Is Halloween A Christian Holiday

My children and I are new residents of the USA, and as such, our participation in cultural and national events/celebrations would form part of the adaptation process. What is HALLOWEEN about, and do the activities, etc, confirm to christian bible principles?

Moderator - It is a satanic high holiday and is against the Bible.

Rhonda:

I don't think you're getting the point. You are assuming that Halloween is Satan's holiday.
*****

my point? how about GODS POINT? seems you forgot HIM?

more babbling on about loving evil VOID of Holy Scripture ...honoring this day serves evil and MOCKS Christ ...how would playing with evil and calling it good (which Holy Scripture CONDEMNS) honor the sacrifice of Christ and prove you are a True Believer following the examples of Christ

confusion is in your mind ...one must be deliberately ignorant to pretend the evil of this day does not exist and also PRETEND they are not following Satan

there are no GOOD fruits of the devils day called halloween
---Rhonda on 11/11/11


Rhonda:

I don't think you're getting the point. You are assuming that Halloween is Satan's holiday. Why do you assume that?

It can't be because the Bible prohibits it, because Halloween is not mentioned anywhere.

If it's because "it's not mentioned in the Bible", that isn't enough, because if that is enough to ban Halloween, it's enough to ban July 4th and automobiles and computers and the internet and you and me.

You talk about searching the scriptures, but the plain fact is that the scriptures say ABSOLUTELY NOTHING specifically about Halloween at all.

Now if you can show some scriptures that relate to it indirectly, we'd be glad to hear them.

Rhonda: 'no verse FROM Holy Scripture supports this'

Indeed not. And no verse from Holy Scripture supports the fact you were born!

oh so because there are no verses supporting my birth, your birth, or anyone elses birth that settles why a TRUE BELIEVER would honor Satan on his holiday halloween

new way of spinning a LIE - throw something completely unrelated up as "proof" RATHER than search Holy Scriptures

no wonder so many are drowning in DECEPTION Peter YOU SELL IT

---Peter on 11/9/11




It is not the day itself that is cursed, but what sinners do on this day which is cursed. On this day, or any other day, a Christian will create and bless others: but on this day, or any other day, a sinner will destroy and curse others. When I found a razor blade in my little sisters bag of gathered treats on trick-or-treat, I knew that there were evil people in this world that live only to hurt others. I become indignant when I think what would have happened if my little sister would have bitten into that apple. This world has some real sickos which have zero license to do the sick things that they do, and if I had the authority these people would be sorely punished.

The Church is not to bless what GOD has called a Curse!
---Gordon on 11/8/11

When did God call this day cursed? Man did that.
---Jed on 11/9/11


Gordon:

You said: The Church is not to bless what GOD has called a Curse!

Please cite chapter and verse exactly where God calls Halloween a curse?
---StrongAxe on 11/9/11


The Moderator is right regarding the Question above. And let me add that NEITHER can this Satanic holiday of Hallowe'en be "Christianized" into a "safe" holiday. Even though many Churches are doing that nowadays. They are doing WRONG! The Church is not to bless what GOD has called a Curse!
---Gordon on 11/8/11


So Rhonda, let me get this straight. You are saying that any man-made holiday that is not mentioned in scripture is of the devil? In this case all national American holidays such as Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Father's Day, Mother's Day, and Independence Day are all of the devil as well? Every holiday other than ancient Jewish holidays are of the devil since they were not commanded by God himself? Any man-established celebration is of the devil? I asked you this question already but I will assume you didn't see it since you failed to answer.
---Jed on 11/8/11




Rhonda:

There is no verse in scripture saying Halloween is a holiday of Satan either.

There are many things that we observe that are not in scripture. Denominations, praise and worship teams, altar calls, books of common prayer, choir robes, pews, sunday school, televangelists. There is no record in the Bible of the early church celebrating Christmas either.

The fact that they are not mentioned does not make them wrong. If you reject All Saint's Day because it is not mentioned, you must reject all the others as well for the same reason.
---StrongAxe on 11/7/11


Rhonda, A-men. Idolaters made the unholy day of halloween in order to celebrate their vain imaginations and set a day to satiate their flesh. There's one thing good about halloween, it in increases sales for candy makers and also increases business for dentists.
---Eloy on 11/7/11


Halloween is another day originally set to honor God.
All Hallow's Eve, which precedes All Saint's Day, was a time to give honor to the saints of God that have gone on before us

sweet

still nothing confirms this idea simply a fairy tale from men

where are the examples in Holy Scripture confirming this nonsense of an "all saints day honoring the dead"

no verse FROM Holy Scripture supports this LIE
---Rhonda on 11/7/11


Halloween is another day originally set to honor God.
All Hallow's Eve, which precedes All Saint's Day, was a time to give honor to the saints of God that have gone on before us.
It is also another holiday (Holy Day) that has been corrupted by evil to the point that it's original meaning is all but gone from our culture today.
May we reflect on this as well as the corruption of other days such as Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving: all days originally set aside to honor God as a holy people.
1Ki 12:28 Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves [of] gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

Rhonda: 'Satans holiday halloween'

Can you provide some evidence?
---James on 11/6/11
*****

evidence?

you have ignored Holy Scriptures I shared yet want more, or maybe you don't believe in The Father in Heaven and want some "other" evidence?

I have asked you to provide Holy Scriptures that support your theories it is a day honoring GOD and the day has FRUITS FROM GOD

you have evaded - still nothing from you

we seem to be at an impasse ...you staunchily defend Satans day "just because" and are void of any Scripture that supports your "just because" theories
---Rhonda on 11/7/11


Rhonda, July 4th, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Father's Day, Mother's Day, Birthdays, Presidents Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter... None of these holidays have any biblical basis, is it wrong to celebrate all of these as well?

Rhonda:

The Bible constantly shows examples of good things and people being corruped by evil, but also evil things and people being redeemed for the good. Look at Jesus and the thief on the cross (who must have done something pretty heinous to warrant torture and death).

In the Dark Ages, many people were executed for being witches - because if anything miraculous happened, people were much more willing to believe that the Devil did it than that God did it. They evidently believed the Devil had much more power than God did.

Which of the two do YOU believe has more power? And if it's God, don't you think he has more power to redeem evil, than the devil has to corrupt good?

Halloween will be whatever you make it in your family.
*****

CHRIST WARNED MANY would come in HIS name to DECEIVE

WICKED deceiving others to follow Satans holiday halloween just as Eve was deceived

either one serves Satan and his holiday or one serves GOD

Holy Scripture states you cannot do both

celebrating a holiday that has NO FRUITS of GOD simply makes one a vessel for Satan spreading his evil and mocking Christ and HIS sacrifice

BELIEVE LIARS who claim you can make evil of halloween good or BELIEVE Holy Scripture that states you cannot play with evil and "make it good"

TRUE Believers reject evil traditions of halloween all others are simply false christians serving Satan
---Rhonda on 11/6/11


Halloween will be whatever you make it in your family. Just like any other holiday. To some, Christmas is a celebration of Santa Clause and to others it Celebrates the birth of Jesus. To some Thanksgiving celebrates the pilgrims giving thanks to God for the new land, others use this time to thank God for the blessing in their lown ife, but to some it is just a day for food and family reunion. Easter can be a celebration of Jesus' ressurection or a celebration of an egg laying bunny. As I said, just because it means something to someone else, doesn't mean it has to have the same meaning to you. It will be whatever you make it.

Is dressing up as a saint 'honouring satan' to you??????????
****

playing dress up masquerading as someone else - still Satan's Day - simply honor Satan dressing up as a so-called "saint" ...nobody knows what any saint or Christ looked like a lie to yourself claiming you dressup like them

you demanded Scripture I provided in previous posts ...I ask you to provide Scripture and you cannot instead another post whining with childlike excuse to justify evil and participate in Satans holiday halloween

if it looks like halloween and speaks of the dead it is halloween Jer 13:23

Christ said let the DEAD bury the DEAD - because they were dead in spirit ...those who serve the LIVING GOD divine creator of all are alive in spirit

all saints day is rcc's ADOPTION of halloween with a slight twist and spin

Christ said MANY would come in HIS name to DECEIVE - deception of many who choose to IGNORE they honor Satan on halloween
---Rhonda on 11/5/11


\\Cluny, sorry to burst your ol' bubble here but the RCC admits that Halloween is Catholic in its origin,\\

Of course. It's the evening before All Saints after First Vespers (which begins the liturgical day) has been celebrated.

All Saints Day originated in the consecration of the Church of St. Mary and All Saints on 1 November in Rome.

For that matter, Transfiguration, 6 August, is originally the day of the consecration of the Church of the Transfiguration on Mt. Tabor, where the Gospel event happened.

FWIW, Orthodox All Saints is the Sunday after Pentecost.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 11/5/11


Cluny, sorry to burst your ol' bubble here but the RCC admits that Halloween is Catholic in its origin, (and is a far cry from what americans celebrate). i do agree that the slanderous accusation that some make of the RC church trying to put a christian coat on a pagan rite is unprovable, and deffenately not an issue to make a point in this arguement. personally i donot celebrate Halloween because of the witches and goblins attached to this celebration. on the other hand let everybody be free in his mind.
interesting however that samhain, (the opening of the gates of the "underworld" and all "saints & all souls celebration" fall on the same date.

1Co 8:4-7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol, and their conscience being weak is defiled.
But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better, neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.

But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.
For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols,

Can you eat this piece of meat?

No man-made traditions, including christmas, good friday and easter are instructions given by the Lord Almighty to celebrate or sanctify them Christian traditions, according to His Word. In fact, when one is taken out by the Lord from the world (aka Egypt), saved by His Son Jesus Christ to be in union with Him, He instructs us, saying,

"I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Exodus 20:2,3

There are only two injunctions that Paul teaches: baptism and the last supper "For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come." ! Corinthians 11:26

John: 'It is a Pagan Harvest Festival of the Celtic culture'

The question of which arose first, the Catholic All Saints day (11/1) or the Gaelic Samhain, remains uncertain.

The writing listing 11/1 as All Saints Day are actually OLDER (609AD) than the pagan writings (9-10th Century)

So the statement, while possibly true, is not KNOWN to be true.

The oldest writing of November 1 as a holiday is actually Christian.

Halloween was the feast on the evening before All Saints Day

Halloween is a celebration of satan. Last night I gave out candy at my sons house. All the innocent children were just having fun. Most people just let their kids have a good time and never think of halloween as a day of satan. Personally I hate halloween because of what it has become.

It is the celebration of the victory of all saints, or believers, in union with Christ. The observance of various celebrations of All Saints arose in the late 300s, and these were united and fixed on November 1st in the late 700s.

Halloween is a day to Celebrate the devil. It is evil and very much against God. If you are going to celebrate a Holiday in October, it is best to Celebrate Day of Atonement (October 9th) and Feast of Tabernacles (October 14th). These are God's Feast Days that He tells His people to observe forever (Deuteronomy 16:16-17, Leviticus 23:14,21,31,41).

Yet another reason why the Roman Catholic Church is not Christian. It may appear Christian and there are Christian members of it, BUT, It was started by THEM (Rome) and not by Born-Again Christianity. How can a holiday that glorifies Satan, be Christian? Is dressing up as the devil glorifying God?

It is Samhain, look at a pagan wheel. Rome borrowed it for themselves.

Adam, There are indeed True Christian Holidays, and they are the Messianic Festivals, and they ALL point to the Messiah YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH, commonly known as Jesus Christ.

Halloween, as it is celebrated in the U.S. IS a Christian holiday. All the traditional trappings, which used to be used to HONOR the dead, have been changed by Christians to ward against demons.

The irony of it all is, Pagans don't even believe in Satan. (They don't believe in Jehovah OR His Adversary!)

Halloween is not Samhain, which is a combination of Memorial Day and Thanksgiving. There is NO devil-worshiping or human sacrifices.

And to say otherwise is to bear false witness!
---Nancy on 11/4/07


Which country are you from? Most western countries have Halloween in some form, and Christians in these countries know that Halloween is not a part of Christianity at all.

The 'holiday' Halloween was known as All Hallow's Eve. It is so called because this 'is' the night when the dead revisit the mortal world, and humans have to take action to ward off the evil spirits.

The Christians did not incorporate this festival into their calendar. However, as has been mentioned, they put a festival on the next day (All Saints' Day) in reaction to Halloween.

Almost all Christian Holidays have a tie in with paganism. Christmas day was chosen because it was close to the winter equinox. Christians used these dates for a couple of reasons. One was to gather in people who were not believers and make them converts. The other was to cement the relationships believers already had with Christ by making them chose between the pagan celebration and the Christian one.

Now many people here will think Halloween is pagain because it's a celebration to remember the dead. Sort of like Memorial Day. November 1st is all Saints day and November 2nd is all souls day. This is when we pray for the people who have passed on.
For childen it's a day to get candy corn and snickers.

Um is Easter or christmas in the bible? and what about Hanukka? these are holidays that people celebrate. most would say that Jesus didn't celebrate hanukka because it's not in the bible, but since hanukka was started in the intertestamental period (check Maccabee's) Jesus celebrated, because all Jews did. We can celebrate what holidays we want, I think it is wrong to cut out celebration because celebration points out victory which is what we have through Christ.

Halloween is just another holiday. It is like substituting easter eggs and rabbits for Jesus. Like putting Santa Claus before Jesus.

Yes Halloween is a christian Holiday organized to celebrate the victory over evil through Jesus Christ. true it was a pagan holiday but so were most holidays that are celebrated (Even Jewish Holidays have pagan holidays on the same day) Most holidays were founded on the Lunar Calendar so every religious holiday could have a corisponding pagan holiday with it.

Take your children Trick or Treating let them enjoy the Holiday as practiced in your community. Also participate in Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years etc. You will find that they will assimilate into American culture faster they you will

It's just a fun day for kids. They dress up and go to their neighbor's house and get candy. Maybe they'll go to a party where they'll play games and have fun dressing up. Thats what halloween is to me. No witchcraft or devil worshiping at all.

It is totally unchristian! It promotes witchcraft, spiritisme, and thretening others who may refuse to "treat"! P.

Moderator is exactly right.

I 100% agree with Moderator. It is NOT a Christian holiday. It's not found anywhere in scripture and Jesus never mentioned going trick or treating on Halloween. Stay away from it, don't participate in it. It's very demonic and one of the biggest nights for satan worshippers to come together and sacrifice animals, even humans sometimes. It's pure evil, stay away from it.
