Chinese Zodiac and followers of Christ

Recommended Posts

Since 2015 is the Year of the Sheep, should not the followers of the Lamb of God expect great things?  Surely, this is a season to be praying, to be sharing our faith, to 'never tire in doing good works, and to always be found 'about the Father's business.'  :D

 

Or...Am I just trying to Christianize an Asian pagan system of fortune telling???  :eek:

You may have something there.  But given Peter's denial of our Lord, one wonders about the significance of the Year of the Rooster, and whether 2017 will be a year of betrayals, forsaking, and abandonment.

 

I thought about trying to find a girlfriend in 2015, and your post gave me the idea of seeing what the Chinese zodiac might predict for me this year.  It said the following about my sign: "Their romantic life will not be very good in 2015; therefore, single people should not get their hopes up."  (Really.  Google it if you don't believe me.)

Ironically, growing up I would never actually read my fortune cookies.  I always made up a saying that I wanted to be true--usually one with Christian-sounding undertones.  Maybe I haven't grown up.

I have never grown up either .......Lol!!!

The truth is - that all things are possible to them that believe.  If you believe you can or believe you cannot - you are right.  The Zodiac has nothing to do with it.

Hehe. well great and terrible are supposed to be the last days....

But on the funky side I've heard that there is small ancient culture in china that has had prophetic legends about a christlike figure, which i do want to learn more about.

we always add phrase after the statement on the paper, like "... in the bathtub." makes it much more fun ^.^
