Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. THIS SHOW ALSO MENTIONS DARPA AND THE BATMAN SHOOTER AND CONSPIRACIES IN THE NEWS
Great Sermon! As a born-again believer, I don't want anything to do with Halloween.
But during my unsaved days, I used to love Halloween, but then this happened:
Halloween 2001. I thought it would be cool to make the front of our house really creepy and scary for the trick-or-treaters. I went out and spent money on this Halloween junk like skeletons, spiders, etc.
I bought a Hollywood-style CD full of scary sounds and music from a dollar store and blasted it loudly on the front porch.
Then a precious sweet little girl walked up to the porch (her parents at the end of the driveway) and what I was playing REALLY SCARED this little one. I immediately turned it down to almost inaudible. I apologized. This felt so wrong--I know now that God was convicting me.
And then this happened: 5-6 years ago I talked my husband into going to local lion's club haunted house. One of the ghoulish displays included an area devoted to dead, cut up, decapitated and bloodied babies. I was now a babe in Christ. This scene so upset me, I started to hyperventilate and cry profusely. It was so sick. My husband had to pull me out of the line, hug me and calm me down. It took at least 10 minutes for me to regain my composure.
We left and agreed that Halloween has no place in the lives of Christians.
