JesusWeen: A Godly Alternative to Halloween

jesus ween

On Halloween, the streets are filled with vampires, monsters, ghosts, ghouls, and werewolves, but there is one thing noticeably absent. God. Thankfully, Non-profit organization JesusWeen is trying to put God back into the devil’s holiday.

JesusWeen asks participants to:

  • Knock on doors to give a tract, CD, DVD, or Bible
  • When asked for treats give the gift of salvation

The people at JesusWeen can also save you some time picking out a costume. JesusWeen posted on its Facebook page:

“DRESS CODE: On October 31st, every Christian is expected to wear a white top to symbolize Righteousness and the love of God to all mankind. The money normally used to buy costumes can be given to ministries that print christian books to help the unsaved or give such funds to JesusWeen or food bank to help the poor.”

The organization says that they are “endorsed by God,” and that their mission is to “re-program the world.”

Pastor Paul, who started JesusWeen in 2002, told Gawker:

“I think (Halloween) is an activity that doesn’t have anything to do with Christians. And I think many Christian families are not knowledgeable to what it’s all about. Halloween is not consistent with the Christian faith. Many people say they feel uncomfortable on that day. We think people should choose an alternative activity.”

Pastor Paul is right. Halloween has very little to do with Christianity. Halloween started as an ancient Celtic, pre-Christian new years celebration.

History.com reports:

“It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts.”

Here’s a video about the history of Halloween.

Would you be mad if you received a bible instead of candy on Halloween, I mean, JesusWeen?

    What if I hand them a picture with a authentic autograph of Satan? If it is true that Satan was the most beautiful angel in heaven, how come Christians always depict him looking like the Greek god Pan? My grandson is going as a taco, is that Biblical?

    You're right! God is absent from all the other make believe things Halloween brings! As an atheist, I fully support this holiday. God should be treated equally among Batman, werewolves, zombies, and monsters!

    perhaps candy & (?) sharing the LOVE of Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ (with or w/o printed materials as the only way 2 interpret in properly is by the HOLY Ghost leadin' & we all need that, Truth b told!), God made flesh, but He is the greatest of gifts-of this I m sure!
