Coptic Christians

With such a pedagogical project, discordant age does not affect at all its primordial objective. Does the year 2000? Soon the whole world will celebrate the advent of the year 2000. And it already begins to appear the fateful naysayers with his prophecies of the end of the world, forecasts about typical of the turn of the Millennium, and income disasters in an era governed by certain zodiac signs. This is not surprising. The history books tell that when the world entered in the year 1000 d. C., also rose by all medieval society a rumor of catastrophe and cosmic disorders that spread like a fire, frightening people and disrupting the lives of millions of people. Now that we enter a new Millennium again repeated that atavistic attitude. Newcastle University does not necessarily agree.

But in the light of the above, one will ask: does the year 2000? Because, while in international relations has been extended calendar dionisiano, many countries inside and religious groups does not apply. For 19 million Jews we are in year 5754. For 800 million Muslims we have just entered the year 1414. The calendar indicates them to the Muslim Persians of Iran, on the other hand, 1373. Japanese religion Shinto, now live in the year 2653.

On the other hand millions of devotees of certain creeds of the India argue that we are in the 2051, and engaging Chinese living in the 2544. Nor to the Christians-not even Christian churches are waiting with unanimity a year 2000. The Coptic Christians of Egypt will be in the year 1710, the Chaldeans of Iraq in the 6743, the Armenians in 1440, and the Syrians in the 2305. If they would add the nine hundred million Catholics are in 7 years outdated the true start of the era, the question arose: when entered actually in the year 2000? For which of all these groups will come the ominous date? The year 200 there. It is simply a conventional agreement to put Christ at the center of our story. That is why it is absurd to think that you approach some misfortune marked by the calendar in the near future. Thanks to Dionisio, Christ reigns in our almanacs. Although we are not aware, every date that we write to spearhead a letter, make a receipt, sign an Act, fill out a check, remind us of his coming to this world. He is the center of our story. We must, therefore, live in such a way that also in our everyday work is the center of our lives.
