However, I am sure you will catch on to the meaning of what it is to be cheap.

Now, what did I do with that mineral glass of multiple facets?

People are not forced to give from the heart on a specific day, but neither should they be made to think it is some kind of sin. And, your belief's about a false entity called Satan is irrelevant, although you do make it an idol of your heart by refusing to do something on a specific day? Can I get a "boo" to you?

It was Jesus who said to be no part of this world--They do not fit in.

Actually, that came from the mindset of religious men who wanted to dominate others by imposing the ideology of fearmongering in order to hold people hostage within the realm of a darkened mind and heart.

Like july 4 holiday in usa. founded from men blowing each others heads off then turned into a celebration from false reasonings. Satan owns 99%
Yet you ignore the Scripture that I posted and bring up a different holiday---that has nothing to do with spirituality. You haven't one bit of authority to tell those free in Christ what holidays they must refrain from if they celebrate them to the glory of God.

I'm an Anabaptist in belief and do not take glory in celebrating war. I'm opposed to flying American flags in church, or singing primarily "nationalist" war songs in church. And I'm a Vietnam veteran who volunteered to go over there and volunteered for every patrol my unit sent out. I was born into a military family and we moved all over the U.S. and across both oceans.

But now I oppose war. July 4th is NOT a spiritual holiday. The mixture of it with churches is part of the dumbing down of Scripture by fundamentalists who like to tell us on what days we are allowed to worship or praise God.

The demon you need to be concerned about looks at you in the mirror every morning before urging you to post this kind of nonsense.

Yet Jesus' example was that HE was a part of the world. He ate and drank with sinners, even invited Himself to their homes to fellowship with them.

You, however, are better than Jesus, and wouldn't stoop to such a low standard???

Jesus promoted Gods kingdom-Luke 10, Acts 20:20. John 5:30)-- lived to do his Fathers will as do the true followers-Matthew 7:21

I know its fact about the worlds celebrations. Satan is the ruler of this world, Jesus said. I know July 4th isn't spiritual. Its nationalistic.
