Is it important / correct to observe lenten days?
It would be great if your Church tradition observes them, for you to join them. But if the local church you attend does not observe lenten days then you are under no obligation to observe them.
I strongly believe that such issues are those of personal conviction where there is a certain liberty that can be exercised for those who choose not to observe them. Sort of the Romans 14 case about observence of certain days. And the Scripture says, ‘Let each be fully convinced in his own mind…’ he that eats, should not judge he that does not eat, and the reverse also holds true.
Thank you. That really explains.
