1Thess5Today’s Post is a study of 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 written by John F. Walvoord (May 1, 1910 – December 20, 2002), long-time president of Dallas Theological Seminary. He was one of the most prominent evangelical scholars of his generation and is considered perhaps the world’s foremost interpreter of biblical prophecy.

Dr. Walvoord is known worldwide for his evangelical scholarship in Christology, pneumatology (the doctrine of the Holy Spirit), and eschatology (prophecy and the end times). A committed and profound dispensationalist, the Bible was always at the heart of Dr. Walvoord’s life. He sums up its importance:

“The comprehensive sweep of the Bible, as it looks at history from God’s point of view and then presents the glorious future that awaits the child of God, gives the Christian a life of meaningful activity. It provides as system of values that transcends the materialism of our day, and it gives us a glorious hope of a world to come where there is much happiness.”

As children, Author and I participated in Halloween’s tradition of dressing in costumes and trick or treating. We never thought there was anything wrong with it, back then. Our sons also grew up joining in the ‘festivities’ of this so-called American holiday.

However, as we came to know God’s written Word and desired to please Him and be faithful to Him, Halloween became one of many activities from which we detached ourselves.

Knowing how God feels about His people observing other spiritual beliefs not rooted in Himself (Exodus 20:4-6) made us see that this ‘holiday’, which originated from the pagan worship of the Druids, was not honoring to God. And, to be very honest, it was easy for us to give up the ‘fun factor’ of Halloween once we no longer had school-age children living in our house.

Other believers feel complete freedom to observe the holiday, some run and hide from it, many boycott or ignore it, a number celebrate it through more positive Christian alternatives to Halloween.

We would caution you, however, to give plenty of thought to the appropriateness of judging another Christian for observing or not observing Halloween. We do not know why another person participates in the holiday or why they do not. We cannot accurately judge the motivations and intentions of another person’s heart. The issue is not the holiday itself but the situation in which it is observed. In religiously neutral situations, it is probably a matter of indifference.  1 Corinthians 8:1-3, 9, 10. 1 Cor. 10:23-24.

I believe the most appropriate Christian response to Halloween is to study the matter for yourself and follow the convictions of your own heart. Let others do the same without condemnation from you.

SUNDAY POST: Simply The Gospel

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the explanation of who He is and what He accomplished for you. The word gospel literally means – “good news”. It’s good news because it’s an answer to a problem. What’s the problem?     The problem is no one deserves to go to heaven. Man is SINFUL and SEPARATED from God.
