    When translated fro the Greek word kosmos, "world" can mean (1) humankind as a whole, apart from their moral condition or course of life, (2) the framework of human circumstances into which a person is born and in which he lives, or (3) the mass of mankind apart from Jehovah's approved servants.

    The Bible teaches that Satan is 'the god of this world.' - 2 Corinthians 4:4.

    The word "Easter" does appear to have its origin from a pagan goddess. Although there are other possible origins for the word. But days of the week get their names from pagans gods, as do many months of the year. Yet I have never heard anyone claim that since Christians go to church on "sunday" they are worshipping the Roman sun god. Nor that if Christians go to church during January, they are worshiping the Roman god Janus.

    The Christian celebration comes from the day on which Jesus rose from the dead, and draws many of its traditions from the Jewish Passover which is 1500 years older then the Christian faith.

    Good luck finding day in the year that someone is not already celebrating as a religious holiday for some other faith. The Jewish Passover, the Christian holiday, and many pagan holidays all occur at or near the solar equinox. Since the name "Easter" was already applied to that day, it was adopted by the Christians (just like we did the days of week and the months.) It is easier then called it "the Christian holiday that comes on the first Sunday after the first full moon that follow the solar equinox."

    As far as the idea of using the symbol of eggs or rabbits, hopefully you are smart enough the realize that any symbol means whatever the people who use it decide it means. If Christians want to use the symbol of a rabbit, that has nothing to do with how others used that symbol in the past. If that was true, then the Gay Rights Movement with its use of the rainbow as their symbol must have evolved from the Christian church because it used (and still does) that symbol for 2000 years. We know that is not true.

    Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. The Assyrians worshipped a fertility goddess. No connect between the two.

    Thanks for playing, better luck next time.

    The ancient picture you posted is in the past and many things in history might not be correct and is better to just respect the past. Please do not blame Ishtar for the problems in the world caused by humanity.

    Honestly?..... this is the world at large trying to be shaped by religion. This is how it turns out. Just read the bible and it will become clear. Religion is the most dishonest position anyone can have. It is dishonest to assert as fact that which is not evidently true. That, within itself, is a plain, cold, hard fact. Religious woo-woo, magical sky daddy, talking snakes and donkeys.... what did you expect to come from it? Really?.......

    While Easter is named for a goddess in English and some other Germanic languages, it is not named after Ishtar and Ishtar is NEVER pronounced Easter. Chistopher Hawkin's given name means Christ-bearer. Think about that for a moment.

    Right now, a fallen world, in which death and disease can happen.

    A world where wicked is accepted and righteous behavior is rejected. A world where men promote depravity (whatever form it takes) rather than teach against it. The kind of world that the Bible said long ago it would be. And now it is.

    This is a fallen world, defiled by sin.

      What non-believers don’t understand is that this is prophecy coming to life right before our eyes. I learned about all of this nearly 20 years ago in a revelations class; no Christian is surprised by any of this.
