What do you do to celebrate this time of the year?
How other the other people's of this Earth see this holiday has always been a source of interest and amusement to me. I love to ask the enlightened Christians .. "Why didn't they at least change the name from the Pagan word of Ishtar" or Ostara (saxon)? and " Are you ok with the linking of Christ's death to this said Pagan festivities"? I am usually met with a blank stare and then some drivel about Jesus was killed on the cross for our sins. No history lesson about this Nicean council. Just stories of Jesus. For me I feel in my spirit there is more. I cannot deny this.

There was a change in how things were done and it was law brought down upon all of us by the Early Roman Catholic church. After the Council of Nicea convening in the year 300 something, we now have the celebration of Easter!
It's bizarre this Easter stuff and this is the celebration of hanging someone on a tree or a cross however you want to say it so don't forget that macabre little act in history. Don't forget to eat chocolate to remember this fact.
Oh dear, this doesn't hold much water with me. I am afraid there have been way too many lies to even believe the early church cared. They didn't care. They were the instigators of greed and the love of money and this is why history is manipulated this way.
They made a conscience decision to pull the wool over everyone's eyes after putting together the said Bible... which is MISSING too many books to make it complete and if and when you read this you will see the holes as I did.
All this did was make me look harder as I am not fooled easily by this type of fanciful story. I am more easily taken in by my peers in this life here and now. I think this is the reason I understand this. If people can be fooled today, they most definitely could be fooled back in those early and ancient times by the same greed and corrupt types of people. They don't disappear..... they have children and multiply their evil creed!
This change has been a hideous and evil dysfunction of our entire human society for over 2000 years. That is a long time to live a lie. This lie is the underlying reason our Earth is dying in my opinion. This greed they fostered out of this so called arrangement of Religion is behind the greed of this earth.
The reason that the scriptures dealing with our true connection to God had been left out of this so called Bible. I love God, Please do not mistake this fact. I hate organised religion and all of its false teachings and its lies it continues to foster!
I keep saying this doesn't work for me and I think I like the original meaning. I love who Jesus the person was but I am just not sure of how they (early churches in Rome) detailed it out. There are many holes and much is lost of the original parchments. I know that Emperor Constantine was a control freak and whence the time comes for me to journey into the next world, I intend to ask: "Why did you manipulate humanity for an eternity with this crap".
