    Thank you for this well researched article. It was very enlightening and shows how the church has merged with paganism.

    Wow. Thank you for such an informative and eye opening article.
    I have felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit to move away from all of this celebration of Halloween, how ever fun and innocent we have tried to make it.
    I’m thankful for a discerning sprint that helps lead me in the way of truth.

    The story of the ghost friend being sent home with the young boy is a clear case for homeschooling. If this wasn’t a government school (I would be surprised if it wasn’t) even private Christian schools are getting increasingly influenced by the culture.

    How to deal with evil?
    Deuteronomy 7:When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;2 And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.5 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.6 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

    Handing out candy and tracts is still participating.. Seriously ask ourselves as believers why is it so hard to give it up completely. No rationalization,no justifying no tweeking any of it just let it go!???? Is there a stronger strong hold then we care to admit?? The word of
    God is clear! He does not encourage us to dabble in any of it no matter how we would like to redesign it.. Again ask yourself why is it so hard to give it up?? Pray for discernment….

    Thank you for doing the research and write up about this. When I was in my early twenties, Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel did a video series on the dangers of Halloween that changed my mind about my involvement / practice of it. I saw my cousin posting photos on Facebook of her daughter dressed up in a homemade costume that took a lot of work for them both to make, a character that a “Christian” should not personify. Yet, “Christians” are doing everything pagan. The early Church writers said that their “Christians” in their day were practicing the Winter festivals more than the pagans with their wreaths, and lamps. The Bible, especially the prophets of the OT talked a lot about how the Iraelites and Jews had adopted the practices of the pagans and incorporated it along with their worship of God. well, God doesn’t want to share worship along side the pagan stuff. This is why I have also given up the Catholic holiday “christmas”. We’ve adopted all the pagan stuff with it: tree, wreath, lights, gifts for ourselves. If someone from another country that was unfamiliar with our christmas trees, they’d wonder if it was an idol because of the way we decorate it and set it in the midst of our homes with pride. I don’t practice any of the holidays of the Catholic church because they merged pagan with christian to appeal to the lust of the pagans and frankly our own. we’ve got to give it all up and focus on what our Lord Jesus commanded us to do.

    Our Christian school has a trunk or treat day. Members of the church contribute candy and treats, which are placed in the trunks of cars. The students wear costumes of Biblical characters and visit each car to get their treats. In Mexico the end of October is called the Day of the Dead. Families picnic in the cemeteries to be with their dead loved ones, something Protestants do not do. Basically, Halloween celebrates death and the occult. No believers should participate in Halloween. On Halloween we would stay home and hand out candy and Christian tracts to the trick-or-treaters who came to our door.
