Below is a link to a study I published last year and have updated with some new information. I encourage everyone to do their work of reading Scripture and to investigate and prove the truth of it because there is so much deception in the world today. We have many pagan ways included in our worship of our ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD]. HE was very clear how pagan ways were not HIS ways and that they separated HIM from HIS people [read about the HIS relationship with the Israelites]. Love HIM enough to separate yourselves from the ways of men and family traditions if they are not HIS ways – FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT are worth it!!!
