that's crazy. Christians embrace halloween but this communist expells it?Talk about confusing.(I know Chavez it's completly a 'communist' but the pastors in the area says he is...)
Yeah, I agree; confusing. The fact that he can see that "it's not our way", and is bold enough to reject it, yet most christians brush past it's history, and what it's all about, accepting it just as another fun day.This, for me, was the second year that I didn't celebrate halloween. I always just looked at it like another excuse to party. I'm sorry, Father. I hope I never mislead anyone.Grace and Peace...
