A little girl dressed up as a princess and a little boy as Superman. Pumpkin faces aglow on the front porch and cobwebs streaming from the rafters. Neighborhood children ringing doorbells and giggling when the door is answered with a loud, “BOO!” Just a night of innocent fun, right?
Unfortunately, that is what many say about Halloween. However, ignoring the witchcraft, horror, necromancy and death associated with it does not make it harmless. The evil overtones speak loudly. So, why do we celebrate it at all? Why are we willing to give retailers more than 8 billion dollars per year to celebrate it? Why are we desensitizing our children to violence, horror, and death? We are certainly aware that it is a pagan holiday; there are no religious overtones at all unless it is the worship of Satan. All is witchcraft, evil spirits, ghosts and death. Most of us understand that the origin of Halloween is dark and demonic, involving ancient pagan ceremonies that ended even with human sacrifice.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:11
If you would like to understand the full history behind this pagan holiday, and understand why CHRISTIANS SHOULD NOT PARTICIPATE in any aspect of it, we have published a wonderful, easy-to-read book that gives you all the information you need to shun this holiday completely and all that is associated with it. For example:
- Do you know why we wear costumes on Halloween? The answer is truly repulsive.
- What is the origin of the bonfire (bone-fire)?
- Why do we “Trick or Treat?” There is a shocking answer.
- Read about the Jack-O-Lantern and you will never carve a pumpkin again.
- How about black cats?
- What about witches? Unfortunately, a majority of teenagers believe in witchcraft.
You will learn all this and much, much more in the book, The Dark Side of Halloween, by David L. Brown, who has spent decades researching this pagan holiday. Most families have no idea about the diabolical overtones of Halloween and the influence it has on our young people. It is such a great little book to give this time of year and there is time to order before that dreadful night is here. Ordering information is below:
