    Is anyone else familiar with this story? Do you think we should celebrate Easter? Do you celebrate the New Testament Passover?

     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Semiramis turned ishtar turned rabbit into egg laying.

    Easter Sunday is a reminder to me as a Christian of the resurrection of the Son of God,our LORD Jesus Christ the Saviour of the world. I celebrate and experience His resurrection power in my life everyday. Good Friday reminds of His death for my sins upon the cross of Calvary. Every day 'I am crucified with Christ and it is no longer I that liveth but Christ lives in me. My life is 'hidden with Christ in God'. I remember how He was buried in a tomb but God raised Him from the dead.

    The Easter I believe in is not a great lie. It is the truth and essential to the Christian Faith.

    It brings new life in Christ when we trust in Him as our Saviour.

    An egg to me is a symbol of new life and nothing to do with pagan religion. I am free to eat one or not to with the right motive.

    But do kids believe there's an Easter bunny who lays eggs?

    Yes, while we raise our children in truth to know the difference, there is an element of vain jangle there, but reckless when left to themselves. That goes for other pagan observances too, saddened for them that have no hope, humored at such foolishness.

    I got a problem with the pagan myths because I prayed to santa when I was little because my parents were perpetuating the deception.

    It made me find the truth once I found out santa was them.

    It hurts the trusting nature of Faith, children need guidance to Truth, Jesus
