A Biblical and Historical Look at Halloween
Halloween has its obvious downsides, but we can use this day to share the hope of Christ with others by welcoming trick-or-treaters with some candy (or maybe a healthier snack!) and a gospel booklet. Our A Biblical and Historical Look at Halloween booklets are a great way to introduce older trick-or-treaters or their parents to the history of this day, fascinating facts about Halloween, and, most importantly, the gospel message. These tracts are available from our store in different-sized packs at a discounted price.
Reverse Trick or Treating
Or try “reverse-trick-or-treating” when you bring a basket of goodies to bless your neighbors. Include a gospel booklet with your home-baked or store-bought treats. This is a great way to encourage your kids to give and bless others as well as share the gospel as a family.
Halloween, Paganism, and the Bible DVD
Have a family discussion about this day with Bodie Hodge’s DVD Halloween, Paganism, and the Bible. Learn why it’s celebrated and how we can see the gospel even through the death and the macabre that are celebrated. This one-hour talk traces Halloween’s roots back to before Christ and, potentially, all the way back to the dispersion at the Tower of Babel! This eye-opening DVD is sure to spark conversations about how Christians should respond to Halloween. You can order Halloween, Paganism, and the Bible as a DVD or download from our online store.
The Halloween Kit
Or get everything you need to be ready for this day with our “Halloween Learn and Share Kit.” This kit includes “A Biblical and Historical Look at Halloween” tracts, a copy of Halloween, Paganism, and the Bible, and two different kinds of dollar-bill sized tracts.
These dollar tracts, called “Dino-bucks,” feature a roaring T-rex and the gospel message that, though our Creator is also our judge, Jesus took our place and offers the free gift of salvation to all who will believe. Our Noah’s Ark tracts feature an image of the Ark Encounter, our life-size Noah’s Ark, along with the message that just as God judged man’s sin at the time of the Flood he will judge us someday too, but we can go through the “Door,” Jesus Christ, and be saved. These tracts are eye-catching and engaging—they make a great giveaway.
You can order the Halloween kit from our online store.
I encourage you to have family discussions about how to use this day to shine the light of Christ to your friends, family, and neighbors.
