MORNINGTIME 2718
 
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. Matthew 28:5-7. THIS, is Pure Gospel. The TRUE story of the death, burial, AND RESURRECTION of Christ after being buried for 3 days. This is the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Capstone of His Ministry here on earth AND of Heaven after death. This Gospel story is preached around the world and is the biggest day of church attendance of people who, if they are going to ever go to church during the year, go on this Sunday. This Resurrection Message can be, and is used any time of the year during Preaching to remind us of how and why Salvation works. This is a GOOD thing. But AFTER this Resurrection Message is where the wheels fall off the wagon in the "church" today. Please read carefully. The resurrection of Christ will preach any time of the year, anywhere in the world. Let's move forward in the year and announce to the congregation that next Sunday, the first Sunday in November, we're going to have a full blown Easter Service, complete with an Easter egg hunt, chocolate bunnies, and a visit with the kids by the Easter Bunny, and people will think you've go a screw loose. They won't like it because it's not the right time of the year for that. THAT RIGHT THERE IS IDOL WORSHIP!!! And churches today don't care. The theology of "Easter" plays well to the crowds, attendance is up, and the plates are full. Who couldn't love that in church today. If you do a word study on where the word "Easter" actually came from, you'd never again put the word "Easter" and the story of the  Resurrection of Christ together in the same sentence, ever again. That's mixing Christ, and Paganism together, and that will NEVER, Be Blessed.
