Is The Word easter In The Bible?

My daughter informed me, that at church she learned that the term easter was in the Bible. I told her “no”. But then I had to make sure if it was, because she was so sure that it was (because of what her Sunday school teacher had said to her). To be honest, I wasn’t sure where the word easter came from or where, for that matter, the easter bunny came from either. I had been raised with it and so many people I know are raised with it, that it is just taken for granted that it has to do with Jesus.

So after much research, we decided that easter is not a term that we will use any longer. easter sunday will now be replaced in our household by Resurrection Sunday. I know the missionaries meant well, by trying to save the pagans from an early death for their belief in Christ, but I think they went against God by doing so. Are we not supposed to be willing to die for our belief in Him? Anyway, there is no longer a fear for our family, to suffer the consequence of death if we don’t worship the goddess eastre, so we will put her in the river with the rest of our troubles and be set free with the freedom of letting her go. And hopefully when the time comes we will not deny knowing Jesus three times or be unwilling to die for Him. Peter found his strength in our Lord and so must we!

The term easter refers to the goddess eastre (ostara, oestre), not to the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The website I appreciated the most on this subject was:

http://wilstar.com/holidays/easter.htm

It is very informative, yet not condemning.

P.S. To those that have written and sent easter, I mean Resurrection pieces, they were wonderful and thank you very much. I especially liked the one on pinetree crosses. I will never look at a pinetree without thinking of Christ and the cross that He bore and we are to bear (27And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple). I have not been faithful in reading or writing at Faithwriters, because my dad is not doing well and so much time and prayer has been spent on family and family issues. Your prayers as always are much appreciated.

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