The Falsehoods of Easter

As far back as 3300 BC, Easter started as Astarte, an Ancient Middle Eastern sun goddess known as the Queen of Heaven, marking spring’s beginning. Ancient tribes were known to sacrifice their children to gods—for profitable crops.   

Easter became associated with the Assyrian goddess Ishtar by way of its name and was incorporated as a symbol for the remembrance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ by Christianity to give credence to Catholicism—which stemmed from pagan rituals and beliefs.

According to Christian doctrine—God is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, and omnificent. In other words, he knows everything before, during, and after their existence.

There lies the falsehoods of Easter and the symbolization of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:14 – And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

God supposedly sacrificed his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, on the cross for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins.

A true sacrifice is when one sacrifices their only son or daughter (for whatever reason), knowing they may never return to them. According to Catholicism, Jesus Christ is alive and well, sitting at the Father’s right hand.

Numerous pagan gods died and were resurrected before the existence of Jesus Christ—who just so happened also accomplished the same accomplishment Jesus would—thousands of years later.


Oddly enough, Easter started with the sacrifice of innocent children’s lives.  Today Easter is celebrated by billions of children the world over.

Easter wasn’t celebrated in America until sometime after the Civil War.

The bird, hare, and egg—originated from pagan beliefs and were incorporated into Easter festivities.

Happy Easter
