"Instead of hating evil, Americans toy with it. We toy with holidays like Halloween that were conceived in evil and that promote the "cute-ification" of evil, whether that evil takes the form of witchcraft, sorcery, ghoulishness, or some other form of malevolent imagery paraded before our children. We laugh at the very things that the Lord describes as 'abominations,' and we find ourselves obsessively fascinated by, and attracted to, all things dark... Yet the one fear that America is missing is a fear of the Lord. As a people, we no longer fear God. Because we do not fear God, we no longer hate evil (Proverbs 8:13Bible quoteThe fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.Proverbs 8 verse 13)." -Doug Phillips

No Christian young person OR adult has any business being a part of or going to anything having to do with Haunted Houses, fright fests or scare houses. At some point, a line has to be drawn in the sand and we draw that line from the word itself - Ephesians 5:11Bible quoteAnd have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [them].Ephesians 5 verse 11 -Christopher Gregory-

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose [them]. Ephesians 5:11

Glorifying Satan’s World of Death and Darkness

Writer: Betty Miller | bibleresources.org/halloween/

Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes. Song of Solomon 2:15

Foxes sometime in search of food would enter into the grape orchards and devour the grapes and spoil the crop. However, the little foxes were too small to reach the grape bunches so they would chew on the vines and it would kill the whole vine. Instead of the farmer just losing his crop, he would lose his vine which was more disastrous. Spiritually some things we do or allow, that we might think is little or insignificant, can also be disastrous for us.

Some may consider celebrating Halloween as only a little compromise. However, it is the "little foxes" that spoil the vines and this little compromise can open the door to other evils. Many Christians do not realize that certain traditions that are celebrated in the world have evil origins. Just because our society partakes in certain activities does not make them acceptable for Christians. We must look to Christ and His Word to see if the traditions of this world are good or evil.

"Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye." Mark 7:13

One very evil tradition is the celebration of Halloween. No Christian should partake in the activities of this holiday, nor should they allow their children to do so.

We can discern the evil of this day by taking a look at the festivities that are associated with its celebration. Children are dressed as witches, goblins, ghosts, little devils and fortune tellers. All these are representatives of Satan's kingdom. Games played at carnivalspromote fear in children as they are ushered through spook houses and horror rooms.

Skeletons, black cats and bats represent death and darkness. No carnival is complete without the gypsy who tells fortunes.

Satan has gained man's approval to celebrate his day by simply making it a tradition that seems like a fun day. The opposite is true, however, as more damage and harm are done on this day each year than any other holiday. Children are taught to go door to door chanting "trick or treat." It is unchristian to demand a gift under threat of playing some trick. Police are on the alert for juvenile vandalism and caution parents to be watchful.

Because so many of us have grown up celebrating Halloween, and seemingly did not experience any negative effects, some feel that not celebrating Halloween at all is an extreme measure. However, we would encourage you to pray about this. Is any holiday that glorifies death and darkness (even in fun) a proper thing for a Christian to do since we have been called out of darkness into His marvelous light?

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. 1 Peter 2:9

Most Satanists celebrate this as their high holy day and even offer human sacrifices to the devil.

Whether we feel that we have been really hurt by celebrating Halloween or not, is only part of the issue. How does God feel to see His people making light of demons and witchcraft? Shouldn't we be thinking about how to honor Him and show our love to Him? Where do our loyalties lie?

Until recently, most Christians have not questioned this traditional celebration, but rather have gone along with it by even bringing Halloween parties into the church.
