Do You Glorify God on Halloween?
Written by T.M. Gaouette | October 31, 2015
Ladies, Halloween is a controversial holiday for many Christians. While some Christians celebrate the holiday, others prefer to steer clear of it. Why?
Halloween is often described as an evil pagan holiday, but the truth is that it originated in an attempt to baptize a dark holiday, as did Christmas and Easter. These and other Christian holidays were specifically celebrated on existing pagan holidays in an attempt to divert attention toward Christ and away from evil.
The following is a clip that describes this in a brief and concise way.
Ladies, the truth of Halloween is in its origins. Just because these holidays were celebrated on existing pagan holidays doesn’t mean that they themselves are pagan.
Also, God recognizes what’s in the heart. He knows what your intentions are. And so when you glorify and praise His name and recognize Him on these days, He knows that He is being glorified and no one else.
If you do celebrate Halloween, I do urge you to steer away from the darkness that some people surround themselves in and opt for fun costumes, rather than evil ones. We as Christians must continue to glorify our Lord on this day and remind everyone that Halloween is a holy day, and should be celebrated as such.
Ladies, do you celebrate Halloween? Why or why not?
