SHOULD SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST CELEBRATE MOTHER'S DAY? WHERE DID IT COME FROM--CAUSE WE ARE STUDYING ABOUT TRADITION IN THIS WEEK'S QUARTER...ARE WE SERIOUS ABOUT FINDING OUT ABOUT OUR PASSED-DOWN TRADITIONS--AND ARE WE SERIOUS WHEN WE HAVE FOUND OUT IN MAKING CHANGES...MOTHER'S DAY IS DOWNLOAD AND READ AND DISCOVER FOR YOURSELF...CAUSE UNTIL HAVE NO CLUE AS TO WHAT ALL THESE CALENDAR HOLIDAYS WE ARE CELEBRATING AS SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS, WE REALLY HAVE NO BUSINESS TELLING PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF OUR FAITH ANYTHING--PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE ATTACHMENT FILE--
Ex 20:12 ¶ Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
This attitude is about respecting our parents...doing it on a particular day such as Mother's Day...well for some of us who spend little time in love, we get enough push to love somebody once a day per year....bad heh ?
Some parents hang out for that single day of love, you know some parents would otherwise never get a single phone call year after year....children do not love parents anymore....
Hope this helps
Mother's day and Father's day
Here's an article I found about this topic:
Mother's Day dates back to ancient cultures in Greece and Rome. In both cultures, mother goddesses (Queen of Heaven). were worshipped during the springtime with religious festivals. The ancient Greeks paid tribute to the powerful goddess Rhea, the wife of Cronus, known as the Mother of the Gods (Queen of Heaven). Similarly, evidence of a three-day Roman festival in Mid-March called Hilaria, to honor the Roman goddess Magna Mater, or Great Mother, dates back to 250 BCE.
As Christianity spread throughout Europe, the celebration of the "Mother Church" replaced the pagan tradition of honoring mythological goddesses. The fourth Sunday in Lent (Weeping for Tammuz), a 40-day fasting period before Easter, became known as Mothering Sunday. To show appreciation for their mothers, they often brought gifts or a "mothering cake" (Jeremiah 7:18) and over time, it began to coincide with the celebration of the Mother Church. Mother's Day always falls on the second Sun-day of May, and like so many other holidays rooted in pagan sun-worship including Father's Day which always falls on the third Sun-day of June, usually fall on the day named in honor of their most powerful god -- The Sun!
16 “ ‘Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God commanded you, ithat your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
Yes Zowi, every day should be Mother s Day
God bless our mothers
Any time a pagan comes up with something first, even when its origin with them is long forgotten, we should just completely avoid it. Thankfully Adam and Eve ate food before the pagans did or we'd all have to starve to death.
Not sure if especially the last part was meant ironic. However it made me giggle.
If you think about it a bit how much of our daily routine is actually "pagan" in origin it becomes quite ironic to expect anyone to completely avoid it all. That would feel like the impossible task i think.
lets quit this judging holidays as Pagan it gets real old and redunant u know?? can thier not be better things that u can think of that needs discussing besides something never talked about as a Salvation issue in the Bible?. IF I choose to celebrate St Patricks day will I go to Hell for it and will it stunt my Christian Experiance too.?????
Why must the same old topics in here be brought up over and over and over again that do not mean anything ??? . Their is sooo much Adventists do that is of a pagain origin and what they eat is atrcious and yet it continues on and little regard is given to matters of importance .. Why all the quibble and debates on Hoilday celebration then when the weighter matters have so litle concern hmm? When did i t become a sin to set aside a day in a a year to honor and celebrate ones Fathers an Mothers ??
i think you replied onto the wrong reply at least i hope so since i was not judging Mothers day or holidays in general. I hope i did not sound that way.
I believe we should celebrate God's holidays. They are beautiful memorials of things in the past and shadows of good things to come.
Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (KJV)
The first of the ten commandments with a promise, as many say Mothers day is every day.
