Church rebel

As a Christ follower I dread Easter. Call me a church rebel but I observe Jesus’ death and resurrection at Passover. So did the apostle Paul, who calls Christ “our Passover.” Easter (Ishtar) is a pagan goddess the Old Testament Israelites embraced, provoking God’s wrath. I’m guessing most pastors know this but remain silent. In the words of Jeremiah, the prophet who watched his Jewish neighbors worship the Queen of Heaven (Ishtar): “Astonishment has taken hold of me.”
