Worldwide , for thousands of years , Halloween has been the pagan celebration of death . There is no true Christian basis for the occult masquerade of " All Hallows Even . " Police departments are all too familiar with crime's increase around October 31 . Orange and black , ( often the colors worn by men and women for the past month or more ) , symbolize witchcraft's love for the subterranean abode of their god ; death , whom they worship and fear .
The Bible says the wages of sin is death . The devil is mankind's enemy and desires to take people to a fiery orange and black hell with him . It is Jesus , not the devil who has the keys of hell and death . The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom , not the fear of the devil . Jesus said that if you trust him to forgive you of your sins and believe that by his sacrificial death on the cross he tasted death for every man you will not accompany the devil , the dragon , the serpent to hell . He tells believers that if they resist the devil , the devil will flee from them . Through obedience unto death Christ destroyed the power of the devil . You and I were born servants of the devil because we inherited Adam's sinful nature . But that can change . You become the servant to whom you obey , whether sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness through unfeigned faith in Christ .
