  1. I loved Pastor Schmidt’s opinion of Halloween (that he has no opinion). My family doesn’t participate in Halloween, but we don’t spiritualize our opinion. Too many parents give verse after verse about how evil the holiday is, that it’s the Devil’s day–and they should abstain from the unfruitful works of darkness like Paul said in Ephesians. Many of these same parents have no problem going to the store the next morning to buy the leftover candy for 50% off and ignore Paul’s encouragement to not eat food offered to idols where you could draw an application with Halloween. It is possible for us to just not form opinions on these non-essential issues. We (Americans especially) seem compelled to pick a side and not leave an issue to Christian liberty. Once we do that, we start looking at people as either on our side, against us, or compromising between the two.
