Satan Loves Halloween

“The coming of Halloween is a good time for Christians to remember
that evil spirits are real and that the Devil will seize every
opportunity to trumpet his own celebrity. Perhaps the best response to
the Devil at Halloween is that offered by Martin Luther, the great
Reformer: ‘The best way to drive out the devil, if he will not yield to
texts of Scripture, is to jeer and flout him for he cannot bear scorn.’ On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther began the Reformation with a
declaration that the church must be recalled to the authority of God’s
Word and the purity of biblical doctrine. With this in mind, the best
Christian response to Halloween might be to scorn the Devil and then
pray for the Reformation of Christ’s church on earth. Let’s put the dark
side on the defensive.” – Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, lamenting that Halloween is a pagan ritual that hasn’t become Christianized like Christmas has.
