The Church of God has always had professional Juadaizers in its midst trying to prove that every single law in the Bible was a requirement of a Christian who follows the new covenant. They do everything their power to bastardize the new covenant into a major law keeping issue.
Today the Chief Judaizer of the Churches of God had this little tid-bit about birthday candles on birthday cakes.
Did you know that when you light a birthday candle and blow it out that you are sending smoke up do glorify Satan?
1:8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, 1:9 According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. 1:10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.
The ascending smoke of the incense as a type of the prayers of God’s people ascending to Heaven.
The pagans also believe that the smoke of their sacred fires ascend to their god; the birthday candle comes from paganism where the day of birth is considered auspicious for making a wish which will ascend to the sun god [Satan] in the smoke of the birthday candle.
