Council of Nicea (circa 326 CE), the Roman Church

during the

Council of Nicea (circa 326 CE), the Roman Church

decided that Easter was to be celebrated throughout

the world on the Sunday that followed the 14

th day of

the ‘paschal moon.’ However, the moon was to be

considered ‘paschal’ only if the 14

th day of the moon fell

after the Spring Equinox, despite the fact that the

Equinox is never mentioned in Scripture. This was

clearly an example of YHWH’s people choosing to

worship Him on days of their own devising.

In the language of Scripture, the proof of belief is

obedience. YHWH knows we believe in Him when we

do what He commands. However, if we decide to keep

days of worship that are determined by observing the

sun, the moon, the stars and the host of the heavens,

then YHWH considers that we are worshipping (or

‘serving’) the sun, the moon, the stars and the host of

the heavens. YHWH warns us very sternly against

this, and tells us that this is the practice that He has

given to all the other nations of the world.

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 4:19

19 “And take heed, lest you lift your

eyes to heaven, and when you see the

sun, the moon, and the stars, all the

host of heaven, you feel driven to

worship them and serve them, which

YHWH your Elohim has given to all the

peoples under the whole heaven as a

heritage.”
