Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality,impurity, depravity, idolatry, sorcery, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish rivalries, dissensions, factions, envying, murder, drunkenness, carousing, and similar things. I am warning you, as I had warned you before: Those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God!

I have a problem with Halloween.  It’s not the dressing up, the parties or going to get treats.  It’s the costumes so many choose to wear.  We are told to have nothing to do with certain things.  One of them is witchcraft and satan worship.  Dressing up as a witch or as satan or anything else that gives honor to any act of evil is very repulsive to me.  There are so many different characters to copy in our costumes other than those who represent the ways of sin and evil.  It is good for children to have fun but they should also learn that we are to have nothing to do with things that represent evil and witches and goblins and etc. are real and in satan’s world.  This is my personal interpretation.  Each must decide for themselves but I choose not to honor things or characters that represent evil that is still present in this world.  Have a fun, safe and satan-free Halloween.
