This weekend if you see someone dressed as a red devil with a pitch-fork, why not offer them a reality check. Ask them if they know who in the Bible is seen as having a winnowing fork in his hand, ready to bring hellfire (Matthew 3:12). Ask them if they know who in the Bible is seen to be dressed in red because he is covered with the blood of his enemies (Isaiah 63). In both cases the answer is, of course, Jesus Christ.
How did our culture get that picture completely backwards? Indeed, how is it that on the eve of All Saints Day, when Christian martyrs would be lovingly remembered, we now celebrate with witches and monsters? Something has gotten seriously confused here. We need to gently remind people that the only one to fear is God, who, though He has all the patience in the world for the lost and confused, does not like liars or rebels. Jesus’ most common command in the New Testament was “Fear not,” but that was only said to His followers. “The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, that one may turn away from the snares of death.” (Proverbs 14:27)
