VIDEO: CQ Kids – Are Ghosts Real?

If we define a ghost as a dead person who has come back to life to communicate with the living, the answer is no.  There are, however, evil spirits, or fallen angels, who work with Satan trying to encourage mankind to do evil things.  For more on this subject, watch this short video designed for children.

Should We Be Worried About Witchcraft?

So, if you are a little kid it’s time for the excitement of “trick or treat” – costumes and candy. If you are older it’s time for parties, horror movies that look and feel so real they make your skin crawl, the undead, dark spells and generally unfettered behavior. Yup, we are talking about Halloween and all of the trimmings that come with it. Here is the thing – no matter what age you are, when Halloween comes it is also time for a strong and convincing dose of witchcraft. That’s right – no matter what age you are, witchcraft is not only entirely mainstream, it is enticingly mainstream and very much within reach. So, is this something to be worried about? Are we dealing with some big, dark and deceiving practice or is it all just harmless home-brewed storytelling?

How Bad Can White Witchcraft Be?

In just a few days the costumes will come out, the candy will be distributed, the parties will roar on! The ghosts, the goblins, the skeletons – the superheroes, the princesses, the ballerinas – all will engage in a happy celebration of Halloween – ironically the night where pagan tradition says the veil between the spirit world and our world is thinnest and therefore can be crossed by evil spirits…great! Halloween is based on paganism – Wicca - white witchcraft - is an outgrowth of paganism. So, is Wicca something that we should be afraid of?

Why Do We Celebrate Death and Witchcraft?

The time has come. The time when candy becomes a dietary staple, kids stay up and are out late running throughout neighborhoods collecting candy, disguised as anything from Ninja Turtles, to Frankenstein to princesses to monsters to political figures, ghosts and aliens. If you are a kid, it is pure fun. But the older you get, the darker the source of the fun. At some point for many, this fun now takes on stories of death, darkness and devilry. Obviously, we are talking about Halloween. What is it about this holiday that brings out so much that seems so sinister? Stay with us – you may be surprised!

How Dangerous are Demons?

We live in a world of battles and contradictions. We have political battles, philosophical battles and moral battles. We have battles between nations, peoples and religions. We battle disease, cold and hunger. We battle ourselves. And we battle against evil. We battle against the dark, treacherous and sin-filled paths of evil. And if that isn’t enough, that battle also takes place with powers that we can only imagine, both for good and evil. We will look at the powers of darkness – the powers of evil as expressed through the demons who inhabit our atmosphere.
