Light & Darkness :: Halloween Message

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 10/27/2019 by Pastor Steve Shields

Off and on, I have taken this time of year, Halloween, to talk to you about spiritism, the occult, and such things Not because I think Halloween is bad.  But because I think the occult is real – and bad.

I basically use this holiday as an excuse to address these issues.

Giving some thought to the difference between Christian faith and paganism you might realize that a big part is the difference between light and darkness. Christian faith is light. Paganism, spiritism, the occult, witchcraft – not so much.

In fact, historically, these things are referred to, by critics and practitioners alike, as the dark arts.

Dark arts. Darkness. Spiritual darkness.

This is the danger of paganism, spiritism, the occult.

And this podcast addresses these very things.

What’s the Problem with Spiritism (& all that other stuff)?

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 10/28/2018 by Pastor Steve Shields

Through the years, around Halloween, some pastors present biblical views of the occult, spiritism, witchcraft, and communication with the dead. It’s a topic that needs to be addressed from a rational, biblical perspective — regularly.

This message looks beneath the surface and reveals one of the deep motives some have for looking toward the dark arts.

As you listen to this podcast, you may discover that this deeper problem is more common than you might of thought.

And you may find freedom from it in your own life.
