Many Christians struggle with the Halloween holiday because of its association with the occult and pagan world, witch craft, demons, death, and darkness. Regardless of where you stand on the issue of celebrating Halloween, why not use it as an opportunity to lovingly dialog with others, even unbelievers, about how God is greater than all these evils. Focus on our great God more than how you feel about Halloween and you just might walk away from this holiday encouraged rather than dismayed.

Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. (Eph. 5:15-16)

Think of it this way:

Halloween Is … but God ….

Halloween is a reminder that we live in a dark, evil world but God brings light and goodness to us. (Jn. 1:4-5; 8:12; 12:46; 2 Cor. 4:6; Eph. 5:8; 1 Pet. 2:9)

Halloween is a dance around death but God Himself is life and gives eternal and abundant life to all who believe. (Jn. 3:16; 10:10; Rom. 6:23; 2 Tim. 1:10)

Halloween is an acknowledgement of the spirit world but God is stronger and greater than all of them combined. (Eph. 6:10-17; Col. 2:15; 1 Pet. 5:8; 1 Jn. 4:4)

Halloween is cloaked in superstitions but God is sovereign and faithful and worthy of our undivided devotion and trust. (Prov. 3:5-6; 16:9; 19:21; Jer. 29:11-13; Col. 2:8-10, 18-23; 1 Tim. 4:7-8)
