These studies are meant to help you understand the origins behind some religious traditions because some of these origins are pagan religious practices that are specifically forbidden by God…

The LORD says, “Do not start following pagan religious practices. Do not be in awe of signs that occur in the sky even though the nations hold them in awe. (Jeremiah 10:2)

10:1-16 The prophet shows the glory of Israel’s God, and exposes the folly of idolaters. Charms and other attempts to obtain supernatural help, or to pry into futurity, are copied from the wicked customs of the heathen. Let us stand in awe, and not dare provoke God, by giving that glory to another which is due to him alone. He is ready to forgive, and save all who repent and believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ. Faith learns these blessed truths from the word of God; but all knowledge not from that source, leads to doctrines of vanity. –Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

Times change, peoples change, customs change, but memories linger. And with God, one day is as a thousand years (Psalm 90:4), so ancient customs are still very fresh in his mind. Since it’s never a good idea to make God angry, we want to help you be sensitive to God’s holiness…

Starting with the prophecy of Isaiah written more than 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ…

Seasons Greetings

XMAS, the Diabolical Paradox
    Diabolical: of, or pertaining to, the Devil.
    Paradox: a self-contradictory statement.
Christmas is purported to be a celebration honoring the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. By simply and honestly examining the history, the scriptures and the actual practices of Christmas, it may be easily seen that it is truly a work of Satan foisted on an unsuspecting and willingly gullible humanity.

valentineThe bloody, pagan history of St. Valentine’s Day
To look at the history of St. Valentine’s Day is to examine the dark side of history itself. For St. Valentine, marriage spoke to a higher calling, a sacrament directly given from God. No matter which adventure you choose to believe, the ending is always the same: bloody martyrdom.
