Here are some thoughts, usually negative in nature. Maybe some of you Easter advocates can provide some positive outcomes for Easter:

The Easter season makes it possible for the secular press to attack Christ, such as the series on CNN that tries to separate fact from fiction, providing an open door for agnosticism.

The season gives opportunity to churches to change the traditions.

The season gives occasion to show Jesus writhing on the cross.

The season makes it possible to sell books like "Killing Jesus" which is traumatic for many Christians.

The season makes it difficult to find any place to eat on that Sunday.

The season can be said to distract from Jesus' teaching although this is not always true.

The season tends to replace inner meaning with ritual, often coercive in nature, such as a church asking those with conscience problems to pin flowers on crosses.

The season makes the weekly Lord's Supper to appear minor, with churches letting church ministers to lead the table, thus institutionalizing the clergy.

The season confuses the Easter bunny with Jesus.

The season makes it difficult to address the problem of religious syncretism, that is the mixing of religions through the centuries.

The season emphasizes ritual more than inner meaning.

The season gives a pyramid of days and observances, bringing us back to an Old Testament-like atmosphere, with the observances of days and observances, somewhat violating the freedom in Christ.

The outward observance can be offensive to those who feel that they can be dedicated without outward show.

[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]There is a colossal difference between: (1) what the New Testament teaches regarding the resurrection of Jesus Christ and (2) the pagan-and-Catholic-originated Easter festival.

Dave, did you observe the "Holy Week" before Easter? You know about the Easter Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, etc.). Did you do Lent (a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, penance, etc.)? If not, see what you're missing? What are you going to do now the rest of the Easter season of some 7 weeks beginning with the "Easter Sunday"?

When are you going to announce to the world to celebrate "Easter Sunday" EVERY Sunday of EVERY WEEK so that "He gets more praise"?[/color]
"When are you going to announce to the world to celebrate "Easter Sunday" EVERY Sunday of EVERY WEEK so that "He gets more praise"?"

That is exactly what I did.....some people just don't listen. They hear what they want to hear.

Apr 05, 2015 -- Easter Sunday just celebrated
Apr 12, 2015 -- Dave will celebrate Easter again
Apr 19, 2015 -- Dave will celebrate Easter again

People keep trying to put themselves in the place of apostles: the "missional" church restores the five-fold ministry of Ephesians 4 and that means that you must have prophets and apostles whom you must never question. Here is the Easter Proof text:

Acts 4:32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

Acts 4:33 And with great power gave the apostles WITNESS of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

Acts 4:34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,


Those who make a false spectacle of Jesus say that YOU must sell your possessions sos we can raise 6 million dollars and establish 60,000 congregations. Here, is the only WITNESSES of the resurrection:

Acts 1:15 ¶ And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)
Acts 1:16 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.

http://www.piney.com/DSSPsa41.html

which defines the MUSICAL MOCKING aka holy Ishtar day.


Acts 1:17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
Acts 1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
Acts 1:19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
Acts 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
Acts 1:21 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
Acts 1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.


The testimony of the resurrection has been declared.
Almost without exception those who sell worship by the works (not much) of their own hands DENY that baptism has anything to do with salvation. However, Paul in the epistles which they REPUDIATE says that BAPTISM is the time and place where we conform to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. If you want to speak about the Resurrection to anyone you meet or "in church" that's fine but when you do a yearly ritual observation (to which the kingdom does not come) and based on the HEAVENLY BODIES then you are think that rituals by the work of your hands have some SAVING POWER.

Easter and Christmas are for the TWICERS who feel satisfied because so much emphasis is placed on rituals.

I am satisfied that Ezekiel 8 by the Spirit OF Christ repudiated the sun rise service and the ritual calling Tammuz (pagan Jesus) back from hell so he can play his flute and start the spring revival of vegetation.

No doubt, preaching the resurrection of Christ is a pattern.

Donnie, you say that you observe Christ's resurrection every Sunday. Of course, it's obvious that whenever you attend Madison's Sunday services, you're really unable to give your complete, undivided attention to Christ's resurrection, because you're also taking copious notes about the goings-on at Madison so you can publish and critique them here. That you and Ken oppose giving special attention to one Sunday as "Easter" is also quite clear. Therefore, I would imagine that you both enjoy the ABC presentation of that not-about-Easter movie that annually airs on Easter, The Ten Commandments, starring Charlton Heston as Moses. Apparently ABC realizes that a few Christians like you and Ken would prefer to join forces, so to speak, with the non-Christians to bash and avoid the celebration of Easter, so ABC shows a "religious," not-about-Easter movie at that time, just for your benefit.

I've had a hard time finding something to watch which wasn't selling Jesus and defacto lying.

Right now, I'm watching the Bubble Decade and the blowers joke about getting to be king-queen for a day. I didn't fall for any of them. The same channel has another favorite that I am watching next: "American Greed." I also watch the cold-case shows: maybe you can lie, cheat, steal from widows and kill (if you thought you could get by with it) but God gave you DNA to MARK and find you out.

In the world of religionism which is anti-Christianism I paid for the golden egg THREE TIMES. However, in the end I just got goosed.

When they start goose-clapping just know that clap means vomit in Hebrew and a bad venereal disease.

List of good observations: sounds original.

Because all spectacles (theatron making a spectacle of Jesus) in fact replace the WORD as "taught" The Spirit OF Christ in Isaish 8 says THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.

No doubt, preaching the resurrection of Christ is a pattern.
1Corinthians 2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you,
<font color="#FFFFFF">.....
came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom,
.....declaring unto you the testimony of God.


The Testimony of God by Christ is the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. A school of Christ is built upon the Prophets (by Christ) and the Apostles (written for our memory). If you go beyond that which is written for faith and dogma you cannot be a disciple or Christian.

Contrary to all of the Doctors of the Law Paul didn't say that he was just going to PREACH just Jesus but to KNOW the CRUCIFIED Christ. The Crucifixion will SILENCE everyone.

.....1Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you,
.....save Jesus Christ, and him CRUCIFIED.


Now, doctors of the law predestined to "take away the key to knowledge" by saying that we should just KNOW the resurrection: that leads them to believe that THEY are predestined.

How to MARK those who know a CRUCIFIED JESUS:

1Corinthians 2:3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
1Corinthians 2:4 And my speech and my preaching
.....was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom,
..... but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
1Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men,
.....but in the power of God.
1Corinthians 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect:
..... yet not the wisdom of this world,
.....nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
1Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom,
.....which God ordained before the world unto our glory:


AND HID FROM THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES, HYPOCRITES: SPEAKERS, SINGERS, INSTRUMENT PLAYERS, ACTORS. Matt 13

1Corinthians 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have CRUCIFIED the Lord of glory.

[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]In past generations, I believe that churches of Christ, in general, did not have this "Easter" celebration as it is now -- an imitation of what many Protestant Churches observe and celebrate. Because of the larger crowd, it was an occasion, however, during which the gospel message of salvation was delivered.

I think there are still many congregations of the church of Christ, esp. smaller ones, that do not celebrate "Easter" as a "holy day" even though the message of the power of Christ's resurrection is preached, as well as the resurrection of the dead, the eternal judgment in the end.[/color]

[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Bill,

I did not say that I "observe Christ's resurrection every Sunday."

That was Dave's announcement: "For those who observe Easter AND communinon on the first day of EVERY week, we do well because that means He gets MORE praise."

You seem to be equating "Easter" with what the New Testament speaks of the resurrection of Christ. What's happened to you? [/color]
