  1. So would having a egg hunt and coloring the eggs be wrong too? I see that God made the animals,and at spring time many animals have there babies, Although, this is much like the Easter festivity. I don’t want to do anything that would bring my relationship with May Saviour down. Also Dinner with family and brethren, and friends, sometimes because most of us have those days off work. I’m a X Jw, so I used to not do any of it. But really go to my mother and father’s house and have dinner. But I always try to give my grandchildren, gifts so they won’t feel left out, before the holidays. And I give them something for their birthday. What is your thoughts? Thank you for such good information. I knew much of it. Although, much of what the Jw’s consider wrong, is mostly everything. They do have some truth. Just they don’t see the Ransom, like I and most do. Grace, is what I mean by that. Although, I know too, we are not to walk on it, but once I saw the redeeming sacrifice by grace, I cried, all day, and probably all week and even now thinking about how long my eyes had been blinded. How long I had been in that relligion. Hurting, suffering. My fault. I should have been searching as the beareians, the scriptures.. They “Jw’s” don’t see the Jewish Nation. I always was working for salvation. What a load off my shoulders. Now I heard a call, I excepted it, and hope to make it sure. But now I do have my work cut out for me. lol. But I LOVE IT. I NEVER SEEM TO GET ENOUGH. i hope and pray i keep it always. I fell down a couple of good ones. I only hope that doesn’t mean that I’m not in the race. Do you know? Please let me know. Email me back. Thank you for all such wonderful news. Even if it be a serious sin, does one in a consecrated state, does it mean they are not in the race anymore? 2nd death? Or can they be forgiven? bye for now.

  2. Thank you for your reply to my letter. I and would like to let you know, that you quoted Job 1:4; You had said it was not bad to give gifts. As for you quoting of the scripture Job 1:4; Job was giving a sacrifice for his children because he thought that they may have sinned against God. So having a day for yourself as in a birthday, I see it as showing it in a bad light. What is your thought on this.

    Sincerely Rowena.

    1. Rowena, Thanks for your interesting question. I think your concern is that if Job’s thought his sons may have sinned, then that was a bad thing. Let’s read the passage. Job 1:4-5 (NASV) “4 His sons used to go and hold a feast in the house of each one on his day, and they would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them.
      5 When the days of feasting had completed their cycle, Job would send and consecrate them, rising up early in the morning and offering burnt offerings according to the number of them all; for Job said, “Perhaps my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus Job did continually.”

      The expression “It may be” comes from Strong’s 0194 and has the thought of “perhaps, peradventure or suppose.” So Job was playing it safe, sort of like when we purchase an auto insurance policy. If we get into an accident we are covered. That is a smart thing to do.

      The fact that Job thought it was possible his sons could have sinned shows his wisdom and humility as opposed to family pride and superiority. Job realized we are all fallen sinners.

      Romans 3:23 (NKJV) says, “10 …There is none righteous, no, not one… 12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one… 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”

      Sacrifices were a GOOD thing. Many of God’s faithful offered sacrifices to him, including Able, Noah, Abraham, Samuel, etc. Israel had an annual “Day of Atonement” sacrifice (Leviticus 16) in which the bullock and goat were offered for the sins of the people. This annual sacrifice was a cause for happiness since it gave Israel another year that their sins could be reckoned forgiven. We hope you find this of assistance in your studies. – Christian Questions
