    Let's try this. Everyone put your mind on the International Space Station and look down at Earth. Imagine all the religions and calendar systems being wiped clean and you are left with a blank page Earth with 192 nations waiting for directions. Now put the New Jerusalem calendar and holiday system and public education system and King James Bible Holy Book on Earth as the lone societal foundation platform for the 192 United Nations to use for societal management.


    You now have a cleansed Earth with all of the nations on the same page.

    This whole thing sounds like communism to me (which is more or less stated in revelations during the reign of the anti-christ when all nations become one to be ruled over by one person(the anti-christ)), you even said that the church has to conform to this way as well, so your saying its your way or no way at all?

    Jesus never conformed to the ways of the world and he even said himself to not conform, jesus broke the mould and went against the flow. So what if every churches calendar is a little off, if some people choose to celebrate the same thing twice in a year then by all rights they can go ahead and do that or if they just choose to celebrate it when its comes around on the calendar well then theres no problem there either if it puts their minds on God then thats what counts, Jesus said do this in remembrance of me, its the fact that events are acknowledged and done in Gods name thats important not that its celebrated on the exact day the event took place.

    To God time is eternal and of no real importance to him, our loyalty to Him and our peace with each other as a body united in one with christ is whats important to Him, churches calendars are different because it keeps the peace with each other, dont go trying to disturb the peace by trying to squeeze christians and followers of God into a mould that suits you.
    God is the potter and we are His clay, He shapes us all individually to suit his own purpose in building His kingdom of heaven on earth through us and its our individuality that defines us and keeps us free from conformists and communism.

    Sorry if that seems like a long winded speech but I felt like something like that had to be said

    Chriss316 don't be so fearful. Jesus is supposed to be ruling over all of the nations. That doesn't make Jesus the antichrist does it? The global New Jerusalem society is what would happen if Jesus ruled the hearts of all the people. You should want it to happen. Don't be fearful.

    Not so! As a Christian what I pray for is the day when the Lord returns and this old present earth and it's system of things passes away and there is a new heaven and a new earth where there is no more sin or death or pain or weeping, and the New Jerusalem which God has created will come down out of heaven from God. The New Jerusalem is the New Covenant Jerusalem and it already exists. But only those born of the spirit can see the Kingdom of God and His Holy City and walk in it's light.

    That's the Gospel.

    In Christ,
    Pilgrimer

    As an evangelical Protestant I have been studying New Testament history for over 30 years with the express purpose of casting aside any and all traditions and determining to the best of my ability the truth about the dates on which Christendom celebrates the events in the life of Jesus. And after 30 years of unbiased and dedicated study I have found that the weight of the historical and archaeological data does in fact support the dates you listed and which have been obeserved by Christendom since the beginning of the faith.

    In Christ,
    Pilgrimer

    I am in complete agreement with everything you said up to the last sentence, and there we may have a difference of opinion.

    You said "we participate in the Kingdom of Heaven every time we celebrate the liturgy."

    Does that mean that when we are not celebrating the liturgy we are not participating in the Kingdom of Heaven?

    Jesus said we must be "born again," or "born of the spirit" in order to even see the Kingdom of God. Which is understandable since the Kingdom of God is a heavenly, spiritual kingdom, invisible and unknowable to the physical senses.This spiritual rebirth experience is also referred to as being "regenerated," or being raised from spiritual death to spiritual life. Only those who have been raised to life in the spirit can experience the spiritual Kingdom of Heaven, in the same way that only those who are alive physically can experience the physical world.

    With that understanding you can perhaps see why I believe that when one is born again, or regenerated, we become a citizen of God's Heavenly Kingdom and walk continually in it's light, not just when we take part in the liturgy.

    In Christ,
    Pilgrimer

    The Gregorian calendar is not the cause of sin, and a new calendar is not the remedy for sin. The blood of Jesus is the remedy for sin, but the vast majority of the earth's population will not avail themsleves of that remedy because they love their sins.

    But some will, and for the sake of those few who are yet to be saved the Lord is patient and longsuffering, not willing to bring the world to an end and destroy the wicked and put an end to sin until the last soul that is willing is brought into His Kingdom.

    Then the end will come. But it will not be brought about by a calendar, or by the efforts of man, but by the return of Jesus.

    Besides, the dates celebrated on the Gregorian calendar correspond to the dates on the Jewish (Biblical) calendar. Passover on the Jewish calendar was not on March 21 which is the vernal equinox, Passover was on the 14th day after the new moon of the vernal equinox.

    In Christ,
    Pilgrimer
