That time of the year is coming up once again – the holidays. There are many great reasons to love the holidays, but one that seems to be heavily debated among Christians is Halloween.
“What’s the big deal? It’s just a fun time to dress up and collect candy.” That’s a good question, but the real question here is, “Should Christians celebrate Halloween?”
Although Halloween never bothered me much, the Lord has been warning these past few months about Halloween and why my family shouldn’t celebrate it. I’ve never been a fan because I’m strongly against candy. I don’t buy it for my son and I don’t like when he eats it. Therefore, why would I take him to get candies from strangers?
It just doesn’t make sense to me. Plus, I do not waste money so to think about spending money on a costume that he’ll only wear once is mind-boggling to me. I just don’t get it.
That being said, there are other reasons besides the natural that people should steer clear of this ungodly holiday.
“I”m glad that Christian parents let their children worship the devil at least one night out of the year.”
-Anton LaVey, founder of the church of Satan
For one, it’s not a Christian holiday. It does absolutely nothing to give glory and worship to the Lord. The Bible says to present our lives as a living sacrifice to God and to do everything as unto the Lord.
When we celebrate Halloween, we aren’t coming together in the name of Jesus to spread the Word of God. Instead, we’re trying to change the identity that God has given us to pretend to be something else. Then, we go to the houses of people we don’t know to collect candy.
As someone who has studied nutrition, I really don’t like candy. Candy is bad for the body and does harm to the beautiful temple of God. Candy is processed and man-made. It does not glorify the Lord.
