Zombies, Frankenstein monster, ghouls, vampires etc. have the common theme of "life beyond the grave" -- an afterlife having nothing to do with a personal God. What is the promise of Jesus Christ anyway? Those washed in His blood, filled with His spirit, will be resurrected in incorruptible flesh, and will live with Him forever. The resurrection of the dead and the Rapture of the faithful are promises Jesus Christ says He will keep. Halloween and its scary fun motifs cast doubt on this promise. Can the dead indeed be raised? This paranormally obsessed culture which hypes Halloween and the Horror Genre in entertainment seems to say that the dead will only be raised as monsters, decaying ghouls, undead vampires, or as the result of some occult intervention.
I have uncovered documents — most of which are not soiled napkins and are actually printed on real paper — that certifiably demonstrate that the so called “spooky holiday,” Halloween, is in actuality a conspiracy devised by a very powerful capitalist conglomerate.
The origins of Halloween are, in fact, very Christian and rather American. Halloween falls on October 31 because of a pope, and its observances are the result of medieval Catholic piety.
Mark 14:41 . And he cometh the third time and saith to them: Sleep ye now and take your rest. It is enough. The hour is come: behold the Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners. Mark 15:25 . And it was the third hour: and they crucified him. Mark 15:33 . And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole earth until the ninth hour. Mark 15:34 . And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying: Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabacthani? Which is, being interpreted: My God, My God, Why hast thou forsaken me?
