look the same to me. Except one has a little man on it.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/13/02 - 8:38:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
neither - they are both become symbols of christianity, but that doesn't mean much to me

Emitchell: Care to elaborate? I've never seen anything like that before.

All of you are totally lost first of all crosses mean more to me because on a crucifix they still show jesus dead and he has risen.second of all Formula 420 you are way off track he has never been greedy if you could spend 1 split second in hell you would most surely choose christ and stop criticizing him. There is no line between heaven or hell so you need to make your choice I will surely pray for you.And belief in God is not religion its faith. And to the jew if you are alive and have not accepted christ before the rapture maybe you will be one of the 144,000 jews to be converted and then you willl know that Jesus Christ was real because if he was not then when you died no matter what you would surely burn in hell and so would evaryone else if his blood would have not cleansed us.

I have several crosses, and they don't hold any meaning for me other than sentimental because they were given to me by my husbands family members who are Catholics.

neither

they're both forms of execution the crucifix just has the guy still on it.

I like the celtic cross, being a Presbyterian...crucifixes can have meaning in reminding us of the suffering that Christ endured for us...but the empty cross is more significant as it is a sign of victory, not just death. And using crosses simply for decorative purposes is profane.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 9/17/02 - 1:05:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
They represent the same faith to me. I wear 2 crosses on my necklace. I always wear that necklace, it's my good-luck charm.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 9/17/02 - 1:07:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Crucifixes I guess, although I'm not religious enough to care that much.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 9/17/02 - 1:07:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
the cross means more to me.. i am just not very used to it being called a crucifix... that is the only reason it means slightly less to me

They were just the instrument of Christs death. If the romans would have cut Jesus's head off or starved him to death, would people be wearing a small axe or an empty plate around their neck?

The crucifix because it constantly reminds you of the ultimate sacrifice and suffering Jesus underwent for us, and it helps me to do better in reflecting that in my life.

I don't really have a preference. Both are an amazing reminder to me.

The cross means more to me because it shows me that Jesus is ALIVE and when he rose again He opened the doors of heaven to all who believe on Him.
