THE PAGAN FESTIVAL OF EASTER
Most Christians (so-called as well as many genuine ones) will be celebrating Easter over the next few days. Do you realize this is a pagan festival?
We’ve got nothing against anybody having special festivals. The Bible says all days are the same, so a festival day is just the same as a normal day in God’s Book. What is wrong is when people start OBSERVING days and times as though they are RELIGIOUS DUTIES. Christians don’t do that.
Paul said about the backslidden Galatian Christians: “Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain” (Galatians 4:10-11). So that’s out.
Easter was invented by the Vatican cult, way back in Rome. They twisted the true Bible history of how Jesus died and rose again physically into a version of the pagan myth of the god of nature, the sun-god, who died in the winter and rose in the spring in the form of flowers and budding trees. They identified this sun-god with one of their famous pagan kings who lived in the so-called “Golden Age” just after the Flood. This evil king was called Tammuz, and he had other names like Adonis, Osiris and Dionysus. So it was easy for them to say Tammuz had “reappeared” on earth as Jesus. Now Jesus, to them, was the new sun-god. How perverted! That’s why they said Easter HAD to be celebrated on Sunday, the day of the sun-god. In fact thousands of true Christians were massacred by the Vatican cult in the Dark Ages because these true Christians REFUSED to worship their sun-god on Sunday at the Easter festival.
The sun-god Tammuz had a sister Cora who died and went into the underworld when he, her brother, arose from the dead in the spring flowers. It was a kind of “I’ll go down, when you come up” duo act. Her mother Ceres went searching for her dead daughter for 40 days, weeping and fasting. This 40-day fast lasted till the Sunday of Tammuz’ resurrection, when she finally found her daughter had died and gone to the underworld. That’s why the Vatican cult (and other so-called Christian para-church organizations who borrowed from them) fast for 40 days before Easter Sunday. That 40-day fast is called Lent. What a load of pagan garbage! True Christians have nothing to do with it. It’s not in the Bible at all.
Now there’s nothing wrong with Evangelists using these so-called Christian festival-times to pull in the unbelievers to hear the Gospel. They (the unbelievers) are not expected to know any different. They think that’s what Christianity is about, Easter and Christmas, and so on. But we true believers must expose it for what it is. Keep away from it, children of the Messiah!
