Teaching God's Word with Love...
(Elder Florence M. Johnson)
Many people celebrate Halloween. They allow their children to wear costumes and knock on stranger’s doors begging for candy, considering it all harmless fun. It’s not. God is real and so is His enemy, Satan. Halloween is nothing to celebrate.
Celebrating Halloween is flirting with evil, a flirtation God warns us to avoid. He tells us in Deuteronomy 18:10-11 to stay away from forms of evil like horoscopes, sorcery and witchcraft. Remember that the devil is sneaky. Allowing your child to pretend to be a ghost at Halloween may seem harmless but in reality, such things can open supernatural doors that are better left closed.
Halloween originated with an ancient festival called Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. It became a special, unholy holiday for people who practice witchcraft and satanic worship. Why would we want our children to celebrate that?
I flirted with evil for many years. I celebrated Halloween, played with Ouija boards, watched countless horror movies and ended up in a terrifying battle with forces of evil! Unlike TV, I couldn’t turn the channel. This was real. Thanks be to God, I survived. (Read Tales of the Supernatural, by F. M. Johnson, and watch my televised, 700 Club testimony.)
Halloween? No! Instead, stay connected with the only supernatural power that loves us, protects us, saves us and offers the gift of everlasting life: God (John 3:16 | Romans 10:9-13).
