Remember, when we know what to do, and do not do it, then it is counted as sin, (James 4:17). Where did we come to celebrate the sacred resurrection day with bunnies, chicks, and eggs? And how are the two related?
They are not, because Easter is a pagan holiday which starts with the celebration of a pagan “mother goddess of spring”, who was worshipped for “fertility” reasons. The people wanted their grounds fertile for harvest and they wanted to be fruitful and prosperous. So they gave worship to the goddess named “Easter” and thereby decorated eggs in honor of her. The name has evolved through several spellings over time.
Bunnies do not lay eggs, and so this is just another distraction of satan and his wicked influence upon the world’s system. It’s only to try and take away from the real reason for this day that is set aside to remember the work of Christ and his resurrection.
We ask are there many Christians guilty for dyeing and hiding “Easter eggs” for children?
Do we help to continue the pagan traditions? We all have been at some point, even in our churches so let us take into consideration of how we take part in celebrating pagan traditions. Do the research because when you know what is truth and what is actually right, then you are responsible for doing what is right in the sight of God.
James 4:17…. Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
