in Light of the Scriptures

Copyright 1998 by Diane Dew 

Halloween has everything to do with fear and death -- ghosts, witches, skulls, tombstones, graveyards -- and nothing to do with life. Jesus said, "I come to give you life..."

Fear is not of God.  2 Timothy 1:7 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 1 John 4:18 "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear; because fear hath torment...."

Jesus Christ came to free us of all our fears.  Luke 1:74; Hebrews 2:14-15

Jesus overcame death.  Isaiah 28:18; Luke 7:14-15; John 10:17-18; Acts 2:24, 27; 1 Corin. 15:54-55; Heb 2:14; Revel 1:18; 28:18

Halloween has its roots in witchcraft and everything related to Satan. Therefore, Christians should shun any involvement in it. We are called to be "holy" ("separate" from the world and from evil), and have no part in such things.

Following are some Bible studies related to the topic. Each study incorporates every significant verse on the topic into one neat outline.

A Testimony
From: A Pastor in Namibia, Africa

Greetings! I fully endorse this web site re : Halloween..... It is long overdue....I am an African and do not
know all of the history or origin of Halloween. We only see it on our TV's.... What we see is scary and justified cause for concern especially amongst Christian believers.... Celebration of Halloween should be done away with.....
