This is a most interesting "X" picture. You will notice that the X (or Chi) is the manger for the baby Jesus. The rose over the manger is Mary. The halo over the baby's head is a peacock tail, symbolizing the resurrection. "Emmanuel" means "God with us". The circles symbolize eternity.
X = Righteousness!
Take a look at Ezekiel 9! In the vision described in that passage
an angel is told to go through Jerusalem and put a mark (in those days that
would have been an "X") on the foreheads of all those who are sorry about
the sins of Jerusalem. The angel does this and then returns. After
that a band of angels is told to go throughout the city and slay all those
who do not bear the mark. Hence, the "X" is a mark of repentance,
hardly a mark of sin, as our society insists!
There was a guy who emailed me a while back
saying that if I didn't have a picture of anyone in the buff
I would go to blazes for having a fake x-rated web site. So, here it is!
The picture, above, is from the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican,
painted, of course, by Michelangelo. It is titled, "The Fall of Adam and Eve."
Christ came to save us from that fall! Now it is only up to us to believe!
That's Right! HELL!!
Its better to
one little candle
than to curse the darkness!
