I hope you are all aware that "x" as in "Xmas" and Me's "xtians" is a Christian symbol. It represents the Cross that Jesus was crucified on, so replacing "Christ" with "X" makes no difference, since they both represent the same thing.

As for Jesus "dying for our sins" you have to realized when and who the documents that became The Bible were written for. I was just talking to my priest, who is a authority on Religious tezts. Also he is a great guy, who believes in "down home Catholicism" as he puts it, and will shoot down the lies and misconceptions even the most devoted Christians have. He was just telling me this week that everything in the Bible is written in metaphorical language, and cannot be taken at face value, but at practical value. "Died for our sins?" he was telling me "Who cares? What does that mean, died for our sins? It's purely metaphorical language...Jesus died for US. And anyone who willingly gives up their own life the help others muts be respected and honored."
