Default Halloween

I recieved this email today. It is good nuggets like this that make me stay on my Christian Email groups. It makes forum drama look like childs play.

Here is an email I got today. I feel it is my civic duty to share with you all as a warning

Quote:
a reminder that this is a very high holiday for druids and those who worship Satan. How do they worship Satan? dress up, get wasted, and sacrifice human beings. Does this happen in every house, No... but as we know not all are real followers of Jesus who walk the walk and there are real followers of Satan who KILL. just saying...




In respone to the video,


It's never okay to be someone who you aren't. You can dress however you want. Halloween is a tradition based on satanic rituals. that doesn't mean that going to a party is a satanic ritual (depending on the party) but NOW is a good time to be interceding against people doing things that they would not ordinarily do. LIKE taking drugs, over drinking, sleeping around, etc, or offenders that might kidnap, rape, drug, or kill in the name of satan.

I know!

I also want to know who told them Halloween was about devil-worship. At SC2, every day is devil-worship day amirite?

This is how I responded.

Quote:
Christmas itself was originally a pagan Holiday. We changed the date of Jesus's birth to suit the non-believers.



Dressing up and being someone else for the day is not an evil act. We are not performing sacrifices. It is putting smiles on my kids faces. What harm can be done from that?



I think this is the biggest challenge of Christianity. I think such accusations is a big turn off to people who are not believers. They see a group of Christians proclaiming something innocent as evil and look at Christianity as nothing but a group of judgemental people. I have been participating in Halloween for all 40 years in my life. I have never once seen a sacrifice, I have never once run into a druid and I certainly never have worshiped Satan. It is a chance for my kids to play dress up and get free candy. Thats is all. There is nothing more to it than that.



I love haunted houses. I love scaring kids that come to my door for candy. I love horror flicks. This does not mean I am evil or have a satanic mindset. Jesus knows our hearts. It is not about worshiping the devil for me. It is about fun.



Christmas Trees, Yule Logs, Christmas Wreaths, Misletoes, and yes even some of the Carols we sing were all Pagan rituals. Is Christmas evil now as well? Should we particapte in none of the rituals we have become acustomed to?



I don't think God is worried about such things. I think he knows us all personally and what is on our heart. I think he knows our motives. I think anytime we gather and do something to put a smile on one of his childrens faces, his heart warms up.



Adam I get what your saying. Truth is however, people drink, sleep around, prey on children and do evil things 365 days a year.

Well of COURSE you've never run into a druid Beau!

aside from small bits and pieces of their lore, they're long gone!

Neo Druidism however ....

If these people ever met a real Satanist, they would be so fucking disappointed.

(not that Luc is disappointing or anything, but no, he wasn't cleaning baby flesh from his teeth with a toothpick when he picked me up at the airport, bummer)

There were a couple of "satanists" in my middle/high school. They liked to brag about rituals they never actually did and draw upside-down crosses on their arms and notebooks with ink pens and conspicuously carry around LaVey's "satanic bible" so as many people as possible could see them with it; it was pretty absurd but generally harmless attention-getting.

To the people making these arguments, if the idea/practice/tradition/fact didn't spring forth in whole from the pages of the bible, then it must be satanic.
