"How Can Christians Celebrate Halloween Without Feeling Guilty?"

Whether it’s a harvest festival, or a fall carnival, or a Haunted House or Judgement House, or something else entirely.....Many churches are making alternative Halloween activities available to their communities.

My question is what about you? Does your church provide a Halloween alternative? Why must (we) provide alternatives? I don’t believe there is any sound Biblical basis for Halloween… so why would there be any such basis for an ‘alternative?’ Why not, simply, “No?”

Christians Should Not Participate In Evil.

As of today we are 9 days away from a major pagan holiday called Halloween. It is my desire to share with you that Christians should not participate in this evil holiday. The scripture is very clear about those who practice and participate in events that are contrary to the will of our Lord Jesus! I submit to each and every Christian of every denomination to forsake the ways of this sinful world and follow Christ. Did you know that practicing or participating in Halloween activities will cause you to loose out on the Kingdom of God? Let’s look at what the book of Galatians talks about. Galatians 5:19-21 Did you know that we are mandated by scripture to choose between serving God (who is the Lord Jesus Christ) or the gods of this world. Let’s see what the book of Joshua states. Joshua 24:15. As parents, we are held responsible for the things our children learn and the bible mandates us to train them up in the ways of the Lord (we need to explain to them why they are not going to put on costumes and go trick or treating). Proverbs 22:6. when I was growing up, we really did not know any better. One thing when your 'e poor and don't have the money to buy Halloween costume for 10 children you just don't participate. My mother would paint our faces and dress us up in old clothes and take us around the neighborhood. My mother was a born again Christian who never had this explain to her. we really had no clue that these activities were displeasing to Jesus. It was not until I got older that I realized that such a holiday should be shunned by Christians all together. 2 Corinthians 6:17. We as Christian should Reject Halloween and say YES to the Lord.
