Fear-Based Evangelism  -

October 31st, 2011


Hooray! It’s Halloween, a day of fun and fright when kids get to wear costumes, scare one another and get free candy. Too bad the entire celebration glorifies Satan. What? You didn’t know?  

Oh sure, hayrides, bobbing for apples and carving pumpkins look innocent enough, but don’t be fooled. That is not a baby dressed up like a ladybug, it’s a minion of the devil itching to take part in a clandestine black mass. Caramel apple? Nay, my friend, it’s a soul grenade hoping to rot far more than your teeth.

What’s a fundamentalist Christian to do during such dark and evil times? Simple, open a Hell House and graphically display true human horrors like abortion, rape, incest, drug use and suicide to young kids. That will save them! That, or scare them so badly they can’t enjoy their Twizzlers or Snickers bars. The horror!

Pounds of pumpkins were grown for Halloween this season. The number one pumpkin producing state in the country is Illinois.

Wow, we thought Illinois only produced crooked politicians and annually shattered dreams.



The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding.

Albert Camus, French author (1913-1960)

Beggars' Night

noun.     typically the night before Halloween that kids go out and trick-or-treat, hoping increase their candy take. Some municipalities allow two nights of trick-or-treating. The term Beggars' Night is popular in states like Iowa and Ohio.  



The origin of trick-or-treating goes back to an ancient Celtic tradition of putting out food to appease the spirits of the dead who were believed to walk the streets at the end of the Celtic year.


The List

Common Hell House Scenes

Graphic late term abortions performed by apathetic doctors and nurses.
Gays and lesbians being tortured in hell for their homosexuality.
Kids dabbling in the occult and taking part in Satanic rituals.
Re-imaginings of school shootings similar to Columbine.
Kids being pushed to suicide due to premarital sex, drug use and alcohol.

We’ve been to a few Hell Houses in our day, and let us just say those participating in them are far scarier than any witch, wolfman, or vampire we’ve ever encountered in a regular haunted house.

Using fear to forge faith is silly when you consider it is faith that conquers to fear. Hey, who wants a beer?
