The Christian cross is a representation of the religion. What gives it power is you; your belief. But I guess it could be a protection amulet if you choose to use it this way, just as the pentacle is used. But no, the cross itself has no power. BB
The Cross is a symbol of Suffering, the Pentacle is a symbol for Protection and was used as the Christians first symbol, before the Cross.
Both hold power via your belief and millions of others belief.
Both would hurt if they were thrown at you.
Meh, either or. The cross can most certainly be charged with protection, as can most things.
The cross can be the suffering of Jesus, or the crossroads which is the meeting of the physical and spiritual words. Two roads crossing, or the representation of a crossroads in a working can be used.
These places are of importance. Specific rituals are done at the cross roads for throwing away old works, asking for help in a work or task, etc. Some people use the dirt from it. So yes, it is another symbol of power.
Simple works can be done with just getting a wooden cross, some oil, and simple praying over it. Most people would rather use the pentacle for some sort of protection charm for some reason.
