Anonymous asked: Heyy! Okay so, Lent started today, & i'm not Catholic, but a Christian so i'm not doing Lent. But then i see my Christian friends talking about doing Lent, so i got confused. Am i wrong for not doing it? Or are they wrong for doing it? Or is neither of us wrong? Because I know you're not supposed to advertise your fasting, and I feel like that's what they're doing with Lent. But i still don't know. So if you could please help and answer this question, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thanks(:
Lent isn’t something God commanded us to do. So, you are no where in the wrong or committing sin if you don’t participate in it.
We are to build a relationship with Christ every single day not just during the Lent Season.
Also, not all Christians partake in Lent, only 3 christian denominations do and they are: Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians and Anglicans.
God bless :)
