Is Halloween Evil? Why Witches, Occultists And Satanists Celebrate Halloween And Why You Should Not

halloween-pumpkin-public-domainOn October 31st, most people will simply ignore the dark side of Halloween. The vast majority of the population will dress up in costumes, go to parties and eat candy without ever even considering where the holiday came from or what certain people are doing behind closed doors. But the truth is that Halloween night is one of the biggest nights of the year for witches, occultists and Satanists. All over America, those that are deep into the dark arts will be contacting the dead, casting spells and conducting blood sacrifices. As you will see below, there is a reason why animal shelters across the country ban the adoption of black cats this time of the year. But even our “innocent” Halloween traditions such as dressing up in costumes, “trick or treating” and carving jack-o’-lanterns all have their roots in ancient pagan practices. And every year the costumes for our young girls become even more sexually suggestive, the horror movies become even more demonic, and the public’s fascination with the occult just continues to grow. It truly is a festival of death, but most people don’t seem to care. In fact, experts are telling us that Halloween has now become America’s second biggest holiday.

According to the National Retail Federation, nearly 70 percent of all Americans plan to celebrate Halloween this year, and spending is expected to shatter the all-time record…

According to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, total spending for Halloween is expected to reach $8.4 billion, an all-time high in the survey’s 11-year history.

U.S. consumers are expected to spend an average of $82.93, up from last year’s $74.34, with more than 171 million Americans planning to partake in Halloween festivities this year.

To give you some context, total Halloween spending for 2009 came in at just 4.7 billion dollars. So to say that the celebration of Halloween is growing would be a tremendous understatement.

Sadly, most people have no idea where this holiday originally came from. The truth is that a long time ago Catholicism attempted to “Christianize” an ancient pagan holiday known as Samhain

The origins of Halloween are Celtic in tradition and have to do with observing the end of summer sacrifices to gods in Druidic tradition. In what is now Britain and France, it was the beginning of the Celtic year, and they believed Samhain, the lord of death, sent evil spirits abroad to attack humans, who could escape only by assuming disguises and looking like evil spirits themselves. The waning of the sun and the approach of dark winter made the evil spirits rejoice and play nasty tricks. Believe it or not, most of our Halloween practices can be traced back to these old pagan rites and superstitions.

On the Wiccan calendar, Samhain is one of the most important points on “the wheel of the year”. Wiccans believe that it is the day when “the god dies”, and subsequently they celebrate his rebirth at Yule.

It is also a time when they believe that the veil between the living and the dead is the thinnest, and so it is an opportune time for them to contact the dead. The following is much more on what Wiccans believe about Samhain from wicca.com

Samhain, (pronounced SOW-in, SAH-vin, or SAM-hayne) means “End of Summer”, and is the third and final Harvest. The dark winter half of the year commences on this Sabbat.

It is generally celebrated on October 31st, but some traditions prefer November 1st. It is one of the two “spirit-nights” each year, the other being Beltane. It is a magical interval when the mundane laws of time and space are temporarily suspended, and the Thin Veil between the worlds is lifted. Communicating with ancestors and departed loved ones is easy at this time, for they journey through this world on their way to the Summerlands. It is a time to study the Dark Mysteries and honor the Dark Mother and the Dark Father, symbolized by the Crone and her aged Consort.

Originally the “Feast of the Dead” was celebrated in Celtic countries by leaving food offerings on altars and doorsteps for the “wandering dead”. Today a lot of practitioners still carry out that tradition. Single candles were lit and left in a window to help guide the spirits of ancestors and loved ones home. Extra chairs were set to the table and around the hearth for the unseen guest. Apples were buried along roadsides and paths for spirits who were lost or had no descendants to provide for them. Turnips were hollowed out and carved to look like protective spirits, for this was a night of magic and chaos. The Wee Folke became very active, pulling pranks on unsuspecting humans. Traveling after dark was was not advised. People dressed in white (like ghosts), wore disguises made of straw, or dressed as the opposite gender in order to fool the Nature spirits.

The ancient practices described in those paragraphs sound very similar to what we do today in many ways, but without a doubt some of the traditions have evolved. For example, instead of carving turnips, those that celebrate Halloween carve pumpkins today.

You may not realize this, but Wicca is actually one of the fastest growing religions in America. And on October 31st, Wiccans all over the nation will get together to conduct rituals and cast spells. Here is a blurb from Wikipedia about the Wiccan belief in “magic”…

During ritual practices, which are often staged in a sacred circle, Wiccans cast spells or “workings” intended to bring about real changes in the physical world. Common Wiccan spells include those used for healing, for protection, fertility, or to banish negative influences.[63] Many early Wiccans, such as Alex Sanders, Sybil Leek and Alex Winfield, referred to their own magic as “white magic“, which contrasted with “black magic“, which they associated with evil and Satanism. Sanders also used the similar terminology of “left hand path” to describe malevolent magic, and “right hand path” to describe magic performed with good intentions;[64] terminology that had originated with the occultist Helena Blavatsky in the 19th century. Some modern Wiccans however have stopped using the white-black magic and left-right hand path dichotomies, arguing for instance that the colour black should not necessarily have any associations with evil.[65]

If you are not familiar with these things, you may scoff at such practices. But the cold, hard reality of the matter is that they are very real. The dark side has power too, and those that have come out of witchcraft can tell you some stories that will stand your hair on end.

Wiccans think of themselves as “good”, and so they tend to reject blood sacrifices and things of that nature.

But for those that are deeper into the occult, blood sacrifice is an essential part of Halloween. As I mentioned above, many animal shelters all over the nation ban the adoption of black cats this time of the year

It’s the week of Halloween, and maybe you don’t know this, but if you suddenly wanted to adopt a black cat, you would probably have a hard time. That’s because thanks to their association with witchcraft, accepted wisdom holds that Halloween is a time when people ritualistically mutilate black cats.

To test if this really was still accepted wisdom, I contacted some animal shelters near to our Los Angeles office, and they all told me they wouldn’t let me adopt a black cat. One, The Lange Foundation—the type of animal rescue that takes in cats from city shelters before they can be euthanized—was willing to talk to me on the phone and explain: If someone were to call and ask specifically for a black cat, that would trigger the policy. “I would say ‘not today!'” said one of the foundation’s board members, Diana Nelson.

You may not want to believe it, but animals will be killed and little children will be abused on Halloween night. The following is what one ex-witch has shared regarding her experiences…

My parents told me before we went around the neighborhood we were going to go by the church (Mormon Church) to get some candy there. The church was very close to my grandmother’s house, and I knew so from going often.

We went to the church and what happened next made my blood curdle. I was given candy, but that was just a preclude to the sexual abuse that would happen in a satanic ritual. On Halloween Satanists use young children, such as myself, as sexual idols to worship. Other children receive a far worse fate. Death. I know for some this is more than you can even think to believe, but it is true. I can barely write these words because the pain of the truth is almost more than I can bear. If it wasn’t for the grace and love of Jesus Christ, I would not even be here writing this at all.

You may say “it doesn’t mean that to me”, but you are just fooling yourself.

Could you take a Satanic Black Mass and turn it into a celebration of Jesus?

Of course not.

And yet so many Christians fully embrace Halloween and pretend that there is nothing wrong with it.

For the record, Satanists absolutely love Halloween. The following comes from the official Church of Satan website

Satanists embrace what this holiday has become, and do not feel the need to be tied to ancient practices. This night, we smile at the amateur explorers of their own inner darkness, for we know that they enjoy their brief dip into the pool of the “shadow world.” We encourage their tenebrous fantasies, the candied indulgence, and the wide-ranging evocation of our aesthetics (while tolerating some of the chintzy versions), even if it is but once a year. For the rest of the time, when those not of our meta-tribe shake their heads in wonder at us, we can point out that they may find some understanding by examining their own All Hallows Eve doings, but we generally find it simpler to just say: “Think of the Addams Family and you’ll begin to see what we’re about.”

Satanists consider Halloween to be one of the most important “holidays” of the year. On page 96 of the Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey wrote the following…

“After one’s own birthday, the two major Satanic holidays are Walpurgisnacht (May 1st) and Halloween.”

Isn’t that lovely?

Despite all of this, most Christians in America will happily celebrate Halloween on October 31st. In fact, one recent survey found that just 8 percent of all Christian pastors want their congregations to skip the holiday altogether. Instead, most of them want their members to invite people to a “Christian version of Halloween” at their churches. The following comes from Charisma

Two-thirds (67 percent) encourage church members to invite friends and neighbors to a fall festival, trunk-or-treat or judgment house. Pastors at bigger churches (those with 250 or more in attendance) are most likely to ask church members to invite their neighbors (86 percent) to an event at the church. Those from small churches (50 or less in attendance) are least likely (48 percent).

If the gospel is preached, I am all for people going to church on October 31st. But all too often these “alternative celebrations” are nothing more than repackaged versions of the same Satanic holiday that the world is celebrating. I like how Pastor Jamie Morgan described what our approach to this day should be…

Setting aside a day to celebrate evil, darkness, witchcraft, fear, death and the demonic brings disdain to God. Period. A Christian celebrating Halloween would be like a Satan worshiper putting up a nativity scene at Christmas while singing, “Happy Birthday, Jesus!” The two just don’t go together. Jesus has nothing in common with Satan (2 Cor. 6:14), and neither should we.

And the truth is that God has wanted us to have nothing to do with occult practices from the very beginning. The following is what Deuteronomy 18:9-13 says in the Modern English version

9 When you enter into the land which the Lord your God gives you, you must not learn to practice the abominations of those nations. 10 There must not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or who uses divination, or uses witchcraft, or an interpreter of omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts spells, or a spiritualist, or an occultist, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God will drive them out from before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God.

There will be many people that will read this article and will continue to celebrate Halloween just as they normally do. If that is you, then you need to understand that engaging in dark practices can open up doors to spiritual darkness for yourself and your entire family.

If you do that, then that is your choice, but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

      To be fair he should also mention all the animal sacrifice in the Bible and the fact that Christians used to kill those accused of witchcraft.

      • newmille

        Animal sacrifice good if done by christians – who were not even christians back then. All the blood in the bible. The murder done by your god is something christians should be ashamed of not proud of. Want to see what evil looks like – read the bible. Their god is one of much evil and yet they are blind to the truth. No wonder this country is so violent. They worship this entity and call it good. If only we could rid this country of this belief. Maybe then there would be hope for all of us.

        • P>Hopkins

          Your statement shows that you know nothing of God or his Word. You’d be better served to prayerfully read it for yourself than to listen to others like your…a group of ill-informed miscreants that just pop off with whatever random moronic thought that wafts into their brain.

          • newmille

            No you know nothing of the god you worship. Oh wait most christians worship his son and not the man himself. A clear violation of the 1st commandment. God must be pissed.

          • P>Hopkins

            Oh I know Whom I serve. I certainly wouldn’t be dissuaded by the likes of you who clearly has no understanding of what he’s talking about. All you can do is parrot what others have planted in your head. You believe what you want to believe…I couldn’t care less (which isn’t very Christian of me)…but rest assured that I know that you know NOTHING about what you’re talking about.

          • newmille

            So which do you worship jesus or god? Remember go commanded not to have any other gods before me and even in your NT jesus said he was not god.

            Not to mention if you are to worship the sacrifice (jesus) then in the OT people should have been allowed to worship all the slaughtered animals who were also sinless and who were also killed because of sin and to appease your god who seems to love death and killing.

          • P>Hopkins

            Again…by your statement you prove your ignorance of what is said. Jesus never said He wasn’t God. Not only that but Jesus is prophesized and foreshadowed all throughout the OT. As for your statement about the sacrificed animals…that has to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever read and proves that you are not just ignorant, but silly. Believe whatever you want to believe. Your ignorance is your problem to solve, not mine

          • Paul Patriot

            Great answer. The God haters seem to be coming out of the woodwork more and more….great opportunity to share Truth.

            Grace be with you!

        The shedding of blood was required for the remission of sins (God provided animal skins to Adam and Eve). Israel did this on a national level, but it was no longer required after Jesus died on the cross – a sacrifice made once and for all (Jesus pronounced “it is finished” – the debt and penalty for sin was made – there was no further need for that system of sacrifices – hence, the tearing of the veil to the holy of holies in the Jewish temple).

        • When did G-d provide animal skins to Adam & Eve? Where in all of Genesis did this happen please?

          • LibsMakeMeLaugh!

            Genesis 3:21

          • Well, helloooo, that was after The Fall!

            This thread began with Otis’ point, “all the animal sacrifice in the Bible and the fact that Christians used to kill those accused of witchcraft”, which only makes sense if you keep in mind that PRIOR to The Fall — PRIOR to Adam’s sin — there was no animal-killing, no animal death, no animal skinning.

            As soon as Adam disobeyed G-d, G-d flipped out and the killing began… or more specifically, the permission to kill began.

          • Paul Patriot

            Please stop taking meds…..

            You asked the question where in Genesis, you were given an answer….then you flip out with arrogant sarcasm.

            Well, helloooo, that was after The Fall!

            Chill, your question was answered as asked.

          • Let’s have you sign in using your Disqus account, not a chicken-sockpuppet, AND let’s see your medical degree… otherwise, your impotent little plea regarding my [non-existent] meds is as impotent as… well, you know. We all know.

            I asked where in Genesis this was, and the fact that it’s AFTER The Fall makes it 101% moot to the topic. I’m very sorry if you need this broken down into small enough mental morsels before you can comprehend that. Just know that I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you. That’s where you’re all on your own.

          • Paul Patriot

            Lol! I can see that you don’t criticism! Based on the diatribe of comments in response.

            Your question never eluded to the time frame and context of the fall, so, I think the responder answered correctly, but you in your prideful arrogance had to answer sarcastically.

            The dialog is again reiterated below, seems like a simple question, a simp!le answer, then followed by a sarcastic response. The you answer me rambling on about after the fall, etc, etc, etc.

            You: When did G-d provide animal skins to Adam & Eve? Where in all of Genesis did this happen please?

            Responder: Genesis 3:21

            You: Well, helloooo, that was after The Fall!

          • No, sockpuppet, what I don’t like is avoidance of the topic, whether you were being purposely ignorant or unintentionally so.

            The thread was not about later in the Bible. Please re-read yet again if you are still confused. And stop hiding/trembling behind sockpuppet accounts. I really dislike lowering myself to responding to those people whose opinions are so meaningless and valueless that they cannot even claim ownership of their responses.

            Also, I couldn’t help but notice you *somehow* forgot to include your medical degree, you know, the one that you probably got swindled out of by Trump University.

          • Paul Patriot

            The more you comment the more it reveals about you and your worldview.

            I actually received my degree at Clinton university, but, I knew you would immedietly assume it was Trump university….your comments are very revealing.?

          • Paul Patriot

            Lol!! I have been here since 2008!!!! Long before you appeared! So I have seniority over you, disqus account or not, ?

          • watchmannonthewall

            I really doubt “G-d flipped out”. pretty sure he had it all under control and nothing happened He didnt know was going to happen anyway. Everything went according to plan.

        • watchmannonthewall

          The Apostle Paul provided 15 animals for sacrifice and 10 grain and libation offerings at the request of James, brother of Jesus, in fulfillment of the Nazarite vows (from Numbers 6) taken by 4 men, plus Paul, in Acts 21. This was done about 28-30 years AFTER the death and resurrection of Jesus.

          Apparently either Paul didn’t get the memo that Jesus did away with the sacrifices or we are being taught false doctrine today. You can probably guess where I stand on the issue.

          Additionally, I note Ezekiel chapters 40-48 clearly explains animal sacrifices will be part of the program in Jerusalem during the reign of
          Messiah. Did He not get the memo that He did away with the sacrifices also or does God perhaps look at things far differently than we do? Isaiah did say His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not ours.

          A sacrifice is either an free-will offering indicating a desire to “draw near” to God, the peace and thanksgiving offerings, or is an
          admission of sin, disobedience to the Father’s Instructions (guilt and sin
          offerings), and should be presented with in an attitude of repentance realizing the animal suffered the fate we deserve except for the fact God gave us opportunity to bring a substitute.

          Does either of these, a present given of love and thanksgiving or an indication of repentance for violating Father’s Word, seem like something
          a Father would reject or would not desire from His offspring?

          Still, the best indication of love is obedience to the Father’s Instructions! Then an offering doesn’t
          need to be brought!

          • herder

            Liar. Jesus never did away with any of the OT nonsense. In fact while he was alive the jews were required to follow these things still. So blah, blah, blah. Sheep.

          • watchmannonthewall

            Jesus IS the Word of God, embodied.

            For Him to have done away with any of it, He would have had to condemn Himself as a liar, as a capricious god who changes his mind just like the gods of the Gentiles.

            What kind of god do you serve? Mine doesn’t change! (Mal 3:6 and Heb. 13:8) Even Isaiah 4:2 nd Maicah 2: 4 tells us He will be teaching Torah in the Millennial Kingdom.

            If He did away with the Law, He has no business resurrecting it, does He? it seems many Christians find it challenging to think things through today.

            The Apostle John even tells us, both in John (14:15) and 1 John (5:3), that loving God is obeying His commandments and that they are NOT burdensome. Satan is the father of lies, so when someone teaches something the Bible contradicts, OT & NT, we know of what spirit they are speaking, don’t we?

            Remember, Jesus was quoting the OT when He said we were to love our neigbor as ourselves. That wasn’t new a new revelation! And neither was. “We are to love God, first”!

            It amazes me how many willingly accept 100,000 new pages of law added to the U.S. Federal Register each year and think nothing of it but refuse to obey the 20-30 pages in the OT of God’s Law which hasn’t changed in 3,500 years, perhaps 6,000! After all, wasn’t the lesson given in the Garden, “If you obey me you will live, if you disobey, you will die”? Do you really think God changed that principle/law?

            Teach your children to love you by not listening to you and obeying you so you can be just like you say Jesus is! It is obvious this is the lesson many parents have been downloading into their kids. Greasy grace!

        • samuel

          “The shedding of blood was required for the remission of sins.” Why and for what purpose? Interesting how this theory of shedding innocent blood still follows humans to this day.

          Perhaps that is why our court system allows immoral people to get away with all kinds of bad things. Just say your sorry or admit your guilt and the district attorney will bend over backwards to give you a reduced sentence.

          I think people really don’t understand what forgiveness means which is another reason there is so much evil within the family structure. If families took care of child abusers and wife beaters themselves the world would be a better place. Instead people make excuses for these behaviors, even knowingly allow them to happen and the result is another generation that passes this sickness onto their children and so on.

    • Paul Patriot

      This is the problem today with its relativism and politically correct infected culture., someone preaches truth and you immediately go on the defensive construing it as “judging” and “condemning”

  • watchmannonthewall

    I am with you Michael on this, as well as a few other “holi-days” celebrated today in the U.S. It is unfortunate many will not do the research to find out nearly all of these “holi-days” were at one time rejected as satanic by the protestants that founded the nation. As we as a nation have embraced these satanic days, the nation has turned farther and farther from God.

    God told us His days we are to celebrate and each is a picture about Jesus and His work of redemption. Each one of His days is “the testimony of Jesus”, which is “the spirit of prophesy”. Would to God all His people would testify of Him by keeping His days!

    “As for me and my house, we also will join you and serve the LORD!”

      The thing is some Christian rules are VERY hard to follow. Like “honor thy father and thy mother.” My mom happens to be the type that issues dozens of petty requests each week and it’s almost impossible to obey each thing. This makes some kids rebel.
      Another rule is most music is evil. I quit listening last year and it seems like my Asperger’s has gotten worse a little bit.

      The Christian dress code states men must wear pants but my h. flashes and burning sensations are still sometimes horrible even though it’s not male menopause anymore (I lack T hormone). (There’s herbs to stop it but it’s expensive)

      • watchmannonthewall

        Question: Of the things you mentioned, which ones are straight from the Bible and which ones are man made?
        Do the Scriptureal ones and pray for guidance so you can honor God with your life. If He speaks to you about other areas then obey in that thing. Men bind heavy burdens and then complain about all the rules. Jesus said My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Both are true!

        • kittycat

          Without the tithe there would be less churches. Which would be great! Let’s get rid of tithing. Not to mention the inequality of the 10% required. Not to mention the fact that in the OT they did not give money.

        • Paul Patriot

          I agree, thank you for your comments, the tithe is a yoke put on modern Christians, although I see the principle of generous giving in the NT, it seems to be mostly for the help of the body, and not for building maintenance and multiple staff and admin expenses.

          Too many preachers try to capitalize on the malichi verses to convince people to fill the basket, and add to that warm and fuzzy preaching as to not offend the generous patrons from keeping the money flowing.

          • watchmannonthewall

            Don’t you find it ironic that Malachi was written as correction to the priests who weren’t doing the things God expected them to do? Sound familiar?
            Yet in Chapter 2, I believe, we actually learn something about Levi that is not mentioned anywhere else in scripture!
            It would be great if those who claim to stand in his spot would do the things he did and please God! They should love God so much so He would give them a testimony like He gave Levi! If they were doing this we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in!

        • gmo = organ failure

          1 of the things at church is they teach you have to give 10% to get to heaven unless some special situation. The problem is inflation is making it harder on a lot of people.

          • watchmannonthewall

            That was my point: Too many so-called shepherds hand out man made doctrines and say this is the way one establishes a relationship with the Father. Unfortunately, they just made it up. If you are truely guarding your income and find yourself short, God does not expect you to give. When you are able you should as you will be acting like Him, He gives freely.
            Remember, Jesus rebuked the Pharisees in Mark 7 for establishing a rule that if one devoted something to God, even if their parents had need of what they devoted, they were still required o give it to those in charge of the Temple, and were not to take care of their parents. Problem is, the 5th commandment says to honor your parents. One can’t do this be refusing to help when it is needed.
            When the Pharisees taught one had to break the 5th commandment to give to God, Jesus said, “That is not how you honor My Father!” It requires wisdom to know how one is to walk properly before the Ruler. Ask for wisdom and you will receive it.

    • The days that G-d gave as Holy are now referred to as “Jewish” Holidays, and exceedingly few “Christians” are holy enough to follow them (even though they are the holidays Jesus himself followed).

      Not once in the NT did G-d tell us anything. In fact even in the OT He never mentioned a future Jesus. He mentioned a coming Messiah that would herald the end of the world, yes, and by the fact that the world s still here, this tells anyone who follows G-d’s Word that Jesus was not “the” Messiah. In Jesus’ time, there were literally thousands of yahoos claiming to be the One True Son of G-d. That Son hasn’t been born yet.

      Also, unless you’re a pagan, stop treating Easter and Christmas like your own holidays. If G-d exists, He would be furious that He’s getting pagan hand-me-down holidays.

      • Paul Patriot

        Wow, you really need to study the WORD more. I could give you an entire list of scriptures that would correct your statements above and even more that show that Jesus was predicted in the OT and how many prophecies were fulfilled prior to NT being written, but I dont think you would be able to accept the Truth.

        • My statements are already correct, but you have insufficient knowledge to comprehend that. I’ll hold my four year degree in Christianity and Comparative Religions against what you think you know, any day of the week (except maybe the Sabbath, which according to G-d is SATURDAY ONLY).

          “Jesus” was not predicted; a “Messiah” was. In the times of Jesus — as well as before and to a lesser degree, after — there were thousands of jokers claiming to be that Messiah. The one who got more devotees than the other Messiah-wannabes just got his name in lights, as it were.

          The NT is a sham, a very weak one at that, and what the OT actually predicted was that there would be many pretenders claiming to be the One True Messiah and Son of G-d… Again, the pretender you’re enamored with just duped more people than all of the other myriad pretenders. If you weren’t a sheep-minded non-doctor prescribing medical advice to your superiors online, you’d be able to comprehend this.

          • Paul Patriot

            OK, I apologize I did not realize you were so well educated…..huh? I wonder if the apostle peter had a degree to speak so powerfully in his knowledge of God?

            You sound either Jewish or from one of the cults like Jehovahs Witnesses. You sound like a religious person.

            Or you are a demonic imposter, beacuase I tell you right now you are Not a Christian! I know how to discern the spirits.

            Notbtryinf to judge BUT, Anyone who says the New Testament is a sham, is an unbeliever and guilty of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit as the Holy Spirit is the true author of the NT.

            Please know what you are doing, you are dangerously blaspheming the name of Christ with your demonic alluding that : “the pretender you’re enamored with just duped more people than all of the other myriad pretenders…”

            This “pretender” that I am enamored with, yes I am very much enamored with him, is ” the way the truth and the life, and no ones comes to the father except through him”

            “There is no name under heaven (Yeshua) in which man may be saved”

            So, you are calling the Lord Jesus Christ a pretender, you are blaspheming the Holy Spirit because you say his inspiration of the New Testament is a sham…..

            I pray for yoiyoiur repentance, you are deceived and know nor the dangerous, path you are on that will have eternal consequences unless you repent.

          • Charlie

            Peter did not even write the chapters he is given credit for writing, fool.

          • Paul Patriot

            Ok, Charlie, thanks for the correction…please go back to sleep, because you clearly completely missed the point and context of my mention of Peter.

            I am amazed at how difficult of a time folks like you are having in reading and understanding things before remarking in a way that hints of incompetence.

          • Charlie

            So you admit that Peter and the rest of the apostles had god on earth in the flesh and never bothered to document anything – nor were they told to and then a long time later some people decided to write things down and say god inspired them.

          • Paul Patriot

            I encourage you to study “textural criticism” and see how the Bible stands up next to ALL the other writings of antiquity and how writings of antiquity are scrutinized for authenticity.

            You also need to study a bit about 1st Century culture to really understand how things work in transferring information, and then you will understand the “long time later” in its context and in fact, being a very brief time in the context of antiquity.

          • According to G-d of the Bible, there

            are no other gods but Him. He warned of imposters, he warned against men on earth trying to claim to be go-betweens between G-d and man (i.e., Priests). One can believe all they want in the NT, but the OT blatantly warns against believing in any such pretenders. Note the wild differences between the writing of the only G-d-recited Book versus the non-divinely-inspired second testament.

            You’ve already proven you’re not capable of rational thought, so unless you have a come-to-Wisdom moment, you can go spam other people from now on, sockpuppetboy.

          • watchmannonthewall

            A I said to Paul, you and he need to find common ground. You are both right in some things and wrong in others.

            BTW- the LORD told me when I was 19 not to go to college and learn man’s doctrines but tho study His Word and He would teach me the Truth. If you study men, you wil teach men’s doctrines.

            “Ephriam is oppressed, crushed in judgment, because he was determined to follow the commandments [doctrines] of men.”

            You are right that G-d’s intent was not to establish a “class” of priests. The entire nation was to be a pristhood!

            You and Carrie ned to find common ground. You are both right in some things and wrong in others.

  • gmo = organ failure

    It’s not a sin letting the little children go around the neighborhood and ask for candy or letting them open presents on Christmas. They look forward to getting candy or presents all year long and they’re too young to understand why some adult says “no you can’t get candy or a present.” Just dress them up as something that doesn’t represent evil.
    The murder on TV seems much worse than asking neighbors for candy but then candy isn’t healthy.

    • Joan Camara

      “Just dress them up as something that doesn’t represent evil like an indian”…WTF?? When’s the last time you met an evil indian??
      And I see this article didn’t even soak into your brain.

      • kittycat

        It should have been: Just dress them up as something that doesn’t represent evil, like an indian. Thus meaning indians are not evil. Unless you are the united states government and want their land.

        • Joan Camara

          Oh, ok, that sounds better….and yeah…it’s a shame what the US has done to the Indians throughout history…a criminal shame….

        • On behalf of Native Americans, please never, ever dress up as one for purposes other than participating in tribal events to which you are a longstanding member. According to people who aren’t white, dressing up as another ethnicity for Halloween purposes is literally no different than putting on blackface and painting on red mammy lips to dress up as a Black person.

          Putting on face paint and slapping a few feathers into a headband may seem innocent to non-Native Americans, but please if you must dress up, stay within your own ethnicity. If anyone is confused as to their own ethnicity, just look at what it says on your driver’s license. Claiming your gramma was 1/64 Sioux no more makes you Sioux that it makes you a gramma.

          • Paul Patriot

            Now your getting closer, there may be hope.

            “Putting on face paint and slapping a few feathers into a headband may seem innocent to non-Native Americans”

            My point exactly as it pertains to Christians participating in a satanic holiday, as “it may seem innocent to dress your kids up and parade them around on halloween to get free candy” but, you are “innocently” participating in a dark holiday

          • Halloween is not a dark holiday, and the only ones affiliating it with Satanism are ignorant Christians.

            I don’t think you could catch a clue if it was Crazy-glued to the palm of your hand.

          • Paul Patriot

            OK, just keep thinking Halloween is just an innocent
            Holiday????

            I grew up in an area heavy with new age and occult influence and can attest personally that Halloween is far more than trick or treat asking for free candy.

            I guess all that was just an illusion?

            Ignorantly!

          • vaccine injured asperger

            The Protestant Reformation started on October 31, 1517 so it’s actually one of the greatest Christian days in history! You can give the kids a Christian thing in celebration of this great day.
            Giving something like candy on a certain day of the year is not a sin one day and a non-sin the next day. Or all these Christians who won’t celebrate Easter or Christmas because there was pagan history (at least for Christmas). I don’t get it.

          • gmo = organ failure

            People should be allowed to do anything they want as long as they’re not hurting someone else. At least since I was like 6 years old I’ve thought that. One big reason police states emerge is because the human species always wants to tell others how to live. Most everyone has an idea on some law banning an additional behavior and over time each new law adds up. I think the only solution to the problem of humans controlling humans is extinction which unfortunately (or fortunately) might happen during WW3.

          • No. People should not do anything we want, especially since that opinion comes directly from the mind of a six-year-old. We all had ignorant little beliefs at that age, and that is why we wait until a smidgen of maturity occurs before we like people to make important life choices like joining the military or becoming a parent.

            Also, unlike most people on this site, *I* do not speak of criminalizing actions or behaviors, so dial that accusation way back when specifically addressing me. I am not for banning much at all, especially when educating people to become better, smarter citizens would be vastly superior to the claim you’re making about controlling people via laws. I am a Conservative Libertarian who would greatly prefer people both wise up and mind their own business than stay dumbed down and hurting others on Earth out of sheer ignorance.

          • gmo = organ failure

            I heard something like Sigmund Freud said a human forms their basic opinions they hold for the rest of their life when they’re somewhere around that age. Apart from religion, it wouldn’t bother me what anyone does as long as they’re not harming others or animals or doing something that causes indirect harm like destroying the last remaining wilderness. If someone wants to watch kid stuff on their computer, who cares? If they want to burn the flag, who cares? Let their kid sip beer, or anything else then do what they want.
            However the harming others part includes countless things that have to be illegal like driving on the wrong side of the road, dropping rocks on passing cars, labeling a supplement as something when it’s not, vaccines with mercury, blasting music all night long when neighbors want to sleep,

          • Freud’s theories have been questioned and abolished over the last few decades… some for good reason.

            Having said that, you can’t go around saying that you think there should be no restrictive laws governing people’s actions, then turn around and say, “Oh but there should totes be loads of restrictions and laws against the things I don’t like to think of people doing”. FWIW, I entirely agree with each thing you mention should be free or restricted (except maybe the kid stuff on the computer if you mean kid/adult stuff, then no way).

            It being my opinion, I prefer the idea of people doing as they want, as long as they don’t want to hurt anyone or violate others. But making that concept into a set of laws would be too similar to the set up we all suffer under now.

          • vaccine injured asperger

            Basically i’m against victimless crimes. As far as kid stuff viewing on computer (just 1 example of a victimless crime) that’s actually legal in other parts of the world. Crimes that don’t have a clear victim never seem to exist worldwide.
            Freud’s idea that a human forms their basic opinions (or whatever it was he said?) at an early age has so far held up for me. When I was like around age 7 I said I would never get married (I didn’t), I liked books (still do), hated sports (still do), loved wilderness (still do), etc.

          • Freud’s theory that our basic opinions throughout life are formed before adolescence does not mean that our opinions are correct. It is more for behaviorists (including criminal behaviorists) to explain away why people like Jeffrey Dahmer and Ermin Mewes would eat people, while Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell would become vegetarians.

            As for watching kiddie-you-know-what online (oh, how I’d hoped you didn’t mean that), it is not even close to being victimless. The more activity that compulsion-prone people are exposed to, the more they seek it out in real life. For instance, I had no interest at all in sky-diving my whole life. Then one of our kids said he’d love our whole family to do it together. (He’d been watching videos since before he came into our family.) I started watching the videos, mostly so I could tell him what an artificial ‘high’ it was, and how quickly it was over, and how the cost is not even near worth it… but the more I watched the videos, the more I really, really felt like I was missing out on it; end result is we have gone sky-diving every spring & summer break since then.

            The same goes for “out there” p 0rn. Many people who had never committed certain acts only ever worked up the nerve by watching related videos over and over and over. Animals, kids, snuff, crushing, etc., no one easily comes to these outlets w/o having been repeatedly exposed to it voluntarily in their own homes and with a pleasure pay-off (you know, the “spurty” kind). Watching kid-stuff online is ANYTHING but victimless. The kids who were victimized in the vids and pics would shatter your testes with their Doc Martens if they heard you claim that.

          • shot injured eunuch

            A number of countries don’t lock their fellow humans in a cage for 60 years based on what they click on a virtual screen. The other problems with this law is hackers can store it on someone else’s computer. The feds can do the same thing if they want to frame a political activist. The other problem is some of the under 18s themselves have become “criminals” because they all have a camera phone now.

            A ton of people watch murder & violence on their screens, but very few who do kill or are violent in real life. Killing is 1000 times worse than reproduction stuff because the person stays dead forever. One study on Time website (if I remember) even found that creeps that do virtual stuff are less likely to do it in real life.

            As far as adults abusing kids in the real world now that is a problem because there is a real victim–just like all the kids who get autism or die after their Merek injections.

            The other thing is I don’t have testes. I guess no one here believes me but on Youtube search unic-ks (blocked word) of imperial China and click show more in the comments section and my name is mo oret. I put some details there that I could only know if I was fixed.

          • “A number of countries” which have different cultures may not lock up their citizens for sixty years for childp 0rn, but they do castrate them or murder them. Plus, C.P. infractions here can get you as little as time served. Sixty years is a pipe dream.

            Calling ra pe “less bad than murder because murder keeps you dead” is sickening. Also, referring to molestation & ra pe as “reproductive stuff” makes me strongly believe you have a severe mental disability. Neither of those atrocities have one singular thing to do with “reproduction”, especially since little kids can’t even GET pregnant, no matter how many rap!sts hold them down and force their $emen inside of them, you sicko.

            The reason why watching p0 rn (of any sort) is completely different from watching glorified violence on TV/movies is because of that “spurty” pay-off that follows the p0 rn-watching. If random people jerked it after watching Dateline NBC, then yes, murder rates would go up because watching something — ANYTHING — which you follow up with “spurty” pay-offs as a reward will MAKE any normal person much, much more prone to the behavior that they just jerked to. NO reputable clinician will claim that creeps who do virtual stuff are less prone to doing it in person. ALL reputable clinicians will promise you that watching you-know-what GUARANTEES seeking it out in person sooner rather than later.

            Good to know about your 3unich status. I kept two of you prior to my marriage. I later sold them on CollarMe back when it was still called CollarMe.

            I never have cared what someone does on their electronic device, only if they do something to someone in the real world then it matters. Their device, let them click what they want. You’re probably an older woman so you have more conservative views. Each American generation tends to get a bit more tolerant on social issues. I once spoke to someone a few years younger than me & he seemed to agree with me he doesn’t care what people have virtually.
            The only reason i’m fixed is cause my family has the complete balding condition & DHT was making me lose it & I figured out I could beat nature.

          • I have dozens of photos of yoo-nick-status slaves; putting a photo online proves nothing unless you can successfully illustrate that it was YOU in the photo.

            I recall in the earliest days of either FetLife or CollarMe, many would-be slaves had oodles of post-surgical you-nick pics in their profiles as things they wanted to happen to them. Few of them had been personally castr4ted themselves.

            BTW, the ones I’d owned specifically said the specific reason that they wanted the surgery was because of constant, nearly uncontrollable thoughts of acting upon the childp 0rn they had enjoyed watching. P0 rn DOES cause people to want to act upon what they see. It doesn’t force anyone; many can watch atrocities online and be able to control urges to imitate the acts. Alas, for those who can’t control themselves, there is castr4tion.

            “yoo-nick-status slaves”
            Being a eunuch has nothing to do with libido for a man (at least after the libido hormone is gone). My libido is so drained that a normal person can’t even imagine what it’s like. I used the J & S tools tri-bannder because my brother & dad (mostly dad cause he’s way older) are almost totally bald & it was coming for me next. I got gangrene & ended up talking to the shrink cause the urologist or other doc probably thought i’m crazy. This is the only way to cure hair loss is be a eunuch or join the bald men’s club. I normally like my hair short & will literally do anything I can afford to stop aging.

            Actually i think the red wine variety and or Dr. Schulze’s SuperMeal is helping reduce my mild Asperger’s. Too bad I have to hide the wine because it’s Christian at home (maybe mom would accept it but i not taking chances). Hiding it is a minor hassle.
            Sorry for over-commenting.

          • Well, on behalf of those cas-trati I once owned, libido has EVERYTHING to do with getting banded (I knew that would not trigger censors here). When you have outrageous attraction to children and cannot psychiatrically shake it, a permanent solution is called for.

            The Elastrator worked where chemical c_str_tion failed.

          • autistic eunuch

            It was all about stopping hairloss and it worked. Everything else for me was just a side effect.

      The fact that you participated and went alongf with a “holiday” that represents more than gathering candy, is troubling that you call yourself christian.

      In myt prayers that your eyes will be opened

        • Paul Patriot

          Great, but, participating in candy finding on that very day, following the world is participating with something that has much darker meaning that simp!y dressing up and getting candy.

          This is how Satan deceives, he masks things to makje them look good so that undiscerning Christians participate thinking it is all! In innocence and by doing so, they lose their light and salt
          And testimony, and look no different than the world.

          problem today is too many folks are ignorant of history and the real roots of things.

          Please learn the history of this “holiday” and please, if you say you love the Lord, stop participating in haloween….your kids could get candy any oither day of the year.

          Praying for you.

            Nothing wrong with me, and thanks for talking to me like I am a child and calling me a moron, your lack of manners is incredible. Your response troubles me as you like many are missing the point. The point being that you dress up and thus observe cultural halloween to get free candy…..my point was, is Christians should examine their convictions before dressing up theri kids and participating in Halloween which is diametrically opposed to the tenants of Christianity, simple enough???

          • Likewise, proud ignoramus, do look up the proud pagan roots of Christmas and Easter, stop handing Satan the joy of your ignorance every time you say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Easter”, knowing that they are no less Satanic holidays than Halloween or the Solstices.

            wow!! you really need to chill!!!

            I avoid celebrating Christmas and Easter holidays as well.

          • gmo = organ failure

            I’m fixed and can’t have kids. My family does look different than others: women wear long dresses & men wear pants (or supposed to). Actually it’s kinda embarrassing sometimes (at least no uniform like Amish). One church has dressed up as Bible people. I guess it would be taking a pagan day and using it to teach Christianity. That way it’s not being used to promote pagan stuff although most have no problem taking a child to get candy or handing it out or carving a pumpkin just for fun. My mom even has dreams & they later happen & a lot of other stuff so I know she’s Christian. She doesn’t like Halloween but giving or getting candy is ok if someone wants to do it. I don’t get it why u don’t celebrate Christmas & Easter. Pagans might have celebrated Christmas but this is also a celebration of when the 3 men gave presents 4 Jesus. Just because pagans do something 1000 years ago doesn’t mean Christians can’t get a present. I think avoiding every single thing would be getting into legalism?
            I like holidays cause I get 1.5 pay but I don’t really like them cause it means another year has passed and i’m older. As far as celebrating I feel like it’s a waste of time like sports but I don’t normally care what others do. As far as each person doing what they want (talking about non-Christian stuff) the Bible teaches each person is on free moral agency and can do whatever they want.

        • I went to parochial schools, and they had a way of addressing Halloween without touching on the phony-baloney esoterics of October 31. Each year, we got to (or, had to) dress up as a “Great American” and prepare a one-page report on the person we chose.

          The kids still had the fun of dressing up and also looking at classmates’ costumes, but we were all historical figures. Lame, yes, but it was hardly the lamest thing our parochial schools did.

      • watchmannonthewall

        I know of many! Deluded and not founded on the foundation of scripture.

  • robert

    I tend to think most pastors/preachers want to keep their jobs so they do not stir the congregation pot lest they suddenly be without their pulpit. I also tend to believe that most people, perhaps “christians” as well, do not believe in the supernatural whereas Wiccans and Satan worshipers do. Genuine Christians must believe in the supernatural else they are left with nothing to stand upon. The Bible is full of the supernatural to include witches.

    While I am wasting my time, let me just say to the folks who essentially judge God and His actions that Christians must believe in the ultimate sovereignty of a Creator God. That means God can act anyway that pleases Him to include wiping out entire populations or allowing humankind to do it. The problem is, no one likes having a sovereign God. So, men make themselves their own god and spend a life time in self-worship.

    Michael is thinning the ranks of readers. Such is the price of belief.

    Good article Michael. I’ll use the day to speak about Christ, we should do that everyday of course.

    Thank G-d 100% of Orthodox Jews and 100% of Orthodox rabbis don’t observe halloween. We all know it is demonic and stay away from anything that is occult. We even find, no insults to anyone intended, December 24/25 as occult and don’t observe it either. May G-d destroy all evil today and have mercy on those that engage in it unknowingly.

    • kittycat

      Too bad orthodox men think of their women as baby machines and force them to be the bread winner also while they spend their time studying.

        unfortunately that is the case in many circles, but not in lubavitch. the men work and the women only work if they want to. and it is their choice to have more babies. i think you should talk to some lubavitch families; you will end apologizing for your remarks.

    • I am not Jewish myself, but I am a spiritual person, and I believe, from a little of what I’ve read, that Halloween is a deeply negative influence and should best be avoided, especially by young children.

  • “But even our “innocent” Halloween traditions such as dressing up in costumes, “trick or treating” and carving jack-o’-lanterns all have their roots in ancient pagan practices.”

    Very true, and Christmas and Easter have identically pagan roots as well.

    • Hey Tatiana- to answer your question, evil and sin are one and the same thing. The Bible says sin is the transgression of the law. That means evil works against the principles of God’s law. God’s law in Exodus 20 says to honor your father and mother, don’t kill, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t lie, don’t covet.

      On the surface it looks like a bunch of restrictive rules that say, ‘don’t do this, don’t do that,’ etc. But what God is really saying is this:

      ‘Because I love you, I have given you rights as a human being. No one is allowed to kill you, steal from you, lie to you, or even covet your stuff. If you are married, no one is allowed to chase after your spouse, and if you have children, they are required to honor you.’

      Evil infringes on these protective rights- rights that not only you have, but also everyone else around you.

      • Tatiana Covington

        Right minus might equals zero.

      • kittycat

        So god murdering thousands of women, children and men to give the jews their land is not evil?

        • Paul Patriot

          You don’t understand the character of God and his holiness…..frankly, he can do whatever he wants with his creation.
          I would encourage you to learn the character of God, and then seek the CONTEXT and reasoning why he did what he did, before you think about pointing a finger at a Holy God and insinuating and accusing his actions as “evil”

          • Kittycat

            “frankly, he can do whatever he wants with his creation.”

            Ironically there are many parents that believe the same thing about their kids. Your god is an excellent teacher.

        • Paul Patriot

          Wow, your hatred of thes living God and Israel is disturbingly blatant

  • Jim Davis

    Evangelicals, let the kids have some FUN! If you over-nutter them, they will eventually rebel and turn out like Katy Perry.

    • Paul Patriot

      Incorrect, this lax attitude and mindset is one reason the church has lost its impact on culture, by an apethetic, lax view on holiness, righteousness, and living uncompromising lives that do not conform to the word, let alone engage in activities that seem innocent, (to the world), but only show gods people committing spiritual fornication with the world.

      Too much compromise and fear have made the church ineffective.

      • Jim Davis

        I grew up celebrating Halloween and I believe I’ve turned out OK. On the other hand, Katy Perry was raised by a holy roller pastor, and turned out well you see how she turned out.

      Rebellion is sometimes very true. The Christian group I was born in is very strict almost like Mennonite or Amish. One of my close relatives quit and went from a normal conservative to like a communist and now hates Christians. I rebelled like after high school and became nud-ist & didn’t even feel comfortable around them. I’ve been trying to change now but hard to give everything up.

  • SantosGarcia

    Truly Halloween is not for true believers; and yet-
    QUOTE: “In light of the history of both Halloween and the Reformation, it seems appropriate during this time to remember and rejoice over those who have died in Christ, both heroes of the faith and loved ones – for in biblical terms, all Christians are called “saints” and the blessing of heaven awaits us after death (until God gives us new glorious bodies to live on a new earth).” https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2014/10/27/the-christian-origins-of-halloween/

  • Charlie

    The son of god is not god. Never can be and never will be. All christians are worshipping a false god and he is very, very angry about this. You are in violation of the 1st commandment where god said do not worship any other gods. Christianity is almost like the catholic worship of mary.

    • Paul Patriot

      Please re study the claims of Jesus, and see that he is either who he says is, or he is not, and he claimed to be God in flesh

      • Charlie

        NO HE DID NOT CLAIM TO BE GOD IN THE FLESH. STOP LYING.

        • Whether Jesus claimed it or not, he most certainly is NOT G-d, whether in the flesh or otherwise. You are correct that Jesus freaks are unwittingly violating G-d’s commandment against the worship of false idols. And Catholicism does this blatantly, not just in regards to their belief that Jesus is of any consequence, but also in their idolatry of their many “saints”.

          How they can even purport to be with G-d blows the mind.

        • Paul Patriot

          Stop YOUR heresy and blaspheming against the Holy Spirit!!!!!

          Jesus did go around saying, “I am God I am God”……he went about claiming to Be God in a way that the listeners should have known, based on the prophecies predicting his a coming.

          You are proof that the apostacy prophesied about is coming to pass.

          Repent of your ways, and make sure you know that Jesus was more than a mere man.

          If he was not God in flesh, than the cross was an ineffective waste of time, and the Christian fairtfairth is a hoax.

          • Charlie

            You repent, liar.

          • Paul Patriot

            I know where I am going, so no problem if you want to insult me and continue to block your eyes and ears…..No worries.

          • Charlie

            Keep worshiping the sacrifice instead of the actual god and you will be surprised where you end up. Study history to learn just how duped you are your fellow christians are. No wonder your kind is referred to as sheep – can’t get any more ignorant. You are in violation of the 1st commandment. You should be ashamed of yourself.

          • Paul Patriot

            Huh? Curious how you seem to have such a hard time understanding simno!lw verbiage.

            I have no clue where the reference to”the sacrifice” came from????I worship Jesus Christ, and the scripture attributes worship of Jesus as God.
            So I worship God in spirit and truth.

            You are very anti Christian or maybe you are Jewish….or maybe you subscribe to Islam…..

            Your hatred for Jesus Christ is crystal clear, and when we both die, then we will find out who was right and who was wrong…for me, I will trust in the resurrected Messiah, who claimed himself to be “the way, the truth and the life”
            .

            Jesus is both God AND the sacrifice.

            That is why God [(the Father) put Abraham to sleep in Genesis 15 when He, as the Son, made the covenant with Abraham AND with his descendents to give him the Land.

            It was “a smoking oven and a flaming torch’ which passed between the pieces of the sacifices while Abraham was sleeping, i.e., God was going to keep BOTH sides of the covenant. He didn’t let Abraham fufill his part of walking through the pieces on purpose!

            This was the way covenants were made in that day and both parties walked through the pieces of the animals and their blood, symbolically stating, “May what has happened to these animals happen to me if I do not keep the terms of this covenant.”
            The pre-incarnate Messiah walked through the pieces and He was the one who paid the penalty in the NT when Abraham’s descendents did not keep the covenant terms. He agreed to die in Abraham and his descendents’ places in the OT and then actually did it in the NT.

            The reason we know the covenant made at Sinai was merely a reaffirmation of the Abrahamic covenat is that God revealed Himself in exactly the same way: the top of the mountain was all on fire- a flaming torch, and the mountain was all in smoke…and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace”, just like what happened with Abraham in Genesis 15. There is much more in Exodus and Deuteronomy evidencing this was simply a reaffirmation but no need to list all of these verses.

            Paul also said (Gal. 3:15-18) that once the Abrahamic covenat was ratified by God, what happened at Sinai couldn’t change it. Of course not, the terms were the same; obedience in return for blessing and eternal life!

            There are no contradictions in scripture.

        • watchmannonthewall

          Of course He did! When He said, Your sins are forgive thee” He clearly said the sin was against Him! The only one who can forgive sin is the One against whom the sin was committed, which means the One who made the determination about what sin consists of, doesn’t it?

      • Charlie

        Mark 10:18 Why do you call me good? Jesus asked him. “No one is good except God alone.

        • Paul Patriot

          John 1:1, isiah 7:14, 9:6, john 13:13, John 10:30, john 14:9-10, john 20:28 (notice jesus didn’t rebuke him), 2 Corinthians 4:4, Colossians 1:14-17, Philippians 2:6 , Colossians 2:9 , Timothy 3:16 , Zechariah 12:10 , Luke 5:21, John 8:58 (note context for hearers), john 17:5 etc. Etc.

          But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Hebrews 1:8

          Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:13

        • Paul Patriot

          Exactly , one the many ways Jesus revealed himself as God, since he was good, and no knew is good exept God.

          You and I or anyone for that matter is ” good”

          So, either Jesus was acknowledging divinity, or he was admitting that he was not good.

      The Biblical first commandment is, “I am the LORD your God who bought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.”
      The RC 1st commandment is the one you quoted.
      The 1st commandment says, “I am the Creator, and I deserve to be honored as such. I gave you life and liberty! Do you owe Me anything?”

      • Charlie

        OK but that was NOT jesus. Got it? Good.

  • Cj

    Christmas and Easter are just as pagan and evil.

  • Pam

    Thank you Michael for speaking the truth. It is obvious why America is headed to hell – because the church has lost her salt and light.

    • jax

      If the church needs salt and light they can pick both up at any wal-mart in their area.

  • Charlie

    Jesus is not god. Please stop worshiping the creation instead of the creator.

  • L. A. McDonough

    We will not hand out candy for trick or treat. Many in my subdivision are sick of three hours long treating and older kids that shouldn’t be out doing it. We will shut lights off and go to the back of the house and read or watch tv travel or animal shows (nat-geo) and other educ. shows. Over 300 kids a year and not worth the time. Some churches are having parties Mon. nite.
