I wear a cross most days. While I've read some of Erwin Lutzer’s books, when I see a cross in church or touch the one around my neck I don't think of idolatry - I think of the sacrifice that He made for us. It's that simple.

I have resisted in purchasing all symbols of the faith, from the cross necklace to the fish on the backs of cars to the angel pens. Actually I think the one angel pen I saw in a store turned me off completely to Christian symbol merchandise. It was a fancy pen with a gaudy angel on the pen clip. In general, I just resist the whole marketing ploy that I see with the symbols (I’m cheap that way too). It doesn’t remind me one way or another of Christ. In fact, you can prob. make a case against displaying fish symbols on cars if you’re an angry or terrible driver.
