"But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."

- Matthew 15:9

"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."

- Ephesians 5:11

"For God is not worshiped of us, but when it is his will to accept our worship: and it is not his will to accept our worship, but when it is according to his will."

- William Perkins (Puritan), A Golden Chain, or the Description of Theology

"Our Easter day, our Ascension day, our Whitsuntide is every Lord's day."

- Richard Greenham, Works, p. 421

"It is commonly objected, that we may as well keep a day for the nativity, as for the resurrection of Christ. We have answered already, that Christ's Day, or the Lord's Day, is the day appointed for remembrance of his nativity, and all his actions and benefits, as well as for the resurrection."

- David Calderwood (Covenanter), emphases added

"All human inventions which are set up to corrupt the simple purity of the Word of God, and to undo the worship which he demands and approves, are true sacrileges, in which the Christian man cannot participate without blaspheming God, and trampling his honour underfoot."

- John Calvin, emphases added

"Easter is the principal feast of the ecclesiastical year. (Pope - ed.) Leo I (Sermo xlvii in Exodum) calls it the greatest feast (festum festorum), and says that Christmas is celebrated only in preparation for Easter. It is the centre of the greater part of the ecclesiastical year. ... The first Vespers of Easter are connected now with the Mass of Holy Saturday. ... To have a correct idea of the Easter celebration and its Masses, we must remember that it was intimately connected with the solemn rite of baptism. The preparatory liturgical acts commenced on the eve and were continued during the night. When the number of persons to be baptized was great, the sacramental ceremonies and the Easter celebration were united."

- The Catholic Encyclopedia, "Easter" Article, emphases added

"We are the Easter people."

- Pope John Paul II

"Therefore Easter is not simply one feast among others, but the "Feast of feasts," the "Solemnity of solemnities," just as the Eucharist is the "Sacrament of sacraments" (the Great Sacrament)."

- Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church, Second Edition, #1169, emphases added

"In 1899, the General Assembly of the PCUS was overtured to give a 'pronounced and explicit deliverance' against the recognition of 'Christmas and Easter as religious days.' Even at this late date, the answer came back in a solid manner: 'There is no warrant in Scripture for the observance of Christmas and Easter as holydays, rather the contrary (see Gal. 4:9-11; Col. 2:16-21), and such observance is contrary to the principles of the Reformed faith, conducive to will-worship, and not in harmony with the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.'"

-  Kevin Reed, Christmas: An Historical Survey Regarding Its Origins and Opposition to It (Free Online Book), emphases added

"When the Puritans came to power in England, attention was repeatedly given to Christmas. In 1644, December 25 fell upon a day previously scheduled for a monthly fast. The Parliament debated the issue and resolved to observe the day with fasting and prayer, especially due to the present circumstances of the nation. In June 1647, Parliament passed legislation abolishing Christmas and other holidays: 'Forasmuch as the feast of the nativity of Christ, Easter, Whitsuntide, and other festivals, commonly called holy-days, have been heretofore superstitiously used and observed; be it ordained, that the said feasts, and all other festivals, commonly called holy-days, be no longer observed as festivals; any law, statute, custom, constitution, or canon, to the contrary in anywise not withstanding.'"

FREE REFORMATION RESOURCES (MP3s, BOOKS, etc.) AGAINST PAGAN AND ROMAN CATHOLIC HOLY DAYS LIKE EASTER

Why No Christmas Or Easter? by David Silversides (Web, Article)

Easter: The Devil's Holiday by Dr. C. Matthew McMahon (Web, Article)

"Easter has little to do with real Christianity. Does that surprise you? It should not. For example, Easter was not popular with the Puritans or the Pilgrim settlers in America. Neither Puritans or Pilgrims had use for ceremonies associated with religious festivals invented in either pagan history, or reinvented by Roman Catholicism. In actuality, here in the America's only after the bloodshed Civil War did Easter "begin again" to be accepted." Read More.

HISTORY OF HOLY DAYS (CHRISTMAS, EASTER, CHRISTIAN SABBATH, JEWS, etc.), IDOLATRY, ICONOCLASM, etc. by Dr. Steven Dilday (SWRB blog listing 7 free MP3s)

Much needed preaching in our day, when many Protestants worship more like Roman Catholics than like the best Reformers. This sermon contains much important Scriptural and historical information. On this topic George Gillespie (a Scottish Covenanter and Westminster Divine), in his classic work, A Dispute Against the English Popish Ceremonies Obtruded Upon the Church of Scotland, writes, "Forasmuch then, as kneeling before the consecrated bread, the sign of the cross, surplice, festival days (Christmas, Easter, etc.-ed.), bishopping, bowing to the altar, administration of the sacraments in private places, etc., are the wares of Rome, the baggage of Babylon, the trinkets of the whore, the badges of Popery, the ensigns of Christ's enemies and the very trophies of Antichrist: we cannot conform, communicate, and symbolize with the idolatrous Papists, in the use of the same, without making ourselves idolaters by participation."

Remember the Sabbath Day 5/5 (On Christmas, Easter And Other Pagan And Roman Catholic/Papal Antichrist Holy Days) - Flee Idolatry! by Greg Price (Free MP3)

Defends the classic Puritan, Reformed, Westminster Confession position on the Sabbath and man instituted "holy days" (i.e. holy days not instituted by God in Scripture). The section on Christ-mass, Easter and other holy days invented by man (and "the man of sin", the Papacy) begins part way into this message.

PASTOR GREG PRICE REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE

"I was one of those who had profited much from using the plethora of out-of-print Reformation materials offered by Still Waters Revival Books in the 62 CDs (Puritan CDs and Reformation CDs) for a number of years in  my ministry -- works that I could only have found in select libraries (usually hundreds of miles away from my residence).

With the CDs, it took a little while to go to the index of each set, locate the documents I needed, and then find the correct CD. Of course, the time was always well spent in finding that particular document that I needed.

However, now that I have the Puritan Hard Drive, I am able to use my time much more efficiently in finding that particular document I need by quickly searching for it and finding it in a matter of seconds. It's like going from "dial up" to "high-speed" Internet!

And for all of those documents that have a font that are in block letters, I am able to simply cut and paste from the Puritan Hard Drive to my own document with ease.

Amazing surprises do come in small packages!

If you want to understand Reformed theology (i.e., the whole counsel of God) the Puritan Hard Drive is unsurpassed, outside the Bible itself. The First and Second Reformations gave us the most faithful Scriptural teaching and preaching since the time of the Apostles, and there is no other resource, outside Scripture itself, where you can find so much of God's truth as in the Puritan Hard Drive.

May the Lord continue to use this most profitable tool to promote a Third Reformation that encompasses the whole world (Isaiah 2:2-4)!
