If celebrating Halloween is evil because of its connotations with pagan deities (i.e., demons), then I have to ask:
- Does that mean that demonic warfare exists today?
If it does, then what does that make of the claim that “the miraculous spiritual gifts have ceased?” Surely we don’t want to say that the children and practitioners of Satan have more power than the children of the light? I agree with the critic of Halloween: we should not commune with evil. But that begs the question: is evil really a danger today? If it is, and we must say it is, then we need to rethink our views on warfare against the powers.
If it isn’t, then who cares?
