Friday is always a good day cos its the beginning of the weekend but this 3/4/15 is even special because its the day we remember the ultimate sacrifice dat brought man back to God after the fall of adam and eve.

But eating of meat has become a bone of contention amongst many, some say its abominable because they see it as eating the flesh of Jesus while others think otherwise. What is your view on this?

Have your say!

Strictly for christians!!

To me, it is not just superstitious but may be ungodly to make that a doctrine...where can we find that in the bible?
that is purely the doctrine of men.

It's a meaningless Christian tradition/ritual

You saw how little tolerance Jesus had for traditions of men?

Its all about myth. The coming generations would still carve out their own doctrine, and it would be widely accepted by many. That's what keep the universe moving. "CHANGE" be it neccesary or not.

..its never biblical. Its just a doctrine that's bn practised by some orthodox churches like the catholic.. To me I don't see anything wrong with it but a sign of reverence to the son of God on His crucifixion.

My annoyance is that i have asked most of them(catholics and baptics members) around me the reason why they dnt eat meat on Good friday. None of them gave me a good reason for that, they are just doing that to fulfil or rightiousness. They are just following church doctrine.

smh. this easter period is a period where we should all remember what Christ has done for us on the cross. Christians should focus solely on HIM during this period. Easter isnt some holiday for frolicking, partying, screaming, or getting wild and high or asking stupid questions.

Concerning Good Friday, its not mentioned we should observe it, but if you wanna do, its still OK. just let your focus be on HIM who has redeemed us and not whether you should eat meat or not. SHALOM!!

Everyone got their beliefs and values. We "Catholics" believe that eating meat on a good friday, is like eating the flesh of christ, and inflicting more pain to him, so it's neither of that!!
