So why would internet atheists be mad at me or Answers in Genesis for Halloween? Well, nearly every year, I promote our witnessing tools—tracts, booklets, etc.—and encourage families to hand them out (with a treat of course!) to their neighbors and share the good news of Christ on the only day when your neighbors will come knocking, sometimes by the hundreds. And every year, this gets atheists all upset!
Some atheists will blog about it; others will comment on Facebook or Twitter. They all accuse us of ruining a childhood tradition and laugh that kids won’t like getting a tract when they expect candy! Well, I never encourage people to only hand out tracts or booklets, and anyway, we find that most kids are excited to be handed a million-dollar bill or fun illusion with their candy.
So despite the atheists’ objections, I am going to promote Halloween resources for you and your family yet again—because the message of Jesus’ death on the cross and victory over the grave is the best message (and the best “treat”) any child or adult can receive! And this will give these atheists some purpose and meaning in life in attacking us. Actually, if it wasn’t a spiritual issue, why would they bother anyway?
To help prepare you to share Christ this Halloween, consider:
We hope you find these resources helpful as you engage with your neighbors for the glory of God!
