Catherine--- What does turning up your music at 8AM have to do with "all the trouble the wicked man gives you all day?"

Oh, well. Celebrate Easter any way you want. We simply disagree.
---Donna66 on 4/18/10


Peter3594 ( & Donna66), in the final analysis, Eph.5:10,11 says, 'Keep on making sure of what is acceptable to the Lord, quit sharing with them in the unfruitful works, of darkness...'

Bible principles must be applied to make wise decisions.

The Israelites at Ex.32:4-10 adopted an Egyptian religious practice and named it 'a feast to the Lord'. But God severely punished them.

Is there any sharing 'between light and darkness, or Christ and Belial'? I believe God and Christ will be upset with those claiming to be Christian, but using paganism in their worship. 2Cor.6:15.

Who else will be the one's saying 'Lord, Lord', and yet Christ will turn to them and say, 'get away from me you workers of lawlessness...' Mt.7:21-23.
---David8318 on 4/18/10


Easter eggs has absolutely nothing to do with JESUS, period!! And, Jesus just said, "turn up your music [8:00 Am] all the trouble the wicked man gives you all day". Bless You Jesus....So, I did. Anyways, not many people are saved, now a days.
---catherine on 4/18/10


David, here I will have to agree with Donna. But here we have a different way of thinking: you [I think] feel that anything that was pagan must be avoided, while I feel that as long as the celebration does not involve something that is banned by God, it may be done, using ways of celebration acceptable to God. Easter is a mixed holiday: the dats is often that same as Ressuraction day (the day after Passover), though some years calenday differences cause problems. But some of the customs are pagan - you are right. I prefer to celebrate the day (Ressurection) and just ignore what is not uplifting to the soul. I think you are stricter in your celebration, and I accept that. But is my way faulty? Can we agree to disagree? As Christians?
---peter3594 on 4/18/10


david8318 -- That's where we disagree. I observe the Lord's supper, too. But I feel free to do whatever the Lord did not condemn...especially if it's done for HIS Glory.
I pay no attention to pagan practices of the past because I'm not a pagan.
---Donna66 on 4/16/10




Donna66, what you now say about the resurrection I would agree with you. The resurrection reveals God's power over death, and yes his resurrection gave his disciples encouragement, and okay I'll go along with you when you say it also proved his ability to purchase eternal life.

But I come back to my previous point and the blog question, being where are the verses giving Christians the mandate to celebrate his resurrection using the pagan festival of Eostre (Easter) and using their pagan emblems of rabbits and eggs?

I agree the resurrection is to be remembered, also his birth, his life, the transfiguration, his miracles, his death etc... But only his death is to be celebrated or memorialised as commanded by Christ. (Lu.22:19)
---David8318 on 4/16/10


David, my apologies if I said too much. I would, hovwever, feel it is at least acceptable to celebrate Christ's ressurection if we strip off things that are not based on the Bible's description of it. Anyway, again, my apologies. I think we have a difference of opinion, but we can live with that. Thanks
---peter3594 on 4/16/10


Peter3594, I believe I'm having a reasonable discussion with Donna66. The fact that I ask questions of her doesn't make me or anyone else here unreasonable. In fact I agree with much of what Donna66 says about the resurrection.

No I don't celebrate birthdays, thanks giving, 4th July, or Sunday service. I don't celebrate any festival or holy-day not commanded by Christ, more so when they're heavily paganised as Eostre (Easter) clearly is.

Christ's life is to be remembered. But Christ commanded his disciples to specifically celebrate his death the night of the Passover, Nisan14.

If Christ didn't command the celebration of his resurrection then Eater is a man-made, false religious event unassociated with true Christianity.
---David8318 on 4/16/10


David, you are clearly overdoing things! Did Christ command you to celebrate your birthday Did he command you to celebrate a Sunday service? Did he command you (if you are American) to celebrate thangsgiving day, or the 4rth of July, etc? Most sensible Christians do. Or do reject the sense of other beleivers? Donne66 is quire reasonable. And I can'd say you are reasonable!
---peter3594 on 4/15/10


David8318 Of course Christ's death is what purchased our Salvation. I KNOW this. But His Resurrection is what proved it to His followers, unstable in their faith. It has been proof for us in succeeding generations.
After the Resurrection, the (11) disciples lost their timidity and served Christ even unto martyrdom.
---Donna66 on 4/15/10




David8313
His resurrection symbolizes his Victory over Death. To me that is a GREAT reason to celebrate.

I don't attend a liturgical church nor a legalistic one. I praise God any time feel like it. I celebrate anything about God that especially touches me. And I've never had God rebuke me for doing so...let alone for doing it on one day instead of another!

Christmas and Easter are festive times for many people, including Christians. I rejoice in His birth at Christmas-time and praise Him for eternal life at Easter-time.
You may see it as a sin, but I see it as part of the freedom I have Christ.
---Donna66 on 4/14/10


Col 2:16 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]:
1 Corinthians 10:29-31 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another [man's] conscience? For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
---MIchael on 4/14/10


Donna66 highlights a fundamental flaw in her reasoning which allows her to celebrate an event not commanded by Christ.

Jesus' resurrection on its own does not prove he purchased eternal life for us.

As the sacrificing of a lamb saved the Israelites in Egypt, the sacrificial death of the 'Lamb of God' saves obedient mankind from inherited sin and death.

Christ purchased eternal life for us through his DEATH.

'Through his DEATH he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil'. Heb.2:14.

On Passover night Nisan14, Christ focused on his death, not his resurrection (Lu.22:19). Any religious festival or celebration not ordained by Jehovah or Christ is false religion.
---David8318 on 4/14/10


What if Jesus Christ came to you in person, and told you that celebrating Easter and Christmas, and anything associated with them was committing IDOLITRY and it hurt His feelings - would you still celebrate them?
---Leslie on 4/13/10


David8318 --I celebrated "Easter" as Resurrection day long before I knew anything about pagans. Pagans having celebrated something at the same season, doesn't affect me at all.

But how you can equate any of Jesus' other miracles with His resurrection?

We inherited DEATH from our ancestor, Adam...but Jesus bought ETERNAL LIFE for us and rose from the grave to prove it. The resurrection is a miracle without compare!

1Cr 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall it be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

This is a miracle that can become personal for us all.
---Donna66 on 4/12/10


What I would like to ask Donna66 is why has she chosen specifically to celebrate the resurrection of Christ? Why, if there is no command to celebrate his resurrection (as Donna66 rightly points out), does she choose to celebrate it?

Why not his miracles or the transfiguration? Why not his ascension? These and other events of Jesus' life are just as important as his resurrection.

Could it perhaps be because of the historical pagan influence that Donna66 celebrates the resurrection, giving it her own title 'newness of life', which is similar in essence to how pagans view this period of year?
---David8318 on 4/12/10

Donna66, I agree with your comments regarding the resurrection of Jesus.

You mention the Passover doesn't anticipate the resurrection, which is true in itself, however part of the Jewish Passover celebration occurred on Nisan 16 (2nd day of Festival of Unfermented Bread) when the high priest waved firstfruits of the barley harvest, the first crop of the year, or the first of the firstfruits of the land. Lev.23:10,11.

It is significant that Jesus was resurrected on this day (Nisan 16), and Paul described Jesus as the 'firstfruits' at 1 Cor.15:20-23. Thus the high priests actions on Nisan 16 prophetically pictured the Messiah's resurrection.

What concerns me (and others) is the mixing of paganism with Christ's resurrection.
---David8318 on 4/11/10


David8318--
As Christians, we not only remember his death as He instructed us, but we also celebrate His RESURRECTION. Jesus gave us no command about celebrating His resurrection, or even that we need do so. But what we are celebrating is "newness of life"

Passover, with its' rich symbolism of being saved because of the blood (that was sprinkled on the door posts of the Hebrews in Egypt) is probably appropriate for Christians, too. But again, it does not anticipate RESURRECTION.

Whatever WE associate with "newness of life", (no matter what symbols pagans might have used in the past)... whatever can remind US of the new life WE have in Christ Jesus, should be appropriate.
---Donna66 on 4/10/10


\\But the point is, how do we remember Chrsit? Is it through the distortion of pagan emblems, using 'Eostre (passion) eggs', or some other pagan Eostre emblem?

Or do we do what Christ commanded on Nisan 14, just after passing the bread & wine, symbols of his sacrifice, on the night prior to his death as recorded at Luke 22:20?
---David8318 on 4/7/10\\

You've asked an either/or question, and the real answer is NEITHER.

This anamnesis that Christ commanded is carried out at least weekly by Orthodox and other churches of Apostolic foundation (not the same thing as the heretical modalist "apostolics"), not just on 14 Nisan.
---Cluny on 4/9/10


Now that being said if in your heart you are celebrating the birth,and resurrection of our lord,then if your children look for eggs ,but are raised under the word,and they help trim a tree,but again are raised under the word,just what is the problem?
*****

there is no problem at all ...non-believers in Christ can follow their traditions of men and call it Christ and do as they please and CLAIM they are "under the word"

there is a difference between CLAIMING "christianity" and LIVING a Christian life

True Christians are called out from the WORLD and its traditions and believe follow and OBEY the WORD of God ...not giving lip service to The Father in Heaven practicing pagan abominations HE HATES

I agree with Cluny on his definition of 'anamnesis'.

When Christ gave the command, 'Keep doing this in remembrance ('anamnesis') of me' (Luke 22:20), it was not simply "in memory of" the Christ. It was as some scholars suggest a bringing of past events to the present.

Christ's birth, life, trail, torture, death, resurrection, ascension etc... are all to be remembered by Christians.

But the point is, how do we remember Chrsit? Is it through the distortion of pagan emblems, using 'Eostre (passion) eggs', or some other pagan Eostre emblem?

Or do we do what Christ commanded on Nisan 14, just after passing the bread & wine, symbols of his sacrifice, on the night prior to his death as recorded at Luke 22:20?
---David8318 on 4/7/10


Jeremiah 10:1-5. Not Easter, Christmas trees but it's not a big leap to other pagan holidays. We are warned over and over not to take heathen customs and turn around and say "I am doing it unto the Lord". Combining the two (Easter Bunny and Resurrection) on the same day sure seems like doing it unto the Lord.

\\Too many Christians take part in these Pagan things because they really don't know where they came from, how they got started, or what they really are about.\\

Even more people think that because there is a superficial resemblance between some pagan customs and cultural seasonal games, that there is an undoubted historical connection.

A lot of those people post here.
---Cluny on 4/5/10


It would be wonderful if Christians would follow the instruction found in Romans 12:1-2.

So many Pagan, traditions, rituals,, celebrations, religions, Etc, Etc, has entered Christianity.

Too many Christians take part in these Pagan things because they really don't know where they came from, how they got started, or what they really are about.

Those who do know about these things, continue to do them because they don't want to offend people by taking a stand and going against Pagan Traditions.

\\The difference is Christ commanded his disciples to 'Keep doing this in remembrance of me', not at his resurrection\\

The Greek word "anamnesis" does not mean a mere mental remembrance. This is possible without complicating it with bread and wine and the logistics of distributing them.

Rather, "anamnesis" means to make actually and really present what is being commemorated.

it is the ENTIRE Christ, incuding death and resurrection, that is "anamnesized" in the Eucharist.
---Cluny on 4/4/10


Christ's death and resurrection are just as important as eachother. They are events essential for salvation.

The difference is Christ commanded his disciples to 'Keep doing this in remembrance of me', not at his resurrection, but after celebrating the Passover on Nissan 14, just after passing the bread & wine the night prior to but on the same day as his death. Luke 22:19.

Notice in the scriptures cited by Cluny there is no mention of 'eggs' or 'rabbits'. You need to go to paganism if you want them as religious emblems.

Christ the 'Passover Lamb' has reconciled us with God because of his death. Imitating his life of faithfulness- avoiding paganism, a 'leaven of wickedness'- will result in life. 1 Cor.5:7,8.

\\He now has again reconciled by means of that ones fleshly body through his DEATH', Col.1:22.

'Through his DEATH he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil'. Heb.2:14.\\

So quoth David.

Are these verses in his Bible?

1 Corinthians 15:14
And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

Romans 5:10
For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

Revelation 1:18
I am he that liveth, and was dead, and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen, and have the keys of hell and of death.

I can go on, but you get the idea.
---Cluny on 4/3/10


The whole purpose of the Passover was not to enact some kind of magic ritual to invoke some kind of divine power, but rather to as an aid to allow succeeding generations to REMEMBER the exodus from Egypt. As such, the tradition for what is being done is constantly evolving (Just look at the variety of different Passover Seder books that are available). What is important is NOT the exact details involved, but rather the fact that the details help people remember.

The Last Supper was the same way - Jesus said "do this IN MEMORY of me". Again, it is not some kind of "magic" ritual, but a vital memory aid. The exact details are less important than Who they are helping us remember.
---StrongAxe on 4/3/10


You've made a good point, Donna66.

The Jewish Passover changed considerably and evolved from the instructions God gave to Moses about how it was to be observed.

In Exodus, the Hebrews were told to eat it standing and in haste.

But in the New Testament (and to this day), the Seder is a leisurely festive meal, with at least the head of the family reclining. Jesus and His disciples followed this practice.

If there was so much grace about changing Pesach's observance during the time of shadow and symbol, is there LESS grace for Christians to change its date since we live in the time of fulfillment?
---Cluny on 4/3/10

Cluny is wrong in his thinking, which is heavily paganised.

"I celebrate the fulfillment--the Pascha of the Resurrection of Christ." Cluny4/1/10.

Pascha is not the Resurrection of Christ. Pascha is the Passover, which pictured the death of the Messiah, not his resurrection. The Messiah's death brings release from condemnation to sin.

'He now has again reconciled by means of that ones fleshly body through his DEATH', Col.1:22.

'Through his DEATH he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil'. Heb.2:14.

\\Pascha (Latin- 'passover') and Easter can never coincide.\\

Yes, they do. They do this year and next year.- Cluny 3/31/10.

The Jewish Passover, Nissan 14 began sundown on 3/30/10 this year.

Pascha or Passover is the Jewish event to celebrate/memorialise the night of the Israelite liberation from Egyptian bondage- 1513BCE. When the angel of death passed over and put to death every 1st born male offspring.

Easter is not Passover but the Babylonian pseudo god Astarte, known as Ishtar. From Astarte the word Asterix is derived, which pagans painted on buns, creating the 'hot cross bun'. (Origins of the 'Cross' used by Christendom)

Passover and Easter are related only in the paganised minds of false Christians.

Children don't have to very old before they figure out that Mickey Mouse is not real, even if they see him him wandering Disneyworld. Eventually they realize that Superman is a "story" character, not a real one. Santa and the Easter Bunny are the same. School age children make the distinction very quickly if you just tell them.

I've never met an adult who distrusts their parents because they "lied" to them about Santa and the Easter Bunny! Nor are these characters any more "evil" than Mickey Mouse. They exist just for fun.

This an entirely separate matter than WHY we celebrate Christmas and Easter. If you are serious about your worship, your children will readily see the difference.

---Cluny on 3/31/10


With regards to what Cluny and Eloy said, it is important that parents teach their children to distinguish between fantasy and reality. At very early ages, children are incapable of making the distinction, but they learn this as they grow up, and it's important that their parents help them to do so, rather than hiding behind denial when the kids ask if Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are real.

Otherwise, when the kids eventually learn that their parents lied to them about the invisible Santa Claus and invisible Easter Bunny, you can't blame them from assuming that their parents lied to them about the invisible Jesus as well, and becoming cynical about faith altogether.
---StrongAxe on 3/30/10


Cluny, A-men. Hyperbolic stories told to entertain and humor children, should not be confused with reality. It is difficult for some people to rightly classify information or to discern between real historical record and unreal fiction, and instead they incorrectly group all information they hear and read into one category of the real historical gospel. Easter rabbits are not related to the Eastern Rabbi Jesus Christ, nor do rabbits lay eggs.

Well, those hidden eggs represent lost souls hidden out in this world that is so cold. Jesus says, "'And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.'" (Matthew 24:12) So many people have allowed evil in this world to have power over them to make them go cold. "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." (Romans 12:21) So, those poor little eggies of the fornicating rabbit need someone to rescue them and warm them in God's love so they can hatch, and have a resurrection into the sunshine and fresh air of God's love.

I think people take the whole "pagan origins" idea way too seriously, especially with regards to names. There are many cases in the Bible where things have "pagan origins" (in particular, with people's names), an there are no negative comments about them.

For example, in the Book of Esther, the two heroes are Esther and Mordecai - whose names come from pagan gods Ishtar and Marduk. And one of the early Christian leaders was Apollos, from the Greek god Apollo.

What matters is whether something is used for idolatry NOW, not whether something dimly related did so thousands of years ago.

It is the term "Easter" that is pagan, not the use of eggs as Pascha.

The history is mixed, eggs were a Pagan fertility symbol. But were eventually assimilated into Christianity. The Russian Tzar's family had elegant jeweled eggs crafted. Bunnies delivering eggs comes from the Germans in the 16th century CE. As St. Nicholas was to Christmas the Easter Bunny was to Easter. It is a secular cultural tradition, there is no scriptural bases for it. Just thing that some people do.
