jesus died on the cross ... crucifixion

crucifixion was ancient Roman/jewish way of executing Criminal like hangman's gallow was old british way of executing criminals.

today, crucifix has become a the symbol of Christianity simply because jesus died on the cross or should i say because the jews nailed his butt t the cross embarassed.
some Christians even have more respect for the symbol more than they do for the religion.
some pastors use the crucifix for their spiritual mumbo jumbo. the catholic bishops use crucifix during exorcism. the pope's golden crucifix could take one community out of poverty.


now, the question is, if the romans executed jesus with let's say AK47 with jesus facing firing squad or with RPG
or may be with an electric chair, what would have been the symbol of Christianity?

AK47 on a stick? grin


would you rock ak47 pendant?

Nah... We shouldn't think such towards him. He's only stupid and high to derive a joke from the Works and Perfection of Christ.
OP, to you, it's funny and worth laughing at, but it's not to Christians and I believe respect for other people's religion is what makes us tolerant and 'sane'.

Good question, actually....

What of the electric chair? Even a hanged man? You'd be wearing a chain of a hanged man? What if he'd been stoned to death, sharia/old law style? The cross is wrong on so many levels but people don't notice because it's ubiquitous.

I'd personally love for a giant robot to have killed jesus. Or godzilla

LoL. Pipo can exibit their ignorance in somany ways. So if christ died by firing squat or electric chair, the purpose for his dead would not have been archieved? Let me educate u. It was at dead that redemptiom was effectual. It never really mattered how he died, but that he died. His blood was used as an attonement for sins. His spirit, pulled the spirit of man from the state of deadness to life. Except u r more concerned with christian paraphenelias and forgetting that that is not christianity. The cross is a symbol of shame and humiliation, we identify with it because He suffered shame and humiliation there for us. We shd be the ones there not Him, but he took our place. So pls stop making a fool of urself and study ur Bible.

crucifixion simply means "nail someone @ crossroads and @ crisis point". So whatever method and means you adopt, crucifixion is finish, snuff life and liquidate and terminate life at crisis point, crossroads.
Jesus was God. He chose His Death Style. Remember He ordered Judas to start The Process. Jesus is Unique, Special and established His legacies Himself. So He is different in Spirit to Elijah, Moses and Mohammed. Christ was God on Earth. His Crucifixion and Resurrection qualify us Heirs to The Throne of Grace. Happy Easter!!!

if jesus had died in 21st century, they probably would have used lethal injection. Your story is invalid unless you know other methods of killing blasphemer like jesus during "his time"
