Church rebel


As a Christ follower this may come as a shock: 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 celebrated, provoking God’s wrath. I’m guessing most pastors know this but remain silent. In the words of Jeremiah, the prophet who watched fellow Jews embrace idolatry: “Astonishment has taken hold of me.”
