It's Not X'mas

I did an article on why Christmas shouldn't be X'mas, in my other blog. A fave blogger, domjullian commented and here's his comment.

It Isn't Xmas, but Christmas
by Cathy (AllFunPages)

It isn't Xmas, but Christmas
For that's the day Christ came.
When you take Christ out of Christmas
You cross out life's best name.

I wonder why they cross out Christ,
The best that God could give.
I wonder why they've forgotten.
That we for Him should live.

Why take Christ's name out of Christmas?
For He came to set us free.
If we had Christmas without Christ
How hopeless we would be.

Why, is it ~ that they cross out Christ,
The greatest gift of all?
Why, is it ~ that nobody cares
Or listens to His call?

To me ~ X stand for nothing,
Then why, cross His name out?
To me ~ Christ means everything
He took away my doubt.

I'll never try to shame my Lord,
I'll keep His name in place;
Then when life here below is over,
I'll see Him face to face.

Love and serve Him this year.
It isn't Xmas but it's Christmas,
Ring it out, loud and clear.

Amen! Thanks for the post.

They make it Xmas so that non-Christians won't be offended and they can celebrate the holiday as a consumer, not as a member of the faithful.

Rita: Amen indeed!

Frances: is that so? but Christmas is all about Christ. there are a lot of non-Christian celebrations holidays too Christians aren't offended by them.
