And Yehova is definitely incensed when men celebrate on pagan feast dates.

Indeed! I recall scriptures concerning a lecture to the Israelites, "not to learn the ways of the heathens (pagans)"! I'm pretty sure those rules apply to the branch as well!

To: Errant

the Apostle says,... “let no one act as your judge in regard to . . .”

He is saying don’t let anyone tell you these things are ‘requirements’ for fellowship with God.... They were only shadows of the person and work of Christ,.... He has not only come and fulfilled those shadows, but He is ‘totally sufficient’.

Colossians 2:16 and 17.... in no way forbids believers from commemorating something such as the birth of Christ if it is done out of love, devotion, and the joy the season gives when used as a way of focusing on the Savior and not as a religious duty...... The issue is not the observance date or time, but the reason, the attitudes and the spirit in which it is done.
