What we shouldn't do as Christians is to hide away in our houses with our doors locked and our lights off and pretend like this day isn't happening.
Mark 16:15 Jesus says “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.
He didn't say hide when you disagree with what others are doing on this day. :)
If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
We live in the world but as Christians we are not of the world so therefore we should not act like the world. I believe that every Christian should pray and seek God about what is the right thing to do concerning Halloween for their family. If you are not convicted in the same way I am, that is fine. I have many Christian friends and family members that do participate in Halloween and I love them dearly. I respect them and their decision and do not cast judgement on them.
Like I said at the beginning of this series of posts - This is a decision we have made for our family.
Thanks for reading and sticking with me for this long post.
What about you? Do you celebrate Halloween in the traditional way? If not, what are some alternative things you do?
