“Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil …” 3 John 1:11
Seeing kids in Halloween costumes and hearing people say, “Oh, so cute!” breaks my heart.
Aren’t we teaching kids that dressing up, looking and acting like monsters, witches, zombies or any other scary creature is fun and cute? Not only we have our kids eat lots of sweets and candies, which isn’t healthy, but we also tell them scary stories, and later would ask help on how to solve our kids’ nightmare problems.
I don’t understand why people would scream their lungs out when they see “ghosts,” but would dress up like one during the Halloween. They may reason out that it’s a tradition that their country practice for centuries.
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”~ Colossians 2:8
Being the 31st of October or 1st of November doesn’t make evil “fun and cute.” We think that this is just for fun, but let’s not forget that it was evil that nailed the Son of God to the cross and it wasn’t funny or cute, either.
Could we honestly still think of Christ while celebrating this tradition? Can we really serve God while we practice this tradition contrary to the Scriptures? Can we really serve two masters at the same time?
So sad 😦 Wish we Christian would realize this.
