Halloween

We are back to that time of year when the Halloween decorations come out – cobwebs, ghosts, skeletons, tombstones, witches, etc.  I remember when I was growing up that there was the razor blade in candy or apples scare & I remember being too scared to go trick-or-treating beyond like 3 houses from my house.  So this is my problem with Halloween – why do we celebrate a holiday devoted to fear, creepiness & even death?  What’s good about any of those things?

Being afraid & creeped out in my life has done more damage than good.  So while I’m probably a lone ranger & politically incorrect on this, I don’t like this holiday & see no redeeming value in the current expression & celebration of this holiday.  With that being said, please be encouraged that tomorrow’ blog will be more uplifting 😀

Hi Sarah! Our church does a trunk or treat. We all fill our car trunks with good treats, games, etc. as well as Christ’s love, tracks, and spread the Word that Christ loves everyone.Many unsaved children come. it is a safe, fun place for everyone.We serve hot dogs and hamburgers, and drinks. Everyone, even the adults, look forward to it. God can get lots of milage, even out of a horrible holiday, the devil meant for evil.

I do not celebrate Halloween. The devil just uses it to lure children into the streets that are corrupt enough already.

Yah, and so Christmas (Santa) and Easter (Bunny Rabbit) everyone knows it was just a cover-up, but like some political parties – what a spin!. I think it’s a great time to expose evil (for what the ugly thing it is) and accentuate – rightousness =acts of kindness. It should be about Fall Festival & Families thanking God for our “great cloud of witnesses”! Most parents are afraid to be public about a heaven to gain and a hell to shun, and THE FACT that Jesus saved us from those natsy witches and goblins – THANK GOD!!!

I thought we dressed up evil like we do to scare away the evil spirits. But then again we are getting like them.
