April Fools Is To Mock

Should Christians observe April Fool's Day? My research suggests that it originated as a pagan attempt to mock the Resurrection of Christ.

I think once I went to church on an April Fool's Day. I don't recall barely anyone trying to prank me or do anything to me there on that day.

True Christians should be spending everyday including April fools day with their eyes on Jesus in prayer and worship. In these days that we are living in, isn't it WONDERFUL, that we know there is a God and to really know this? Isn't it WOMDERFUL. WOW!!!!Now, I must go and hang aloof, what God tells me to do these days.

Doesnt scripture say do not learn the way of the heathen???? I love how people justify and rationalise the ways of God. Oh its ok to do heathen worship, to do things contrary to the way the Most High set for us. If its ok to learn the way of the heathen, then why not sacrifice our children to Molech in effigy, or call Yeshua Lucifer because they both call themselves the bright and morning star???? Duh!! Follow the Most High or dont, but do not walk the middle ground, or you will get smushed!!!!!

Do you or someone you know wear a tie? Did you know that ties are pagan? Christmas trees and ornaments are also pagan. So what if a certain thing ORIGINALLY wasn't the same as today? People celebrate things like Christmas because of what it means TODAY, not back then. People do different things for different reasons, does that mean that the way one group does it makes the entire thing bad for everyone? People celebrate April Fools because all it is a fun little day to pull some jokes. Also, many people don't celebrate Halloween because even TODAY, it is very anti-Biblical.

Hello Sue, I apologize for the delayed response. I just noticed the question. Man in his spiritual relationship with the Father, is to be 'as a' child, sincere, submissive, trusting, in reliance and dependence upon HIm. However concerning this worlds systems, traditions and rituals, we are to be wise and discerning. Mature in our thinking, striving to apply spiritual wisdom and understanding to sensually based situations and/or circumstances, rather than allowing sensual, immature thoughts and/or emotions to dictate our actions or responses. Babes in Christ are yet carnal and are called to perfection, or more aptly stated, maturity.

There are a lot of fools in this world. Someone trying to run a country is a fool, if they are doing so without God's help. Men can be clever in mind, but at the same time fools in spiritual matters. In Matthew 23:17, we read how the Lord called the Scribes and Pharisees fools, not implying intellectual stupidity, but spiritual blindness.Also, Jesus, warning was: Not to use the word in order to abuse others. To express hatred in one's heart. Ofcourse, only God sees the heart of man. In any case, in these ways, yes, Jesus condemned the use of the word FOOL.

Joseph (or anyone): I'm confused. If the Bible says we are not to act like children etc...then why does it say we are to believe and have faith 'like a child'?

Donna, there are 7 feasts - not three. Pesach (Passover), Unlevened Bread, First Fruits, Shavout (Pentecost)Yom Teruah (Trumpets) Yom Kippur (Atonement) and Sukkot (Tabernacles)

**Do you celebrate Holloween too?**

Actually, no, I don't.

The Bible states that if anyone calls his brother a fool they will be in danger.

What is the difference in between joking with someone tomorrow or on April Fool's Day? There is no difference in them at all. Every holiday is Pagan. Just pick and chose what holiday you want to celebrate and then do it and don't worry about what others think. If we all listen to man and his beliefs and ideas, we'd all be going to hell.

I hope someone who still has a sense of humor intact (besides me) will respond to this blog and soon :D

I love josef's answer. Chuck Pierce and Robert Heidrick and others are saying to get away from celebrating the Pagan/Roman Holidays and get on God's calendar and start celebrating his Feasts. All 3 of them.

We really need to grow up in the things of the Lord if we really love Him with all of our heart and soul.

"Should Christians observe April Fool's Day?"

"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. Brethren, be not children in understanding: Do not be children in your thinking, be babes in evil, but in thinking be mature. Now I say, [That] the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all" 1Cr 13:11>1Cr 14:20>Gal 4:1

If you observe any of the Holiday's at all, you might as well go ahead and have fun on this one. I see no difference with Easter Bunny bringing eggs and candy on the Resurrection day of Christ or Santa dropping in through the chimmey on the Brith of Christ so what's the difference. One day is as big a fool day as the other. Do you celebrate Holloween too? Oh, you ask should a Christian observe these days, Go to the instruction book and find out, it tells you straight up what to do. Is jesting a sin, is mockery a sin, ummmm.
