WHY CHURCHES OBSERVE "HOLY DAYS"
Religious institutions display great pomp and pageantry in observing certain special days. Christmas and Easter, with other related "holy days" have come to be almost universally accepted as forms of Christian worship and observance.
Those responsible for publishing this question are hard-pressed for an answer. We must confess we do not know why.
The Old Testament was recorded for our learning and for our admonition (Rom. 15:4; I Cor. 10:11). The account of Aaron's sons in Leviticus 10:1-2 should strike fear in the hearts of presumptuous worshippers. The record says that when Nadab and Abihu offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not, there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.
Another question becomes obvious: When people today offer up strange worship, which the Lord has not commanded, is not the Lord just as outraged now as he was then at the sons of Aaron? Think about it.
