People love Halloween, but what does the Bible say about it?
My neighborhood is littered with ghosts, goblins, and ghouls. People love this holiday. Who doesn’t like a bucket of Tootsie Rolls!
Does the Bible talk about Halloween?
Not directly. The Bible was written long before the phrase, “Trick or Treat.” People celebrate Halloween, to some degree, because they’re fascinated with good vs. evil, death, and the afterlife.
The Bible does talks about a spirit realm
- Not ghosts, goblins, or haunted houses, but rather a spirit world with Satan and his demons, battling against God.
- Good battling against evil.
- The flesh battling against the spirit.
- Death itself is not the end, but the beginning of something eternal.
Halloween is more than costumes and candy
- It’s a reminder there’s more to life than what we see.
- It’s a reminder that death is real.
- It’s a reminder that good and evil exists.
- It’s a reminder that we’re more than flesh and bones, we’re spiritual.
The Bible teaches victory in the end
- Good wins over evil
- Life conquers death
- God defeats Satan and his demons
- In Jesus Christ, we are more than conquerors
- We’re to fear no evil, for His rod and staff comfort us, Psalm 23
As you “Trick or Treat” and eat all those skittles, think about the deeper elements that lie within.
Romans 8:37, “in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”
