October 31

Zombies

American participation in and interest in religion is in steady decline (especially “organized” religion), but “spirituality” is big. The annual observance of Halloween has never been bigger. A friend of mine who operates an online costume rental/purchase service does 80% of his business in the month of October.

The dark side of spirituality also has never been bigger. TV shows and books about vampires and other creatures are always popular. Voodoo never went away, and ever since 1968’s movie Night of the Living Dead, people have been fascinated with zombies.

Zombieis an African word that came to America through Haiti and refers to legends of corpses brought back to life through occult means. Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video notwithstanding, the dead will stay dead and return to the dust of which they are made.

But the dead will live again, and whether or not they come back to life to an eternity of misery or ecstasy will depend on their relationship with Jesus Christ. “Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2).

What will you experience when you awake?


Put an end to end-time fear!

The end times and judgment day can seem scary and uncertain. But as a Christian, you have absolutely nothing to fear!

In his book, The End Times Belong to Jesus: God’s Grace Takes Away the Fear, Pastor Daron Lindemann examines the Scriptures and explains why you can have absolute confidence about the future. We’d like to send you a copy of The End Times Belong to Jesusto thank you for your gift.
