Is Halloween for Christians?
Halloween – a word that should strike disgust (or at least dislike) in the hearts and mouths of every true Christian. What are you doing to prepare and protect your family from the onslaught of evil painted good and fun that is probably already assaulting them and is stronger during the next two calendar weeks than at any other time of the year?
It is appalling to me that a celebration that has at it’s roots visitation from the dead (which the Bible clearly denounces as witchcraft) is now described by wikipedia and other info-relating places on the web as “most commonly observed by western-Cristians and many non-Cristians around the world.”
How is it possible that Christians have become so much like the world that the world now attributes one of it’s most horrific celebrations to us!!!
I was prepared to write a post today about where Halloween originated, why we don’t celebrate it with traditions or decorations and why you shouldn’t either, but Penny Lane of Sisters Raising Sisters beat me to the punchline. And to be honest, Hero and I agree with each point and I couldn’t have said it any better myself. So, I hope you’ll jump on over and read her article “Is Halloween for Christians?” Whatever side of the discussion you fall on, I think you’ll find her opinion quite thought provoking.
Then be sure to come back by here tomorrow, because I’ll be sharing about what Halloween is and does here on the other side of the border: “Halloween in Mexico“.
