Why I Do Not Engage in Halloween

bible image
People swarm to the party stores to purchase the scariest costumes and decorations in the name of fun.

Linked here is a: Post(video) by Mark Brown, sharing the history behind Halloween and how it came about.

I share his same values about Halloween and here's why:

In Yahweh's word, it tells us as the Body of Christ we are set apart:
Leviticus 20:26 (NLT)
You must be holy because I, the LORD, am holy. I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own. 
Luke 14:25-27 (NLT)
A large crowd was following Jesus. He turned around and said to them, “If you want to be my disciple, you must hate everyone else by comparison—your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple. And if you do not carry your own cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.
As Mark stated in the video; if I participate in Halloween I open the door to satan and the evil underworld allowing it into my life. That is the opposite of what Yahweh wants.

It is one thing to evangelize sharing the Gospel. It's another to dress up like some crazy character in the name of fun.

Our job as Disciples of Christ is to share the Gospel to win souls for Yahweh. This is something we are called to day every day, not just one or two days a year.

We need to step up. We need to take a stand against the evils that we face daily. Sure it is hard. No where in Yahweh's Word does it say life is easy.

No more luke warm or closet christianity. Either you are for Yahweh or you are against Him.

I challenge you to stand against evil and share the Gospel to win souls to Yahweh.

Let's chat. Leave me a comment.
