† The crucifix. It is revered as a symbol of Christ's sacrifice. Some people who believe Christ's death cleansed the sins of humanity own a small crucifix, often with the image of Christ nailed to it. Yet the way some religious people view the crucifix might actually be against the will of God, depending on what they believe. For example, it says in Exodus 20:4, "You shall not carve idols for yourselves in the shape of anything in the sky above or on the earth below or in the waters beneath the earth; you shall not bow down before them or worship them. For I, the LORD, your God, am a jealous God, inflicting punishment for their fathers' wickedness on the children of those who hate me, down to the third and fourth generation; but bestowing mercy down to the thousandth generation, on the children of those who love me and keep my commandments." Please, do not discuss the validity of the Bible. I myself don't believe it, but I try to keep an open mind, even if my heart has been turned to stone, my eyes blinded and my ears deaf to the truth I'm supposed to follow.
