Holy Cross 18 by HolyCross9 Holy Cross 18 by HolyCross9
This holy cross is used in the Russian Orthodox Church, however I go a Babtist chruch. The reason for posting a cross from a Christian denomination that differs from mine is for this purpose: unity in the Body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 discusses about the Body (the Chruch) which include: how each essential component are equally interdependent of each other, how they function in unity, how God has perfectly arranged the Body, and the function of each component. But my point is each individual Christian, regardless of denomination (Babtist, Earstern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Calvenist, etc.), are united in the Holy Spirit.

EDIT: I've decided to redo this Holy Cross after observing a real wooden Christian Orthodox church cross at a Russian store located in one of the stops on my cruise. From what my mother explained to me, the three horizontal bars on the Christian Orthodox church represent the significant focal points of Jesus body when he was crucified on the Cross to die selflessly and lovingly for our great inquity. Here's how:

:bulletblack:The upper most bar represents where our Savior's head was positioned.
:bulletblack:The largest horizontal bar is where His arms were layed out and His hands were nailed.
:blackbullet:Finally, the beveled bar, the lowest, is where His feet were nailed together.

It was same Russian store where I bought one of those Russian Orthodox chruch cross as a wonderful souvenir. I'll upload a photograph of the representation of the Savior's love for humanity later tonight or tomorrow.
