This is unbelievable. A church has been forced to remove the word “Jesus” from its Easter signs, because it has been causing offence. Elim Church on the Central Coast in New South Wales paid for digital signs to be displayed at Erina Fair shopping centre reading “the greatness of His Power!”
Pastor Martin Duffy told 2FB radio that shopping centre manager Lendlease objected to the signs and forced them to be changed to read «Risen Christ» instead of «Jesus». The shopping centre manager requested to withdraw the word “Jesus” from the sign as it may have offended shoppers and non-Christians.
The sign was an advertisement for a free community event being held on the waterfront at Gosford. “The greatness of His Power!” and “Jesus is Alive!” the sign read.
t something new. This Anti-Christ campaign has been going on for decades. In Norway, in the late 80s and early 90`s we saw many churches being burned. One by one. Coincidence? Not at all. This Anti-Christ campaign has been going on for a long time. About 20 years ago there were a war on Christmas and a war on Easter in the U.S.
The Evil elite want Easter banned, claiming that Easter and Jesus is too offensive. This is ridiculous.
Last year, the Church of England accused the National Trust of “airbrushing faith” after it dropped the word “Easter” from the name of the long-standing egg hunt, according to telegraph.co.uk.
The annual event, which sees hundreds of thousands of children search for chocolate eggs at National Trust properties, had previously been called an “Easter Egg Trail,” with the name being changed to the “Great British Egg Hunt” in 2017.
Now, the National Trust has reintroduced Easter to its annual Cadbury`s egg hunt after a public outcry over it removing religious references from the event. Shopping Centre manager Lendlease have also change the mindset.
Last year, furious shoppers have blasted Cadbury’s and Nestle for missing the word Easter off their chocolate eggs, threatening to boycott the brands, but both companies insist there has been no «deliberate decision» to drop the word from their packaging, with Cadbury saying the word Easter is embossed on the actual egg.
When did someone try to stop a little girl wearing a T-shirt with this sign: WTF? There are thousands of similar T-shirts. Do non-christians really care, and how many are they? Do they celebrate Easter? Do they celebrate Christmas?
The new testament states that the resurrection of Jesus, which Easter celebrates, is a foundation of the Christian faith. The resurrection established Jesus as the powerful Son of God, and is cited as proof that God will judge the world in righteousness.
Easter customs vary across the Christian world, and include sunrise services, exclaiming the Paschal greeting, clipping the church, and decorating Easter eggs (symbols of the empty tomb).
Additional customs that have become associated with Easter and are observed by both Christians and some non-Christians include egg hunting, the Easter Bunny, and Easter parades. There are also various traditional Easter foods that vary regionally. So is it with Christmas and holiday season.
Will you celebrate?
