Should Christians Celebrate Halloween?

Halloween is associated with darkness, witches, and death. It glorifies darkness, ghosts, witches, and wizards.

1 Corinthians 10:31b says "‭‭Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."

Ephesians 5:11 says ‭‭"Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them."

Don't welcome demons into your life or in your surroundings or your children's lives.

Halloween is a time for you to be more spiritually alert and pray against the works of darkness in your community. It is not the time for you to participate in it.

If you say you are a Christian, you cannot serve God who is the light and satan who embraces darkness at the same time. You cannot be an unbelieving Christian. Jesus said in Luke 4:8 "‭‭You must worship the Lord your God and serve only Him."

Jesus wants you to be the light of the world. ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:14‭ says “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden."

Matthew 5:16 says "In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your Heavenly Father."

Christian parents and caregivers have the responsibility to educate their children regarding the evil that comes with Halloween pumpkins, costumes, and the Trick-or-Treat tradition. Adults should likewise lead by example to the young ones. It's not the time you should start participating in a disco Halloween party.

Shine the light of God this season. Let all that you participate in this season give God glory. Let all that you do please God.

Stand out for Christ as a family!
Encourage your children to stand out for Christ!
Find ways to shine the light of Christ this season. Perhaps throw a light party? Have a prayer night? A Gospel worship music jamming session? Share Christian Tracts.

Let the Spirit of God guide you.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

God Bless You!

Yours in Christ,
