"God is light, and in him there is no darkness whatsoever," said the apostle John. Why, then, do Christians participate annually in a day that celebrates darkness? The Scripture tells us not to imitate what is evil, so it's time to repent if you or your family have been acting like Halloween is harmless. Instead of glorifying fear, unclean spirits, and arcane arts tonight, politely protest the "holiday" by posting a copy of the anti-Halloween sign that I created.
Sure, you could just turn off your lights and pretend to not be home, but isn't it better to take advantage of the opportunity to be a witness? You may have an audience tonight that you would never have access to otherwise. Be a light on a hill.
"The children of priests form an invisible legion of secrecy and neglect, a Spotlight Team review has found," wrote Michael Rezendes in his August 2017 article titled Father, my Father: Children of Catholic priests live with secrets and sorrow. In any country where the Roman Catholic Church has a notable presence, many thousands of illegitimate children have been sired by priests sworn to celibacy. These legions of kids tell sad tales about the heavy cost of growing up without the emotional and financial support of a father. We have no way of knowing how many others were lost to miscarriage and abortion, or were placed for adoption. It's one of a triad of problems centered around sexual misconduct within the Catholic priesthood—pedophilia and homosexual hookups comprise the other components of this ugly situation.
If the priests of the RCC are supposed to be holier than "normal" Catholics and lead local flocks by example, how can sexual deviance be so prevalent among this group? Why are so many of them not walking the walk? The answer lies primarily in the fact that the RCC has done exactly what the Scripture says not to do, and overwritten God's laws with their own. This is a serious problem that isn't confined to Catholicism, but exists to varying degrees in many monotheistic sects.

8 Keys to Personal Moral Excellence While LIving in Spiritual Egypt
"Y'shua told him, 'Whoever has already bathed needs only to wash his feet, and he will be completely clean'" (John 13:10).
Those who have repented and been baptized into Messiah's name have been made spiritually clean. Yet, as with the disciples' feet that Y'shua washed, the part of ourselves that contacts the earth—our fleshly or material man—must be subjected to the spirit and purified. This life-changing eBook, provided at no cost, aims to help believers live beyond reproach in a morally bankrupt world.
