Hallowe'en Is Pagan!!
HALLOWE'EN, commonly spelled without the apostrophe today,
is utterly PAGAN! All its symbols and customs stem from
ancient heathen mythology. Why should any Christ-centered,
Bible-believing person revel in ghoulish death? What place
have witches, goblins, demons, skeletons, "Jack o'
Lanterns," black cats, and the worship of "Samhain, the Lord
of the Dead," in a Christian society? Millions use
"Halloween," as it is commonly misspelled today, as an
excuse for wild revelry. Little do they know that it is the
ghoulish "New Year" for Satanists!
Garner Ted Armstrong
|"No true Christian with
common sense, and a desire to OBEY God, would ever
be involved in a hideous "celebration" of Satan,
demons, witches, and death."

Sorcery and Harry Potter
During the course of Harry Potter
book series, Halloween is mentioned several times as an
--In Halloween's Day 1981, Lord Voldemort is defeated the
first time by the one-year-old Harry Potter.
--In that same day, Harry's parents James Potter and Lily
Potter die at the hand of Voldemort (Lily's death is what
activates the special protection charm that saved Harry when Voldemort uses the Avada Kedavra on him).
--In 1991, Professor Quirrell makes his first attempt of
stealing the Philosopher's Stone by means of freeing a
mountain troll to distract the other professors and
--Harry and Ron Weasley save Hermione Granger from the
troll; then she does help them in turn so that they are not
punished. This makes them best friends, thus forming what
readers call the Trio.
--In 1992, Harry attends Nearly-Headless Nick's Deathday
Party with his friends Ron and Hermione.
--The first attack from the Slytherin's basilisk is thrown:
Mrs. Norris, Mr. Filch's cat, is found petrified.
--In 1993, Sirius Black tries to get into Gryffindor's tower
so that he can find and kill Peter Pettigrew under the guise
of Scabbers. When the Fat Lady doesn't let him into without
the password, Sirius slashes the portrait with a knife.
--In 1994, the Triwizard Tournament's champions are chosen:
Viktor Krum from Durmstrang, Fleur Delacour from Beauxbatons
and Cedric Diggory from Hogwarts. Due to the manipulations
of Barty Crouch Jr. (disguised with Polyjuice as Alastor
"Mad-Eye" Moody), Harry's name is also chosen, forcing him
to compete in the Tournament.
