The only part that matters to me is “Jer 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen” This being said to pre-christian Jews, who were acting under totally different operating instructions from God and for whom many of the laws were geared toward separating them apart and making them distinct from other cultures in order to protect them from losing who they were as a people. Later Christians were ordered to go out and teach the gentiles however. Thus new Christians were often converted heathens themselves, making it nigh impossible for them to unlearn everything they grew up with. The very days of the week are named after pagan dieties. Its impossible NOT to learn pagan ways because Christianity is only a small fraction of our world history and culture, and none of us can be totally defined as being solely Christian with no pagan influence. Thus the question is do we take the everyday symbols found in life and use them towards Christianity, or do we distain everything as evil and find fault in God's creation as a whole?
