I hope none of you are, or have been participating in the Satanic festival known as “Halloween.” Your Origins Matter explains why:
It is perhaps an appropriate time, therefore, for Christians and others to think about the fires of hell and those who will be there. Those who go there include not only ‘the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters’ but also ‘the fearful, and unbelieving, . . . and all liars.’ The ‘fearful’ refers especially to those who are afraid to take a stand for Christ and ‘liars’ refers especially to those false teachers who spread lies about Christ and His saving gospel. The sin of unbelief is the one unforgivable sin, for ‘he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God’ (John 3:18).”
What should be a Christian’s approach to Halloween? Wouldn’t it make more sense for Christians to celebrate October 31st as the day (in AD1517) that God providentially prompted Dr. Martin Luther to hammer his 95 Theses onto the Wittenberg church door, launching the back-to-the-Bible revival that became known as the Protestant Reformation?
Personally I didn’t, but I just don’t like to dress up. Maybe I’ll have to next year…
