[Our note: May nobody read the following article, may they just leave "Valentine's Day" alone. These are unclean things. We are to be simple concerning evil. This article in here because there are professed Christians that partake of the unclean things [television, newspapers, Valentines, Halloween, Christmas/Santa Claus, Easter, etc.] When a person leaves worldly things like these, those things become like a blur. We know that they exist but they are not part of our daily lives. February 14 can come and go without even mentally knowing "Valentine's Day" has occurred.]
Be Nobody's Valentine
Each year on February 14th countless millions of people celebrate a day known as "St. Valentine's Day." Millions of heart-shaped cards and boxes of chocolates are given as gifts, and even churches have Valentine parties on this so-called "Day of Love." In schools, from pre-school and kindergarten on up, children draw names from a box and exchange heart-shapes notes which "pair off" the children and is said to be "all in fun." People of all ages get into the act, and the words that are heard everywhere on that day are, "Be My Valentine."
The sad fact is that most people never question the origin of the customs that they involve themselves with. Most people do not ask questions but do what everybody else does, never stopping to consider how the Almighty God of Heaven feels about their activities. When we consider that Valentine's Day is a day of preoccupation with the heart, it is essential that we listen to the following words spoken by the Almighty, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his wages, and according to the fruit of his doings." Jeremiah 17:9-10
Christians should be known by their discernment and should be asking questions regarding Valentine's Day. What is the origin of this unusual day? Why is there a preoccupation with the color red? Where did the heart shape come from, and what does it mean? These and other questions will now be answered, as we examine the roots and pagan origin of this popular day.
[Much of this article has been deleted. It contended that Valentine's had roots of whoredom and fornication. It was a worshipping of devils (the things that the Gentiles sacrifice to are devils--I am a Gentile but I have been born again and now I am a part of the Israel of God because I believe in the blood of Jesus. Abraham is the father of many nations (see Genesis 12 and Romans 4).]
When the Gnostic Catholic Church began to get a foothold in Rome around the 3rd century A.D., they became known as Valentinians. The Catholic Valentinians retained [deleted. blasphemy and wickedness]
As time went on, the Orthodox Church suppressed the Gnostic Catholics and manufactured "St. Valentine", whose day continues to be celebrated in these modern times.It should be without saying that the Christians should avoid Valentine's Day like a plague. In God's eyes, it is still "Lupercalia", the "Day Of The Wolf." Men become wolves, as they carry on the Satanic rituals of fornication, which means sexual intercourse without marriage. We have heard of the "wolf whistle", and we all know that wolves do not whistle. It is lustful men and women, who carry on Satan's blasphemy to this very day.
In conclusion, we must ask ourselves, "Should a true Christian be associated in any way with this celebration of evil roots? Should we be doing what the heathen have done for so many years and try to justify it as love?" Romans 12:2 answers this very well, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mindů"
