Halloween

I know not everyone will agree with this view. I’ve come to the inescapable conclusion that Halloween is evil. Is God upset that you dress your little girl as a princess and take her out to show her off to friends and family? Probably not. I try not to just ask if something questionable is permissible, but go a step farther and ask if it is pleasing to God. Is celebrating a holiday (which remember means holy day and is a wiccan high holy day) dedicated to evil pleasing to God? Definitely not! Can you celebrate Halloween without getting into the gory and evil stuff? Possibly. Is trying to straddle that line pleasing to God? I believe Jesus had something to say about pleasing two masters.

No, celebrating Halloween doesn’t necessarily mean you are going to hell. But does it bring you closer to God? That is the important question. As this world grows darker, I prefer to look to the light, not spread the darkness.

Halloween

Is Halloween just harmless fun?
A time for make believe?
Or something much more sinister,
Which should make Christians grieve?
You say that dressing young girls up
As princesses and such
Is just so sweet, it doesn’t have
To have macabre touch.
But Halloween is so much more
Than sweet costumes and fun.
It is a day (and night) of fear
And from which you should run!
It celebrates the darkness and
The evil in the world.
It flirts with witchcraft, Satan’s toy,
And keeps his flag unfurled.
The fear that just pervades the world
(The opposite of love)
Has no place in a life that points
To heaven up above.
It’s all the other things that go
Along with Halloween
That make it very dangerous,
A most ungodly scene.
Be careful if you celebrate
The things that God abhors.
There’s much more to this “holy day”
Than knocking on friends’ doors.
It’s honoring satanic rites,
No matter what you say,
So please be very careful how
You celebrate this day.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney

    You have asked the best question: Does it bring us closer to God?
