What communion hath light with darkness? Not only is that excerpt from 2 Corinthians 6:14 but it is also a question one should ask themselves if they plan on celebrating Halloween. Not many people are aware of the dark, pagan origins of the October 31 celebration. Charisma News has released a fascinating and detailed article that explains it in great detail.
“The origins of Halloween are Celtic in tradition and have to do with observing the end of summer sacrifices to gods in Druidic tradition. In what is now Britain and France, it was the beginning of the Celtic year, and they believed Samhain, the lord of death, sent evil spirits abroad to attack humans, who could escape only by assuming disguises and looking like evil spirits themselves. The waning of the sun and the approach of dark winter made the evil spirits rejoice and play nasty tricks. Believe it or not, most of our Halloween practices can be traced back to these old pagan rites and superstitions.”
The Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14). Celebrating Halloween is having communion with darkness.
