  • Lightning From the East says:

    The decision to work at a store such as that is ultimately ours to make. But as with all things, we are to incorporate the principles of Romans 14. We can’t allow our own convictions about a holiday to cause division in the body of Christ, nor can we use our freedom to cause others to stumble in their faith. We are to do all things as to the Lord.

    No!

  • Tuberoot says:

    For you people at Biola,

    Romans 14
    13 Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister. 14 I am convinced, being fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for that person it is unclean.

    Christianity is individualistic ONLY because God works that way. If someone who is Christian is so influenced by God, then God is able to make him stand.

    Especially that Halloween store down the road from Biola. It’s big, and has a lot of things in it!

    No! Also they shouldn’t work in a book store since nearly all the books won’t be a Bible.

    1) you’ll get money
    2) you’ll go to hell

    its a double win!

  • GeorgieBlaahh says:

    I personally don’t think so. Just because of what it represents, you know?

    I mean, it stemmed from a lot of horrible things, like digging up your dead ancestors and having dinner with them (seriously). πŸ˜›

    If you’re a strong christian and you think you can avoid any of it touching you, then MAYBE it’s okay, but remember that it doesn’t represent pleasant things. And it may not be the best example to set.

    What would Jesus do?
    Follow in his steps!

    yes and many do in fact

  • Hal Roach says:

    Considering that the word Halloween is derived from "All Hallows Eve", meaning the eve of All Saints day, I don’t see why not.

    The real question is: if somebody sincerely believes that plastic masks, vinyl capes, and handing out little candy bars is "evil", should a Halloween store even OFFER a job to that person?

  • R_A says:

    Is this really your question?

    Should a person who believes in an imaginary being in the sky (heaven) not take a job at a place that makes fun of scary imaginary beings who live underground (hell)?

    What about taking a job at a store that sells magazines with articles you don’t agree with? Or sells tobacco and alcohol?

    Should a christian accept a job that sells items to non-christians?

  • Uncle Guido says:

    All Saints Day, and All Hallows Eve, are based on a Catholic feast day created by the Catholic Church completely independently of any pagan traditions. It is 100% acceptable for Catholic Christians to partake of it, both for it’s spiritual reasons and all of the cool fun stuff that has arisen around it.

    Sadly, this feast day roughly coincides with a pagan holiday and has caused Protestants some confusion. That’s the pagans’ problem – not a Christian problem. Go ahead and work there. If you can’t partake of the Catholic spiritual side of the day, at least enjoy the cool and fun traditions that have arisen around it and consider it a gift to you from the Holy Catholic Church, which is the same thing as a gift from Christ Himself.

    Be blessed πŸ™‚

  • Brittany Wooten says:

    It’s not going to be the worst thing if they do, but at the same time I feel as if it’s one of those things where, why would you put yourself in a situation that causes maybe temptations or questioning of your character.
    As a Christian I take part in handing out candy each year and I dressed up when I was little coming from a Christian family, but never did I/we take part in the scary side, I was M&M’s and princesses and such. In the end it’s really a judgment call but if you can get a job somewhere else- why not do that?
