can I celebrate my birthday to the deceased
can I celebrate my birthday to the deceased
- gather, keep the main thing so that you do not act sensibly, but wisely
- DEATH - no, and the deceased - why not?
- Just do not have to drink, but just drink tea, remember the good things about it and pray .... about his soul ....
- If a person has died, the memory of him must remain with his relatives and friends. I think there is nothing wrong with the fact that on the birthday of a good man (although he is not alive) they remembered him, honored his MEMORY, with good kind words.
- Of course you can .. because you only say good
- What for? He that will come? You give him presents?
Or just to collect and shake alive? Well, for conscience at least find the days when pobuhat without communication with the deceased.
- Forgive me for having climbed, but the day of his birth is now different ...
- It looks like a "memory day". On this day, relatives visit the grave, prayers are read in the Temples about the soul of the deceased, and candles are lit. It is important for the soul of the deceased that relatives do not forget it there. It is clear that you do not need a booze to your relative. We must get together, remember his good deeds, eat something tasty, in general, remember.
- A good name is better than an expensive suit, and the day of the death of a birthday. It is better to go to the house of weeping for the deceased, rather than go to the house of the feast; for such is the end of every man, and the living will put it to his heart (Ecclesiastes 7: 1,2). It must be accepted that death is the end of every human being.
- an occasion to drink can be any
- Day of the birth of a good person is a holiday. You honor both his life and his importance in your life. And why celebrate the day of death, I do not understand, because in the afterlife I do not believe. The human soul manifests itself during life, and not after death.
- one year two months since I buried my son. He will soon have a birthday. I wanted to know I can come to his grave to bring flowers. how can I show my memory of him?
- Here is Hochma: the birthday of the deceased! And probably a toast like: so we wish eternal rest to the deceased on his birthday? !!
- No. To do this, it is worth reading the Bible.
- I have today also the birthday of the grandfather of the deceased, we usually put a candle, it is possible and not put, in memory. but I am a Jew, but as a Christian? it's good that you remember about it
- Ecclesiastes 9: 5,6,10
The living know that they will die, but the dead do not know anything, and there is no more reward for them, because the memory of them is oblivious. 6 Their love has disappeared, and hatred, and jealousy, and forever there will be no share for them in what is done under the sun.
10Vs what your hand can do, do it by doing your best, because in the place where you go, there is no work, no plans, no knowledge, no wisdom.
The one who died to him anyway.
And nothing has been written about the birthday in the Bible, only that on one of these holidays Ivan the Baptist was cut off his head.
Birthday celebrations as they arose?
To celebrate the anniversary of the birth, despite the fact that this was the custom of the ancient peoples, Christians initially treated with disapproval, notes William S. Walsh in his book Curiosities of Popular Customs. Then the historian Walsh cites a quote from the early Christian writings on this topic: In the sermon on Levit xii XUMX Origen assures his listeners that there is not one saint who ever held a feast or a big dinner on his birthday, or who would rejoice the birthday of his son or his daughter. But sinners rejoice and have fun on such days.
Where did the early Christians' dislike of birthdays come from? Partly from the Jews. The Bible does not mention the celebration of the birthday among the Jews themselves, MClintock and Strongs emphasizes Cyclop # 230; dia. Then in this work it is said: In fact, at least the later Jews considered birthday celebrations as part of idolatry.
Of course, early Christians had their own reasons not to celebrate birthdays. In the time between birthdays and pagan religion there was a close relationship
First, with spiritism.
Another reason why early Christians avoided birthday celebrations was the connection with astrology.
- you do not congratulate him, you just got together on that day, I think there's nothing wrong with that
- Remembering the days in which they gathered together and remembering the person who gathered you all together, you give him a tribute of memory.
This is not the same birthday, but the birthday of a man for the birth of which you are grateful to the Lord.
If a person left a good memory of himself, it means life lived for nothing, this is in itself a testimony of the living about the dead.
Is not the birth of the Mother of Jesus Christ celebrated?
but She died;
and is not there a commemorative birthday of the Forerunner in the church?
Is not the celebration of the birth of our Lord? and then His bright resurrection?
It is clear that Their Birth is significant for all of humanity. .
but also the fact that a memorable memory
the birth of a good man, uniting his family and after death, can not be a sin.
