2-10-2016 “Mardi Gras” And The Bible

Though Mardi Gras is not officially approved by the Roman Catholic Church, it is officially ignored! It is the Tuesday of sinful excesses before their official “Ash Wednesday” beginning their 40 penitential days of “Lent.” (1) None of this is taught in the New Testament of God’s Word; (2) Everyone who practices these things do so by the authority of the apostate Roman Catholic Church, not God; (3) Before conversion, Christians “once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others” (Ephesians 2:3 NKJV), but not afterward; (4) Paul preached to Jews and Gentiles “that they should repent, turn to God, and do works befitting repentance” (Acts 26:20 NKJV), but there was never a “season of repentance.”

An Example Of Bible Weather

In Acts 14:17, Luke records that God “did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness” (cf. Leviticus 26:4; Deuteronomy 11:14; Deuteronomy 28:12; Job 5:10; Psalm 65:10; Psalm 68:9; Psalm 147:8; Jeremiah 14:22).

God “did good” by providing the weather needed to produce (1) rain; (2) fruitful seasons; (3) food. Without the changing weather patterns which produce the “fruitful seasons” (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) none of this would be possible.
