Meaning of Easter
April 12, 2009 2:23pm CST
Every year Christian and some Non-Christian place alot of emphasis on Easter. To them it is the time not to eat meat and to reflect on Jesus Christ death. But in the bible Jesus Christ told us to remember him in the form of the Lord Supper. In this scripture 1 Corinthians 11:23–28. Isn't it as Christian Jesus Christ dead should always in rememberance and not only at Easter. I believe that we should always see his death as a means of darkness being conqueror and thus we should always be thankful for this everyday of our life. What are your thoughts.

We remember his Resurrection at Easter, that is, we have special services on Sunday and the not eating of meat is usually only followed by those Christians of the Eastern Orthodox and Ukrainain Orthodox Churches. The Roman Catholics give up meat for Fridays, but other Christians do not give up meat for those days. The rest of the year we all remember that we are now saved, and there is no need to crucify HIM anew. Then you get mixed up with pagan mythoology where their gods were born anew in spring time.

Very good discussion Kerry I have long since believed that the lord supper is the only festival that we must celebrate and we must be carefull about the incorporation of the pagan celebrations into thechritian worship.I rememeber Paul it was (i believe .I stand corrected if i am wrong ) a particular congreagtion to be mindful of this when he spoke about in Galations 5:9 about a little leaven spoiling the whole lump and consequently a little pagan celebration here andcould spoil the worship
