Please Remember The Real Meaning Behind Easter


Growing up as a kid I remember being so excited for the Easter bunny to have left me a basket of goodies behind. The real meaning escaped me then as to what gift I really had been given. Bunnies are cute of course and kids love them and the treats they associate together, and as I have gotten older it seems the real meaning is forgotten more and more as society has grown more secular.

If we were not given the gift by the Lord of the life of his only son, we would not have the gift of eternal life. A life free of the pain and sorrow of this world compared to some peanut butter eggs. If we don't make sure that people understand this ultimate gift and the small amount of work we must do to receive it, we condemn people to a terrible fate.


Happy Easter My Friends

Great article. Nothing wrong with the Easter bunny as long as we teach the real meaning and sacrifice that surrounds Easter.

JT I bet when you were a kid your Mom had to use a bushel basket for your Easter basket to hold your 50 pounds of candy.

The real sad thing is all the "holidays" that have to do with God's son Christ Jesus are all pagan....why not just have them open the bible and teach them about Jesus. Just like saying he died on a cross which is not correct the Greek word Stau.ros' means torture stake....an upright stake or pole...how do so many people associate something so righteous with so much untruths??? Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, Tooth fairy.....guess they keep children entertained.

AMEN and God Bless you and April my friend.
to anonymous @4:35 I still believe in Santa Claus,The Easter Bunny,The Tooth Fairy,Pots of Gold, Cupid etc. I am going to be 50 this yr. These childhood gift givers keep us young at heart!...
By the way the first St. Nick gave children a piece of candy where ever he went with a hand written note of inspirational bible verses.

Whether you believe in God or our Lord Jesus Christ or not, we did not evolve from a monkey. Someone had to create us.

To my Christian friends. HE HAS RISEN!

Happy Easter everyone, enjoy the time you have with any of your family. Tomorrow is never promised.
