Remember the early church was all Jewish for several years!
It would have been wrong for them to try and force Gentile Christians to observe those holidays since they were for Israelites.
Are you serious?
THEY ARE GODS FEASTS not the Israelites. (or the jews as you put it) (BTW not all Israelites are jews)
If they were no longer to keep Gods Holy Days( not the jews) This would have been the perfect time to give a sermon on not no longer keeping them wouldn't it?
But oh wait, no sermon was EVER given, no command was EVER recorded in the new test was it?
In fact read on a few chapters in acts and you will see the early church keeping the other Holy Days of God.....Strange huh?
Man cannot change God, for God to change there has to be a command given, also Jesus kept all the Holy Days ( since He gave them) and Paul stated he did everything Jesus did. If Paul didn't I wouldn't believe a word he said!
