New agers, neo-pagans gather to greet solstice
Self-styled Druids, new-agers and thousands of revelers have watched the sun rise above the ancient stone circle at Stonehenge to mark the summer solstice - the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere.

English Heritage, which manages the monument, says some 36,000 sun-watchers gathered on the Salisbury Plain about 80 miles (130 kilometers) southwest of London on Saturday. Police say the event was peaceful with only 25 arrests, mainly for drug offenses.

John Yurich, to which I would say that they did not observe the christianized pagan celebrations. see previous documentation as posted from Andrew Webb's PDF file on strange fire (profane worship).
Don't you care to know the Truth? Why must you create your own theology or subscribe to the popular "theological" ones that appeal to the flesh? If you would desire to follow the born again protestant reformers, you would not observe holidays.

All of the Protestant Reformers were Born Again by reason of having embraced Jesus as their Savior and thus they were guided by the Holy Spirit in what doctrines to have in their churches.

Those who are adamant in cleaving to their "holy-days" just bear out that it is always a big challenge to take "christmas" and the like to task by way of reason.
Traditions of men seem to usually trump the Word of God in this regard. Sadly, many evangelicals are very "catholic" in this manner.

The secular aspects of Christmas and Easter are pagan but the religious aspects of Christmas and Easter are not pagan as the religious aspect of Christmas is the Birth of Jesus and the religious aspect of Easter is the Resurrection of Jesus.

Luther and the rest of the reformers retained unsound doctrine which can easily be proven by using their own words against the Word of God itself. While the Holy Spirit may have chosen Luther to spearhead the reformation, Luther came out with one eye open; retaining, teaching, and preaching direct contradictions which can easily be proven. To say I do this or that because Luther did it and Luther couldn't err is no different that believing the popes claim of infallibility when speaking ex-cathedra, which is basically whenever he speaks about anything. People should only be listened to insofar as when what they say/said, jives perfectly with Gods Word. Period. End of story. Finito.

I'll echo BRF's statement with a copy of a PDF file off of Pastor Andrew Webb's SermonAudio sermon-strange fire...
Festival days, vulgarly called Holy-days, having no warrant in the
word of God, are not to be
continued.” – Westminster Directory for Public Worship
There is no warrant in Scripture for the observance of Christma
s and Easter as holy days, rather the
contrary (see Gal. 4:9-11; Col. 2:16-21), and such observance is contrary
to the principles of the 5
Reformed Faith, conducive to will worship, and not in harmony with the sim
plicity of the Gospel of
Jesus Christ. --General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church i
n the United States (Southern
Presbyterians), Deliverance on Christmas and Easter (1899).
This information is documented.

Jesus didn't even celebrate His own birthday and He certainly didn't tell us to either. The first church didn't set aside a day to celebrate ANYONE'S birthdays. They were about spreading the Gospel, as we all should be. The birth, death and resurrection of Jesus is an everyday celebration... not a once a year reminder. I'm thankful every day for the sacrifice... I'm a sinner unworthy of Jesus.

John Y., what's Easter, Christians don't celebrate amything on Easter!
American Tract Dictionary (1859) wrote:
EASTER:

Is improperly put for PASSOVER, Ac 12:4; [in the KJV, anyway] Passover being the name of the ancient Jewish festival here referred to; while Easter, from the Saxon goddess Eostre, is the modern name of a Christian festival, in commemoration of the events of Passover-week, and fixed at the same period of the year.

Now, we do take note of Resurrection Sunday, though of course it really should be tied into more closely to Passover also.

Anyway, John Y., it isn't what Satan's Church gets right, it's the heresies it has added which makes it damnable, List of Heresies and Human Traditions Adopted and Perpetuated by the Roman Catholic Church in the Course of 1600 Years.. Come Out Of The Catholic Church. Stop being like these pagans at Stone Henge, It's no better to worship the wafer-god. Spit the the poisonous bread out the next time the priest puts it in your mouth.

John the wise men came after the birth of Christ to worship Christ and not to celebrate his birth. It was not even the same visit to Bethlehem as in Luke's account of Christ's birth, in Luke 2:29 they go back to Nazareth in Matt2:14 they went to Egypt. They also went into a house Matt2:11 no stable. This was most likely on the many visits a devout Jew like Joseph would make, which was required three times a year for the feasts. Neither scripture, Christ or the Apostles ever celebrated or commands the celebration of Christ's birth.

John Yurich, you might ask our Christian ancestors the same question. "christmas" and "easter" are christianized pagan celebrations which the catholic church devised. "christmas" actually means the mass of Christ or death of Christ and "easter" or asherah/astarte/venus (btw: lots and lots of examples of asherah worship in the OT)... worship is pagan in origins. Just because you observe something in a different light doesn't mean that it is acceptable. Would you call your gift-giving day "gay day"? We could take a lesson from our Christian forefathers. If you do your homework, you may be surprised and, dare i say, disappointed if your main concern is with pleasing the flesh and following suit in the vain traditions of man. Just an aside: usually anything that has such value in the catholic church such as christmas and easter, should be a dead give away as to to its' merit.

Worshipers of Nature and mother Earth"Nature" is a heartless,souless and cruel brutal force that dresses it's self in a pleasant disguise,it would kill us all if God allowed it to,it in fact kills millions every year....it is not worthy of worship of any kind.

The beaches in my area have a lot of rip currents,yes there are the "Scientific" explanations,but how convenient that they wait just off shore to drag people to their death.
