As we enter into the season of Advent, it is appropriate to raise the question of the practice itself. Is it legitimate to celebrate extra-biblical feasts or is this a violation of God's law? Before celebrating Advent and Christmas, we must be assured that such a celebration is pleasing to God. So let us answer two questions today: first, is it necessary to celebrate extra biblical feasts? Does obedience to God consist therein? Second, is it permissible to celebrate extra biblical feasts? If so, under what circumstances is it permissible?
