Truth is a necessary component of real understanding. If we always look to truth in our studies and give up traditions when they prove contrary to truth we will be much the better for it. The Messiah said he was the Way, the Truth, and the Life. So accepting truth as a normal way of our study we will be growing closer to the Messiah and what he was about.
When you look at the information at the link below ask yourself, would our Messiah have celebrated this day knowing it’s history.
