2009 AD

05/01/2009


2009. That’s the year that school children write when they go to class this week. Actually, it can be written as 2009 AD. What is this AD?

Here’s what WikiAnswers has to say about AD and BC

It is commonly thought that BC stands for “before Christ” and AD stands for “after death.” This is only half correct. How could 1 B.C. have been “before Christ” and 1 A.D. been “after death”? BC does stand for “before Christ.” AD actually stands for the Latin phrase “anno domini” which means “in the year of our Lord.” The B.C. / A.D. dating system is not taught in the Bible. It actually was not fully implemented and accepted until several centuries after Jesus’ death.

It is interesting to note that the purpose of the BC / AD dating system was to make the birth of Jesus Christ the dividing point of world history. However, when the B.C. / A.D. system was being calculated, they actually made a mistake in pinpointing the year of Jesus’ birth. Scholars later discovered that Jesus was actually born in around 4 BC, not 0 AD. That is not the crucial issue. The birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Christ are the “turning points” in world history. It is fitting, therefore, that Jesus Christ be the separation of “old” and “new.” BC was “before Christ” and since His birth, we have been living “in the year of our Lord.”

So it is now 2009 in the year of our Lord.

May the rest of the year be truly the year of the Lord.

Is It An Ending?

Or is it a Beginning?

We will always face all sorts of difficult situations in life. Some can be major crises. Others are little hiccups. But what we do with them as important as the situation itself. Most important is how we face them…..

You can’t change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future.

If you fill your heart with regrts of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.

“I’ll Teach You to Steal, Drink, Lie Swear,” says Pastor

10/10/2008

I shall never forget my pastor taking me aside just after I had been converted and saying, “I am going to teach you to steal, to drink, to lie, and to swear.”
Sensing my astonishment, he quickly went on to add, “I want to teach you how to steal time out of every day to read something the book of Proverbs. And then I want to teach you how to drink from its clear, refreshing water, to lie on your bed at night and meditate on its great themes and to swear that by the grace of God you will put into practice its wonderful teaching.”

The above was attributed to Selwyn Hughes.
By the way, folks, I have added a chatbox on my left bar. Feel free to post there too. Blessings!
