Christians Celebrating Halloween

Episode 43
Should Christians Celebrate Halloween?

From the Show

What is the best way to gain victory over Satan?

Michael Horton – "Sometimes the devil really has us over a barrel, laughing all the way to the bank, when we spend so much time focusing on demons and hexes, all of these things, when really Satan's greatest time is spent on trying to lead the church into subtle distortions of the truth of the gospel.”

Adriel Sanchez- “He wants to take our eyes off of Jesus. Think about what John said in 1 John, ‘The spirit of the antichrist is in the world already,’ right now.”

Michael Horton – “Absolutely. We're not talking about ouija boards here, ‘Okay, here, have fun [playing] with this.’ No, I’m not talking about stepping over the line and playing with the demonic world. But we are saying this: if you go to a church where you don't hear the gospel preached, that's where Satan reigns."‚Äč
