You will not get much help from the media or other mainstream sites on understanding what Easter is. They are too involved in hyping eggs, rabbits, and candy. What on earth these things have to do with the resurrection of Jesus, I  have no idea, except some connections to some strange European traditions. For example, I found out just this Easter morning that the tradition of colored eggs came from Poland. People would dye eggs red to symbolize the blood of Jesus. Despite the fact that believers are indeed cleansed by the blood of Jesus shed in His sacrifice, what the connection to eggs from that exquisite sacrifice is, I have no idea whatsoever.

Easter. So much confusion. So much ignorance.

Many years ago, I heard a talk show host wondering why it was a big deal that Jesus died on the cross. His understanding was that He was just a man. He was a good man, to be sure, but many other men had died on crosses. So, what was so special about Him? Many of our responses might be that He was the God’s only Son. True, but I don’t think most unbelievers would be moved by that. They know almost nothing about God, so why should they be impressed with His Son? I think their response would be, “So?”

However—and this is my opinion—I think telling a person who is wondering about Jesus dying on the cross that He is the Creator of the universe may be more impactful. That is quite a thought to chew on. Ever since the discovery of the Big Bang, scientists have been flummoxed by this creation event. They know that nothing comes from nothing, and there seems to be only one sensible conclusion: God created the universe. It is true, nonetheless, that scientists and lay people alike have opted for the multi-universe theory, for which there is zero scientific evidence.

The lengths mankind will go to avoid the obvious truth of reality. Stunning.

However, some, in their foolish, darkened minds, who know a little about the Bible have concluded that God is a horrible being. They are not likely to be swayed by any argument whatsoever. In an opinion piece The New York Times published on April 15, 2022, entitled In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God, Shalom Auslander wrote, (These are excerpts.)

“God, it seems, paints with a wide brush. He paints with a roller. In Egypt, said our rabbi, he even killed first-born cattle. He killed cows. If he were mortal, the God of Jews, Christians and Muslims would be dragged to The Hague. And yet we praise him. We emulate him. We implore our children to be like him.”

“Perhaps now, as missiles rain down and the dead are discovered in mass graves, is a good time to stop emulating this hateful God. Perhaps we can stop extolling his brutality. Perhaps now is a good time to teach our children to pass over God — to be as unlike him as possible.”

“Killing gods is an idea I can get behind.”

Killing the Creator of the universe. Killing God Himself who offered Himself in sacrifice for Mr. Auslander’s sins. Great idea. However, tossing God out of our culture and from the town square is futile. His great and wondrous creation always speaks.

“For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Romans 1:19–20).1

Please pray for your unbelieving friends and relatives. Pray for those in positions of influence and power. Please pray for the United States. We have rejected our Creator and Savior. We must repent.
