Lent season will soon begin. Its practice will be observed within Christianity, most dominantly by people from the Catholic Church. I have grown up in both a part of the country and state where Catholicism is dominant among many people of faith. However, throughout my many years of observing them, I have encountered many individuals who practiced Lent without any knowledge of its attributes' connection with God's Word. At the personal level, I have worked with them, by guiding them through the scriptures, and bringing a form of clarification to many of their questions and confusions on the subject matter.
This year, through a discussion and discourse with a friend, I have decided to write a short series that addresses several attributes that pertain to Lent and compare them with what is said in God's Word. Although the research has been performed in-depth, it is presented in manner that is concise and with scripture references in order to present the main points of the subject matter at hand. It is my hope that this work will help people see the truth that lies in God's Word, and draw them closer to obtaining or maintaining a healthy relationship with Jesus.
