Halloween NOWD v2

Halloween - Night of the Walking Dead - ICM Course
Category: Theology & Ministry 
VID - Video Course

This free lesson comes from ICM's Hot Topic night Live Web Class broadcast.

A Christian Bible Network viewer recently said, "I think Halloween is as harmful as you make it," which begs the question, "Does God share this view?"

Not if you consider what God says in the book of James.

"Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”- James 4:4

Many years ago, the Catholic Church whitewashed Halloween in an attempt to erase a pagan holiday. They failed. Since then, Christians have misunderstood the church's position as an endorsement of Halloween.

In this special one-hour Hot Topic presentation, we will examine the historical roots of Halloween and the origins of today's modern symbols and practices. Additionally, we will take a close look at what the Bible says about Halloween and whether or not it really is a holiday believers in Christ should celebrate.

Some of the topics we will discuss include:

  • The Historical Origin of Halloween
  • The Church's Role in Halloween's Acceptance
  • The Origin of Halloween's Customs Including:
    • The Zombie
    • Trick-or-Treating
    • The Jack-O-Lantern
    • Bats
    • Dressing in Costumes
    • Telling Ghost Stories
    • Mischief & Playing Tricks
    • Black Cats
    • Bonfires
    • Parades...and More
  • Understanding God's View of Halloween

Halloween - Night of the Walking Dead will be a fun hour of discovering history and understanding the Bible's view on pagan holidays! Be prepared to take notes for surely you will want to share these discoveries with others.
