Oh Frijoles, here is your assignment. DO IT.

Step 1--- A school has long established policies with respect to disciplinary matters.

Step 2---A new Board assumes governance.

Step 3--- The existing principal makes the following declaration at a staff meeting, several months after the new Board has been in place.

DECLARATION:
In matters of discipline I have borne in mind that its procedures/policies are put in place by the board independent of the executive management of the school . I have therefore undertaken on no occasion to prescribe the procedures suited to it, but have left them, as the new board found them

TASK: Please explain ALL of the above as clearly as you are capable of doing.

Cunti--- perfectly acceptable xtian label
HughBe--- Acceptable to who, Cunti? I as a Christian find it OFFENSIVE and I don't know of any Christian who would call himself xtian. What is your challenge with using the word Christian? Is your challenge the ability to spell or is it pure nastiness?

WHAT "XTIAN" IS NOT...
"Xtian" is NOT a shorted version of a believer &/or follower of Jesus Christ. Unlike the term "Xmas" which is offensive to many Christians (taking Christ out of Christmas), "Xtian" has a totally different meaning.

WHAT A "XTIAN" IS...
"Xtian" is term to describe people who are radical followers of Jesus Christ in word, thought and deed (they actually obey the bible and are humble & repentant about their sin & failings before a perfect & holy God; their lives center around repentance & obedience to God). It describes those who have & are still being conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.

DEFINITION:

Here is how the word "Xtian" breaks down...

1). the "X" in Latin is defined as 'To delete, cancel, or obliterate'(i.e. kill, crush & crucify).

2). the "tian" in Latin means 'to hold, grasp, have'.

So an "Xtian" is a believer who dies to self (gives up everything they hold & have), thru the power of Jesus Christ and radically conforms to His image; a servant/bondservant of Christ. Not by their own power but by submitting everything in their lives to Christ (even if they have to die), for His glory.

For more explanation about dying to self & conforming tho His image, watch the youtube video entitled "Get Your Cup SO Full of JESUS that Nothing Else Can Fit!" by fotm1.

My boy, STOP getting personal and STOP LYING.
I am NOT a Jew but I have JEWISH DNA and Jewish FAMILY and it is AGAINST my nature to LIE or to STIGMATIZE anyone.
Also, instead of focusing on the discussion YOU seek to drag the discussion to your gutter level. It is a FACT that I called you a Judahite BUT I was talking to YOU and NOT ALL the members of Judaism.
Now, it is a PROVABLE and established FACT that YOU have nasty habit of taking comments directed at YOU and meant ONLY for YOU and apply it to the the ENTIRE Jewish RACE as you have now done. Understand, you are NOT of the ilk to speak on behalf of my JEWISH FAMILY by BLOOD and NOT by CONVERSION.
Finally, YOU are a CRIMINAL type, in my opinion.
Totally IRRELEVANT

Judahite is your personal term. No one else uses it. You use it to create distinctions in a pathetic attempt to stigmatize those NOT in your tribe. You use it to de-legitimatize my people and my religion.

XTIANITY

English[edit]

Etymology[edit]
1634,[1] from Christianity, replacing Christ with the abbreviation Xt (from Ancient Greek &#935; (Ch, the letter chi), the first letter of &#935;&#961;&#953; &#963;&#964;&#972; &#962; (Christós,“Christ”)+ t, the last letter of "Christ"). Compare the more common Xmas.

Noun[edit]
Xtianity (uncountable)

Alternative form of Xianity (“abbreviation of Christianity”). &#8195;[quotations &#9660;]
Usage notes[edit]
See also: Xianity#Usage notes
As with Xmas and Xianity, as of the late 20th century this term may be considered informal and potentially disrespectful, though it was traditionally an unobjectionable scribal abbreviation.

References[edit]
^ Oxford English Dictionary, 1884-1928, and First Supplement, 1933

Hughbes objection to the use of XTIAN reminds me of a quote I just read from a a very devout christian claiming that fossils were put on the earth by God to test people's faith (in creationism).

To the XTIAN pervert from Jamaica

I'll offer you a deal.

I will cease using the word XTIAN with you if you cease using the word Judahite.

Note - I cant speak for anyone else here. Nor do I want to.

Judaism is a system of beliefs and behaviors. Jews are a people. You cant be a member of a system of beliefs and behaviors. Its an abstraction. Thats like saying Communists are a member of Communism.

1. Son, I had expected that even YOU would have learnt by now that I do not go to "Sunday School" but I was wrong.

2. No Christian calls himself or herself xtian and they do NOT call their religion Xtianity. So go ahead and justify your DECEIT and DISRESPECT.

3. The labarum (Greek: &#955;&#940;&#946; &#945;&#961;&#959; &#957;) was a vexillum (military standard) that displayed the "Chi-Rho" symbol &#9767;, formed from the first TWO Greek letters of the word "Christ" (Greek: &#935;&#929;&#921; &#931;&#932;&#927; &#931;, or &#935;&#961;&#953; &#963;&#964;&#972; &#962;)— Chi (&#967;) and Rho (&#961;).

Do you see and UNDERSTAND ---" the first TWO Greek letters of the word "Christ" (Greek: &#935;&#929;&#921; &#931;&#932;&#927; &#931;, or &#935;&#961;&#953; &#963;&#964;&#972; &#962;)— Chi (&#967;) and Rho (&#961;"

4. Your man the Cunti spoke about LETTERS and then used A LETTER i.e. x and then you being a FOOL and a dishonest person supported him.

It would be in your interest to UNDERSTAND proper English but I am not very hopeful as you have been exposed to English for over 50 years and yet you have demonstrated your inability to understand it.

Do you want a very recent and SIGNIFICANT example?

I have explained my use of the word Judahite. Tell me who are the people that call Christians xtians and who call Christianity Xtianity?

Support by quoting reputable sources e.g. newspapers, Christians sermons etc.

Do you have a problem with using a name that links a person to their RELIGION? Please do NOT dodge this question and the others.

Not my problem if you find offense to a perfectly acceptable abbreviation. You've already been schooled on its origins and usage, so you might as well get used to it - xtian.

HughBe---I stand by my words that Christian NATIONS should treat members of other RELIGIONS the EXACT way that CHRISTIANS are treated in those nations where that particular region is the dominant one.
Former---You've evaded my question about the Golden Rule:Do onto others as you would have them do unto you.Why do you not follow it?
HughBe--- I believe that your meaning/understanding of the word FOLLOW is strange.
Based on your words above tell me how my stated position is at odds with the Golden Rule.
Do you know the word RECIPROCITY? What is the link between it and the Golden Rule?
How does my position of treating others EXACTLY as they treat Christians a violation of that law?
The Golden Rule, as you well know, was put forth by Jesus in the Sermon of the Mount.

The Golden Rule does state that you should do to others what they have done to you.
(That is more "An eye for an eye.")

It states that you should treat others they way you would WANT to be treated.

It is not about revenge.

I am surprised this needs to be explained.

All due respect.

If a US soldier were publicly whipped by an adversary, it would not mean we would do the same to their soldier.

Can you relate to this?
HughBe wrote:
<quoted text>
Let me help you some more, I am COMFORTABLE with being treated the SAME way that I am RECIPROCATING to others.
This is called revenge, not necessarily justice.

You are speaking of wrath, one of the 7 deadly sins.

Also not advocated by your savior.

Prove that it is COMMONLY used and that it is acceptable to Christians.

I gave my wife a box of chocolate on St. Valentine's Day.

But that was also enlightened self interest as I knew she would share it with me!

I believe in proper use of the language. And I try not to use hate speech either,

You get a fail on both accounts.
