Okay we dont believe we should go trick or treat its satanic but will you give some candy to a kid who asks from you?
no because that means you support people who trick or treat
like christ4life said, u dont have to be doing the wrong thing for it to be a sin, as long as u are encouraging it.
i don't think its wrong giving kids candy we just don't go but we can just make them happy by a piece of candy!
i don't think its wrong if just giving them candy but u no what i only gave little kids!!!
no it is wrong, because it means that you support his cause... here look at it this way...
i support Red Cross ok... im gonna give them blood... its somewhere along those lines... if i didnt support Red Cross, people would call me crazy if i gave them blood...
but we don't care about US celebrating holloween we just have fun giving little kids candy!!!
how is supporting celtics fun?
"When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. These shall not be found among you anymore who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a sportiest, or one who calls up the dead" (Deuteronomy 18:9-11).
It is clearly written in Deuteronomy, that we should not follow the abominations of this nation. The supporting of Halloween (even by giving little children candy) encourages the evils of this harmful day. I
suggest turning your front lights off so children knock at your door.
okay...thanks for that hint!
Maybe we can do the sign of the cross on the candy we give them and say we give you this in the name of Jesus Christ!
H.G. Bishop Suriel has written a great article on this issue which can be read
thats really cool...thanks!
giving the little kids candy is not a sin...or u could just say that u ran out of candy
i personally hate halloween.it gives me the creeps
i personally hate halloween. i think its the worst day of the year despite the fact that its my birthday. what we do is we turn the lights off outside of our house and people understand that we don't want to take part in this "holiday" and only a few people ring the doorbell all night.
