Another reason for skipping Halloween is its growing influence: It’s now the second most popular American celebration right behind Christmas. What’s driving its magnetism? Spiritual deception on a grand scale may be at work and such trends call for heightened Christian discernment.
We all can see [Halloween is] a huge celebration in the LGBT world, especially for the gender-confused folks. This illustrates some of the problem. The core of Halloween is glittering artificiality—you can pretend to be someone you aren’t for a night. You can flirt with danger. You can divine a different destiny.
But it is all void of the presence of or will of God. It’s a seduction that says, ‘don’t be afraid, do whatever you want, there’s nothing to fear.’ It’s one of Satan’s oldest tricks.”
