"The traditions, beliefs and symbols that are not biblical have normally been directly influenced by pagan traditions. " I am curious as to which you are speaking of. As I learned more about Jesus in the Bible, I didnt like the fact that a tree was in my house full of ornaments. Nor do I think Easter is about bunnies or eggs. So I taught my children and Grandson about the biblical events more intensely during the "pagan" celebrations as not to take away from the focus of Jesus. We are in the world not of it.
