We borrowed “Rack, Shack and Benny” from the Church library a couple of weeks ago, and it has the infamous “Bunny Song” on it. No, it’s not the original, which had Mr. Nezzer singing “I won’t go to church and I won’t go to school…”, but it talked about it at the end. The comment was made by Phil Vischer that they learned that they couldn’t make the bad song a catchy tune.
Satan knows the power of catchy things. It’s part of the reason of the sexual onslaught that we face everywhere we turn. It’s also in the continual attempt to replace Christianity with other imagery. Santa Claus has remained the secular imprint of Christmas, but the Easter Bunny proves that people now associate it with Easter– and call Easter the holiday. Good thing it’s not “Christmas Claus!”
In both cases, Christians have an interesting moral dilemma. First off, the odds that Christmas was the true birthday of Jesus are not very good at all. Second, we know when in the Jewish Calendar Jesus was crucified (during Passover) and passover is now a month later than “Easter”. How do we figure out Easter?
It is very accurate? I don’t know– though I probably would like to see it bound to Passover, instead of a lunar calendar. In any case, I prefer Resurrection Sunday myself…
So, Happy Resurrection Sunday all of you– He is RISEN!
