Is Halloween the devil’s day?
Is it a sin to “trick or treat?”
Is wearing a costume or mask satanic?
Are Halloween parties a front for demonic rituals?
As a pastor with 27 years of experience, I have received hundreds of questions like these. Today, I hope to put these and similar questions to rest.
When it comes to anything like the aforementioned items, remember this five-word phrase: It is what it is.
A Bart Simpson mask is what it is: a Bart Simpson mask.
Candy is what it is: candy.
Bobbing for apples is what it is: bobbing for apples.
A party is what it is: a party.
Playing pretend or make believe is what it is: playing pretend or make believe.
Having fun with friends is what it is: having fun with friends.
And, being a party pooper is what it is: being a party pooper.
If you read more into the festivities of the season, that’s your prerogative. In my opinion, I believe that’s a very unhealthy insertion.
My advice: lighten up.
And… have a blessed day!
