City Preacher Robert Burale has expressed displeasure in believers who have been busy celebrating Halloween, saying that the whole event is very demonic.
In a Facebook post, Burale said;
“How some believers still celebrate Halloween baffles me…. Halloween is very demonic… good day.”
The statement sparked mixed reactions among his followers, with a section saying he should not judge others by how they decide to live their life.
Others sided with him, stating that Christians should never celebrate Halloween due to its origin and the meaning behind its celebrations.
Around the world, Halloween or All Saints’ Eve, is a celebration observed on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day.
It is used to mark the end of summer and beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death.
In ancient times, on the night of October 31, the world used to celebrate a special event called Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.
Nowadays people celebrate Halloween by re-creating other peoples Images or by donning some scary costumes, with paintings or makeup.
