Letter to the Editor
In a few weeks it will be the days of Passover when Jesus Christ actually died and rose again exactly on the feast of First Fruit.
There is a story in the Bible that tells us that Adam and Eve who had two sons, Cain and Able. Cain offered up a sacrifice to God of his best. Able also offered up a sacrifice of what God wanted in an offering. God accepted the sacrifice from Able. He did not accept Cain offering even though he did it with all his heart.
Most of you celebrated “Easter.” Where did that feast come from?
The name Easter comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring that is the goddess Astarte who is connected to fertility. The rabbit eggs represent the goddess of fertility Isis or Astarte. Sunrise services are to the sun god Re or Amun-Re.
Why do we put our brain on the shelf during this celebration? Have you ever seen a rabbit lay an egg and are we teaching our children to lie? How do you get three days and three nights from Friday to Sunday? Why do we continue to celebrate this pagan feast? It is because of peer pressure and our pastors celebrate it.
Will God accept our offering? When we honor these pagan gods knowingly or unknowingly that is what we are doing and it is idolatry. We will have to give an account for our action when we stand before God. Think for yourself. Passover was established by God but Easter was a man-made feast to compromise God’s feast day.
