I’ve been wanting to post some documentaries about Voodoo for some time. Voodoo, Santeria, Obeah, Hoodoo, Rootworking, Mojo, etc., outside of some ancillary differences, at their core, they’re the same. It’s just a question of the people group and the preferred mask of choice. Why would I want to do a post on Voodoo? Because it is prevalent. Prevalent and followed by poverty, death, and destruction. Voodoo very literally deceives people, then drags them to Hell.
Continuing with our History of Halloween Series, we are discussing broomsticks today. This post is brought to you by PagansPath.com. I want you to hear from the mouth of a pagan herself what the history and purpose of the broom is in witchcraft and how that plays into the pagan feast of Samhain (Halloween). If you missed our first post on the history of the jack o’ lantern, you may view it here.
This is the commencement of a little series I’m doing entitled The History of Halloween. Many, even in the Church, are divided on the topic of Halloween. They say things like, “I’m not a witch, I don’t worship Satan, so what’s the problem?” “I don’t want my kids to feel bad or left out.” “What’s so wrong with dressing up as Disney characters and giving out candy?” Trojan horses my friends, Trojan horses. This series will uncover the various aspects of Halloween and why a Christian cannot and should not align themselves with this high, holy Day of Satan for any reason. We commence this season with breaking down the history of jack o’lanterns. To see this original post, please visit History.com.
Well, it’s almost that time again! Time for witches and wizards; spiders and webs; goblins, ghouls, ghosts, oh my! Halloween decor almost seems like it’s everywhere present. But should Christians even celebrate Halloween? Let’s start with the history to build our case.
