Man's Holidays

" not inquire after their gods, saying, 'How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.' You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way; for every abomination to the LORD which He hates they have done to their gods" (Deuteronomy 30:)

Many of man's religious holidays are repackaged versions of the very pagan festivals that God hates and forbids His people from following. Are you worshiping God the way He wants to be worshiped?

3 Reasons I Don't Miss Out by Not Keeping Christmas

I’ve never celebrated Christmas. A lot of people have the same question when they find this out. “Don’t you miss out? I mean, don’t you ever wish you kept Christmas?” It doesn’t bother me when people ask that. They’re usually well-meaning and just don’t understand how I can do without something that seems so good to them.

My answer is always the same. “Nope, I don’t miss out at all!” Here’s why.

Merry, Mary and Marry

Don’t you love our English language and all those homonyms, homophones, homographs and heteronyms? Do merry, Mary and marry have anything in common? What do all three have to do with Christmas, if anything?

Holidays or Holy Days: Does It Matter Which Days We Observe?

Holidays or Holy Days: Does It Matter Which Days We Observe?

Many people are shocked to discover the origins of our most popular religious holidays. They are also surprised to find that the days God commands us to observe in the Bible—the same days Jesus Christ and the apostles kept—are almost universally ignored. Why? Also, why are today's supposedly Christian holidays observed with so many rituals and customs that are not sanctioned anywhere in the Bible? In this booklet you'll discover detailed answers to these questions.

Easter: The Rest of the Story

Easter: The Rest of the Story

Many believing Christians celebrate Easter as a way to honor Jesus Christ's resurrection. But Easter is a day with very different roots—stretching long ago into pre-Christian paganism. The Bible alone has the truth of Jesus' life, death and resurrection, and it shows a different set of celebrations—the Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread—that give us the real story that Easter doesn't tell us.
