The Tim Harrell Global Ministries (Inc), a American christian ministry, uses a seal ( "apostle's seal") of two swords crossing behind a shield.

St Paul is represented by a sword, and at times is drawn with two crossing swords over a shield. It is often drawn with a pen or a book to represent his role as the great missionary of the church. Symbols for other saints sometimes contain a sword or a dagger.

Most churches minimize using the symbol of a sword but the symbol of a shield is used frequently. The Catholics use stylized crossing "keys" or staffs instead of swords.

Artists adorning local churches are under the guidance of the priest or minister but are often permitted leeway in creating the symbology and artwork in a church.

This all depends on what you want your warrior to be, tank or dps. Tanks will always want to use a 1-handed weapon and a shield. Tanks use mostly talents from the protection talent tree. Arms DPS is somewhat for soloing. Use either sword and board (1h and shield) or two one handers, or one 2-handed weapon. It is purely a matter of choice for arms. Fury warrior will want two 2-handed weapons as there is a talent in the fury tree to use these.

What are the major differences between wielding a 2hander or sword and shield in runescape?

major differences are that 2handers or 2h r slower and shield and sword are faster also the 2h are more powerfull for instance i can hit a 10 with scimmy and shield but a 13 or 14 max with 2h(rune) personally i prefer the shield and sword because its about every two hits with the sword you only get 1 hit with the two hander ok heres my explination so if i hit max both times i could have the possibility of hitting 20damage total in the time that a 2h could hit once witch is max of lets say 14 so in the time i could do a possibility of 20 with scimmy i only have time to do a max of 14 with 2h get it? hope that made sense :)
