Hey everyone! I just wanted to say that Easter is a Pagan holiday. It originated from Nimrod who reestablished idolatry shortly after God flooded the earth.
As reported by WorldsLastChance:
The origins of Easter, however, reveal that it flows directly from ancient paganism. Shortly after the flood, Nimrod reestablished idolatry in the earth. After his death, Nimrod was promoted as the original sun god. His widow, Semiramis, was called the “queen of heaven.” Various cultures continued the idolatry of these original pagans under different names. To the Egyptians, Semiramis was Isis. To the Babylonians, she was Beltis, consort to the god, Bel. To the Cannaanites she was Astarte. The Assyrians called her Ishtar.
The worship of these goddesses involved occult fertility practices. These degrading rites were practiced even by the Israelites when in apostasy. Yahuwah clearly denounced any Israelite involvement in these pagan celebrations.
“Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger.” (Jeremiah 7:17-18, NKJV)
“And He said to me, ‘Turn again, and you will see greater abominations that they are doing.’ So He brought me to the door of the north gate of . . . [Yahuwah’s] house; and to my dismay, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz.” (Ezekiel 8:13-14, NKJV)
Modern Easter has no basis in the pure religion of Heaven. All of its traditions are pagan.
- Rabbits and dyed Easter eggs symbolize fertility.
- Hot cross buns were the “cakes” offered to the queen of heaven.
- The forty days of weeping for Tammuz are now the 40 days of Lent leading up to Easter.
- Sunrise services were performed by pagan priests to honor the sun god.
Celebration of Easter does not honor the death and resurrection of the Saviour. Participation in pagan practices honors Satan. No amount of renaming it by Christian names can purify Easter of its pagan origins.
Easter is much more than a pagan imposter pretending to be Christian. Lurking behind the pretty facade, Easter is a cover-up for the greatest fraud of all time: a calendar change which hides the true day of the resurrection and the true seventh-day Sabbath.
As the years passed and the first Christians died, paganism began to corrupt the once-pure faith. The Church in Rome, greedy of ever greater power, sought ways to increase her influence.
“To conciliate the Pagans to nominal Christianity, Rome, pursuing its usual policy, took measures to get the Christian and Pagan festivals amalgamated, and, by a complicated but skilful adjustment of the calendar, it was found no difficult matter, in general, to get Paganism and Christianity – now far sunk in idolatry – in this as in so many other things, to shake hands. . . . This change of the calendar in regard to Easter was attended with momentous consequences. It brought into the Church the grossest corruption and the rankest superstition . . . .” (Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, pp. 105-106.)
This change of calendar also changed the day of worship. This is admitted by Roman Catholics who point to it as the sign of their authority.
“Sunday . . . is purely a creation of the Catholic Church.” (American Catholic Quarterly Review, January 1883)
“They [the Protestants] deem it their duty to keep the Sunday holy. Why? Because the Catholic Church tells them to do so. They have no other reason . . . The author of the Sunday law . . . is the Catholic Church.” (Ecclesiastical Review, February 1914)
One Catholic bishop went so far as to state:
“It was the Catholic Church which made the law obliging us to keep Sunday holy. The church made this law long after the Bible was written. Hence said law is not in the Bible. The Cath[olic] Church abolished not only the Sabbath, but all the other Jewish festivals.” (T. Enright, Bishop of St. Alphonsus Church, St. Louis, Missouri, June, 1905, emphasis supplied.)

Jeremiah 7:17-18 English Standard Version (ESV):
17 Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven. And they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.
Ezekiel 8:13-14 English Standard Version (ESV):
13He said also to me, “You will see still greater abominations that they commit.”
14 Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of the Lord, and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
