I need help answering this question: what is so evil about going out and getting candy?

it isn't about going out and getting candy. there is nothing wrong with that which is one of the reasons that the church will give out candy as part of a replacement for the community as an outreach. the problem is more in the area of princible...do you want to promote the celibrationand glorification of death and decay on a satainic high sabath or would you rather use that time to actively combat that and get people saved at that time. I had actuall been thinking of giving out candy with tracks and I am going to be praying that some people get saved that day.

I have given out tracts with an invitation to church and church events before and will do so again. Many of them do simply get thrown away but there is always a few that do accept the invitation and show up at church.

Brothers and Sisters,

I'll just say that I firmly believe that GOD owns every second - 24/7/365. Every new day is a day that the LORD has made - "Let us be glad and rejoice in it." We can and should have multiple celebrations and thanksgivings every day. The devil doesn't own one second, nor has he made one second. As Christians, our celebrations and thanksgivings are obviously different than the world's.

This is a topic of debate for many Christians, and it should be. I'll just say that our local assemblies can take advantage of many situations and use them for the GLORY OF GOD. We have many more reasons to celebrate and give thanks than the world does, and our celebrations can be wholesome and uplifting - not just for ourselves, but also for the lost. I didn't mention these things to argue with anyone, rather to point out that Christians have more reasons for joy than anyone else. I don't think that Christians should allot a single second for the devil - give the devil NOTHING. In one manner of speaking and thought, we can take the devil's time away from him and use it for something more wholesome that will bring GLORY TO GOD. SO, when is Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving? - EVERY DAY! The same can be true for anything that the world or the devil thinks they own. They own NOTHING! THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE - ALMIGHTY GOD - OWNS EVERYTHING! Further, HE has POWER that no force can stand against, and GOD will do as HE Pleases in Heaven and on Earth. The time will come soon when HE will CRUSH evil and reserve it for the eternal fires of HELL. In the meantime, Christians can and should serve GOD every day - AND HE has given us the means to do just that - even if we die in the attempt.

Love In Christ,
Tom
