I highly recommend that you read this article on Halloween written by Brother Edwin Eby. Here is an excerpt from this article entitle American Halloween History and Celebration --Is God Okay with it? - "Is there is a difference between acknowledgement of a thing and acceptance? Yes! Paul and our apostolic elders recognized darkness as a reality; in like manner we concede Halloween as a day, a word, and a reality. We give assent that there is darkness and that there is a door to its realms. Men can access the powers of darkness. However, we refuse affiliations or willingness to accept its power or influence. As spiritual darkness saturates American and religious cultures; closeness to demons, the devil, and the obscurity of holiness in favor of openness to hellish darkness should be expected. As men invite the darkness of spiritual conflict and power, its fury is further invoked and permitted in their lives. This applies culturally and individually (2 Timothy 3:13)....."
Last evening our church had the opportunity of gathering on our street corner to sing and hand out tracts, CD's and gift packets to the many trick or treaters. It was such a blessing to shine the ligth of God in that way.
"The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light" Romans 13:12.
