Have you fallen into the trap of Halloween, for years as a young Christian I did but after getting filled with Holy Spirit that holiday became more and more unappealing. Attached is an article from Jamie Morgan Pastor of Life Church (Assemblies of God) in Williamstown, N.J. who explains this beautifully.


Here is just a few highlights from the article, please read the full article. We as Children of God cannot continue to partner or celebrate Satan and his holidays.


Setting aside a day to celebrate evil, darkness, witchcraft, fear, death and the demonic brings disdain to God.


The Scriptures tell us to put away deeds of darkness (Rom.13:12) and that light has nothing in common with darkness (2 Cor. 6:14). Is celebrating a dark holiday something a child of the light should be doing?


Witchcraft is clearly detestable to the Lord (Deut 18:10-13). Shouldn't something that glorifies witchcraft (just take a walk through the Halloween store) be detestable to me as well?


The Lord said in 2 Cor. 6:17, "Come out from them and be separate ... Touch no unclean thing ..." Doesn't God want His children to be set apart from the world and from sin and evil? Aren't we supposed to be peculiar people?


A Christian celebrating Halloween would be like a Satan worshiper putting up a nativity scene at Christmas while singing, "Happy Birthday, Jesus!" The two just don't go together. Jesus has nothing in common with Satan (2 Cor. 6:14), and neither should we.


Enough said read the article please.
