I hate halloween.


Period.


I hate the secularization of Christmas and ..pfft.. easter (even this name is a an honour to a pagan deity)  but there is NO redeeming feature to halloween. There is no Christian overlay at all as it is practiced here in NA.

And it is getting worse and worse. 

Extortion under threat is against all good morals ...except if it is halloween. It is totally in service of the god of greed, avarice and extortion. It is not a Christian holiday going wrong - it is a holiday in service to pagan gods which Christianity has not been able to civilize.
The problem as I see it is that we cannot fully isolate ourselves from the evil in this world.  Especially when you have children you soon begin to grasp how much of the world they are absorbing no matter how much you try to combate that evil.  This is why we never painted any holiday as "evil" per say in our children's lives but instead used the "evil" as an opportunity to teach them about God and the good that God brings out of ashes.  The goal is that when they see the evil, the skeletons and witches, they will be reminded that in Christ they are more than overcomers.

That being said, let me remind you that the church at one point used halloween as an opportunity to pray and what a wonderful thing it would be if churches around the world would return to that part of the "celebration of halloween" instead of hiding or judging, they gathered and prayed!

good post

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

Eph. 5:11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose and rebuke them.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -
