Ichthys or Ikhthus (Greek: ἰχθύς, capitalized ΙΧΘΥΣ or ΙΧΘΥC) is the ancient and classical Greek word for "fish." In English it refers to a symbol consisting of two intersecting arcs, the ends of the right side extending beyond the meeting point so as to resemble the profile of a fish, said to have been used by early Christians as a secret symbol and now known colloquially as the "sign of the fish" or the "Jesus fish."
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Why the Ichthus is on our Website
We are proud to be Christians, followers of the Lord Jesus, the Christ, the King of kings, the Son of the living God, Who took the sins of the world on His shoulders when He was crucified on the cross, and paid our ransom in full when He conquered death by His resurrection. We commit our work to God for His glory and praise. We are thankful to have had so many years of such a fun product to make and sell and such wonderful customers who've been very loyal and kind.

It breaks our hearts that so many Americans deny or have forgotten this nation's Judeo-Christian heritage. A recent survey says most people under age 35 in the UK have never even heard of the King James Bible (and it's their king who had it translated). For decades, some of our leaders have been trying to change the US to be just like the largely atheist and socialist countries in Europe and the UK, no longer the America Robin and I remember 60+ years ago where most everyone believed in God and attended church or temple every week. America was a godly nation with the majority of its people teaching their children to behave in accordance with The Ten Commandments found in the Jewish Torah (the Christian Bible's Old Testament). Nowadays atheists are so emboldened by our decadent culture that they put up billboards blaspheming God and mocking the beliefs of Christianity as a myth. For decades Hollywood films have depicted Christians as nerds and weaklings, using religion as a crutch, unable to think and reason like the sophisticated and superior intellectuals who reject all things God.
We were criticized for the first paragraph above appearing on our website when we launched cookiestamp.com (comment posted 11/22/09) – it isn't politically correct to express faith in God these days, but it is PC to insult the person of Jesus Christ and those of us who believe He is the Son of God, known as Christians, especially in elite liberal circles, the mainstream media, Hollywood, and academia. Christians are being persecuted more and more openly here in America! AMERICA! Powerful forces have emerged who endeavor to remove Christ from Christmas, which is incredible considering the very word "Christmas" denotes a mass (a church service) honoring and celebrating the birth of Christ. There would be no Christmas at all if Christ had never been born.
As a consequence, we are emboldened to add this link for those of you who have never even heard of Jesus of Nazareth, let alone the King James Bible, or those who don't know the story of Christ, while we still have the freedom to express our beliefs and opinions out loud. Click here to see The Jesus Film in your own language, wherever you are in the world! (Then click on the arrow next to the word ENGLISH to see the world map, then click on your continent for a list of the languages to choose from.) We strike one blow for our God and Creator of this universe and the planet on which we live. Praise be His name!
May God bless you all, and God bless America.
Robin and Carol

A 12' x 40' painting will be exhibited in a museum in Dallas, Texas, depicting the resurrection of Christ. Watch this video (at CBN.com) to hear the artist describe his journey in painting what can only be described as a masterpiece of craftsmanship and divine inspiration.
A group of high school students put together this fabulous video: SILENT MONKS SINGING THE HALLELUIA CHORUS. We hope you find their performance as entertaining and the words as uplifting as we did.
If you celebrate Christmas and the Reason for the Season, then WATCH THIS VIDEO for some more great music and the explanation of the MYSTERY!
