What is Halloween and why do we celebrate it?
Halloween is an old Celtic holiday brought to North America from Ireland celebrated by real witches and Druids and people who practice pagan witchcraft and sorcery. Another name for this holiday is Samhain or All Hallows Eve.Today it is celebrated by pagans and real modern day witches and their magic is real.
More than a time of pretend, it is truly a serious matter.The stores use this dark holiday of real dark spirits and witch festivity to make lots of money by making it a day for children to wear costumes and get candy. This looks like fun and people get a kick out of the fear factor. In reality this holiday comes from very evil roots and pagan traditions so it is not right for us as Christians to do these sort of things. We are not to have fellowship with darkness.
1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Sorcery looks really awesome the way they make it look in the movies, books and on television but this is how they lure kids to celebrate Halloween. The truth is that all their magic comes from the same place which is the Devil who is an expert at lying and tricking people and luring people to do what is wrong. People think they are doing something harmless and fun but this is not true. There is no white magic or good magic, it is all demonic and evil. God who is good does not want us to have anything to do with witches, ghosts and wizardry.
Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
Deuteronomy 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Deuteronomy 18:12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Leviticus 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
I just celebrate Halloween. What should I do now?
You can ask God for forgiveness and next year you can do something else like stay at home at watch a documentary or movie that has nothing to do with Halloween. You can pray for other people in your town who don’t know the truth about Halloween and tell them about how Halloween is not really good for Christians to get involved with. You can also get good candy that is GMO free and/or organic and tape them to gospel tracts and then pass them out next year and instead of trick-or-treating.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
