Many fiscal years also start early too; the government's FY06 started last October, and my firm's FY07 starts in APRIL!!!  Does this make people feel like they're getting a jump on the new year?  Absurd if you ask me; if you're too good for the Gregorian calendar, go back to 17th century Russia . . .
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .
