Financial crisis
« on: January 04, 2009, 05:46:24 PM »

We've all been hearing a lot about the financial crisis in the last months, but we don't hear much about what it means.
Funny how people use words without thinking about what they mean...

From m-w.com:

fi·nance 
Pronunciation:
\fə-ˈnan(t)s, ˈfī-ˌ, fī-ˈ\
Function:
noun
Etymology:
Middle English, ending, payment, from Anglo-French, from finer to end, pay, from fin end
Date:
1739

From Strong's Greek Lexicon:

krisis

kree'-sis decision (subjectively or objectively, for or against); by extension, a tribunal; by implication, justice (especially, divine law):--accusation, condemnation, damnation, judgment.

Thought it was interesting that the term "financial crisis" can actually be turned into "end judgment" or "The last judgment".
Even if it's might not be THE Last judgment, the financial crisis is definitely a judgment. I used to think that judgment was only something to fear, but now we all know that judgment brings GOOD things.

God bless you,

Here’s how to tell if you have faith; how do you live… what do you do… what do you accomplish in life… what are your goals… What is there about you that proves that you have this faith and belief inside of you? What?
