[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_wp_text title=”On Halloween” text=”Many Christians have concerns about Halloween — about its origins with pagan and occult practices, about the scary movies that always seem to be released around October, and about the general atmosphere of fear and terror associated with the event — and in many cases those fears are entirely justified. Like anything, Halloween is a complex issue with numerous aspects to it that each require adjudication and discernment. Some Christians want to abolish the event altogether, while others consider it alright for their children to go trick-or-treating so long as they don’t wear a scary costume. Addressing common questions about this scary holiday may alleviate some of the concerns surrounding this controversial cultural issue.”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
