LENT. Why I choose to give up Lent* for Lent (and always).
Once again it is the time of year to gently preach the gospel to ourselves re: Lent.
* Lent = Lent-type beliefs and practices:
“Rules about what you should / should not eat, or do / not do are a mere shadow of reality, based on self-imposed false humility, commanded by puffed up people who are disconnected from Christ the head of the church. Since you died with Christ to such things, why do you still submit to such rules as though you still belong to the world?” (Col 2:16-23).
Please, contact me for any of several papers on this subject by others and me.
