Halloween can be taken as you will. It began in Ireland, and The U.S.,
Canada, Australia, and other countries have our ways of celebrating it. In Mexico and other Latin American countries, they
use the date to honor their deceased loved ones.
But we also remember that to Satanists, it’s like Easter or some other religious holiday is to us. I read of a case
in which a minister was on a plane and noticed the person next to him had his head bowed in prayer. Afterward, the minister
commented his appreciation to have a fellow Christian beside him. "Oh no," the person quickly said…"I’m
a satanist, and I was praying to him."
And in another case, a minister and his family were in a restaurant when they noticed a group at another table, bowed in prayer.
This minister also commented later to them, only to find that they too were satanists, and the said they were in prayer against
the pastor of a church in that city…a fellow pastor that this minister knew personally.
On the other hand, when I was a kid there was big fun at school, and
that night there would be games and a cake walk, and a queen was chosen at a penney per vote, and there was great excitement
as time ran out. Just a lot of fun, and I don’t suppose anyone gave a thought to anything else…except maybe
soaping the window of a store. My Dad was a minister in the strongest sense, but we didn’t think of the day and night
being more than fun for the kids.
Gamaliel had it right when, after Jesus was crucified, and Christianity was spreading, told his fellow holy men, "And
now I say unto you, refrain from these men, and let them alone; for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to
nought, but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God" (Acts 5:38-39).
Yes, Gamaliel was right, and he didn’t even
have our New Testament, including the book of Revelation, to tell him that in the end, we win! Join up, if you haven’t.
