This article was published last year, but with Halloween approaching, I thought we should welcome back its ghost.
In an article on the the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) web site, writer Kimberley Daniels warned her readers to steer clear of Halloween candy. She says that “…most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches. I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.”
One more quote. “Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil…”
I am not making this up. There are people who really believe this kind of stuff.
I am sure most Christians are able to dismiss this kind of superstitious fear mongering, and just enjoy handing out trick-or-treats and laughing at the kids’ costumes.
But the lunatics are out there, and they are scarier by far than the imaginary goblins and ghosts. I am sure that, if they had their way, Halloween would be abolished.
