This beautifully gold filled cufflinks set has two fish that are symbolic to religion. Comes with matching tie clip and would make a perfect complete set for boys first communion or confirmation ceremony. Included is the original case, great for gift giving. The fish became a symbol for Christianity in the early days of the post-apostolic church. It frequently is found carved on the walls of the catacombs beneath the ancient city of Rome. The Greek word for “fish” is ichthus, and each letter represented a word, namely: i (Iesous—Jesus), ch (Christos—Christ), th (theou—of God), u (huios—son), s (soter—savior). The fish thus became sort of a code word during times of persecution by which believers expressed the conviction: “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and my Savior.” In the “Darwin” symbol, you will notice that tiny feet have been added to the fish image. This is designed to suggest that fish evolved into walking creatures. It is not difficult to detect the philosophy of those who display this emblem. This new symbol is quite revealing. First, it suggests that the displayer dishonors the Creator and the Bible, and that he has contempt for Jesus Christ. Second, it reveals that the owner is ignorant of the genuine facts of science. Third, the symbol demonstrates that the growing influence of creationists has greatly irritated evolutionists. Creation science has made tremendous headway in recent years. Let us continue to press the battle. Perhaps it is unnecessary to mention that the Christian’s teaching and example are really all he needs to demonstrate his faith. When we really “live” our convictions, that will be observed by our contemporaries. This is the Time to be thinking of the upcoming holidays and what better way then that something for the men that have everything! This would be a great idea because it is Vintage and not something you can buy everyday. OR perhaps just a perfect addition to a collection.
