Father forgive them; for they know not what they do

St. Valentines day formally "the festival of Lupercalia" is a pagan festival honoring Juno, the Roman goddess of women and marriage, and Pan, the god of nature .

yet the ignorant masses partake to rituals honoring these pagan gods unknowingly

Hosea 4:6
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

John 8:32
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

Yes,let's talk about the keg den and what the Bible says...

. Romans 14:21 - "It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to "to drink wine, nor anything whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak."

2. Proverbs 20:1 - "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise."

3. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor DRUNKARDS, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."

4. Romans 13:13 - "Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting (drunken partying) and drunkenness (general drunken-ness)..."

5. Ephesians 5:18 -- "And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;"

Now you know...

John 8:32

Alcohol just like anything else is good until abused
case in point
Jesus turned water to wine
John 2:1-11
2 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:

2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.

4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

Alcohol is also very important in Christianity as it used to signify the blood of Christ as used during sacrament and the last supper

Matthew 26:26-28
26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

27 And he took the wine, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Depends with your beliefs
I guess its okay for Pagans - but not for me
Who died and made you judge of other people's cultural & religious beliefs and practises. You can not judge a people based on you own standards and yet they do not subscribe to those standards.

From where I stand,that being hypocritical. Which is a sin if I have read your book correctly.

What people don't know is that good intentions don't justify evil. Most are celebrating with very good intentions, bit the fact is that they are observing a pagan festival. And this applies for Christmas and Easter as well.

I'm not sure what I am, but I do know if your deeds do not match your beliefs then one is subject to their ego.

If one isn't keen enough to see the havoc your ego wrecks in your life, no volumes of religious manuscripts will aide you.
