Easter Time Again
Well, once again it's that time where certain believers get all in an uproar over Easter and Easter egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, crosses, and Cadbury eggs. They become divisive as well as militant in their attempt to silence anyone who disagrees with their weird and messed up theology. Here's my thoughts, get over it. Salvation is not, nor ever has been based on what you ate, celebrated, did or did not participate in. The fact is, every man is accountable for his own walk, but never are we to judge another believer for their own personal conviction. Remember, convictions are PERSONAL, not corporate. Grace trumps law each and every time. I grew up in a small Pentecostal church and we celebrated Easter, egg hunts and yet it was never about "things", but about the one who rose from the grave on the third day - Jesus Christ.
Colossians 2:16-17 ... Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
Hebrews 6:1 ... Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Romans 14:4 ... Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.❤
