You indoctrinate your child to think that HALLOWEEN is to worship the devil.
Is this a sign of desperation, or just trying to indoctrinate every last person?
Jehovah Witnesses catch a lot of crap but what I have witnessed from them is Religious Discipline.
No Birthdays, in honor of John the Baptist
No Money allowed to be circulated in Sanctuary as offerings. Private discreet donation box outside sanctuary.
No Preacher or Pastor. The Congregation takes turns sharing stories, concepts and teaching techniques.
No Windows or shuttered windows on most. This always puzzled me. Maybe to keep peoples eyes from wandering outside. I don't know.
I think Passover is the only one that is ok in this strict discipline or fasting.
They also break down the trinity.
They see Jesus as one of many sons. I branch away from them a bit on this because I feel Jesus may be the only "hybrid" or "begotten" son. Thats another thread tho.
Just wanted to show everyone not all churches are like what you think.

Halloween is a Christian holiday, (it came from the Celts, the festival of Samhain, people dressed in costumes around a bonfire to ward off spirits) why would they not celebrate it at a church? Add to it the fact that there are a gazillion psychos out there and people legitimately worry for their childrens safety, why not go celebrate at church?
IMO it's too bad, because I have always loved halloween, and feel that the churches, malls, psychos, delinquents, freaks and pervs etc are ruining what used to be a great and fun day and night for kids.
