What is history?
Now is history.
This week, my professor was building up our history background from Adam and Eve up to Joseph Smith restored the Church. He didn’t mention any specific verses from the scriptures, but he just simply drew a line. Adam and Eve, Enoch, Noah, …, Babylon, Greek, …, Joseph Smith. This is so incredible that someone who can easily line up the whole history without looking at any notes. I can’t believe what I just saw. He then shared many different stories to extend the line with some up branches and down branches. History teaches us many things. If someone says 1+1=2, then there must be some other people saying 1+1=3.
No matter how many times the mistakes have happened, human beings still make the same mistakes. I cannot understand the reasons why we argue so frequently. Do I gain anything from winning an argument? Nothing. Do I prove anything that can help me improve? Nothing. Do I understand more about anything? No! Then, why should I argue? I don’t know the answers. All I know is that time is still going, and I am not refining.
When I first time saw the word "History," I recognized the word as "His Story." As a non-native speaker, I always try to figure out how words are created because this is so interesting! Dose "His" mean God? I didn’t know. However, now, I know that it is. History reveals how perfect His plan is. Every single event is prophesied in the Little Library and in the Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Awesome!
I should try to learn more about history because it does show some hidden messages! I should try to not make the same mistakes I made before! I should reinforce my gears!
我的歷史不太好 XD 所以不知道要在這個主題下寫什麼 :PPP 我想我只能說歷史事件發生時，我相信活在那時候的人也不知道那個事件會成為歷史吧 ! 不論發生了什麼 ，現在我們就是歷史 !! (唬爛話總是很會說，可真的有這麼想 !? 哈哈)
