Hope for Halloween

We’ve been bombarded since late August with Halloween decorations on store shelves and horrific films are released like a hoard of zombies headed towards the box office.ย  It’s easy to lose sight of God’s goodness during this extended season of glorifying gore.ย  I want to stop and remember that God’s kingdom will stand, the darkness will never extinguish the light.

God bless you!

  1. What do you think of the whole Christmas is pagan and debates that go on every year I mean while Christians debate people are going to hell I think itโ€™s a distraction from Satan to keep us from reaching the lost you agree?

    1. If you are celebrating the birth of Jesus, the Son of God – entering the world to take our place of punishment and conquer death…I don’t see how that is pagan. There may be some traditions that were pagan or simply not ordered by God or simply don’t bring glory to God, but I don’t think a believer who likes Frosty the Snowman is in peril of Hell fires. Basically, I’m not very concerned with the pagan aspects of Christmas if my actions are intended to glorify God. Also, God forgives my ignorance if I was accidentally treading in pagan rituals. Every must live according to their convictions.

      1. Yes but every year we have more important things to do we need to be focused on sharing the Gospel people are going to hell and all of us debating is Christmas pagan is pointless agree?

  2. Thank you for your post. I know what you mean, Halloween can feel bit too dark and certainly some people take it too far. As for me, I enjoy it. I go for some of the horror movies too. It’s all in fun, and I don’t take it very seriously. It’s like the apostle Paul said about eating meat sacrificed to idols–and, of course, I’m paraphrasing–If it feels wrong to you don’t do it, but if you’re hungry and it doesn’t try your conscience feel free to partake.
    It can be a thin line and perhaps I should, as a Christian, stay away from it, but it doesn’t try my conscience. That said, I much prefer Christmas. That’s my favorite holiday.
    God’s Blessings.

    1. I don’t mind horror films, but the unique focus on gore during Halloween can disorient believers from the goodness of God. I’m not much for “one size fits all” conduct codes for Christians. I actually have a fascination for the Hollywood depiction of demon possession because the unchurched draw their theology from movies. I agree Christmas is better!

  3. I can’t thank you enough for this post–I’ll be so glad when Halloween is over for another year! And, HUGE thanks for visiting my blog so that I would know you’re here–it’s wonderful to meet another “brother”…though I suspect you’re so young that you’ll be another “nephew” for me to collect! May God bless you and your family so abundantly as we get closer to the “real, meaningful” holidays–Thanksgiving and Christmas, yippeeee! ๐Ÿ™‚ Truly, God will not allow the gates of hell to prevail, Praise His Name–JESUS.
