The debate that Easter is considered Pagan Spring Equinox and not A Christian Tradition

Easter is considered Pagan and not A Christian Tradition As anything such as the celebration of Yule etc…  Again the old time religion seems to step forward in its glory of being responsible for many celebrations that have been adopted by Christianity over the centuries.

To those that are biblical scholars and believers, the celebration of Easter cannot be found in the bible, however, it is found in Ancient Pagan Traditions.

Pagans have always revered and honored the spring, because through time we saw the sun increasing in power, animals mating, and plant life reviving and rebirth. With their minds totally blinded by a holy God, they exalted animal and human fertility, reproduction, and sexual love. Goddesses of love and fertility were worshipped with spring festivals and gross immorality. The Roman Catholic Church, seeking to “Christianize” the pagans, gave new names and meanings to the old pagan festivals to keep their unregenerated members happy. Any encyclopedia will confirm this brief synopsis, and we have provided some links to help you at the bottom of this document. But Bible Christians are plainly told to reject any association with pagan religion or any religious things highly esteemed by the world. Any participation in them is spiritual adultery and highly offensive to the most high God.

The Oxford English Dictionary reads, “Easter. The name is derived from Eostre, the name of a goddess whose festival was celebrated at the vernal equinox; her name shows that she was originally the dawn-goddess.” Compton’s Encyclopedia reads, “Our name Easter comes from Eostre, an ancient Anglo-Saxon goddess, originally of the dawn. In pagan times an annual spring festival was held in her honor.” Academic American Encyclopedia reads, “According to the Venerable Bede, the name Easter derived from the pagan spring festival of the Anglo-Saxon goddess Eostre.” Though the King James Bible has the word “Easter” in Acts 12:4, it was used only as a synonym for the Passover, or the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which was the event under consideration, as Herod waited for the right time to kill Peter and not offend the Jews (Acts 12:1-3). The OED confirms this use of “Easter” as a synonym for the Jewish Passover.

  1. Yes I truly agree, also the Christmas holiday is one of pagan ideals, for Mithra was born on the 25 of December and also winter solstice starts around that time frame. Dionisyusus
