Biblical Christianity Confronts the Dawn Goddess – by Richard Rives

The renowned Oxford English Dictionary informs us that the name Easter is derived from the name of a goddess whose festival was celebrated at the time of the vernal equinox. We are told that she was originally known as the dawn goddess – no doubt the origin of sunrise celebrations at the time of Easter.

According to Venerable Bede, a seventh century Anglo-Saxon theologian, the English word Easter is derived from the name of the pagan fertility goddess Eostra. He tells us that “the heathen Anglo-Saxons called the fourth month “Esturmonath” after their goddess Eostra – another name representing the spring fertility goddesses such as Astarte or Ashtaroth, the goddess who was introduced into the British Isles by the Druids. In all actuality Easter is just another Continue Reading

Easter – by Richard Rives


The English word Easter is derived from the names “Eostre” – “Eastre” – “Astarte” or Ashtaroth. Astarte was introduced into the British Isles by the Druids and is just another name for Beltis or Ishtar of the Chaldeans and Babylonians.

The book of Judges records that “the children of Israel did evil …in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, …and forsook the LORD, and served not Him.”

Easter is just another name for Ashteroth “The Queen of Heaven.” Easter was not considered a “Christian” festival until the fourth century.

Time is the Ally of Deceit – Book and 5 DVD Study Series


Join Richard Rives, author of the book Too Long in the Sun, for an overview of historical events that led to the abandonment of Biblical precepts and their replacement by Traditional Christianity.



Today Contemporary Christianity has not only allowed truth to fall, but it has thrown truth in the street as a gesture of religious tolerance and compromise. It has given the adversaries of scripture exactly what they need to substantiate their claims that what most present as Christianity is nothing more than redefined pagan mythology. Educated theologians know that; yet they continue to present a compromised gospel filled with pagan tradition that never had anything to do with Christ. There has never been a more important time in the history of mankind for those called out as servants of our Creator to confront the philosophy and vain deceit that would lead people away from our Savior.

Easter – Acts Chapter 12 King James Version, a common sense investigation



The King James version of the Bible is an excellent translation.  It is based on thousands of manuscripts that agree with each other, rather than on the corrupt manuscripts, which are the basis of most modern versions of the Bible.

In my opinion, it is the best, widely available, English version of the scriptures.   It is the English translation that I use and that I recommend to others.


Few people know that the translators of the King James version of the Bible were working under constraints.  Continue Reading
