Observant Jews, Christians, and biblical festivals
Re: Jews must make tough choice between work, school and religion
If you're an observant Jew, there are seven religious holidays in the next month that you will have to take off from work or school.
And if you're an observant Christian, a Sabbath-keeping Church of God member (who keeps the biblical Sabbath, festivals and dietary laws like Yeshua and the early Church of God), you take off the biblical days the Bible commands us to (without the additional days Judaism - for its traditional reasons - has tacked on).
If our Jewish brethren find it so difficult to love and obey God in their self- imposed exile, at least they can always opt to follow Judaism to the Jewish homeland where such holy days, the biblical festivals, are recognized and kept. Furthermore, the Holy Land of Israel is the ideal location to celebrate before the LORD!
