  1. Colossians 2;16 says, Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days. As I understand, we as individuals are uniquely put together by God Himself. Our thinking ability, He put there for us to use wisely and maturity with wisdom. I think going to Him in prayer and study He will lead me down His path of righteousness. Acts 5;29 says, We ought to obey God rather than man
