Warm and fuzzy?

Want to teach your children about Easter?  1.  Skip the bunnies and eggs and first teach them about what Christ had to endure - crucifixion was a grotesquely cruel form of execution.  2.  The day of His resurrection represents the hope He gave every single person who lives on the planet - since that time and forever in the future.  3.  The gift offered through this incredible sacrifice and unimaginable suffering is only available to those who open their hearts to Him.  4.  Teach them this verse.

Amen to that.

Someone asked if we thought the Easter Bunny was a socialist?

John Wells said...

The Easter Bunny is Satan's way of distracting you from the power of God and eternal salvation available only through Jesus Christ.

This day, let us humbly offer thanksgiving and praise for the salvation and redemption offered to us, if we will only acknowledge and accept.

"Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more;
death hath no more dominion over him."
(Romans 6:9)

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved."
(Romans 10:9)

Hmmm ... wasn't aware that the Easter Bunny was a tool of Satan.

According to some sources, the Easter bunny first arrived in America in the 1700s with German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania and transported their tradition of an egg-laying hare called “Osterhase” or “Oschter Haws.” Who knew the Germans were in cahoots with Satan.

Lol Steve. :-) That poor, sweet-eyed, loved bunny does not know how ugly some people might think he is with those markings.

Anything that convolutes the message has Satan's hands on it. That is what he does best.
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

I couldn't help but notice they had the White House Satan's Egg Roll yesterday. It's all starting to make sense now.

WhyR said...

Very droll, Steve.

Steve said...

Okay, maybe it was only a Fabergé egg roll.
