I posted this article about a year ago. It deals with Halloween, the Twilight series, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and more. If you have not read it, I encourage you to do so.
If you still think Halloween is cute and “just for fun”, please open your eyes to what is going on in our culture, please read this and please consider what you are doing before the Lord. We are called to be separated unto the Lord. Being friends with the world and doing what they do will not make you a better testimony. James 4:4 …know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?… It will actually please the world to have you join their works of darkness because if you approve their evil they feel justified in continuing in it. John 3:19-20 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. No excuse you can come up with justifies observing a celebration that is “wholly given to idolatry” (Acts 17:6) – in this case, witchcraft, paganism and the occult!
Note: By “observing” I mean participating in the traditions and customs specific to this “holiday”. Handing out Gospel tracts to those who come to the door is up for debate. Some Christians don’t wish to participate in any way, which I understand and my family has done. To others it seems useful for spreading the Gospel message, and my family has done this at times as well.
In Titus 2:10-12 we’re told regarding servants’ behavior that their lives should adorn the doctrine of God. …that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; All believers are (or should be) servants of God. Obviously, it is right that all our lives should adorn sound doctrine as the next verses indicate. How does the celebration of a Satanic “holiday” adorn the doctrine of God?
2 Corinthians 6:14 and 17 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?…Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
Ephesians 5:11-17 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
