Halloween is Occult, It Should Be Avoided.

“Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.”
 – Psalm 141:4 –


No Christian should be involved in Halloween in any way.  Halloween is not innocent, it is demonic.  Halloween is a celebration of the occult.

A lot of people try and dress up Halloween in Christianity.  That is compromising with evil.  There is no such thing as Christian occultism, just like there is no such thing as Christian heroin.

Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan said: “I am glad that Christian parents let their children worship the devil at least one night out of the year.  Welcome to Halloween.”

Don’t fall into this trap.  Just stay away from evil as much as you can.  Do things that would please Jesus, not the things that please Satan.





Pastor’s Notes – How Did This Happen?


“…the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment…”
– Isaiah 59:15 –


I’ve often wondered how the German people could have let the Nazis (National Socialist Party) rise to power in all of their hate and godlessness.  If we consult the word of God we will always find the answer.  The answer is that there was no one that stood up for God’s truth.  Take a look around, we are seeing right before our eyes how it happened; how evil rises.

Isaiah 59:13-16 KJV: “In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor:”

Those that are not buying into the current evil are preyed upon by the evil doers.  It takes great courage to stand up to these evil doers, but if we don’t, we’ve seen through history what can and does happen to the just. 

We MUST stand (2 Corinthians 1:24 KJV “…for by faith ye stand,”) with the Lord against evil of all kinds, including Socialism, which is built on atheism.  It displeases God when no one calls out or judges evil, and it displeases Him when no one and stands for God’s truth. 


Pastor’s Notes – Get Away From Me!

“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.”
– 2 Timothy 4:2 –

We pray everyday that God will build his church here at River Westlake Baptist Church.  We know that God works through people, and God has inspired us to print cards with info on this new church on one side and Bible verses about salvation on the other side.

We’ve been putting these cards out in the Rocky River and Westlake areas en masse, and, praise God, there has been some response, with people contacting us for more information on the start date for services.  Maybe you are reading this right now because you got a card on your door.

However, while putting these cards on the doorsteps, we sometimes encounter people wearing masks, by themselves, outdoors.  We attempt to hand them a card and try to talk to them about the church and what God’s plan for salvation is.  In return for our concern about their eternity, we are very often greeted with “GET AWAY FROM ME!” or “GET BACK!” Or “STOP TALKING TO ME!” or “#%*@!%#&$@^*&$!# (unleashing a barrage of hate and cursing)!”

The mask has given people who already have anger against God (the God they say that they don’t believe in) more boldness and aggressiveness, to be as mean and ugly to caring strangers as possible.  The Bible warns us that this would be the case in the end times.

2 Timothy 4:1-5 (KJV) tells us very clearly that these times of anger and hatred of the Word of God would come…

“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”

We know this anger is only going to get worse, but God implores us to soldier on, be long-suffering, and continue to spread His word.  It is a privilege to do so.  Praise God!.
