The "Easter" Bunny
Why We Separate Ourselves and Our
from the Traditions of "Easter"
Easter Traditions and History:
(Click on the
links for further information):
- The customs celebrated today as
"Easter" are historically and Scripturally identified and tied
into the worship of the abominable pagan sex goddess Astarte.
- Astarte is the sex goddess of
the sun god Baal and is also called "the queen of heaven" in
7:18 and 44:17-25. more
- According to Ezekiel,
associations with Astarte (the sex goddess of Baal) ruined many
Israelites and was a direct cause of the final overturning of the
nation of Israel and the departing of the glory (presence) of
Yahweh from the people and the nation. more
- The heathen have many absurd
"egg" stories, one of which is that the world began when the very
fertile sex goddess Astarte (whose symbol is the prolific rabbit)
laid a large egg which was warmed and then hatched by the Sun (the
god Baal). Because Spring is the season of "mother nature's"
rebirth, worshippers of the sun god, Baal, and his goddess,
Astarte, yearly celebrated the Feast of Astarte at the time of the
Vernal Equinox (when sun light is about to overtake and exceed the
length of the nighttime). more
- At the feast of Astarte an ox was sacrificed.
The ox's horns became a symbol for Astarte's Feast and were carved
into the ritual bread. Thus originated "hot cross buns." The word
"buns" is derived from the Saxon word "boun" which means "sacred
ox." See Jer.
7:18 and 44:17-25 .
- The Spring Lily was a phallic symbol of
Astarte's sexual organs.
- The Feast of Astarte began by
welcoming and celebrating the sunrise on the Vernal Equinox. This
sunrise worship of the sun god is condemned by Yahweh in Ezekiel.
The "Sunrise Service" is still an intragal part of Easter today.
- The Catholic Church slowly and
gradually grafted these pagan customs on to the name and
resurrection of Christ Jesus by blending paganism and biblical
accounts together to create their calendar of Easter "holy days".
Upon whose authority or wisdom do we decide what
is clean and what is unclean in our lives? There are many who have
never thought about what the traditions of Easter really mean, and
there are some that know the pagan ties and still say the traditions
of Easter are clean and harmless. But Yahweh Himself has declared
these customs as unclean abominations. Therefore, as He did, we
remove ourselves and our children far from them.
