How to honor God during Halloween
Halloween can be difficult for Christians to navigate as they seek to honor God during a season where princess costumes and superhero capes are sold alongside demon horns and witches’ cauldrons. While spiritual darkness and death are very real, Christians do not need to fear because of the hope that can be found in Jesus Christ.
Many see Halloween as an opportunity to meet neighbors and enjoy family time together. The holiday can also be used as an outreach by handing out religious tracts or inviting unchurched friends and family to a fall festival or trunk-or-treat event at a local church.
Regardless of how you choose to spend Oct. 31, the Bible is very clear that the devil is real and there is spiritual warfare taking place daily. During his 1971 Crusade in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, Billy Graham addressed the topic of witches, demons and the devil using the story about Jesus meeting a demon-possessed man in the book of Mark.
