The most serious impediment to understanding Bible I observe in Christians is seeing it as a book for different culture. Bible is not a book about jewish culture or mentality. When they were leaving Egypt, they did not have these views. Lord planted through His word what He wants to see.

feministic hysteria in western world leads to psychological castration of men. More and more we see men brainwashed against traditional patriarchal family (and society). The further this world diverges from God's design of family, the stronger it must be held by believers. The split, once negligible, grows into such a huge chasm, that those standing on opposite sides will see each other as alien civilizations.

Ecclesiastes is the best book about midlife crisis

The cognitive dissonance of most Christians: the Bible tells one thing, and you understand it is correct. But the church practices it in a different way, and you think it is also ok. Now, you try to connect those two things and prove to yourself that they don't contradict... But they do! The way you solve this conflict demonstrates who is really your God

The rule of every speech is: "Have what to tell, and tell it well". In case of sermon, "what to tell" can be received only from God. The paradox of the most sermons I hear is that professional ministers get very advanced at "tell it well" part; they studied it in their college and have been practicing it for years. They can be artistic, adding jokes, keeping eye contact, using interaction, bringing props... in all that, people forget that the most important, the part number one is missing! Ask your church fellows what they have learned from the last several sermons. Not the wrapper, but the content? Probably, you will hear the same basic things from week to week, from month to month.. How is it possible? Did God finish revealing His word to the church? Does not He have anything to tell? Or, probably, "professional sermon preparation" has nothing to do with hearing and sharing God's word? It is not taught in colleges. It does not require diplomas. The simplicity of sermon is "receive from God what He wants to tell, and tell it to others"; and, if you can, tell it well.

Rosh haShanah is very much like Easter - popular religiously observed Babylonian heritage which, because of calendar proximity, replaced 1 of 12 Lord's Feasts mentioned in Torah (Leviticus 23). Babylonian new year was in the beginning of autumn, and jews started to mix pagan celebration with sacred Yom Teruah. The same way, much later, another pagan holiday, Easter, will replace Pesach. And weekly celebration of sunday will replace Shabbat. Substituting holidays is one of points to change worship system (Daniel 7:25).
And what about new year? Well, according to Exodus 12:2 it is 2 weeks before Pesach. If you value Torah more than human traditions, of course.

Surrogate worship can be worse than none, for it gives soothing illusion of having done something meaningful.

This weekend, you can notice how most Christians make 6 errors in the word Pesakh(Passover), and are 6 days late with it. In addition, many confuse rabbit for lamb and eggs for matzot.
