What does Yahweh think about human beings using a pagan festival to honor the Resurrection of Messiah?

Deuteronomy 12: 29-32

29 When Yahweh your G-d shall cut off the nations from before you, where you go in to dispossess them, and you dispossess them, and dwell in their land;

30 take heed to yourself that you not be ensnared to follow them, after that they are destroyed from before you; and that you not inquire after their gods, saying, How do these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.

31 You shall not do so to Yahweh your Yahweh: for every abomination to Yahweh, which he hates, have they done to their gods; for even their sons and their daughters do they burn in the fire to their gods.

32 Whatever thing I command you, that shall you observe to do: you shall not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

 

This Roman Diana . . .

is known as "Diana Lucifera". Her grace, strength and power reflect the most consistent attributes of all Diana images. This is the Diana that was known in The British Isles.
