Christmas or Xmas?

Christmas or Xmas?

Many Christians have been objecting to the usage of Xmas for Christmas because for them, X negates Christ and this for them is antichrist projected by bla bla blue; blue blue bla. However, this is just a conspiracy theory which is based on ignorance of the undiscerning hearts (Proverbs 18:15). To comprehend the meaning of X, one ought to have a grasp of Greek language and the history of Christianity.

In the Greek alphabet, X is the symbol for the letter ‘chi’ by pronunciation or ‘ch’ by transliteration. Christ in Greek is Χριστός=Christos. So, Chi or ch is the (or X) is the first letter in the Greek word for Christ.

In the early days of the Christian church, Christians used the letter X as a SECRET SYMBOL to indicate their membership in the church to others. Instead of writing Xριστοσ (Christ) in full, they write X. This X was only then understood by christians in order to deviate and fool their persecutors. The X meant that they belonged to Christ and are therefore Christians.

Now, you know the Greek meaning of X, and the historical christian meaning of X. Can you now stop crying foul and re-send this to all those you sent the false narratives to, because Xmas and Christmas essentially mean the same thing: Christ(X) + mas = Christmas.

I’d like to encourage people to keep the MASS in Christmas (Christ-Mass) Day!
