Every time I have wanted to talk about Halloween on the blog, I either do not have enough information or not enough time, usually both. So this year, I’m going to try to share with you some resources to help you think about the topic.
Is Halloween ok? Is it not ok? How should Christians look at Halloween?
Halloween can be such a touchy topic when it comes to discussing it among Christians. But it’s a holiday that should be discussed. Anything we celebrate and anything we do needs to be viewed from the lens of scripture.
Which is why I am excited to share this video by Mike Winger | A Pastor Shares His Thoughts On Halloween
I think this a very fair view on Halloween, the good and the bad. By no means do you have to change your views, but the goal here is for us to be focused on the word of God, not ourselves. I think Mike covers the topic in depth. He helps us critically think about how to look at Halloween, while looking at scripture.
Mike has a ton of content over on his YouTube Channel. He covers cults. He covers skepticism people have of Christianity. Weekly he has a live chat in which he answers 20 questions. He goes over the Bible, he just finished a two years series on the book of Mark. He has warned about watered down translations like The Message, The Mirror Bible and he has a series of interviewing scholars on the problems of The Passion Bible.
As you might imagine, Mike spends a ton of time in research of these topics before he makes a video on them. All the more reason I am excited to present to you his breakdown on Halloween.
Scripture To Memorize/Meditate On – (ESV) Romans 5:08, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
