Dear Mr. Kovacs:
I just wanted to thank you so much for the column that appeared on WND.
As a Christian, I’ve heard this Holy Day referred to as “Easter” all my life – so, when anti-God types made snide remarks about it originally being a “pagan holiday” I just blew it off as more of their hate-filled ranting. After all, 2,000 years was a long time ago, so who cares what someone used to do on this day? The whole world – including non-believers – knows that on this day, Christians all over the world celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But then I read your article – most particularly your Scriptural references – and was shocked. I’ve seen “astaroth” many times but had no idea that this false god was also called “easter”!
Again, thank you so much! An old dog CAN be taught something new, and you really enlightened me. I’ll never look at this issue the same way again. I long ago realized that Halloween wasn’t something a Christian should be observing, even in “fun” – and from now on, I won’t be observing “easter,” either.
I’ll be celebrating Resurrection Sunday – and thanking God for it!
May the Lord Jesus Christ bless and keep you and yours!
