    No wonder the world thinks Christians are kooks.

    My children attended a harvest party at another church and were also given some Chick tracts and read them before I could. One was entitled "Boo!" and included people celebrating Halloween with satanic sacrifices. It also made the claim that Halloween was a celebration of Satan's birthday. At the end of the tract it said you could be "wise" and make a decision for Christ, or be a "dummy" and wind up in hell. That's just great--calling children names for not accepting Christ! What kind of a nut would even publish something like that?

    I've seen some great Halloween tracts in the past, but I DID NOT APPRECIATE this particular one, even though it came from friends in a sister church. We need to be very careful not to turn people AWAY from Christ with idiotic trash like this.

    I'm sick and tired of "Christians" like this.. !!!! I swear if I didn't know Jesus, it would be hard to get me to become a Christian based on the way these so called Christians act!... I remember one yr I was indoctrinated by a church in Pinch WV that anyone that dresses up their children are evil and serving satan.. the next yr, I escaped that cult, and when my son dressed up he asked me if we were serving satan... I could ring that "preachers' neck for indoctrinating my kids.. but then i have to blame myself for falling for that myself.

    Jack Chick tracts are good for nothing but starting fires.

    Interesting point - but let's expand on that just a bit.

    Dressing up as cowboys, Indians, Princess, ect, might be one thing.

    But, do you see any problem dressing up as a witch, the Devil, ect?

    That and Sword of the Lord. Sword of the Lord is better because you have more paper to burn.
