Thanksgiving originated because of the Pilgrims celebrating a year in the new land with Indians – it’s not a religious holiday.

The story of Xmas is in the bible but it isn’t called that. Xmas celebrates the birth and the star and the wise men – I don’t know the bible well but I think these things are in there… read it again.

    really??? LONG after the bible was written we made thanksgiving to thank natives for helping us fit into this new land. things still happened after the bible was written and because there are other religions and believes in the world, the earth and what everyone does simply is not decoded by what you and your friends say is write. think about if you were raised in india you would be hindu thinking you would stand out and find god your dreaming

    Thanksgiving Day
    Thanksgiving Day is a feast that most Protestants celebrate every November; however, the Church of God does not keep Thanksgiving Day. In fact, the Church only observes God’s feasts, in accordance with the teachings of the Bible.

    In 1620, more than a hundred Puritans boarded the Mayflower and left England for a New World: America. The following year, they cultivated the American soil and harvested bountiful crops. They had much to be thankful for and decided to hold a commemorative feast. This is the origin of Thanksgiving Day. George Washington, the first American president, suggested that November 26th be appointed as Thanksgiving Day. Then, in 1863, as the long and bloody Civil War came to an end, Abraham Lincoln asked all Americans to set aside the last Thursday in November as a day of thanksgiving.

    Thanksgiving Day is one of the largest national festivals celebrated in America, but it is not a religious feast. During Thanksgiving time, most companies grant their employees long vacations.

    Thus, it is acceptable that Americans have a pleasant time during this national festival, but it is blatantly incorrect to assume that Thanksgiving Day was appointed as a feast by God.

    Moreover, it is blasphemy to teach that Thanksgiving Day originated from the Day of Firstfruits—Resurrection Day in the New Testament—or from the Feast of Tabernacles, both of which are God’s feasts. God has never commanded us to celebrate Thanksgiving Day.

    The Church of God only keeps the feasts that the Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong commanded us to keep, the feasts described in the Bible

    Hi Joy :)
    Yes, your right.
    Thanksgiving & Christmas is not in the Bible.

    Leviticus 23 The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed FEASTS, the appointed FEASTS OF THE LORD, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies….The Sabbath…The Passover and Unleavened Bread…Firstfruits…Feast of Weeks…Feast of Trumpets…Day of Atonement…Feast of Tabernacles…”

    We must keep the God’s commandment (The Sabbath, The Passover and Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Feast of Weeks, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles)

    We need to be able to discern the truth from all of the falsehood.
    Even though all of the people living in this age believe that lies and falsehood are the truth, we are the ones who must restore the truth.
