All Things Are Yours!

Let's see, today is Wednesday, (a day named after the Norse god 'Odin',) March, (a month named after the Roman god of war 'Mars',) 27th. And this Sunday, (a day named after the sun, an object of worship for many ancient pagans,) is Easter. Which is no more a celebration of Ishtar than today is a holy day for Odin or that tomorrow is a holy day for Thor. It is a fallacy to claim that the name itself renders Easter observances pagan. BTW, the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, the Syro-Phoenecian Astarte, the Canaanite goddess Athtart and god Athtar, and the Hebrew Ashtoreth all derive their names from an altogether different root than Easter. Also this is A.D. (Anno Domini, Year of Our LORD) 2013, which declares He owns and governs all things, including what meaning the days hold. Having a service on Easter morning that celebrates the resurrection is not pagan at all, for such paschal services were held all throughout Christian lands since the second century AD at least, and which have nothing at all to do with these pagan traditions.
