"Christians" please answer..

Why do you celebrate pagan holidays? Jesus specifically said to heed this situation you are in. Worshiping false Gods.

Follow JESUS if you are Christian, Not those after him. Most of you follow Paul, Paul wanted your death as a christian and now he has the death of your soul for breaking laws and straying.

Worhsip non other but God, Commandment #1

  • Just because someone celebrates a Pagan holiday doesn't mean they're worshiping false gods, even if they are Christian. I'll use Halloween as an example. Just because someone may take their child trick-or-treating to get free candy on Halloween doesn't mean they're worshiping anything. It depends on how you specifically partake in the day. I do not think there is anything anti-Christian about dressing my child up as something innocent, then getting free candy. We're not out sacrificing animals to the devil. We'll go door to door and say trick-or-treat. A"Christian can just as easily not celebrate "pagan holidays", yet still "break laws and stray."

  • Sorry you feel that way loving SAHMommy. I just go by what scripture states. Not by what people think. If people were perfect there would be no guidelines put in order by God.

  • I don't worship pagan Gods, or Pagan holidays. Yes I know the history behind them, but that is not what I celebrate that day. Take Christmas. Yes I am well aware that Christ was not born on Dec. 25, and thtat Priests many years ago took Pagan traditions and changed them in order to convert pagans. However, I observe Christs birth on this day. Kinda like how DS was born on Dec. 23, yet we have his party(ie the day we celebrate his birth) the first weekend of December. I am breaking no laws. I celebrate Christmas, not Yule or the Solstice. Easter, not Ostara, etc.

  • Also I feel it is very presumptuos of you to try and tell us what and where our true faith lies. You are not God therefore you cannot possibly know this.

    Does the Bible specifically say that trick-or-treating is wrong? Can you please tell me the book and verse where it says that?

  • And, I'm sorry, but who are you to tell any Christian that just because they celebrate a certain holiday that they're followers of Paul, and not Jesus?
