The really scary part of this is that it's not some random nobody. It was published as a guest blog in Charisma, a serious Christian news site with a large following. Here's what Daniels says about Halloween:
The Danger of Celebrating HalloweenWow. Can you imagine what the author's life must be like? Demons and witches lurk behind every bush and in every dark corner. Lucifer and God watch her when she undresses or does anything intimate. The candy counter at the grocery store has been cursed by witches. Evil spirits try to subvert her every action. Her friends are all going to Hell. And the only path she can take to avoid all of these dangers is to follow the confusing jumble of morals and advice from a book written over two thousand years ago – a time when these superstitions might have been understandable.
The root word of Halloween is "hallow," which means "holy, consecrated and set apart for service." If this holiday is hallowed, whose service is it set apart for? The answer to that question is very easy—Lucifer's!
... [Halloween] is dedicated to darkness and is an accursed season. During Halloween, time-released curses are always loosed. ... During this period demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities. ... For example, most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.
I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference. ...
Mother earth is highly celebrated during the fall demonic harvest. Witches praise mother earth by bringing her fruits, nuts and herbs. Demons are loosed during these acts of worship. When nice church folk lay out their pumpkins on the church lawn, fill their baskets with nuts and herbs, and fire up their bonfires, the demons get busy. ...
Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil that masquerades behind the fictitious characters of Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist. ...
The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:
Another abomination that goes on behind the scenes of Halloween is necromancy, or communication with the dead. ...
- Sex with demons
- Orgies between animals and humans
- Animal and human sacrifices
- Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
- Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
- Revel nights
- Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
- Release of "time-released" curses against the innocent and the ignorant.
There is no doubt in my heart that God is not calling us to replace fall festivals and Halloween activities; rather, He wants us to utterly destroy the deeds of this season. If you or your family members have opened the door to any curses that are released during the demonic fall festivals, renounce them and repent.
Are we making progress yet?
