C'mon. Let's Be Honest About Halloween

By       (Page 3 of 3 pages)   3 comments

"4. Join a church harvest party. Join your church or a neighboring church in hosting a harvest party. This gives children and their families a safe place to go and gets them off of the streets. It also opens the door for you to spread the gospel. Don't just ignore Halloween; turn it into an opportunity. Be proactive!" -- Rosalind Jukic

This is very similar to the trunk and treat. It is just a whitewashing of the evil. It might look prettier on the outside but inside it is still as evil. Can we just admit as we close that this has nothing to do with any sincere desire to spread the Gospel? You have 364 other days of the year to do that and you don't in all likelihood. For the majority of us this has nothing to do with not wanting to be proactive, meeting your neighbors, or spreading the love of Jesus Christ. This has to do with the current state of parenting. In our culture today, parents think they have to be friends with their children instead of parenting them. As parent, you are in charge. You are not their co-pilot making suggestions. I know this can be difficult to hear but sometimes the answer needs to be no. Doesn't God sometimes say no to us? Halloween is not a formative event in our lives. I understand this is easier taught than caught but every year the church needs to be reminded that as the key verse says, abstain from every form of evil.
