Truth on Easter

What is the truth?!?
While deep in my thoughts as usual i thought of all those who dont know the truth....as the pagan feast of Easter comes up i cant help but think that i used to chase after the Easter Bunny eating decorated eggs as well...so I hope you all are ready for some enlightenment cuz now is the time to reveal the true origins of easterOrigins of the name "Easter":........


The name "Easter" originated with the names of an ancient Goddess and God. The Venerable Bede, (672-735 CE.) a Christian scholar, first asserted in his book De Ratione Temporum that Easter was named after Eostre (a.k.a. Eastre). She was the Great Mother Goddess of the Saxon people in Northern Europe. Similarly, the "Teutonic dawn goddess of fertility [was] known variously as Ostare, Ostara, Ostern, Eostra, Eostre, Eostur, Eastra, Eastur, Austron and Ausos." 1 Her name was derived from the ancient word for spring: "eastre." Similar Goddesses were known by other names in ancient cultures around the Mediterranean, and were celebrated in the springtime. Some were:
Aphrodite from ancient Cyprus
Ashtoreth from ancient Israel
Astarté from ancient Greece
Demeter from Mycenae
Hathor from ancient Egypt
Ishtar from Assyria
Kali, from India
Ostara a Norse Goddess of fertility.
An alternative explanation has been suggested. The name given by the Frankish church to Jesus' resurrection festival included the Latin word "alba" which means "white." (This was a reference to the white robes that were worn during the festival.) "Alba" also has a second meaning: "sunrise." When the name of the festival was translated into German, the "sunrise" meaning was selected in error. This became "ostern" in German. Ostern has been proposed as the origin of the word "Easter". 2


So once again we can see that the traditions taught by the Catholic church are falshood and are pagan based....oh and heres an extra tid bit about Sunday worship...


There are two popular beliefs about the origin of the English word "Sunday."
It is derived from the name of the Scandinavian sun Goddess Sunna (a.k.a. Sunne, Frau Sonne). 5,6
It is derived from "Sol," the Roman God of the Sun." Their phrase "Dies Solis" means "day of the Sun." The Christian saint Jerome (d. 420) commented "If it is called the day of the sun by the pagans, we willingly accept this name, for on this day the Light of the world arose, on this day the Sun of Justice shone forth." 7


So thats the reality based on the thoughts of man people so willlingly trade the truth for a lie...So I ask you which is better follow the bible or follow what the pagans believe again the choice is up to you....

Right. we should follow God's commanment to get God's blessing. The Bible said,
Mark 7:6-8 『...These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.』
God bless you*^.^*
