Easter celebrates the most significant event in the Catholic religion. Easter is the “punchline” of 1 Peter 3:15 (New International Version, NIV of the Bible), “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope which you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” It is the celebration of Jesus Christ after his sacrifice on the cross. Specifically, it is the celebration of His resurrecting Himself from the dead, proving He was God.
The reason that Jesus Christ’s words are more important than anyone else in the history of the world is because He is God. He created the universe and says there is life after death where justice for what we did on this earth will be carried out. Those that followed the commandments of God and the clarifications and tightening of those commands to perfection by Jesus Christ and who make themselves a part of His Mystical body on earth being His hands and body on earth to help everyone on earth to find Him in the Catholic Church (through both physical and technical – internet, radio, and TV, missionary work) and live a good life with the hope of eternal life (1 Corinthians 12:12-31), will live in eternal satisfaction, joy and happiness for all eternity. Those who did not, will suffer an eternity of pain and dissatisfaction.
Once, it was a gift reserved only for the Jewish people and their descendants but when they rejected the long-awaited Messiah, predicted in the Old Testament by crucifying Him, He offered salvation to the rest of the world. Today there are 1.2 billion practicing the Catholic religion and over 2 billion total (including those in the Catholic religion, which broke up into different sects following similar philosophies, no longer in the religion Jesus Christ started, rebelling and protesting against dogma that was held for over 1500 years, a millennia and a half, lead by a disgruntled Augustinian monk named Martin Luther) at last count following Jesus Christ’s philosophy. Unfortunately, we cannot determine how God wishes to be worshiped and what dogmas we need to believe and adhere to, probably to the everlasting regret of even “neo-modernist” Catholics who believe in and immanent God as opposed to the transcendent one always believed by all orthodox Catholics until about 1970. As saint Paul states even as translated by the protestant New King James Version of the bible in Galatians 1:8 “But even if we, or and angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.”
