These traditions of man have become so very important to all the churches, not just the originator of Easter, and Christmas, the Catholic church. The churches that came out of the Mother church tried their best to separate from her, but her influence, and the world, over the years is just too much. Did the Baptist in their beginning believe in Easter and Christmas? I don't think so. They didn't go along with the world. Who here can find Easter, Lent, and Good Friday in the Bible? God in the beginning tells what a day and night is, and three days in the earth tells us man is wrong again. Friday from 6PM to Saturday 6PM (1st day) to Sunday 6PM (2nd day) to Monday 6PM (3rd day) just will not cut the mustard as to when Jesus Christ arose. As to Easter, why in the world do we wish to be associated with the Babylonians, Phoenicians, and the Chaldeans who thousands of years before Jesus Christ had the Holy Days of their Spring festivals to praise and honor the goddess Ishtar? Ishtar, or Astarte, was their goddess of spring and rebirth. This is the way "rabbits" have entered into our churches. The Catholic church wanted more members, and they got them when they agreed to bring their pagan gods to sit beside Our God, and said we will honor the dates you worship your god's, thus began Easter and Christmas for the world. Can we find in His Word what so many have come to believe worthy of worshiping and honoring in our churches? Have we not turned to man to have two special Holy Days to worship as we please instead with the cup remember me as oft as your will?
