Pastele-Easter-Ishtar

Observ ca mai sunt multi care sarbatoresc Pastele, crezand ca e o sarbatoare crestina, insa, ganditi-va logic: ce legatura exista intre iepurasi si oua si invierea lui Iisus?

Daca Pastele nu se regaseste in Biblie, atunci de unde a venit?

Multi istorici sunt de acord ca Pastele[Easter] si traditiile care il insotesc, au radacini adanci in paganism. Iata doar cateva dintre declaratiile unora dintre ei:

easter“Since Bede the Venerable (De ratione temporum 1:5) the origin of the term for the feast of Christ’s Resurrection has been popularly considered to be from the Anglo-Saxon Eastre, a goddess of spring…the Old High German plural for dawn, eostarun; whence has come the German Ostern, and our English Easter” (The New Catholic Encyclopedia, 1967, Vol. 5, p. 6).

“The fact that vernal festivals were general among pagan peoples no doubt had much to do with the form assumed by the Eastern festival in the Christian churches. The English term Easter is of pagan origin” (Albert Henry Newman, D.D., LL.D., A Manual of Church History, p. 299).

“On this greatest of Christian festivals, several survivals occur of ancient heathen ceremonies. To begin with, the name itself is not Christian but pagan. Ostara was the Anglo-Saxon Goddess of Spring” (Ethel L. Urlin, Festival, Holy Days, and Saints Days, p. 73).

“Easter—the name Easter comes to us from Ostera or Eostre, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, for whom a spring festival was held annually, as it is from this pagan festival that some of our Easter customs have come” (Hazeltine, p. 53).

“In Babylonia…the goddess of spring was called Ishtar. She was identified with the planet Venus, which, because…[it] rises before the Sun…or sets after it…appears to love the light [this means Venus loves the sun-god]…In Phoenecia, she became Astarte; in Greece, Eostre [related to the Greek word Eos: “dawn”], and in Germany, Ostara [this comes from the German word Ost: “east,” which is the direction of dawn]” (Englehart, p. 4).

Nu mai are rost sa  traduc aceste citate, insa dupa cum se observa, multe nume se intercaleaza cu binecunoscutul Paste[Easter]. Paganii foloseau diferite nume pentru acelasi zeu sau zei. De exemplu, Nimrod, personajul Biblic care a construit orasul Babylon (Geneza 10:8) este un exemplu in acest sens. El a fost adorat ca Saturn, Vulcan, Kronos, Baal, Tammuz, Molech si altii, dar a fost de fapt acelasi zeu. Zeul focului sau al soarelui au fost adorati in toate culturile antice.

Astfel, zeii Pastelui[Easter], care se asociaza cu Pastele, nu sunt diferiti, ci este de fapt un zeu cu mai multe denumiri- zeul fertilitatii, adorat primavara, atunci cand viata renaste si reinvie. Acum sa ne uitam putin pe unele dintre cele mai cunoscute traditii care se asociaza cu Pastele[Easter].

OUALE DE PASTE

Ouale de Paste, sunt cel mai cunoscut obicei legat de Paste si aproape orice cultura din lumea moderna are o traditie lunga in colorarea si decorarea oualor in diferite moduri. Ele pot sa difere, in functie de regiuni si traditii locale.
Luati aminte la urmatoarele:

The origin of the Easter egg is based on the fertility lore of the Indo-European races…The egg to them was a symbol of spring…In Christian times the egg had bestowed upon it a religious interpretation, becoming a symbol of the rock tomb out of which Christ emerged to the new life of His resurrection” (Francis X. Weiser, Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs, p. 233). This is a direct example of exactly how pagan symbols and customs are “Christianized,” i.e., Christian-sounding names are superimposed over pagan customs. This is done to deceive—as well as make people feel better about why they are following a custom that is not in the Bible.

“Around the Christian observance of Easter…folk customs have collected, many of which have been handed down from the ancient ceremonial…symbolism of European and Middle Eastern pagan spring festivals…for example, eggs…have been very prominent as symbols of new life and resurrection” (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1991 ed., Vol. 4, p. 333).

Finally, the following comes from Egyptian Belief and Modern Thought, James Bonwick, pp. 211-212: “Eggs were hung up in the Egyptian temples. Bunsen calls attention to the mundane egg, the emblem of generative life, proceeding from the mouth of the great god of Egypt. The mystic egg of Babylon, hatching the Venus Ishtar, fell from heaven to the Euphrates. Dyed eggs were sacred Easter offerings in Egypt, as they are still in China and Europe. Easter, or spring, was the season of birth, terrestrial and celestial.”

Ce poate fi mai clar decat faptul ca OUL de Paste, nu are nicio legatura cu Dumnezeu, iar Dumnezeu nu a ordonat si nu a autorizat niciodata OUALE de Paste, si desigur absolut nicio legatura cu Invierea lui Cristos, si nu se regaseste nicaieri in Noul Testament.

IEPURASUL DE PASTE

Desigur toti ne dam seama si realizam ca atat oulale cat si iepurasii de Paste nu au nicio conexiune cu Crestinismul.

“The Easter bunny is not a true Christian symbol” (John Bradner, Symbols of Church Seasons and Days, p. 52), and “Although adopted in a number of Christian cultures, the Easter bunny has never received any specific Christian interpretation” (Mirsea Eliade, The Encyclopedia of Religion, p. 558).

“The hare, the symbol of fertility in ancient Egypt, a symbol that was kept later in Europe…Its place has been taken by the Easter rabbit” (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1991 ed., Vol. 4, p. 333).

Chiar in timpurile moderne, iepurii sunt cunoscuti ca simbol al fertilitatii (probabil cunoasteti si voi expresia:’se inmultesc ca iepurii’ :) , datorita ratei rapide de reproducere. O alta problema care se ridica: Iepurii nu fac oua!!! Desi ambele sunt simboluri are fertilitatii, nu exista nicio conexiune logica intre cele doua. Intr-o lume plina cu traditii pagane, perpetuate cu stiinta sau fara de stiinta de mii de ani, adevarul si logica s-au pierdut pe undeva pe drum… Introducand aceste obiceiuri pagane in Crestinism fac ca aceste practici idolatre sa devina si mai condamnabile.

Nu exista nimic in Crestinism care sa aiba de-a face cu aceste simboluri. Intregul concept care se asociaza cu Crestinismul nu este decat o minciuna care sa pacaleasca copii inocenti.
