The following video is produced by woke AWAKEN LA church (affiliated with the Foursquare Gospel sect) in North Hollywood, California. It has a much higher production value than C.H. Fisher’s video, Halloween Helliween, so Fisher might want to take note of how to preach nonsense with pzazz. Bullshit goes down easier with a cool sound tract and flashy graphics.
The video narrator gives ten reasons why people should never celebrate Halloween:
- Halloween is the Devil’s holiday.
- There are curses that are unleashed when people carve pumpkins. If you put the carved pumpkin on your porch, it brings demons into your house on Halloween.
- Christians bring a four to five generation curse on their families when they celebrate Halloween.
- Harvest parties are not a suitable substitution for Halloween. Substituting harvest parties for Halloween brings curses upon children and churches.
- Wearing costumes changes identities. When Christians put on costumes of something they are not, they open themselves up to demonic attack.
- Halloween is the opposite of Resurrection Sunday. It is the celebration of death.
- November 1 is not about the saints. All Saints’ Day is a demonic holiday.
- Celebrating Halloween is a betrayal to God.
- Curses become active when Halloween begins.
- Halloween is a trap set up by the Devil.
Here’s the money quote:
The whole picture of Halloween is to bow down to the Devil. The biggest witchcraft is done on Halloween.
Halloween is an abomination to God.
Halloween is a poison to believers and non-believers alike. Many people get killed,shot, and go missing on Halloween. Don’t play with fire. If you play with fire, you’ll burn your whole house down. The Devil has a mastermind strategy on how to deceive people. Remember, he is the father of lies. The Devil kills, steals, and destroys through these type of holidays and culturally encouraged traditions. It’s a trap set up. The enemy’s purpose is to keep you away from the cross. The lies and deceptions may appear harmless, good, or cool, [but] these deceptions are the Devil’s way to send you to a place called Hell.
Sadly, Awaken LA’s website features pictures of teenagers and young adults. (Facebook page) I can’t help but think, so many bright, hopeful lives ruined at such a young age. The church is pastored by Alexander Prokopchik.
