Is it true that the Crown of Thorns is kept in a church in Paris?


I do not know for sure but I doubt it.

Firstly it would be very difficult to say with any certainty that what may be in that church is actually the crown of thorns worn by Christ. It would not have been a thing venerated now kept by the early church. This is the same problem with all relics.

But more importantly, God wants us to worship Him not some piece wood or cloth that Jesus may have touched. Such relics have no significance in God’s eyes and are in fact dangerous because they can be used to lead people away from God. This was why Luther was so against them during the Reformation.
