Subject: [chofjclist] Where's the restoration?
Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed
From MORMON DOCTRINE by Bruce McConkie:
See APOSTASY,... EASTER,...
Modern day Christians celebrate December 25th
as an annual church festival and as the traditional
day of our Lord's mortal birth.... both Christmas itself
and the whole yuletide season often take on an air
of commercialism and worldliness... but the saints
nevertheless join in....
Easter is the church festival celebrated by Christians
in commemoration of the resurrection of our Lord.
The lone scriptural reference to it (Acts 12:4) should
have been translated Passover from the Greek Pascha
found in the original. The name Easter comes from the
Norse goddess Eastre whose festival was observed at
the vernal equinox. ... Obviously, Easter... has come into
being as a compromise between pagan and apostate Christian
views,... Nonetheless the true saints gladly take it...
OK I can see the Apostsy... but where is the "restoration"?
Would someone please point out the "Restoration" group which does not
"gladly take" and "join in" what is admittedly "a compromise between pagan
and apostate Christian views"?
