The Christian And The Halloween Party

Halloween is historically, a Celtic pagan ritual to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead, hence the celebration of ghosts and ghouls with costumes.

Over the millennia, modern Halloween has become a day of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults. It has in recent time become an opportunity to engage in wild revelry and drunkenness in the name of entertainment.

Halloween is a real, sacred day for those who follow Wicca. (the religious name for witchcraft) In fact, it is one of two high and holy days for them. The Celtic belief of spirits being released is current, along with the worship of Samhain (the lord of death) – both are promoted as something to embrace on that day. To those who believe and follow the practices of witchcraft, Halloween means an opportunity to embrace the dark side of the spiritual world.

So what does God think about this?

Romans 13:13 (NLT)

Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don’t participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy.

1 Corinthians 10:21 (NLT)

You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord’s Table and at the table of demons, too.

Romans 12:2(NLT)

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Listen to the holy spirit. let him guide you.
