    Our Guest Jason thickpenny had some technical difficulties and so we were unable to interview him but in this episode I was able to share the meaning of idolatry in light of Christian holidays. I hope you will get to enjoy some of what i shared. I am sharing some key texts and points from my sermon on the same theme.

    Acts 17:22-33 - Paul Uses a pagan statue to share the gospel

    Pagan deities, along with the sun and the moon, have provided the basis for the naming of the days of the week: Sunday (Sun day), Monday (Moon day), Tuesday (Tiw's day), Wednesday (Woden's day), Thursday (Thor's day), Friday (Frig's day), and Saturday (Saturn's day)

    We do not refrain from using the word "flower," even though Flora was the goddess of flowers. nor the word "ocean," even though Oceanus, son of Uranus, was the god of the sea. Other Things With Pagan Origins - Dinner Napkins, Toilets, Neckties, Suits, Church Steeples, wind chimes, pacifiers

    Rom 14:13-14 - “Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way. I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean

    1 Cor 8:4 “So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that "An idol is nothing at all in the world" and that "There is no God but one."
