Once when I was in a church in Mississippi a teen-aged girl came in wearing a necklace with a charm on it. I asked her if she knew what the charm was and she replied that it was a cross. When I explained to her that it was an ancient Egyptian

ankh, she seemed bewildered. She thought she was wearing a cute little Christian cross. No long ago I also saw a lady here in Florida wearing one in church and I am sure she had no idea what it was. Maybe there are others who are a little confused about this "cross."

A quick search on the internet for "ankh" led me to a website where I copied the following:

"The Ankh symbolized eternal life and bestowed immortality on anyone who possessed it. It is believed that life energy emanating from the Ankh can be absorbed by anyone within a certain proximity. An Ankh serves as an antenna or conduit for the divine power of life that permeates the universe. The amulet is a powerful talisman that provides the wearer with protection from the evil forces of decay and degeneration."

The ancient Egyptian gods and the kings are often shown carrying the ankh to distinguish them from mere mortals. The gods held the Ankh by the loop.

Modern Egyptian guides claim that the loop of the ankh represents the female sex organ and the elongated section represents the male sex organ. The cross bar represents the children produced by the two sacred units coming together to form life. There is some doubt as to the antiquity of this view.

At any rate, the ankh is an amulet of a false religion and the worship of false gods. Christians would do well to understand what it is and then stay away from it.
