How Should Christians Think About Halloween?

Posted: October 31, 2011 by Brett Kunkle in Etcetera

Today, millions of Americans will celebrate Halloween but this holiday typically raises a number of questions for Christians.  Greg Koukl has written some thoughts HERE.  I agree with much except for his brief thoughts on trick-or-treating as a participation in the forms of Halloween.  And I think Greg has softened his position on this anyhow, as he mentions in THIS VIDEO.  Like Greg, my larger concern is the potential for Halloween to minimize the occult.  But I don’t find this reason enough to abstain from all participation in Halloween activities.

Melinda Penner also has some very good thoughts about what should be much more concerning for Christians:  HALLOWEEN WORRIES, DOCTRINE APATHY.
