We're In For A Most Horrible Night

Today, the Christian Broadcasting Network web site published a piece by Kimberly Daniels, who appears to be a frequent contributor, in which she warns us about the dangers of celebrating Halloween.

What's that? The link I provided can't be found? Well, fortunately The Google can help us out here. It's the bain of all the wish-I-could-take-it-back publishers and it's known as Google cache. So here's the article. I don't understand why CBN would take back the dire warnings of this night.

Some excerpts:

Lucifer is a part of the demonic godhead. Remember, everything God has, the devil has a counterfeit. Halloween is a counterfeit holy day that is dedicated to celebrating the demonic trinity of : the Luciferian Spirit (the false father); the Antichrist Spirit (the false holy spirit); and the Spirit of Belial (the false son).

...

During this period demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities. These demons are automatically drawn to the fetishes that open doors for them to come into the lives of human beings. For example, most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.

...

Mother earth is highly celebrated during the fall demonic harvest. Witches praise mother earth by bringing her fruits, nuts and herbs. Demons are loosed during these acts of worship. When nice church folk lay out their pumpkins on the church lawn, fill their baskets with nuts and herbs, and fire up their bonfires, the demons get busy. They have no respect for the church grounds. They respect only the sacrifice and do not care if it comes from believers or non-believers.

...

Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil that masquerades behind the fictitious characters of Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist. I have prayed for witches who are addicted to drinking blood and howling at the moon.

...

The word "occult" means "secret." The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:

* Sex with demons
* Orgies between animals and humans
* Animal and human sacrifices
* Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
* Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
* Revel nights
* Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
* Release of "time-released" curses against the innocent and the ignorant.

How true and somewhat ironic. The danger of Halloween is not the scary things we see, but in the secret activities that go on behind the scenes. I wonder if CBN realizes that you can use Google cache to look there.

None of that is Biblically based. I want to know where she made that up from. Halloween is just another day. It's how you choose to celebrate (or not celebrate) it that makes it evil or good. Dont give the devil so much credit. God knows our hearts, satan doesnt. God knows if we are using the day as a family fun or out to do evil before we even wake up. Satan is NOT all knowing.

I for one am thankful the Christian radio staff were smart enough to realize that not everyone uses this day as some way to get a hold of the evil forces out there or what not.

It is not a most horrible night. It can be a great way to have family fun and use the many teachable moments tonight offers to show your own children that a day is what you make of it. It's our HEARTS that matter. Giving this day over to satan gives him way too much power. This is still a day that GOD has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.... even if you choose not to celebrate it. After all you can bet most the kids out there on the streets aren't thinking "YAY A day to celebrate satan!" They are most likely thinking "FREE CANDY! WOO!"
Teach your kids that any day can be God's day, even a day others assume is satans. Because after all, God made the day.

Autumn,

I'm thinking I didn't convey just how facetious I was trying to be. I hope you're not thinking I'm serious about the accuracy of Ms. Daniels' bizarre statements.

Autumn said...

Oh. Haha. No I thought you were all for what she was saying. I'm sorry, I thought you truly believed everything she had said.

Hank, even though I knew you were being facetious, I also agree with Autumn: it's our hearts that matter.
