  • That's for Catholics. I think Episcopals might do it too. Never heard of born again Christians doing that.

  • I think this may be more of a question for Catholics specifically. I (personally) don't know any non-Catholic Christians who cut out meat for lent.

  • I don't believe in being "born again". However, I do abstain from meat on Fridays during Lent.

  • Yes I eat meat on Fridays.. I do not observe it.. It is traditional and ceremonial.. There is nothing about Lent in the Bible..

  • I'm a Christian and I don't celebrate Lent. I don't really understand the point of it and it isn't based off anything that I have seen in the Bible.

  • Just because something isnt in the "bible" doesnt mean someone can't follow it according to their religion.
