Fasting and The Day of AtonementS

Fasting and The Day of AtonementS

Fasting on The Day of Atonement: Is it a command of Torah, or scripture? Or is it simply another man made tradition? Is there more than meets the eye?

I have personally fasted on this holy day. Many people do. It is what I learned from what someone else told me. Didn't give it a thought until about a year ago when I ran across a very clear study on the subject, while participating in a discussion on the subject.

"On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonements; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall humble your souls and present an offering by fire to IAUA." Lev 23:27

Tuesday evening at sunset, September 25, 2012, begins the 24 hours period of The Day of Atonements. On that special day, a most important feast, or appointed time, of IAUA, many people around the world will be fasting. That is, not eating for the entire day, or 24 hour period. Is this a command of scripture? Are these the instructions given to us by IAUA?

I'd like to share with you the study I discovered not too long ago, that may shed some different light on the subject. I'd invite you to read and study it for yourself, and see what you think. You may come away with a different conclusion.

Please feel free to share your thoughts afterward.

Here's the link to the study:
