    The problem with praying to saints obviously is they are not God. The Bible tells us to only worship and pray to God directly, not via sinners who died centuries ago.

    Poor Easter Bunny - and poor Christmas Tree.
    They are both as unbiblical as hell!

    I happen to be a Catholic

    And I am opposed to quite a few things that are regarded as typically Catholic.

    Here are just 2 of them

    - that priests are not allowed to marry
    - that women are not allowed to become priest - or bishop - or Pope - or whatever - in the Catholic Church

    Hell is 100% Biblical. See the "lake of fire" in Revelation.

    The Easter Bunny is not a Christian tradition. Pagans celebrated the beginning of spring hundreds or thousands of years before Jesus was born. As for Christmas trees, it was the Catholic Church's idea that Jesus was born on December 25 despite Biblical evidence he was actually born in late September.

    Some place where all those babies go who died before they could be baptized

    But I never believed in that!

    Are they pagan?

    Well well, we 'll just have to live with that if we want to earn our Easter eggs.

    Why are these traditions so ingrained in Easter Sunday? And what do they have to do with the resurrection of Jesus? Well, to be frank, nothing.

    Bunnies, eggs, Easter gifts and fluffy, yellow chicks in gardening hats all stem from pagan roots. These tropes were incorporated into the celebration of Easter separately from the Christian tradition of honoring the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead.

    According to the University of Florida's Center for Children's Literature and Culture, the origin of the celebration - and the origin of the Easter Bunny - can be traced back to 13th-century, pre-Christian Germany, when people worshiped several gods and goddesses.

    The lake of fire is not hell, otherwise hell would not be thrown into the lake of fire, along with death...neither of which can literally burn, so the lake of fire must be symbolic of something else...what happens when you throw something into the fire? It is destroyed...just as hell and death will be....second death is everlasting destruction...

    "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." Revelation 20:14 KJV
    "For whoever becomes ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of man will also be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. Mark 8:38
