The Truth Behind

St. Valentine's Day





St. Valentine's Day is the world's ôholiday of love.ö Since the Bible states that God is love (I John 4:8, 16), does He approve of the celebration of this day? Does He want His peopleŚtrue ChristiansŚpartaking of the candy and cards, or any customs associated with this day?



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



When God says He wants you to live life abundantly (John 10:10), does that include celebrating a festive, seemingly harmless holiday like Valentine's Day? The God who gives us everythingŚlife, food, drink, the ability to think for ourselves, etc.Śsurely approves of St. Valentine's Day, the holiday for lovers to exchange giftsŚright?



Do not be so certain. Do not assume anything. Do not even take this article's word for it. Go to history books and encyclopedias. Go to the Bible. Then you will know the real truth behind St. Valentine's Day. And you will know what God expects you to do about it!



Valentine's Past



Like Christmas, Easter, Halloween, New Year's and other holidays of this world, St. Valentine's Day is another attempt to ôwhitewashö perverted customs and observances of pagan gods and idols by ôChristianizingö them.



As innocent and harmless as St. Valentine's Day may appear, its traditions and customs originate from two of the most sexually perverted pagan festivals of ancient history: Lupercalia and the feast day of Juno Februata.



Celebrated on February 15, Lupercalia (known as the ôfestival of sexual licenseö) was held by the ancient Romans in honor of Lupercus, god of fertility and husbandry, protector of herds and crops, and a mighty hunterŚespecially of wolves. The Romans believed that Lupercus would protect Rome from roving bands of wolves, which devoured livestock and people.



Assisted by Vestal Virgins, the Luperci (male priests) conducted purification rites by sacrificing goats and a dog in the Lupercal cave on Palatine Hill, where the Romans believed the twins Romulus and Remus had been sheltered and nursed by a she-wolf before they eventually founded Rome. Clothed in loincloths made from sacrificed goats and smeared in their blood, the Luperci would run about Rome, striking women with februa, thongs made from skins of the sacrificed goats. The Luperci believed that the floggings purified women and guaranteed their fertility and ease of childbirth. February derives from februa or ômeans of purification.ö



To the Romans, February was also sacred to Juno Februata, the goddess of febris (ôfeverö) of love, and of women and marriage. On February 14, billets (small pieces of paper, each of which had the name of a teenage girl written on it) were put into a container. Teenage boys would then choose one billet at random. The boy and the girl whose name was drawn would become a ôcouple,ö joining in erotic games at feasts and parties celebrated throughout Rome. After the festival, they would remain sexual partners for the rest of the year. This custom was observed in the Roman Empire for centuries.
