CGG Post on Valentine’s Day


In a few weeks, on February 14th, much of the world will celebrate “Valentine’s Day”.

CGG posted part of a news article from an Oklahoma newspaper on the subject that stated:

Well, we’ve come through Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s in reasonably good shape. The next mid-winter holiday on the calendar is St. Valentine’s Day — a day to declare your affection for that special someone. And what did Saint Valentine have to do with love notes and affection? Absolutely nothing! In fact, there’s a good chance he may never have existed…

However the Christian church leaders in Rome didn’t like the celebration. Too pagan-like, they said. But, knowing the celebration was too popular for them to end, they gave it some Christian respectability instead.

Of course that will not stop many people from observing a repackaged pagan holiday, but perhaps some will study into this and realize that it is not the type of observance that the God of the Bible would promote.

Perhaps it should be mentioned that Greco-Roman leaders of what purports to be mainstream “Christianity” have long compromised with doctrine to prevent losing members.
