Have we entered into a new age of resistance?


A very compelling post from the monergism.com blog:

...consider that the "Supreme Court has now, in constitutional doctrine, said that homosexuality is equivalent to race. The next goal of activists will be a long-term campaign to remove tax-exempt status [and deny accreditation] from dissenting religious institutions." (Rod Dreher)

on judging others


This meme is more about judging the ultimate disposition of others, but I think it also speaks to the measure that we *can* use to judge other's actions as well as warning in terms of the focus of ultimate judgement.

When Christ is in the center of our eye, His righteousness removes the "plank" and allows us to see and judge rightly.

Why X in oddXian?


The idea of X as an abbreviation for the name of Christ came into use in our culture with no intent to show any disrespect for Jesus. The church has used the symbol of the fish historically because it is an acronym. 

Fish in Greek (ichthus) involved the use of the first letters for the Greek phrase “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior.” So the early Christians would take the first letter of those words and put those letters together to spell the Greek word for fish. 

That’s how the symbol of the fish became the universal symbol of Christendom. There’s a long and sacred history of the use of X to symbolize the name of Christ, and from its origin, it has meant no disrespect.
