–The greatest challenge for Halloween is not decorating, or getting a costume that suits you, or which party to go to, or getting the kids ready for trick or treating, or even the weather. The greatest challenge is to take a strong and solid stand against evil and for good!
Will you take this stand with me?
–I refuse to celebrate, focus on, dress up like, or open up to demons, witches, ghosts, gore, terror, horror, or any other forms of evil on the day called Halloween (October 31) or on any other day! I choose instead to “put on Christ” and to make everyday a mighty celebration of the Presence of the living, resurrected Jesus Christ and of His love, joy, forgiveness, freedom, healing, hope, righteousness, peace, power, salvation, and victory on the cross!
For me October 31 is a day of God’s destiny. Twenty-six years ago today I had a business lunch with a woman I had never met. She became my best friend, my fellow soldier in seeking and serving Christ, and 9 months later my wife. Here’s more of our story.
October 31 is also known as Reformation Day. It’s the date in 1517 when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the church in Wittenburg, Germany thus beginning the Protestant Reformation. Here are 95 Theses for the 21st Century.
