Worshiping Goddess Of Sun

Easter is the worshiping of Ister. The Goddess of the rising sun. The Pagans would climb a mountain and have a sunrise ceremony as she rose from the sea. Decreed Christian by Pagan Emperor Constantine. G-d gave us The Passover which Jesus observed. So which is your holy day and why?

Easter in the Bible is Passover. "Now about that time Herod the king stretched forward hands to vex certain of the church. And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.) And when he had apprehended, he put him in prison and delivered to four quaterions of soldiers to keep him, intending after Easter to bring him forward to the people." Act.12:1-4.

\\You know that there is no command, or example in the bible to set aside any day to remember the resurrection.\\

Nor is there anything that forbids it.

Therefore it is permitted.
---Cluny on 3/15/11


You know that there is no command, or example in the bible to set aside any day to remember the resurrection. So ithad to come from somewhere. the most logical times would be the sunday after passover, or three days after passover.

\\**Many Orthodox monasteries have the chapel lit only by candles and oil lamps** Again this is not for "lighting" but for "effect"\\

Which shows how much you really know about Orthodoxy.

That they are important and/or holy people who were still alive at the time.
---Cluny on 3/15/11


We remember the death and resurrection of Jesus by 1: Baptism, and 2: the lord's supper. Colossians 2:12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with [him] through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
1 Corinthians 11:26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

So surely this easter thing did not come from God, the apostles or the bible. It is soley pagan. Only Catholics have the right to celebrate this, no "protestant" should be caught dead celebrating Easter.

You cannot be protesting the RCC teaching and using them at the same time.
---FRANCIS on 3/15/11




John: There's a saying, i.e., "The foolish try to convince me with his reasons, but the wise man persuades me with my own."

I agree, the Jewish Passover is Jesus in the Old Testament concealed & the Resurrection is Jesus in the New Testament revealed. They are synonymous Christian celebrations. Jesus kept the Passover, with his disciples, at the last supper before he was crucified allowing his body to be broken & his blood to be shed TO WASH AWAY OUR SIN!

Therefore, I personally prefer the term Resurrection Sunday over Easter. RS celebration focuses specifically on Jesus' death, burial & resurrection for the remission of our sin. (Isaiah 53)

\\The fact the easter eggs and easter bunnies are commonly associated with easter should tell you that the origin is NOT from passover. It is from firtility rituals.
---francis on 3/14/11\\

Wrong again,as in everything you say, francis.

Easter bunnies are merely a folk custom. They have nothing to do with the spiritual or liturgical observance of the Pascha of the Lord's Resurrection.

On the other hand, did you know that eggs figure in the Jewish Seder?

Their Christian significance is that they were originally the last thing eaten before the Lenten fast started, were abstained from during Lent, and the first thing eaten on Pascha to break the fast.
---Cluny on 3/15/11


John:

Who worships a day? The Jews did not worship the sabbath. They worshipped ON the Sabbath. Christians don't worship Sunday. They worship ON Sunday. These are very different, much like the difference between eating a fork, and eating WITH a fork.

Why are you surprised that I quoted Paul? Do you have something againt him? If you believe that the writings of Paul should not be considered scripture, that would be a legitimate question, but one best suited for another blog.
---StrongAxe on 3/14/11


When you answer my questions, I'll answer yours.

Fair enough, John?
---Cluny on 3/14/11




1) Those who promote the distortion of truth by pathetically argueing about Sunday/Saturday as if there was a comparision simply refuse to understand.

IT CONCERNS THE COMMANDMENTS/PRECEPTS OF G-D.

Not a day. The issue is NOT Sunday/Saturday or any day..NOOOO the issue is worshipping a Pagan Holyday vs. G-d commanded HolyDay.

The same with the Sabbath. It's NOT the day, but WHO you obey. G-d or Constantine.

2)NOW Cluny, I listed the Passover observances and asked IF you practice this in your Pasache.

OR...

Do you worship your multiple gods(saints)and kiss their images as it gets passed around in your den.

3) SHOCKING! After my posted pre-answer someone stills quotes a Pauline Letter.(StrongAxe)

\\candles still burn in the sanctuary and it's not for the purpose of "lighting"!\\

Many Orthodox monasteries have the chapel lit only by candles or oil lamps.

\\I've never seen a square halo.\\

And your experience is the basis of art history?

I have. You can see square haloes on portraits of Byzantine emperors in churches built during their lifetimes.

\\Unleavened bread is never broken into "round" bits for ingestion!\\

Would it be worth pointing out that in Orthodox churches, the bread consecrated for the Eucharist is square.

Or that in the Latin church, the main host is broken into pieces?
---Cluny on 3/14/11


Part 2.

Things that are round:

Coins
Offering plates (does this mean you're making an offering to the sun in your church?)
Candies
Cans
Dinner plates
Cookware
Pizza
Wheels and tires on cars

The list goes on

None of these things has ANYTHING to do with sun worship.

You're just being paranoid.

The world is a rhomboid without a circumference and nobody knows what this simile means.....

I agree. While to be Easter is a good day to remeber the resurrection of JESUS. If some consider it Holy that is fine. Let each person be convinced in their own mind.

I keep Sabbath because GOD said to in the Ten Commandments. But many who do not will still be in heaven. Some who do will not be for letting hate over rule love.

John, It appears to me, you & some others here, only enjoy yourself when you can stir up strife among believers. GOD looks on the heart!!!!! It's the only way to judge how any individual is worshipping. All this other talk about days, rituals,etc. is just BABEL, nothing more. You've stated, repeatedly, your views on the feasts & holidays. It is my opinion( & I could be alone in this) but I think it's time for you to give this subject a rest & move on to something else. It's not your job to change a person's heart. That's God's job. In my opinion, your attitude toward this subject does more harm than good. I personally cannot see God's leading in this blog's responses. Lot's of confusion & heated attitudes.

Passover and Easter are two words for the exact same thing. Jesus is the Passover Lamb which we remember his sacrifice, and his resurrection every spring, by partaking of his communion service. The very first Passover was instituted on the 1st month, which is April, on the 14th day of the month, which was Sunday April 14. And because of leap year and time change the Passover/Easter is also kept every Sunday April 14, or the 1st Sunday after April 14.
---Eloy on 3/14/11


I think some people may have to face the facts:

Easter is based on worship of the queeen of heaven and not passover.

You may not like it, may not want to admit it, but that cannot change the facts.

Actually i heard another version: Easter would be the celtic or germanic goddes of fruitility and was a lady with the head of a hare. (thats where easter bunny comes from). so when the brits ghot christianised they integrated the easter symbolism eggs and bunnies both symbols of resurection and life toghether with its name in the celebration of passover. despite of this i never searched to change the date of passover since MY HEART celebrates passover.(ps i dont give or share these choclat symbols of eggs and bunnies

1. Actually, heads are round, too. And not all monastic orders wear the western tonsure. Eastern monks certainly don't.

2. Jews wear round skull caps, too. Does that mean they worship the sun?

3. And candles burning prove what? The Church is older than the light bulb.

4. Bread in the middle east is generally round. Ever seen pita?

5. Sunrise services are part of Protestantism, not Pre-reformation churches.

6. There is no evidence of any pagan worship on a regular weekly basis on Sunday or any other weekday.

7, There are square haloes on persons who were alive at the time their portraits were done, and sometimes triangular ones around Jesus.

I observe the Passover.
---Candice on 3/13/11

Passover is the 14 day of the first month: usually the first month starts March 21st /22nd
Leviticus 23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S passover.

Easter is the First Sunday after the first full moon in spring.

Easter and Passover are very different. Passover may fall on any week day, Ester is ALWAYS on a Sunday.
---francis on 3/14/11


JOHN. Definitely, my Holy Day is the Passover. In the Passover, I celebrate the Messiah "YAHUSHUA" (JESUS). He is THE Passover Lamb. He is the One who delivers us from the bondage of Sin into New Life in Heaven. Eternal Death will "passover" those who are covered by His Blood.

Rhonda:

If you refer to day names as forms of worship (i.e. Sunday as worshipping the Sun), EVERY day of the week qualifies, at least in English.
In Germanic languages like English, days are named after pagan gods: Sunday (sun), Monday (moon), Tuesday (Tyr), Wednesday (Woden/Odin), Thursday (Thor), Friday (Frigg or Freya), Saturday (Saturn).
Mostly the same with Latin languages like Spanish: Domingo (God), Lunes (Moon), Martes (Mars), Miercoles (Mercury), Jueves (Jupiter), Viernes (Venus), Sabado (Sabbath)
In Slavinc languages, however, they aren't: Sun=No Work, Mon=After No Work, Tue=?, Wed=Middle, Thu=Fourth, Fri=Fifth, Sat=Sabbath.

This is a matter of language, not religion (and Saturday is no better than Sunday here).
---StrongAxe on 3/14/11


Easter has zero to do with goddess, because there is no such thing as goddess. Easter celebrates Christ's resurection from the dead. "Passover Communion" or "Resurrection Easter" is correctly celebrated on Sunday April 14 or the 1st Sunday immediately after April 14. (ref: Ex.12:1-18+ Lk.22:1-22,47-53+ 24:1-12).

It is not possible to observe a Biblical Passover these days. There is no tabernacle or temple in existence where one could go so as to observe it properly. See Deut.16.

Ishtar was called "the Queen of heaven" Jer.7.18
In our area at Easter they sell "hot cross buns" small round buns with a cross on top. the scripture cited tells of this practice.Baking cakes to the Queen of heaven!

Leftover sun worship (Zoroastrianism) is prevalent throughout Christendom. Sunrise services,monks cut their hair "round" the wafer is round,skull caps are round, candles burn continually in sanctuaries, Icons have "halos" behind each head to indicate "sun" worship!
Their "holy day" is "Sunday"!

Only the Father in Heaven has authority to declare anything holy.

The Father in Heaven declared the 7th day holy

RCC declared suns-day holy

the real question is not which is "YOUR holy day"

the real question is WHO do you SERVE?

If you serve the sun (a form of Satan worship) then you choose a day set by men who bow down to Satan

If you serve the Biblical Christ who sits at the right hand of The Father in Heaven the Divine Creator of ALL then you would choose HIS HOLY 7th day Sabbath

for TRUE Christians who bow down and SERVE HIM we follow Christ and his servants the Apostles in all things - they observed the Sabbath

choices are for those who CHOOSE to disobey

Strongaxe, I think it was understood that men only have 1 birthday. Jesus Christ had 1 birthday as well.

Let me be a little more specific just to avoid an argument.

If March 21 (my birthday) fell on a Sunday does that mean that people shouldnt worship God on that day?

Of course not!

So why try to stop people from worshipping the birth of Jesus Christ on Dec 25th just because some other "god" was thought to have been born on the very day. Its a moronic argument and just another way for the "accuser of the brethren" to disturb the worship that we DO give God.

Your decision to pervert a verse to mean Easter to cover your evil and Comfortable Pagan practices will not convince G-d!

G-d forbid you actually get off the couch and change your ways for HIM!

In spite for ALL your rationalizations.

So explain to the Judge when your time comes why you did not obey His Holy Days, but instead decided to have an Easter Egg hunt.

Easter has zero to do with Ister. Easter is an old word for Spring, and comes from the Lithuanian word "Aistra", meaning "Passion". But Easter is more correctly called Passover or the "Feast of Unleavened Bread", instituted on April 14, 1525 B.C. when Moses was 80 years old. The New Passover, called Communion, was instituted on Thursday April 14, 28 A.D. at 6:00 p.m. when Jesus was 32 years old. Early Sunday morning, three days after Jesus' last Passover supper, is Jesus' Resurrection Day, commonly called Easter.

So what? Sounds like egg nog to me.
---Cluny on 3/10/11
It is not egg nog.

It is a tradition passed down from worship of the queen of heaven as stated in Jeremiah to the celebration of Easter.

Russians make a similar bread called KULICH, which contains cheese, eggs, and other things abstained from during Lent.

BTW, francis, you have not proven the intrinsic connection between Jeremiah's cakes for the queen of heaven and hot cross buns.

And, as I asked, do you actually KNOW anybody who makes cakes to the Queen of heaven? I don't.

Give an approximate number of people you know who knowingly do so.

It is from these that the virgin mary is named: Holy Mary, Mother of God, QUEEN OF HEAVEN

---francis on 3/10/11

No, it from this:

"And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?" (LK 1:43)

Mother of God

"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars"...And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron" (Rev 12:1,5

Queen of Heaven

How many people do you know who actually do this, francis?
Be honest.

\\Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead [their] dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.\\

Be honest.

I know NOBODY who makes "cakes to the queen of heaven," or pours out drink to other deities.

I'll bet that if you were honest, you don't know any, either.

Just another blow at what you think is Roman Catholicism in the Bible.

If you want to look for pagan parallels, you could make a case for Christianity being a form of Mithraism or Osiris worship.
---John.usa on 3/10/11


John is correct. easter is the celebration of a pagan goddess:
Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead [their] dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

Today is many nations with European especially british influence, they still make HOT CROSS BUNS for easter.

Other names for easter include:Jeremiah 7:18 queen of heaven,
Judges 2:13 Ashtaroth.

It is from these that the virgin mary is named: Holy Mary, Mother of God, QUEEN OF HEAVEN

John ... You are wrong.

Easter is when we celebrate the Resurrection of our saviour HJesus Christ.

And all days are holy.
