Solomon tells us in
ECCLEASIASTES
7:1 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.

But it pleased herod in
MATTHEW
14:6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

You have to research the origins of customs and traditions to see whether they have pagan origins or not - most do.

John 14:14 says that we are to worship the Father in spirit and in truth.

The Bible tells us HOW to keep the Feast Days and not these so called man-made heathen holidays.

Think about that, have a nice day.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5786799


The Jews didn't celebrate birthdays which means Jesus didn't either. Bdays were celebrated by pagans. The early Christians didn't celebrate them either for the same reason. Birthdays were always mentioned in a bad light. John the Baptist was murdered at one as well as Pharoah's cup bearer.

Definitely not made for this world--at least not this century.

...you are dangerous to everyone---not because you are ungifted, but because you embrace evil with your teachings. In so doing, in trying to be kind, to be unselfish, in trying to be nonjudgmental, you allow evil to become far more powerful than it otherwise would. You refuse to see evil, and so you welcome it among you. You allow it to exist. You give it power over you. You are a people who have welcomed death and refuse to denounce it. You are an empire naked to the shadow of evil. Terry Goodkind, NAKED EMPIRE

Here's the point:

Birthdays are of a pagan origin.

Are you following me?

Christmas is supposed to be the birthday of the Messiah, Jesus the Christ.

Right?

If birthdays are pagan(the Bible teaches AGAINST paganism) then how does this glory the Father?

Oh... it all makes sense of how I worded the questions now doesn't it...lol.

[link to www.cogwriter.com]

The first century Jewish historian Josephus noted that Jewish families did not celebrate birthdays:

Nay, indeed, the law does not permit us to make festivals at the birth of our children, and thereby afford occasion of drinking to excess (Josephus. Translated by W. Whiston. Against Apion, Book II, Chapter 26. Extracted from Josephus Complete Works, Kregel Publications, Grand Rapids (MI), 14th printing, 1977, p. 632).

-----------

"There is no tradition in Judaism of celebrating birthdays as holidays, otherwise we would expect holidays for the birthdays of Moses and Abraham, among others, but there is no such thing. The Bible does not even record their birthdays, just as the New Testament does not record the date of Yeshua’s birth." [link to www.amfi.org]
--------------

Where Pharaoh killed his chief baker on his birthday...

Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants. Then he restored the chief butler to his butlership again, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh's hand. But he hanged the chief baker (Genesis 40:20-22).

---------------

On Herod's birthday he had John the Baptist killed.

But when Herod's birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod. Therefore he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, "Give me John the Baptist's head here on a platter." And the king was sorry; nevertheless, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he commanded it to be given to her. So he sent and had John beheaded in prison. And his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother (Matthew 14:6-11).

------------------

Keep reading the article at the link that tells how Christians did not celebrate their birthdays either and why. The bible does not speak well when it comes to birthdays at all.

 Quoting: 4Evergirl


Jesus only commanded Christians remember his death when he instituted his memorial in place of the passover. His death is what is important because he died for our sins. His birth was a given and his resurrection was a given. But the agreeing to die for us was only his to make. He could have backed out but didn't. That is what makes his death so important. So just like Passover is celebrated once a year, the memorial of Jesus death is to be celebrated once a year in place of it.

the birthday originated with the Zoroastrians. it has an astrological basis. before the Mithraic influence (which came from Zoroastrianism) as it came to the Roman Empire, nobody cared about their "birth day".

Jesus replaced the passover meal with the memorial of his death and told(commanded) his followers(Christians) to do this every year in remembrance of him/his death.

Luke 22:19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

This is to be done once a year in place of the passover celebration. This wasn't a request by Jesus. He TOLD them/us to do this without fail.

If you keep reading the feast days were "nailed to the cross". All that remains is God's 10C law with the correct weekly Sabbath.

No other feasts or holidays or birthdays required.

Birthdays would be a special day to express love for a close person. It does not violate any of God's law.
 Quoting: - 30541819


Actually, YHWH's law was never "nailed to the cross" as most Christians will have you believe. What was nailed to the cross was our curse for breaking his law. The punishment. Yeshua paid the fine for transgressing the law. He didn't wipe out the law altogether. That is a lie of the Catholic Institution, passed down through the generations. And quite easy to see with a little Bible Study. I believed that lie for 30 years of my life. Can't believe I fell for something so obviously untrue.

"Christians" as well as "Jews" are to keep the law. ALL of those claiming YHWH are to keep the Holy Law of Moses as they are ALL part of Israel and Yah's family. Some are bloodline Israel, some are "grafted in". All are the House of Israel and subject to it's laws.

Anyone claiming YHWH and the gift of his son, Yeshua, are part of Israel and subject to it's laws. Period. End of story.

Nowhere in the Bible are we told to celebrate birthdays. We also see no evidence of Israel celebrating them. Birthdays are a reflection of self and generally anything that originates from self is prideful and sinful.
