OK. We are not trying to spoil literally everything quote-unquote “fun” in our daily lives, but as CHRISTians we are called to live for CHRIST. The innocent Lamb who died for our sins on the cross. If he endured all that pain and we can’t even give a second thought to what we take for granted, then we should ask Him for the strength and courage to face these issues which we might not even know may be affecting us.
Valentine’s Day. A day for lovers. Love is in the air and life seems a little bit better even if it is for those measly 24 hours.
What does the Bible say about it? Or more specifically, about the passions of the flesh? Or is it that we’re that naïve that we think Valentine’s Day is celebrated only by married couples the world-around?
Well, apart from this holiday being another marketing stunt to try and get Americans to spend to stimulate the economy, turns out that Valentine’s Day is yet another attempt by the Roman Catholic church to get people to celebrate a pagan holiday known as Lupercalia which was a fertility festival where gluttony, drunkenness and by implication sexual immorality were encouraged.
YES, God is love, but God is not a God of confusion or disorder. He calls us to hold fast to our wives in Matthew 19:5—that is the order of God: for man to marry a woman in equal yoke and to enjoy her in the sanctity of marriage and not outside of it, that would be fornication; yet we see the Roman Catholic church encouraging such activity. It should come as no surprise their endorsement of homosexual sin.
