In the scriptures, the Lord condemns sorcery and witchcraft. These practices have been going on since creation. In the book of Revelation, we are told by Jesus that those who practice the magic arts will not inherit the kingdom of God. Revelation 17 also tells us that the Vatican has effectively deceived the world with it’s ‘sorceries’.
Halloween, in my opinion, is glorifying witchcraft, sorcery, death and the demonic.
Christians are told that we cannot share the cup of Christ and the cup of demons at the same time.
Some denominations in the churches will have what they call ‘an alternative’ to participating in Halloween. I feel that not participating AT ALL is best. We are to have no appearance of evil and participating in an ‘alternative’ still sends a mixed message to the world (in my opinion). Each church body that offers an alternative anwers to the Lord and the Lord knows their hearts and motives, however, I do not feel comfortable with any sort of acknowledgment of Halloween, alternatives or not. Would Yeshua, our Messiah, ever advocate a Halloween alternative or acknowledge it in any way? I don’t think so.
Jesus tells His body to ‘come out and be separate’ from the world. Halloween glorifies witchcraft, Satanism, sorcery and death. What fellowship does Light have with darkness???
