Holidays or Holy Days?

Does it Matter Which Days We Keep?

Many people are shocked to discover the origins of our most popular religious holidays. They are also surprised to find that the days God commands us to observe in the Bible the same days Jesus Christ and the apostles kept — are almost universally ignored. Why?

In our free booklet, Holidays or Holy Days: Does It Matter Which Days We Observe?, we compare these observances with the instructions about worship found in the Bible.

Embark on an historical and biblical journey to discover the truth about holidays and holy days!
