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?

A blog post by Don Hooser

As a kid, I loved fireworks and my sons loved fireworks. It's a boy thing.  It made for good father-son outings.  Girls love the beautiful aerial displays, but we guys love detonating everything and making things go boom.  Firecrackers added a lot to my make-believe world of warfare.  I would become engrossed in planting my "bombs" in anthills and annihilating the enemy towns, and putting my "mines" under toy cars and see how high they would get tossed.  And a firecracker in a pipe made a mean cannon.

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.
