Burning Down Halloween


Dear Pastor,

My family has decided to renounce Halloween festivities and stop celebrating it. What do we do with our old decorations and costumes?


I’m thrilled you have finally taken the plunge and joined the ranks of Christians who are making a statement against the most evil night of the year: Satan’s high-holiday, October 31st—Halloween. What do you do with the contraband? You burn it all, immediately. It’s important that you do not send these items to the resale shops and thrift stores where they are sold for a profit to contaminate the households of others.

While Halloween participants are mostly innocent folks who view spook-night as a candy-filled frolic; Satan’s Church appreciates anyone who keeps the Devil’s most-high-holiday going under the guise of “fun.” The Evil One doesn’t care if you realize what Halloween is about or not…participating in it at all validates the eve of what is called The Black Mass; Black Sabbath or Samhain (the night of blood.)

The Black Sabbath of Satan’s Church is no joke. Don’t believe me? Google it. But beware: the images you may stumble over as you do your research; the pages of text you may read as you study to verify what I’m saying, are all cursed—meant to contaminate anyone ensnared by these demonic websites. Sometimes those internet portals literally open doors to the dark realm. Sometimes you’ll be visited by something at night simply because you’ve accessed their web pages. Research these things at your own risk. Or simply believe me that I may know something you don’t: Halloween is deeply evil. It is not the sort of thing where Christians should ever be a participant, let alone a celebrant.

Druids, on the other hand, celebrate Halloween to the fullest extent, even now. Who are they? Descendants of the Baals. Who are the Baals? The ancient enemies of God documented in nearly every Old Testament Book of the Bible. These primeval Satanists regularly practiced infanticide of their first-born in order to appease their pagan deities. The Baals constructed fiery altars for human sacrifice while they blue-printed the demonic root system of both Halloween and abortion, to be precise. Feel free to research this, too. But you’ll need a strong stomach.

Last week, one of my parishioners waved away the idea of Halloween abstinence and quipped, “Naaah. Halloween is only what you make it, just like everything else.” I wish that were true. Halloween is the single, American holiday that has never been redeemed from its pagan roots. Everybody in America knows what Halloween represents, no matter how many “Fall Festivals” “Pumpkin Parades” and “Harvest Parties” you craft with non-scary costumes and candy. Fear, terror, horror, nightmares, demons, witches, spells, curses and of course, high altars of ritualized, black magic and bloodletting. This is the real Halloween. Sounds fun, eh?

Moses, the great deliverer of God’s people and the scribe of the underpinnings of our Christian faith, was faced with the same dilemma: The culture surrounding God’s people practiced forbidden traditions. They wanted to participate in them and some of them did. Here’s what Moses declared in response: “You must burn up the carved images of their gods. Don’t covet the silver and gold on the images and take it for yourself, or else you will be ensnared by it, for it is abhorrent to the Lord your God. You must not bring any abhorrent thing into your house, or you will be set apart for destruction like it. You are to utterly detest and abhor it, because it is set apart for destruction” (Deuteronomy 7:25, 26, HCSB.) Moses also detailed the evils of topics which make up the DNA of Halloween itself: “divination.” He made sure there were elaborate warnings and explanations inside his books of Leviticus (chapters 19 & 20) and Deuteronomy (chapters 7 & 18.) Subsequent scribes documented horrific outcomes in the books of 2 Kings (chapters 17 & 21) and 2 Chronicles (chapter 33.) All of these scriptures warn of the dangers and consequences of playing with darkness. The answer? Don’t play.
