We often hear that certain
Christian commemoration days are pagan. This is not so; but
certain Christian commemoration days were pagan, but these were very
cleverly converted to Christian days by the early Christian pilgrims,
as they converted the pagans. The pagans now celebrated Easter,
but with their pagan eggs, etc. which they previously used to
celebrate demons: an egg, in the end, is but an egg!
For example, easter with the
eggs and rabbits (symbols from pagan worship) Christians converted to a
Christian feast, after day cleverly persuaded/maneuvered the clan
chiefs this way. Thus the early Christian converters cleverly devised
their plans, allowing pagans to keep their feast dates and symbols, but
adding the cross and changing the Gods worshipped and doctrine taught
to that of the Gospel of Jesus. So the converted pagans then
celebrated their feast, but not in the name of wooden Gods but in the
name of Christ. This was very clever and there is nothing wrong
with these feasts, for no pagan Gods are worshipped. Go
deep into the Amazon forest and try to convert a bushman to see how
hard it must have been for those early Christians. This is why they
devised their plans and tricks in such a manner that they did not face
un-surmountable opposition from the pagans.
Christians do not celebrate pagan feast. Anyone telling you otherwise you have been warned for in the bible!
Do you need to celebrate or
observe Christian dates? No, you do not, as they are
not commandments from God. Nobody is obliged to observe
Christianist celebrations, for these are from men and not from God.
May I here also mention that
Halloween is not anti-christ as it does not involve anything that he
forbids. The creatures that go round in the evening are all made
of latex and no spirits are conjured up or worshiped.
