So remember it's Have a Happy Resurrection Day!
Let no man be deceived.
What is Easter?
Easter, is a day that was started, as a pagan holiday.
It was a day started, in reference to the aligning of the moon.
The term Easter does not come from the Bible,
but rather from the name of an ancient goddess of spring.
The name Easter comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon goddes of spring.
Despite having it's roots in paganism, Easter was a pagan festival that professing Christian leaders came to embrace as their own.
Christian religious leaders believed the only way they could persuade the pagan world to accept Christianity was by adopting many of the rituals these new "converts" held dear.
Is Easter Christian? The simple answer is "no."
Despite all it's beauty and pageantry, Easter is pagan to the core.
It's symbols and traditions do not honor Christ or His sacrifice.
On the contrary, they actually mock it.
It is important to understand that nowhere in the New Testamant do we find God's Church celebrating Easter.
Man's attempt to replace God's festivals and Holy Days with customs that come directly from the pagan world represents an act of arrogance.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Gal. 6:7)
Christians all over the world,
celebrate this day in the wrong spirit.
We as christians, are to celebrate Resurrection day, not Easter.
This is the day set aside to celebrate the rising of our Lord,
and saviour Jesus the Christ of Nazereth.

We need to stop teaching our kids about a bunny,
hopping from place to place bringing candy, and eggs.
it is good to have fun with our children, but, we shouldn't lie to them.
We teach our children not to lie to us,
so in turn we shouldn't lie to them.

We need to stop going out and spending alot of money on clothes, for the wrong reasons.
People go and get outfits, to be seen and look cute.
The clothes will be bought, for one day in the year,
some people will not even put that outfit on ever again.
Some people go to church, just to be seen,
and to say, "I went to church on Easter.
This is not what the day is all about.

What is Resurrection day?

Resurrection Day, is a time to celebrate and praise God for the return of Jesus,
from the grave. It is a time to give thanks for his life,
as well as our new lives in him.
Let's take our minds off Easter,
and put it back on what the day really means to Christians all over the world.
People may get mad at me, but I really don't care.
It is time to tell the truth, the whole truth,
and nothing but the truth.

The Bible says, cry loud, and spare not.
Lift up your voice like a trumpet.
If we are going to live for God, then let's be for real,
and live 100 percent for him.
For 99 and one half won't do.

May God bless and keep you in this holy season.
May I say, to you, happy, and blessed, Resurrection day.
Here are a few reasons to celebrate resurrection day.

Matthews 28:5-7.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye:
for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead;
and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
John 3: 16-17.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved.
Romans 10:6-9.
6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise,
Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep?
(that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth,
and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.
> Remember, it's all about Jesus, the Christ of Nazereth.
Celebrating is fine,
but remember, Jesus is the reason for the resurrection day season.
God bless you, and may Heaven smile upon you.

    You come out here demeaning Christianity and hurl insults at me, then whine when I expose your ignorance and kick your ass on the merits every time.

    A snotty Atheist brat like you blocking me is irrelevant. Trust me, I learn absolutely nothing from you and your inflated self-opinion is meaningless to me. You hate me because I consistently embarrass you and your nitwit Atheist pals in debate. None of you can answer my questions or defeat my arguments - and I eradicate all of your BS.

    Of course blocking me is easier than losing every point of every debate. I understand your problem

    My children were raised to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, on Easter Sunday. They grew up knowing the reason for the season's. My children and now Grandchildren have fun searching for eggs anticipating the arrival of the Easter bunny. They know how to differentiate between the two.

    There is also the Chinese tradition of giving painted eggs in celebration of spring.

    "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world."

    Nothing surprising about this; Christians stole nearly everything from pagan religions, INCLUDING the resurrection story.

    Bunny and egg symbolism is associated with Easter because those ancient pagan spring festivals were all about FERTILITY! Now that's something to celebrate, in my opinion! ;-D

    IF this is the truth, I did not know it. However, I see a lot of "We need to..." stuff, and, true or not "WE" do not "need to" do anything differently, You believe in.... whatever, do whatever YOU want. WE, need to do as we please.

    Sri Prrahuba of the Krishna faith said something similar when asked what he thought of the christian religion.
    He said " Christianinty is a fine religion; to bad noone PRACTICES it."

    If any christians are confused or angered by that here is a link to a movie made by a christian that explains it ' Lord save us from your followers.'

    Many pagan holidays were used as a basis for Christian holy days. It makes total sense to me that when you set out to convert people to your religion/philosophy/ideology you use something with which they are familiar. No harm, no foul in the creation of holy days from a pagan beginning. It's how your life is lived within the tenets of the conversion which is the whole point.

    LOL. Did you know football came from men killing themselves for sport in Rome? But nobody actually thinks of it that way or cares because it is football. Nobody with a brain actually celebrates Easter because of witchcraft. He is risen. Let's call it, Jesus' resurrection day!!

    Yes I do know the truth. Easter is a Pagan holiday even down the painting of the eggs that were the symbol of birth and the new spring. It comes after the Pagan new year which is April 1st. This is called April fools day because when the Christians changed their calendar to January 1st they ridiculed anyone who did not and thus April fools day was born.
