This Friday many of you will have young, disguised guests come to your door. They think they are in need of treats, but they’re in need of so much more…the gospel of Jesus Christ! Let me encourage you to insert yourself into the normal rhythms of life, to include the Halloween festivities, so that you may share your faith with others. This is at the very heart of what it means to be gospel-centric. They’re coming to your door…this is inevitable…the question is: are you ready to love them (i.e. by giving to them candy) and then point them to the One who died for them? Watch this short, three-minute video to gain some valuable insight on street-level Christianity and Halloween:
One thought on “Toward a Christian Approach to Halloween”
I would think that it would be better to provide a Christian alternative to Halloween, which by the way is the second highest Satanic holiday. I am of the opinion, as stated in 1st Corinthians 10:20-21:
“(1Co 10:20) But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
(1Co 10:21) Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
Having been a Satanic Priest in the past, I respectfully disagree on this point.
May the Lord guide you and keep you.
