"This is what the Lord says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, and ask where the good way is, and walk in it. You will find rest for your soul."
Jeremiah 6:16 NIV

"Merry Xmas?"

merry_christmas_400Does it bother you when you see the word "Christmas" written out as "Xmas"?  It does me, but there's one interesting fact you may not know.             

I don't like people taking Christ out of Christmas and replacing it with an "X."  But did you know how the whole "X" thing ever got started?  In 1100 A.D.  That’s right.   

You see, in the old Greek alphabet, the letter "X" is pronounced "Ch", and since 1100 A.D. the Greek symbol "X" has stood for Christ.  You can even look at a modern dictionary today- the letter "X" will be referred to Christ.   

But even so, let’s try not to us the "X" as a substitute.   

Why?   

Because without Christ in Christmas, well, there would be no Christmas.
