Well you didn’t expect me to start out by saying “Happy Halloween” did you? Just because it’s a semi-official holiday, perhaps even world-wide, doesn’t mean we have to go out and celebrate worshiping demons and satan does it? Well, I for one won’t! We Christians prefer to celebrate a “Harvest” festival because that’s what it really should be based on. People for 1,000’s of years have idolized and worshiped fertility gods, and demons all in the name of so-called “Prosperity.” We, rather I prefer to worship the source of all goodness and the creator of all around us.
How, in America, it all ever got mixed up and we started worshiping demons and such for some supposed “Holiday” is just beyond my comprehension. And, then again, of course we now live in a very affluent area where parents are inclined to go overboard with their decorations and such. The town here, Manhattan Beach, especially the walk streets, are just filled with dead bodies, grave yards, witches, black cats, and even angry birds hanging from trees. What a mess. I handed out some Gospel tracts today and told folks about the real reason for our celebrations.
