With Halloween this week, we thought it would be a good time to tackle the subject even further. We posted about Halloween earlier in the month but this time we did a full show about it.
Here are the notes followed by the video:
Halloween for Christians – How “Being Normal” is Misguiding Believers
It’s commonplace to celebrate Halloween and other pagan rituals, but they aren’t as harmless as most seem to believe.
Romans 12:2 – (ESV)
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
The Truth About Halloween
According to many scholars, All Hallows’ Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain. Other academics maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.
3 John 1:11 – (ESV)
Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God.
2 Corinthians 4:2-6 – (KJV)
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Halloween might seem like a harmless holiday that gives children candy and allows adults a reason to frolic, but it represents a clear deterioration of society.
