Why do most "churches" professing to be Christian celebrate easter.


Why do most of the churches professing to be Christian celebrate easter and all the foolishness that goes with it when it is actually a bastardized holiday honoring the sungod ishtar. when the scriptures clearly tell us not to mix the Holy and the profane? and Jesus himself told us only to remember him with we call the communion meal.

    your opinion is that of the "churches of men" and not the truth of scripture, thats why Paul rebuked the churches.. There is ONLY one Correct interpretation of scripture and all Christians are supposed to work together to be of one accord

    The part that screams "Ishtar" is by your own words, "...we recognize EASTER as a day to celebrate that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is risen and alive." Easter has nothing to do with Jesus Christ. Do your research.

    you are pretty much correct, but it still does not make them valid holidays for the true church. Only for the "churches of men" are they of any value and that is not eternal, just temporal like all things of the "modern (false) church system"

    like most good church folks you do not believe following scripture that tells us not to mix the Holy and the profane is important in pleasing God and that disobedience ok. And there is nothing wrong with celebrating bastardized holidays

    No, there is nothing wrong with honoring your faith. Nothing at all - unless it interferes with the liberties of anyone else, have at it. I'll even go one further - you should always be grateful for what you have and praise the universe for it.

    junkseller,

    I don't believe in the same Jesus that you do. My Jesus has revealed what He thinks of pagan tradition in His Word. If you want to ignore God's Word and historical fact go ahead. I'm not buying into your Jesus. I am not that gullible.

    The problem is the "churches" of men do not acknowledge the sign of Jonah (3 days and 3 nights) Jesus gave, but make Him out to be a liar by celebrating Good Friday afternoon to Easter Sunday morning (2 days and 2 nights).
