Fearing the Keeping of Holy Days & the Spiritual Bondage of Christmas, Easter, Etc

Galatians 4:9-11King James Version (KJV)

But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

2 Peter 2:21King James Version (KJV)

21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

“ The Spiritual Bondage Of Christmas, Easter, Etc. ”
Well said Asa! The following quote is interesting and sadly demonstrates how far our generation of Protestant and Reformed churches have fallen into the spiritual bondage of keeping Pagan and Roman Catholic holy days, which are not authorized by God in the Bible: In 1899, the General Assembly of the PCUS was overtured to give a “pronounced and explicit deliverance” against the recognition of “Christmas and Easter as religious days.” Even at this late date, the answer came back in a solid manner: “There is no warrant in Scripture for the observance of Christmas and Easter as holydays, rather the contrary (see Gal. 4:9-11; Col. 2:16-21), and such observance is contrary to the principles of the Reformed faith, conducive to will-worship, and not in harmony with the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” – Kevin Reed, Christmas: An Historical Survey Regarding Its Origins and Opposition to It (Free Online Book at http://ow.ly/yacpW).

  1. In Judaism there is seen types and shadows of things to come through the feasts but you can find NO types or shadows in any pagan traditions that point to the true Messiah, Jesus Christ. That is why religious paganism is unredeemable and God hates it. So, why are you setting up the tree and greenery in the house which is for the false sun god?
