"If giving up a holiday that brings Him zero glory is a sacrifice I must make to be more like my Savior, is that too much of a price to pay?"

Simeon joins me in this episode to discuss our stance on Halloween. I understand this is a controversial topic amongst Christians, and we take a very strong, possibly radical stance, on it, but we are convinced that our position comes from one that has been bathed in prayer and Scripture. 

I John 1:5 “. . .God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”

A friend of mine wrote, "Why would I celebrate the very darkness Christ has saved me from?" Halloween is a holiday that is engulfed in darkness and evil.  The Bible talks about those very things having the spirit of anti-Christ, something that is direct opposition to the very nature of God.

As we set a goal for Christ-likeness in our lives and homes, we have come to believe that this holiday has no place in the life of a Christian. Maybe you agree with us, maybe you don't. Our desire for this episode is not to judge or condemn, but to do a deep-dive into God's Word and see what He has to say on the topic. May our hearts be challenged to always be conforming more into the image of Christ. Where that lands you as a family might be a different place than where it's landed us. We should never be afraid to have our standards challenged as we study and grow in the truths of Scripture.
