I don’t observe Lent because I see no biblical warrant for the practice, but as with paedobaptism, I can respect those who feel they should observe it. It’s certainly nothing that believers should fight over. I have good friends and a few cousins who observe it.

Its certainly nothing that believers should fight over. ___________________________________________________________ Exactly! Thank you my brother in Christ. We all need to be VERY aware that Satan often laughs at how easily he divides us with such things. It would do us all well to re-read C. S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters. Provided that any of those neighbours sing out of tune or have boots that squeak, or double chins, or odd clothes, the patient will quite easily believe that their religion must therefore be somehow ridiculous. ― C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters
