Has anyone noticed that halloween is growing in popularity over the last
few years? It seems that this night of begging for treats and
masquerading as all manner of devils, demons, witches and such like has
gained in popularity to the point where merchandizing begins to rival
that previously only seen in the Christmas season.

Now people talk about "getting into the spirit" of the "holiday" and
while that’s something that would once have horrified most people, today
it’s not only very much the opposite, but people today don’t understand
when a Bible believing Christian points out that halloween has it’s
origins in satanic rituals and conceeds power and authority to satan
that he has no right to.

Of course, as soon as you mention it’s evil origins, you get labeled a
nutcase. People tell you that it’s "just a fun holiday" and that you
need to relax and go with the spirit of the holiday.

The problem is that not only do they not know what that spirit is,
they’re so willfully blind to it’s true nature that they’ll happily
follow it to hell and never know the truth of their mistake until
judgement day. Of course, it’ll be too late to change their minds by
then. Now THAT qualifies as a "worst nightmare" if anything ever
did!

Christians are expected to set an example for the rest of the world and
every time one of us celebrates or takes part in something like
halloween, we’re failing the people around us as well as God Allmighty.
People who call themselves followers of Jesus should have no part of a
"holiday" that celebrates and gives power to the evil one.
