“Christianity Today” Continues to Promote Non-Biblical Holidays

History of Early Christianity


While it should not come as a surprise, I was disappointed when I went to the website of Christianity Today two days ago and saw it promoting thee non-biblical holidays as if these were desirable for real Christians to observe. 

Here is what its home page stated:

February 6 – March 22, 2008
Browse our resources to learn about the history of the Lenten season and to find new ways to celebrate Christ’s life, death, and resurrection.

St. Patrick’s Day
March 17
It’s about more than green and shamrocks! Check out our special section on this humble missionary of enormous courage.

March 23
Celebrate Christianity’s most sacred holiday and find articles and resources on the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Even though “Easter” is the name of a pagan goddess and not a “Christian” holiday, at least they admit that “Lent” is a “new way” to celebrate Christ’s life, etc. as Jesus did not initiate it and it was not observed by early Christians. 

Nor, of course, were St. Patrick’s Day or Easter.  We in the Living Church of God are NOT Protestant and the endorsement of such “holidays” by a leading Protestant publication should be further evidence to any God has given “eyes to see” (Deuteronomy 29:4) that the speakers for the Protestant world are not sticking to the Bible, or sola Scriptura.

Several articles of related interest may include:

Is Lent a Christian Holiday? When did it originate? What about Ash Wednesday? If you observe them, do you know why?
Why The Living Church of God Does Not Wear Green on St. Patrick’s Day Should non-Catholics observe a Catholic holiday. Sola Scriptura or Prima Luther? What Did Martin Luther Really Believe About the Bible? Though he is known for his public sola Scriptura teaching, did Martin Luther’s writings about the Bible suggest he felt that prima Luther was his ultimate authority? Statements from him changing and/or discounting 18 books of the Bible are included. Do you really want to know the truth?
Hope of Salvation: How the Living Church of God differ from most Protestants How the Living Church of God differs from mainstream/traditional Protestants, is perhaps the question I am asked most by those without a Church of God background.
What Happened in the Crucifixion Week? How long are three days and three nights? Did Jesus die on “Good Friday”? Was the resurrection on Sunday? Do you really know? Who determined the date of Easter?
Did Early Christians Celebrate Easter? If not, when did this happen? What do scholars and the Bible reveal?
