Reasons Christians Should Flee Its Observance

Description: (hide)

Valentine's Day dates back to the Roman fertility rite and ritual honoring Lupercus, the god of the hunt and fertility, commemorating a time young men would whip women with goat thongs to improve their fertility. Many biblical injunctions including I Peter 4:1-3 warn against participating in these rank pagan rituals. By encouraging pairing off at a premature age, Valentine's Day proves spiritually dangerous to young people getting them romantically involved before they are able to deal with the consequences. Valentine's Day is not about love, but lust and licentiousness.
