Should Christians Be Celebrating Halloween?

Looking At Halloween From The Bible’s Perspective

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [them]. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.” Ephesians 5: 11,12

Ancient Druids. Many Christians celebrate holidays, such as Halloween, without thinking about their origins or true meaning. It is impossible to separate Halloween from the Druids because they originated the “holiday.” For several hundred years before Christ, the Celts inhabited what is now France, Germany, England, Scotland and Ireland. Celtic priests were called Druids. These people were eventually conquered by the Romans. Information about the Celts and Druids comes from Caesar and the Roman historians, Greek writings from about 200 B.C., and very early records found in Ireland. Greek and Roman writings about the Druids dwell heavily on their frequent and barbaric human sacrifices. The ancient Irish texts say little about human sacrifices, but detail the Druids’ use of magic to raise storms, lay curses on places, kill by the use of spells, and create magical obstacles.

Human Sacrifices. Davies, however, a 16th century writer who traced his family lineage directly back to Druid priests who fought against Caesar, clearly describes the human sacrifices of his ancestors and the secret sacrifices still performed regularly by the Druids of his time. By 47 A.D., Rome finally defeated the Druids in Britain and outlawed human sacrifices. The few remaining Druids went underground. Today a growing group of people claiming to be of direct Druid descent, still practice their religion, including human sacrifice. Those in England still perform ceremonies at Stonehenge.

November 1st was the Celtic new year. October 31st was celebrated by the Druids with many human sacrifices and a festival honoring their sun god and Samhain, the lord of the dead. They believed that the sinful souls of those who died during the year were in a place of torment, and would be released only if Samhain was pleased with their sacrifices.

Monks Fascinated By Druids. Irish records tell of the fascination the Catholic monks had with the powerful Druids, and Druids soon became important members of their monasteries. Pope Gregory the Great decided to incorporate the Druids’ holiday into the church. He made the proclamation, “They are no longer to sacrifice beasts to the devil, but they may kill them for food to the praise of God, and give thanks to the giver of all gifts for His bounty.” Pope Gregory III moved the church festival of October 31st to November 1st and called it All Hallows or All Saints’ Day. Pope Gregory IV decreed that the day was to be a universal church observance. The term Halloween comes from All Hallows Eve.

The founding fathers of America refused to permit the holiday to be observed because they knew it was a pagan holiday. Halloween was not widely celebrated in the U.S. until about 1900. In the 1840’s there was a terrible potato famine in Ireland which sent thousands of Catholic Irish to America. They brought Halloween with them. The modern custom of going from door to door asking for food and candy goes back to the time of the Druids. They believed that sinful, lost souls were released upon the earth by Samhain for one night on October 31st while they awaited their judgment. They were thought to throng about the houses of the living and were greeted with banquet-laden tables. People greatly feared these spirits and thought that the spirits would harm and even kill them if the sacrifices they gave did not appease Samhain. They carved demonic faces into pumpkins or large turnips, placing a candle in them to keep the evil spirits away from their homes.

The tradition of bobbing for apples and giving out nuts came from a Roman addition to the Druidic New Year’s eve. The Romans worshiped Pomona who was the goddess of the harvest. They combined their harvest festival to Pomona with Halloween. Very little archeological evidence of the Druids has been found, but there is excellent agreement between the Roman and Irish documents. Both clearly state that the knowledge of the Druids was never committed to writing but passed from generation to generation by oral teaching. This was to protect their secrets. In his writings, Davies indicates that he came under much persecution by his family for putting in writing his information about Druids. The same is true today. Nothing is put into writing. The Druids continue on secretly with much the same traditions.

The widespread problem of harmful substances such as razor blades, drugs, poisons, needles, etc. being placed in the Halloween treats here in America is no accident. Testimonies of several ex-Satanists show that these children killed and injured by the “treats” are sacrifices to Satan (or Samhain). Satanists throughout the world continue to perform human sacrifices on Halloween. Is this something you want YOUR child to participate in?” source – Chick Publications

    The Druids would pull a bloody corpse around with them to the homes asking for a family member to be sacrificed, if one didn’t give up a member they were hexed with a red bloodied hexagram on the building and cursed. Those given up were given one chance to live without having their head cut off with a sword. They would get just ONE chance to pop for an apple in boiling hot apple cyder vinegar which would burn your face off. One chance is impossible and thus they all were sacrificed. This is your trick or treat and Halloween for you. Notice how we say to Children of God not to speak to strangers but at Halloween they tell the Kids of Satan to knock on anyone’s door and take what they give.

    Wouldn’t the apple disintigrate in the boiling liquid?

  •  
    You’re not supposed to win my friend and save your life, you’re to be sacrificed so no not straight away will the apple wither away it has to boil down first. They’re not going to wait all day for you to attempt to save your life and bob for an apple. The game is rigged and your head is coming off.

    Those druids were evil. That same situation seems to be presenting itself through cancer and the medical answer with chemo etc.

    • Yes you are absolutely correct, you’re damned if you do and the same if you don’t but regardless you’ll be dying soon kind of thing. Chemo can never ever in a million years cure Cancer. Do you know why? Its not even a toxic issue either. Basically to call something a cure you have to produce something which removes the cause not the symptom for a period of time. Therefore unless one has something which restores normal functioning of the Pancreas, Spleen and Kidney function especially the Immunity and Proteolytic enzyme functioning then you cannot be cured of Cancer. Your tumors may disappear but they’ll come back at some point and the next time if chemo was used last time, well you’ll be serious trouble as they’ll be much more resistant this time around. By the way please remember that the Temporal Coadjutor infiltrator supposedly leading the Anglican Church is a Druid named Rowan Williams. Yes the shame Williams who prays in St Peter’s Basilica with the Pope, meets with the Superior General at Borgo Santo Spirito and even lectures at the Jesuit Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
