Stop the World! I want to get off!



Sometimes enough is enough. I am getting a little tired of the articles that are being posted by people of faith regarding a certain “day” set aside for “pagan” activities.

There are articles like  and this one   and I am sure there are many others as well. The issue resides in the fact that posting articles such as these are simply one sided and condemning. I could easily make a convincing presentation with scripture with the opposite viewpoint of the articles that is life giving and full of redemption but why bother when you could read this one or this one in order to get a balanced perspective. Goodness, if we are going to attack one “pagan” day let’s hold the standard high against them all…that includes Christmas and Easter.  

I grew up in what I would have called strong Christian fundamental leanings, yet oddly enough my parents had no problems with us getting dressed up and going door to door, putting up a Christmas tree and handing out chocolate Easter bunnies.

1 Corinthians 9:19-23 is clear. It becomes a matter of conscience as to how believers are interact with their cultural surroundings. But let's agree to disagree without condemning those who do or don't!
