Wandering around the writing fields this time of year always yields words from those who warn us against involving ourselves with holidays such as the most recent Halloween.
For those of you in this camp concerned for my well-being as a believer in Christ, thank you. For the record, I stand firmly behind you in your decision to not celebrate a holiday.
On the same record though, I stand firmly with those who choose to practice the liberty they have in Christ to celebrate a gospel transformed holiday.
Either way, for me this is a non-issue. My choice to indulge personally is made solely on the thought of believing that a holiday that brings forth multitudes of children is a holiday that Jesus would have seen as a profitable place to share some good news, “Let the little children come unto me.”
Since I believe that Jesus would have wanted to be near the celebrative children, then I have to consider whether His body ought also.
