WCG Boasts of Easter Service

The July 2007 edition of Together (Worldwide Church of God News) had the following story:

Bengali Easter celebration

On Easter, the Bengali Evangelical Association held a Bengali-language celebration in Loma Linda, CA. The service was organized with other Bengali leaders as a sanctuary to the many Bengalis in the Los Angeles area who feel in need of a spiritual home base.

Dr. John Biswas, a WCG elder (right), is looked on by the Bengali people in Southern California as their pastor and leader and has been pressured to organize this sort of gathering in their own language and culture, hence this Easter service and social gathering.

Of course, the early Church observed Passover.  It was essentially because of cowardice and compromise with paganism that Easter replaced Passover for the majority of those who claimed some version of Christianity.  Three articles of possible interest could include:

Passover and the Early Church Did the early Christians observe Passover? What did Jesus and Paul teach?
Did Early Christians Celebrate Easter? If not, when did this happen? What do scholars and the Bible reveal?
History of Early Christianity Are you aware that what most people believe is not what truly happened to the true Christian church?
