Halloween is a touchy subject for many Christians. Some are totally against it and some see no issues with it. I am by no means an expert on this but this is my take on it.
My daughter and I had a conversation about it a few months ago because she was concerned that she was bad for wanting to dress up for Halloween. I struggled to respond because I am still figuring out where I stand on the whole thing.
I told her that for many Halloween is a time to celebrate evil and things of the devil but we don’t celebrate with them. I said that I know she just likes to get dressed up and get candy but she has to be mindful of what and who she is representing. She said that she never wants to dress as any ghost or evil being because she doesn’t think those things are good. I let her know that I am still not sure about the whole thing and that I will keep praying about it and asking for guidance but for now I will let her dress up.
This morning when I woke up I saw a message from my dad with this link http://branham.org/articles/10272016_HalloweenTheTrueMeaning. I read it and I am sharing it because it was interesting to read. (It may be offensive to Catholics). I am not endorsing anything but I figure you can read it and let the Holy Spirit guide you to get what you need from it.
I am a strong believer in the fact that everyone’s walk with Christ is different so I am not here to tell anyone what to do or to judge. This year my daughter has a costume, will she have one next year? I don’t know. I’m still growing and maturing in my faith. I will keep praying about it and talking to my daughter and we will see where the Spirit leads us next year. My prayer is that you do the same!
Just doing my Father’s work!
