If I had to guess, the NIV: the translation that proclaims 99.9% accuracy, and the translation that credible Biblical scholars think is the most riddled with mistranslations. The NIV, in particular, is notorious for taking an ambiguous verse, applying the traditional misinterpretation, and then amplifying it. This verse in 1 Corinthians would be an example of that.

Indeed. That's why A.D. 0 was intended to be set at the year of Jesus' birth and not His death (traditionally, A.D. 33). And since Jesus isn't "dead," in the theological sense, we're still living with Christ, and, as such, we're in the 2007th "year of the Lord."

I interchange between BC/AD and BCE/CE commonly, I don't like the blatantly Christian former, but I don't really like the supposed attempt of political correctness of the latter. I guess I can't be pleased.
As I said, it was the literal translation in Germany we either say Vor/Nach Christus (Before/After Christ), or Vor/Nach Christi Geburt (Before/After Christ's birth).

Either way, we don't care that this guy called Christ is in it at all. There are more important things we have to deal with.

Whoops, I didn't see your location! Sorry about that.

On the last line, very true.

How is it a wiki if the pages are locked? I was just going to delete them.

Yeah I wanted to do some editing vandalism but I think you have to register and get your conservative/psycho cristian extremist credentials verified before they'll let you post, and then if your first 15 edits don't involve adding bible citations, you lose your privileges.
