The Halloween Illusion#
Which zebra is facing the camera? Illusions always capture an imagination.
Have you ever noticed Halloween captures the imagination? It is an illusion, pictured comically by the softening of many fearsome images.
The comic quality seeks to sanitize its fears and weaken its threats. Yet, not even comics can truly hide death, darkness and terror.
- an agent of hostile darkness disguised as an angel of innocent light,
- the world ignoring Christ to celebrate satan, offering satan blind honor - 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 fun.
Satan has placed another yoke upon the shoulders of mankind, another burden to oppress.
Halloween further empties a families' purse while children 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 and conform to worldly practise.
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light. (Ephesians 5:8)
