A few more facts about Easter dates

I found the recent article by Cory Regnier regarding Easter dates to be very interesting.
The truth of the matter is that this word, "Easter," (a pagan festival based on fertility rites), was removed from the King James Bible after it was discovered and changed by the translators. In Greek, the word for Passover is Pascha (Acts 12:4). One doesn't have to be Jewish to understand this, either.
It seems as though the tradition has been around for many, many years and we should know what traditions of men do to the Word of God. We have the choice, whether we want to be children of light or of darkness. Pascha, or Passover, occurs the same time every year based on the vernal equinox, which is our March 20-21.
The Hebrew calendar has Nissan at the beginning of the Sacred Year which starts in the middle of our March, and then 14 days of Preparation, ending in our month of April Passover celebration.
There isn't anything tricky about that. Understand that the Easter celebration is different each year, being it is based on Lunar activity.
Christianity is not a religion. It is reality. The word Christian was born around 58 A.D. (the death of Peter) when bishop Linus was the first bishop of the Catholic Church. By the way, it was not the Roman Catholic Church at that time. That was born around 600 A.D., when the first pope entered the scene. You must remember that the word Christian came about in the Book of Acts (it can be found at Acts 11:26).
Previous to this time, it was always known as "The Way" to followers of Christ. The golden age of Christianity came to nil around 600 A.D. Mohammed came about around 700 A.D. People should also be aware that A.D. is Anno Domeni, which is from the birth of Christ, not the death of Christ.
