Everywhere they go from September 10th until November 10th, your kids will be surrounded by Halloween. The skeletons and skulls. The costumes and candy.
In fact, even you as parents may see so much Halloween propaganda that you become numb to it.
Many Christians have grown to think that Halloween is just a harmless tradition. Since everyone else is participating in it, it must be ok. Right?
Most Christians do not know the true meaning of Halloween, or they would never let their children participate in it.
They don't realize that it is a dangerous ritual based on a pagan belief in channeling spirits of the dead. A sinful tradition that has passed from generation to generation for over 2,000 years.
But, there is no way to keep your kids away from this celebration of demons without sitting down as a family and explaining what it really is.
Taking time out as a family to talk about this important subject better equips your kid to deal with pressure and temptations to participate when you are not there to speak for them.
We can not just stick our heads in the sand and ignore what is going on around our children. If you do not take the time to arm them with the truth and the Word, they can be drawn to this dark holiday like everyone else around them.
It is sad that even Christians have started thinking that dressing up as monsters, or even Satan himself, is no big deal. Whether we realize it or not, when we participate in Halloween, we unknowingly steal glory from God by celebrating the things of the devil.
God warns us of demonic spirits many times in His Word. By allowing your kids to participate in a ritual that was actually created to honor demon spirits, you can open them up to demonic influences.
The purpose of the Christian Halloween Family Bible Lesson is to open up a dialog between you and your children concerning this dangerous day. The Lesson gives you a quick Halloween history lesson , God's unchanging viewpoint, and even discussion questions to spark conversation.
I recommend that you focus on the fun Christian Halloween alternatives for smaller kids and use a combined approach for older ones. Still, you know your kids best!
