  X X is the Greek letter chi, which is the first letter of the word Christ.  Thus Xmas is shorthand for Christmas, taking only about one-sixth as long to write.

OBEDIENCE At last Wednesday’s Bible study, Pastor Bill cited Philippians 1:16 where the Apostle Paul said, “I am put here for the defense of the gospel.” The pastor then looked up and said, “We are called to be obedient, not to accomplish results.

WHAT IS NEEDED IN THE WORLD TODAY The level of Christianity visible in Europe and America today…has left us tottering on the edge of world destruction. The world can no longer be left to mere diplomats, politicians, and business leaders. They have done the best they could, no doubt. But this is an age for […]
