Acts 2:1-4; “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

What’s the cost of observing Pentecost?

Imagine being a self-proclaimed Christian, and yet not knowing about most of the Jewish holidays, or the Christian holidays/observances listed in the Bible.

That scenario is reality for the majority of Mormons who’ve been strictly taught what they must do to be saved, and what church authorized books they can read.

I grew up in Utah Mormonism totally clueless about biblical events such as Good Friday, Pentecost, Passover, etc. Sadly, given my experience, I wasn’t alone.

I had never learned how God had mandated His chosen people, the Israelites, to attend seven feasts and festivals at specific times throughout the year, let alone knowing that each carried a specific meaning.

This is the crux of the many problems Mormon people face each day. They’re kept so busy with a laundry list of meaningless man-made rules, it leaves little time in the day to think of other things.

In short, those busy things serve as the answer to the title of our article today.

Masonic symbols 2010 First Presidency Christmas Devotional, ‘Seeing Christmas through New Eyes,’ December 2010; “The more commercialized and busy the Christmas season becomes, the easier it is for the sublime message of the Savior’s life to get lost along the way. If we notice that planning for parties and scrambling for presents begin to detract from the peaceable message of Jesus Christ and distance us from the gospel He preached, let us take a step back, slow down a little, and reconsider what matters most.” — Dieter F. Uchtdorf [emp. mine]
