Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
Jeremiah 10:3 For the customs of the people [are] vain: for [one] cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
Jeremiah 10:4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
The Easter Story
When Tyndale first translated Hebrew and Greek to English he faced the problem. The Greek word Pascha and the Hebrew word Pesach are always translated Passover. However in Acts 12:4 it is rendered correctly Easter because this day was after Passover and the days of uneven bread. Herod apprehended Peter intending to kill him later after Easter which could not at that time coincide with the Passover. The translation may be confusing but the term Easter is absolutely correct depicting the day Herod was speaking of.
Easter was and is a pagan holiday observed by Herod and the Romans not the Christians or Jews.

Christmas, Easter, Eostre etc. Many pastors are not teaching the truth because they care more for the money and crowded church. Will Jesus be honored by a lie? Will Jesus hold harmless the pompous, pride engorged pastors who fail to tell their congregations the truth. Who is the father of lies? Who is the father of Christmas or Xmas or Easter or Halloween?
One would think that Christians, even false-christians would have enough sense that I would not even need to deal with Halloween here, but the backsliding and falling away is worse than I had ever imagined so click here for Halloween info..
