Paul's Guidelines for Pagan Things

Today I received a phone call from someone worried about how to celebrate Easter with his church, considering that some Easter traditions have pagan origins.

I referred him to Paul's three guidelines from First Corinthians 10, which are discussed within an old P'nei Adonai essay about Christmas.

Related is the old P'nei Adonai essay about Purim, since that holiday's traditions are also taken from Zagmuk.

Paul is not nearly so freaked out by traditions with Pagan origins as many people I know.
