No to Halloween!


To witches, Halloween is a festival of the dead and represents the end and the beginning of the witches year. It marks the beginning of the death & destruction associated w/winter..the power of the underworld is unleashed, and spirits are supposedly freed to roam about the earth; it is considered the best time to contact spirits. - Regina Tyndall via Facebook

The apostle Paul said Witchcraft is one of the acts of the sinful nature and those who practice it will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:16-21; see also Revelation 22:15). Webster's New Millennium™ Dictionary of English says of Samhain: October 31, Halloween; a day of celebration for Wiccans and other pagans; also called November Eve, Hallowe'en, Feast of Souls, Feast of the Dead. (Webster's New Millennium™ Dictionary of English, Preview Edition


Never did God say, "Take the Asherah poles and idols and make them into holy monuments to me. Take back for me their high places and sacred groves. Place my relics upon their altars. Redeem the pagan shrines for me. Use them for my glory." Rather, He said, "Abstain from all appearance of evil." 1 Thess. 5:22 "...let us put aside the deeds of darkness..." Ro. 13:12 and "Touch no unclean thing..." 2 Cor. 6:17

I'm right there with you, sister! Our town celebrated tonight, so we left home and watched movies at daddy's office. Then tomorrow is round two. I just can't wait until it's over. We'll be talking about Martin Luther tomorrow.

This is our first year not doing halloween. The chilren decided last year (after I explained why I didn't like it AND their father finally admitted the witchcraft connection) that they wouldn't do it this year. They are 13, 11 and 8. To make it easier my husband is in hospital, not trying to encourage them to get into costumes and go out.

What are your thoughts to providing an alternative way spend Halloween? Friends of ours host a harvest party every year for homeschooling families, which includes a Thanksgiving-type meal and potluck (including prayer), games, and fellowship. Costumes are encouraged, but no one is allowed to dress in anything "dark": no creeps, goblins, witches, villains, etc. I know some Christians believe any kind of observance, even an "anti" observance is wrong. I would appreciate your view because I am very likeminded with you. Thanks!
