Halloween, from a degree of difficulty perspective, is the most challenging of all our holidays. A few days out of each October we are asked to give mental energy to this tradition.
This makes Halloween no different from any other thing in our lives. It is just another discipleship opportunity–a privilege the LORD gives us to bring a right response to our annual interruption and He does not leave us alone during this process.
The Spirit of God gives us clarity to all things pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). His authoritative and sufficient Word comes alongside us to guide our thoughts (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We have each other to bounce off our ideas (Proverbs 11:14).
The triangulation of God, Scripture, and community provide us with unassailable wisdom to formulate a biblical response to Halloween. This is great news because like every other secondary issue, our collective perspectives and approaches are all over the map.
What shall I do?
