Most Americans do not believe in demonic spirits enough to think of Halloween as a celebration of them. Rather, Halloween is a massive escape from reality.
Halloween has become the second-most popular holiday on the calendar in recent years—even to the point that Christian churches sponser parties on it. Richard Ritenbaugh shows, however, that this night of ghouls not only lacks biblical foundation, but. . .
True Christians do not celebrate Halloween. It is pagan in origin and practice and will destroy one's relationship with God. Light and darkness cannot mix.
Evil is not spoken of much these days, except perhaps in movie titles and video games. Yet it exists, and Christians should have nothing to do with it.
Martin Collins, focusing on the six-pointed star, the shield of David or the Magen David, appearing on the Israeli flag, points out that this symbol does not have an inherently Jewish meaning, but was actually introduced into the Jewish community in Prague. . .
May Day has become a cardinal day for worshipping demons and the greenery of the earth. It is one of Satan's eight pagan holidays that displace God's Holy Days.

Martin Collins argues that both Israel and Judah of Hosea's time adopted pagan culture as they aligned themselves with Gentile peoples. Physical Israel is doing the same thing that Ancient Israel did, and will consequently receive the same kind of curse an. . .
