Easter is another name of Passover is the celebration to memorialize the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:1). The Bible teaches that Jesus came into the world, that He lived and He died, that three days later He rose again from the dead, and that He is alive forever. The Passover is a wonderful picture of Christ's atonement for His people and His deliverance of us from the bondage of sin. That is something we should celebrate every day of our lives. We should celebrate Easter with prayers, meditation and going to church, caring for the sick and the poor . Easter s focus is to be mainly on Jesus' execution, His burial and, most importantly, His rising from death not to mislead our children with fables of an Easter Bunnies and eggs. Pagans have worshiped rabbits as sex and fertility gods, and have looked upon them as symbols of lust, sexual vigor and reproduction. Eggs also have been symbols of fertility, sex and new life, also with celebrations in the springtime. The egg was a sacred symbol among the Babylonians. The symbol of the rabbit is actually a Pagan symbol, for the ancient Pagan celebration of Eastre.


The Goddess, Eastre, was worshiped by Anglo-Saxons, and was known by her unique symbol, of the rabbit. The Germans were actually the first country to recognize the rabbit as an Easter symbol, and spread Bunny Cheer throughout the world, including America.

Easter bunnies and rabbits are pagan and should not be taught in any Christian home.

" teach my people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean." Ezekiel 34:23

There are number of scriptures in the Bible instructing us not to borrow the customs of the heathen or pagans to worship the true God: "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen... For the customs of the people are vain:"(Jer. 10:2),(Jer. 10:3).

Here is what the scriptures have to say who celebrate Jesus as well as Bunnies:

"No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Matthew 6:24

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Romans 12:1

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
