Question of the Week: Is it wrong for Christians to celebrate holidays not mentioned in the Bible?
Verses: Acts 20:7, Romans 14:5-12
No. The celebration of holidays is only controversial if your motives and methods in celebrating it directly conflict with your relationship with God. There are plenty of people who approach holidays like Halloween and Christmas in very non-Christian ways, but that remains between them and God. Just because other people do things on certain days doesn’t mean that is what you are doing. How and why we celebrate anything is between us and God. And so long as you aren’t modeling the motives and methods non-Christians approach these holidays with, (glorifying evil, fornication, drunkenness, etc.), then it’s not sinful. If your conscience still doesn’t want to be apart of these things, you aren’t sinning either. Simply make sure that whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it to focus on and glorify God.
