Episode 812 Show Notes 

From the Show

I’ll be honest: my family has trick-or-treated the last several years. I see it as a good opportunity to get to know my neighbors and also to collect a hefty candy tax from my children!

Should Christians Fear Halloween?

Questions in this Episode

  1. My boyfriend asked me, “what is the proof that you know that you have the Holy Spirit”? My answer was that you have a helper that equips you to interpret the Bible. But I am not 100% sure about this. Is there a better way to know if you have the Holy Spirit?
  2. With Halloween approaching, what does the Bible say about Halloween and how a person should handle their little ones around such an occasion?
  3. I have heard people say that the Mark of the Beast is spiritual, not physical. If that’s the case, how could it be used for buying or selling, as Revelation says, if it is not physical?
  4. Do saints in heaven see what is going down on earth?
  5. I wanted to know, is it possible for someone to separate after they’ve been together for so long because they don’t agree with the other person’s views on Christianity? Should I be with someone who is more godly?
