Happy Reformation Day

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…

  1. Bloody Halloween is spreading. Even here in Denmark some people
    do it, and some insist that it has always been so – not true. Why must
    we all emulate the USAmericans? I get photos from my family in
    Australia of people in Halloween costumes. Pretty soon we’ll all rejoice
    on July 4. Aaargh.

  2. Personally, I love the way the evangelicals think that they have a special corner on the Christian concept of salvation, and discount the 1.2 billion Catholics, and the rest of the world who isn’t Christian (at least not sufficiently so in the minds of the evangelicals). It’s really hard for me to respect a guy who called reason the harlot of the devil (Martin Luther), regardless of what other good ideas he may have had.

    As to Halloween, come on, it’s all in good fun.
