Lead like Jesus.
Simple question is what year is it?
Jesus would say it is 2020.

…umm, what is your point, l’il Ralphy?….ummm, I mean we also have Christmas as a national holiday…..are you saying that means that Jesus and Christianity are somehow more important than all of the other faiths and their numerous versions of gods and all of the non-faith traditions?…please understand that we have 41 MRFF clients on this matter at NAVSTA Newport…and 32 of the ARE CHRISTIANS, skippy!!….oh, by the way, Jesus might well, instead, say it is the year 5780, & not 2020, as THAT (5780) IS the year on the current Jewish calendar……ahem, Jesus was said to be a bit Jewish, eh, little sport??!!   🙂

Actually, Ralph, Jesus would probably say it’s 2024, since whoever came up with the calendar screwed up and was off by at least 4 years.

And even Jewish Jesus separated religion and government (see Matthew 22:21 & Mark 12:17).

Hi (name withheld),
It might surprise you to hear this, but a lot of people know what year it is without being
told it by Jesus.
You see, some have their own way of knowing things. Our point is that it’s not the government’s
place to suggest there is only one right way.

Currently we use this calender and it is used by you as this response is dated on my end at 2020. If it is not on your end I would be surprised. Original question would you replace any other leader that would compare as a role model to use in place of Jesus? Thus the comment of the year we use.

My grandson 4 just jumped on me and said, I love you gramps. My granddaughter 8 just said , I love poppin the bubbles on the piece of bubble wrap she was popping. What do you want to do next? My other granddaughter 3 said to me just now pop-ah. You can’t catch me as she ran across the room.
But the best one is , I asked my 3 year granddaughter
old who made the Diosors, she said Jesus did as I pointed at the tv, how do you know that? I said , without blinking she said he told me. She was born early and spent weeks in a incubator before she was allowed to go home. I got this is her favorite thing to say.
Yes you are right sometimes you don’t need anyone to tell you what year it is.
I crossed the line of death after a Chaplin prayed for our safety.

Hi Again,
My choice of teacher would depend on the subject. In any year.
It’s nice that your grandkids love you. I’m glad for you. Three year olds do say cute things, mostly what they’ve heard from the adults around them.
Was the Chaplin who prayed for your safety Charlie or Oona? In either case, it’s nice that you managed to “cross the line of death” and make you way back.

  1. Hi

    Actually, it is 5780 since God goes by the Hebrew calendar and not the Gregorian one.

  2. G

    And your point HI?

  3. G

    Are you sure that God goes by the Hebrew calendar, HI?

  4. Grey One talks sass

    Hi, please explain your logic because you do not compute.

    A deity which you claim is all knowing and all seeing limits themselves by using a human representation of the passage of time?


    Doesn’t say much for your deity.
