Ghosts, goblins, mummies, witches and jack-o-lanterns are the norm this time of year. It is on this day that Halloween is observed. Halloween is a pagan holiday and many in the Christian faith don't want to have anything to do with it. They believe it glorifies evil and the ways of the devil.
But, just as in life, we need to take the good with the bad. Our lives are not perfect. Even the best of the best sometimes trip and fall. Do we all do everything that is good in God's sight all the time? Of course not. We are in bondage to sin. We may sin or do something that is wrong but that doesn't mean we will do it forever. We change. We take the good with the bad and hope for better times when we are facing troubling circumstances.
So, if you are against Halloween because you do not agree with what it promotes, endure it for one day and look to the future. Tomorrow will be a different day. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
