I love giving the boy’s First Communion necklace. It is a masculine reminder of not only your sacrament but also your faith. It is a visual signal to the world of your beliefs. This made me think of Ephesians 6:13, “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes you may be able to stand your ground.”
To answer this, we must return to the two original legends that inspired this iconography. In the former, the young boy was captured by the Bulgarians. He was so handsome that their ruler made him a steward and kept the boy in his residence. On the same evening Saint George rescued him, the ruler had asked him to bring water for hand-washing during the supper in the palace. In the second instance, the boy was taken into captivity by the Saracens and was made the personal cupbearer of the Emir of Crete; he was in the act of offering a glass of wine to the Emir when Saint George appeared and rescued him. The first representations of this iconography, in which the boy holds either a cup or a ewer, appeared in the twelfth century and then spread in the Eastern Mediterranean, where they promoted the role of Saint George as defender of Christians in areas threatened by foreign invasion. Not surprisingly, the type became even more widespread in Orthodox icons after the fall of Constantinople in 1453 to the Ottoman Empire.

Access My Account (109) Christianity Today’s Alissa Wilkinson has described the Christian copy-cat culture well. We had “a whole market segment characterized by an ethos that said ‘Copy those guys over there but change a few things, and it doesn’t really matter if it’s very well made or innovative,’” she writes. Sadly, that knockoff approach was frequently accompanied by the sentiment that “if you don’t support this Christian product and its maker, then you’re harming Christians overall.”

My Ways Are Higher WARNER ROBINS AREA Today, only the layout of the church at Beit Loya and parts of its mosaic floor remain, uncovered through excavation work in the 1980s. Through defacement and hundreds of years’ worth of exposure to the elements, the early Christian art symbols have, in spite of it all, survived.
Many are doing so , in sorrow , since those who have succumb to the weight of the consensus of the world have believed they have a ‘right’ to be ‘happy’ no matter what . Living life at the expense of one’s soul and other people’s lives is to live in iniquity. Lawlessness.

Therefore tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers.” 1 Corinthians 14:21-22. In this way, it could benefit those who attend a gathering but have not yet committed their life to Christ.
