What is really sick is thinking it was cool to see what hell is like knowing that your loving god is the one sending people there even though he created this whole mess. THAT is sick!

What is sick is you don't understood what I wrote. I said it was cool, meaning how it was put together. People at the end were ministering.

My God is loving and merciful, and In the end He said that He will send those, to bad you don't believe what He said. You can smile but you can't change what He said that He would do.

Yikes! Halloween is no more an invitation to the occult than Christmas is to paganism.

Lighten up, wear a costume, hand out some candy, have fun.

I am truly thankful that God has revealed His truth to me and that I no longer allow men, with their carnal interpretations of scripture, dictate who my God is. I will pray that He will open your eyes to His LOVE and infinite MERCY.

Yes, I encourage you to pray, then maybe God can reveal the rest, the rest that you refuse to believe that He has already said. Don't allow me to do anything, but allow God to reveal and open your eyes. I am not trying to dictate who your god is, because your god may not even be the God of the bible. I don't put limits on God, I take Him at His Word and believe what He says. If He says that He will send those to Hell, then that is what He means. Sorry, you can't believe that God would do that, but He said that He would.

Catholics aren't Christians, so I don't know why you put the two terms next to each other. Popery is incompatible with true Christianity.

Ok, my mother, in a stellar example of good judgement and parenting, allowed me to watch "The Exorcist" when I was like 9 or 10 yrs old. Needless to say, I was TERROR stricken. See, I went to Catholic school K-12 and had been endoctrinated to believe in Satan and demons and Hell. So,when I saw that movie, I really freaked, nightmares, insomnia, the whole bit. So, if I was exposed this way to the supposed demonic, then why wasn't I demonically posessed or oppressed? This idea that one can be taken over by demonic forces by watching a scary movie or carving a pumpkin or dressing up and trick-or-treating is absolutely absurd! Oh, btw I just love all the judging and condemning on this thread, it's just so Christ-like, right?

Where did I advocate the watching of horror films by children. Again, someone mentions Catholics; Catholicism is a pagan/Christian hybrid religion independent of Christianity.
