Have you ever noticed Halloween is largely pictured comically, with soft fearsome images?

The comic quality seeks to santize its fears and weaken its threats. Yet, not even comics can truly hide death, darkness and fear.  

Halloween is:

  • an agent of hostile darkness disguised as an angel of innocent light,
  • the world ignoring Christ to celebrate satan, offering satan blind praise - and
  • a roaring lion wearing the mantle of a passive lamb.

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8)

With little spiritual discernment Christians have bought satan's lies as wholeheartedly as the world. They too now call evil good, and that which is harmful as harmless.

Satan has placed another yoke upon the shoulders of mankind, another burden to oppress. As Halloween further empties a families' purse while adults and children alike become increasingly vulnerable to the ploys and wiles of the evil one.

At Halloween the Lord of Light is slighted while the prince of darkness is celebrated.

Do not be deceived - the evil one is actively seeking only worship of himself.

Halloween has become a strikingly sanitary (and therefore enduring) presentation of darkness.

Events of October 31 each year beckon the Christian to exercise spiritual discernment rather than consent to worldly practise for:

halloween is the season when evil wears a party mask.
