Th Christian and Halloween.

Here’s a great tract from Grace To You concerning how Christians should deal with Halloween.

It seems this time of the year brings out the worst in us Christians. One camp will throw mud at the other for participating in a pagan ritual while the other slams the other for not walking boldly in their Christian liberty. Oy.

Hopefully this will make heads or tails out of it for you.

    I am a Biblical Studies major at a Christian university and we had some really interesting discussions in class as we approached Halloween. Most of the faculty and students at the school are Christian and yet it was fascinating to observe the wide range of ideas concerning the best way to deal with Halloween.

    Thanks for providing the link to the article at Grace to You. I appreciated its rational and truth-based take on the whole thing – be IN the world, but not OF it.

    I don’t have children and live in an apartment, so Halloween kind of comes and goes with comment most years, but when we do have a family, I intend to address Halloween with my husband and children boldly and lovingly, using this kind of wisdom and God’s will to direct our specific activities… I’m actually really looking forward to it!

    That is an excellent article. I’m planning to pass the link on to others. I especially liked the section on Christian response and the line, “Evil spirits are no more active and sinister on Halloween than they are on any other day of the year.” It’s good to hear a rational Christian voice this time of year.

    You may be interested in a short article I wrote with a similar tone. It’s at http://preciousholidays.wordpress.com/2009/10/17/7-tips-for-christians-on-halloween/

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for taking the time to address this issue. As Dr. MacArthur says, this issue is truly between each Christian and the Lord. It is so important that we present the truth about the origins of the Halloween season so that we all can make an educated, Godly decision about our participation. As a Baptist Pastor, I am trying to educate my church, and others, through my blog and from the pulpit.
    May the Lord continue to bless your ministry.
