Can Participating in Halloween Open Spiritual Doors?

In the Christian world, we often talk about spiritual doors. We say that the doors God has opened for us, no one can shut. We cling to the idea that the good things God has for us no one can take away, but many of us don’t like the idea that we ourselves can take away those good things by our own actions. We don’t like the idea of the possibility of opening evil spiritual doors in our lives by participating in things that aren’t of God. Many Christians believe that the occult is just foolishness. That the Devil is just a toothless lion, but the Truth is he is a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. Therefore, could participating in darkness, no matter how innocent it may look, cause someone to open a spiritual door for the demonic to enter their lives?

Participating in Halloween Opens Spiritual Doors

What Are Spiritual Doors?

1 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber.
I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.

John 10:1; 9

But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost, for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

1 Corinthians 16:8–9

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20

1. Communication with spirits
2. Agreement with spirits
3. Passageway in from one place to another
4. A transition or an opportunity (either for the person or for the spiritual being – whether that being is good or evil)

Spiritually Opening Doors to Evil

If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is contrary to you, but you must rule over it.

Genesis 4:7

Spiritual doors are opened based on what we participate in. If we participate in the things of God, then the spiritual doors to be with God will be opened. If we participate in the things of evil, then the spiritual doors of evil to be with evil will be opened. Participating in occult practices, such as Halloween, opens spiritual doors to the demonic in your life.

Should Christians Buy Halloween Candy?

Every year candy companies create special packaging, marketing, and products just for Halloween. It’s a spooktacular time. Many people think this is just good business, but what if there is something more to the Halloween candy we’re indulging in every year? What if there is something sinister behind Halloween candy?

Food Sacrificed to Idols

For some reason, we, the Church, overlook the possibility of eating food sacrificed to idols. In fact, we like to pretend like that isn’t for us, but look at what the Scriptures say about it.

Warnings Against Eating Food Sacrificed to Idols

The Church at Pergamum

14 But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immorality.

Revelation 2:14

The Church at Thyatira

20 But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols.

Revelation 2:20

Warning to the Church at Antioch

28 For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements: 29 that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.

Should Christians Carve Pumpkins?

Pumpkins are a beloved fall fruit. Everything is pumpkin spice for the fall season, even air freshener. Another beloved usage of pumpkins this time of year is carving them into Jack O’ Lanterns. Many Christians carve pumpkins this time of year with Scriptures or images of Jesus or just fun kid things like unicorns or puppies. If Christians aren’t carving pumpkins to be scary Jack’ O Lanterns but instead as a fun family night or a way of witnessing to the world, then is it really the same thing? Is it still wrong to carve pumpkins if it isn’t for Halloween?

Should Christians Carve Pumpkins?

The Origin of Jack’ O Lanterns

The legend of Stingy Jack

The Devil heard about Stingy Jack, and one night he went looking for him to see if the stories were true. When Jack saw Satan, he realized that Satan had come to claim his unredeemed soul. So, Jack asked for one final request before Satan took his soul to Hades. His request was to have one last drink of ale at the pub.

Satan, seeing no reason why he shouldn’t, took Jack to the local pub and gave him some drinks. To Satan’s surprise, when the drinks were finished and it came time to pay, Jack asked Satan to pick up the tab. Jack, being the sly cheat he was, talked Satan into turning himself into a silver coin so that they could rip off the pub. Impressed, Satan agreed. Jack then took Satan, who was now a silver coin and put him in his pocket next to a silver crucifix, preventing him from changing back into his original form. Unable to change back, Satan had no choice but to agree to Jack’s demands that he would not bother him for 10 years.

When the 10 years were up, Satan went looking for Jack again. As Satan was preparing to take Jack to Hades, Jack asked for one last apple to eat to satisfy his hunger before his eternal damnation. Once again, Satan obliged and climbed up the apple tree. Jack then quickly carved a crucifix into the trunk of the tree, once again trapping Satan. Unable to go free, Satan once more agreed to Jack’s terms; this time, Satan had to agree that he would never be able to take Jack to Hades.

Eventually, Jack died from alcoholism. As his soul was preparing to enter Heaven through St. Peter’s Gates, God stopped him and would not let him in. His deceit, lies, drunkenness, and wickedness had finally caught up with him, and Jack was unable to enter Heaven. So, Jack, now without an eternal home, went to the Gates of Hades begging to enter, but Satan refused, honoring the promise he had made those many years ago.

Now without a final resting place, Jack was doomed to roam the Earth, becoming a permanent citizen of the Netherworld. Stuck in the darkness of the Spirit Realm, Jack asked Satan how he would be able to see where he was going, as he had no light. So, mockingly, Satan threw him a burning coal to light his way. Going back up to Earth, Jack took a turnip (his favorite food), carved it, and then placed the burning coal inside of it. He began his eternal punishment to endlessly walk the Earth, never finding a resting place. The once Stingy Jack soon became known as “Jack of the Lantern” or “Jack O’ Lantern.”

People In Ireland and Scotland began to make their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by carving scary faces into turnips or potatoes and placing them in windows or near doors to frighten away Stingy Jack and other wandering evil spirits. In England, large beets are used. Immigrants from these countries brought the Jack O’ Lantern tradition with them when they came to the United States. They soon found that pumpkins, a fruit native to America, make the perfect Jack O’ Lanterns.

Carving Pumpkins (Jack O’ Lanterns) Today

The origins of carving pumpkins (Jack O’ Lanterns) is in the occult. In other words, it’s not of God. That which is not of God is evil, and we, Christians, should take no part in it.

14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,

“I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
17 Therefore go out from their midst,
and be separate from them, says the Lord,
and touch no unclean thing;
then I will welcome you,
18 and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty.”

Can Christians Sin?

Many Christians believe and teach that all you have to do is repent, and life will be easier because once you are saved, you are always saved. In fact, some go as far as to believe that Christians no longer can even sin because they have been sealed by the Holy Spirit. Could this be why we Christians are held to a higher standard than the world? We’re supposed to be Christ to the world, so are we perfect as Jesus is perfect? So then are they right, and Christians are saved from sinning because Jesus said, ‘whom the Son sets free is free indeed’? Or is there something more to it?

Can Christians Sin?

Whom The Son Sets Free

Because Jesus said that you will be free if He sets you free, does that mean Christians can’t sin?

36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

John 8:36

Jesus didn’t say that you would no longer struggle with sin; He said that you would be free from the bondage of sin. In other words, you would now have the tools you need in order to overcome whatever sin comes your way. But look at what Jesus tells Peter, His best friend, after finding him asleep instead of praying.

The Flesh

41 Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Matthew 26:41

Both of these Scriptures were spoken by Jesus before His death and resurrection; therefore, none can argue that this verse isn’t for us. Either all of Jesus’ teachings and words were for us, or none of them were. We can’t cherry-pick the Gospel.

In fact, just to prove to you nothing has changed, let’s take a look at the Church after the death and resurrection of Christ.

1 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.

Galatians 6:1

According to Paul, the greatest apostle who ever lived, we are going to stumble and fall. We, the Church (Christians), are going to make mistakes and therefore fall into temptation and sin. But he also gave us hope that our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ will help pick us back up when we fall down, just as Jesus told Peter to do.

31 Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, 32 but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.

Luke 22:31-32

When we sin, we have to get back up and then go on and help others. We bear each other’s burdens because we can’t carry the weight on our own. We help each other through our struggles and trials. Iron sharpens iron.

How Do We Overcome?

We Continue The Good Fight

5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His. 6 We know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 7 For one who has died has been set free from sin.

8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him. 9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death He died He died to sin, once for all, but the life He lives He lives to God. 11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. 13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. 14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

Romans 6:5-14

We fight temptation through the help of the Holy Spirit that has been given to us through the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ that washes us clean. We have to remember we’re a work in progress, but we also have to remember to never settle for less than perfect. We are to strive for perfection so that if we miss it, we may land amongst excellence, for there is no verse to confirm the false comforts of ‘once saved always saved’.

35 Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you over to me. What have you done?” 36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.” 37 Then Pilate said to Him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”

John 18:35-37

How Does Jesus Rule?

Hebrews 4:14-16

Jesus didn’t come for those who could save themselves, otherwise, He wouldn’t have needed to come at all. Jesus came for all of mankind because none of us are good enough.

15 And as he reclined at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and His disciples, for there were many who followed Him. 16 And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that He was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to His disciples, “Why does He eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 17 And when Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Mark 2:16-17

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because He has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

John 3:16-18

None of us can save ourselves. None of us can clean ourselves enough to deserve Christ, that’s why we have to come as we are. None of us deserve the love of Christ, but that’s what grace is.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Ephesians 2:8-9

For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by His blood, much more shall we be saved by Him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by His life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Remember Past Sacrifices

When Jesus went to Bethany, a woman anointed His head with expensive ointment. Because of her sacrifice, He said her story would be told in memory of her. He memorialized her.

Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper,a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table. And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor.” 10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. 12 In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”

What does the Bible say about Hell? Is Hell even in the Bible? Well, the Bible says Hell was created for the Devil and his angels, not for humans.

Hell In The Bible

Why Do Humans Go To Hell?

27 You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

Matthew 5:27-30

12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. 13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. 14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:12-15

Humans will be sentenced to Hell if they do not follow God’s laws. If a person seeks to live a life of sin and unrighteousness, then God is not a part of that person. And if God is not a part of that person, then their names are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. If your name isn’t written in the Lambs Book of Life, you will be sentenced to Hell at the Final Judgment.

Description of Hell

41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, 42 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 13:41-42

11 I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, 12 while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 8:11-12

According to Jesus, Hell is a place of extreme darkness and torment. It’s a place where there is no rest or peace. It’s a place where there is no joy, only pain and suffering. Hell is the exact opposite of Heaven because Hell was created as a punishment away from God and all of His attributes, so there can be nothing good in Hell.

And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of His anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.”

Revelation 14:9-11

According to the book of Revelation, in the last of the last days, the Mark of the Beast will be upon the earth, and if anyone takes that mark, their souls will be damned to Hell. So, in other words, you could’ve lived a righteous life your entire life, but if you give into the Mark of the Beast in the Last Days, then you will be one of the humans that are sentenced to Hell because of your sin.

And because of your sin, regardless of what it is, you will be tormented day and night forever and ever. It will be your eternal death because you did not choose eternal life.
