Paganism accepted in churches.

Post by Ironman » Tue Oct 30, 2018 5:22 pm

I just on the radio this morning, a local Anglican Church in Newcastle advertising their HALLOWEEN PARTY TONIGHT starting a 4pm till 7pm. Bring your children and enjoy the evening. We will have scary foods, costumes and games.


How sad things have become. :arrow: :arrow:


Galatians 4: 16, Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

It isn't so much "have become" as it is "has been for centuries".
The fake "churches" have usurped the pagan holidays in an effort to entice the pagans to "play along".
They are both of the same spirit.

You know as I look back over the years, I find more and more how man has changed the word of God to suit themselves rather than aligning with the word. If God could legally intervene at this time it would be amazing what would dramatically change.

Most of the men did not have an evil agenda (certainly some did), yet they were ignorant and that ignorance produced much of what we have today in many different types of practices. Consider how the meaning of the Church and worship was changed from what is in God's word and sadly it has not changed back because men won't go back to God's word and do what is shown there. Paul showed us how he had to struggle with people to get them to understand these simple things.

Interesting I agree that I often make the same observation. However, I often wonder if this observation works both ways? Do people who appear "change the word of God" but are actually growing more godly in character and behavior get judged by the same reaction? I think of Jesus and John the Baptist. The religious crowd of the day accused both of changing the word of God to suit themselves and yet Jesus and John had different directions in walking out their calling.

The point I am attempting to make, and attempting poorly I might add, is that often it is a matter of perspective and not an issue of black and white.

I know what you mean and I believe this is a big part of it. I believe perception changes with age and study. I have to always be aware of how I perceive a matter, and at best what do I have in my lifetime to compare that with? Our environment strongly shapes how we perceive a matter. Hard to place ourselves back in the times that the writers recorded the Word for us.

Ignorance will not cancel out wickedness on the day of judgement.
Had their intent been to serve God, instead of break from catholicism, we may have had a very different world now.
