Now here come my long waiting (well, was it that long?) post that all of you are waiting for!
Let's take it from this perspective and point, I'll be bold to start with, "Should Christians in the first place 'even' celebrate Halloween?" Number one, doesn't the word Halloween sound to you like something spooky or dark? It does to me. Therefore, doesn't the bible state that we as Christians should be the light in this world and not fellowship with the dark? Halloween is a day set aside to worhip Satan and the darkness. It's a holiday which glorifies the darkness of this world rather than what I said a few sentences ago, the light of Jesus Christ.
As believers, we are called to "Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil. [1 Thesalonians 5:21-22] Who can deny that virtually all of the symbols of Halloween are evil? Witches, monsters, ogres, vampires, ghosts, ghouls, goblins, devils and demons all portray evil. Christians are to "... have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." [Ephesians 5:11] Many Christians don't see this, all they see is the fun in going trick-or-treating and dressing up in funny'n cute costumes i.e. princess, pumpkin, Winnie the Pooh and so on. All this is fine, dressing up in cute costumes is ok, as long as there is always a healthy perspective on things. However, it's when you go out at night on October 31 and when you assosiate and encourage this holiday. You may think, "Oh, there's nothing wrong with having a little bit of fun tonight." Well, a little bit of fun can lead into a little bit of ruin. Ringing the doorbell of many homes and celebrating that night and the darkness which is often hid behind all the 'fun' is nothing but Halloween. While you may have participated "all in fun," be assured, Halloween is serious business for Satanists and witches.
Believe me, I have done Halloween before when growing up as a small girl. It wasn't until my parents woke up and saw the real meaning behind all of this darkness and evil. The world portrays it is a cute holiday, and when you reach my age (16) you don't dress up in those cute costumes anymore, it's more of the dead, bloody, witches, disgusting monsters etc. Sadly, little children don't know the difference if you yourself as a parent does Halloween. When Christians participate in Halloween, it sends a message to children that witchcraft, demonism, Satanism, and the occult are something fun, entertaining and harmless.
But what exactly is wrong with Halloween? It does not have even one single redeeming virtue. It is custom born out of pagan superstition. It is a demon-inspired, devil-glorifying, occult festival. It is an evening holy unto evil, death, and divination. The Scriptures tells us to "Abstain from all appearance of evil." [1Thess. 5:22] You may think it's just an innocent fun thing to do to gather candy and to dress up in goofy costumes. My friends, no, Halloween is of the Enemy, he puts this lie into your mind to trick you that it's fun and harmless. It's the night of death, of ghosts, of monsters, of goblins, of wicked and disgusting things! The Lord gives us wisdom and guiding to stay far away from all this evil. Take not my word, but what the bible has to say about it. But we only do this in fun...we don't practice witchcraft," those things that represent Satan and his domain cannot be handled or emulated "for fun". Such participation places you in enemy and forbidden territory and that is dangerous ground.
Do not participate into the evil this year, abstain from it all and cling to the Lord Jesus. There are numerous things you can do that evening. One year I remember that my family and I did an
'orange night', meaning, we dressed up all in orange and eating all orange foods. Or we have passed out witnessing tracks hidden within the candy. It's up to you what you will do this Halloween. Will you follow the world and just try to fit in with just a cute innocent costume? Or will you stand the ground for the Lord and fight the battle that evil night of the dead? It's your choice.
