Straight thoughts 15

January 1, 2000

Most of the world celebrated the beginning of year 2000. However, from Asians to Americans, from Jews to Christians, from Chretien to Clinton, few did remember its authentic meaning: two thousand years after Jesus Christ lived on this Earth and changed everything about our destiny!

If that is not the reason, what did they celebrate?
-A new number for the date? … Then they could make the year last only six months, and celebrate twice as many numbers!
-Three zeros in a row in this year's date? … Then they could count years by the thousands: 2000, 3000, 4000, and celebrate a new millennium every year!
-One more revolution of the Earth around the Sun? … Then they could celebrate each revolution of Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as well.

Was it a contest about who can spend more in fireworks?
Was it an excuse to have a day off and enjoy a big party?
What did they celebrate?

How shallow life is for those who live as if Christ did not!
Happy year 2000 A.D.!
