WITH HALLOWEEN COMING UP, IF I DECORATE WITH WITCHES, SCARECROWS AND JACK-O'-LANTERNS, AM I OPENING THE DOOR TO EVIL SPIRITS IN MY HOME? IS BIDDING ON EBAY GAMBLING? Read Transcript


- This is Catherine who asks,"With Halloween coming up,

if I decorate with witches,scarecrows and jack-o'lanterns,

am I opening the door toevil spirits in my home?"

- I really think you are,I think this is a night

that has been taken over by Satan

and all his witches and goblinsand ghouls and all that,

that's a night for Satan, it really is.

I mean, everybody says, "Oh,it's just harmless fun."

I don't think so.

I think that a lot of things you could do,

you have people bobbing for apples,

you can pin the tail on the donkey

and all that kind of stuff, allkinds of little party games.

There's no reason youcan't do that, period.

You don't have to get involvedin all that other stuff,

you really don't, I think churches need

to have wholesome events so their

parishioners can participatein what amounts to

a Christian Halloween,it's All Saints' Eve,

so make it for the Lord,not for the Devil, alright.

- Elizabeth wants to know,"Is bidding on eBay gambling?"

- I don't think it is, Imean going to an auction

isn't gambling, you just say,

"I'm gonna pay this much money,"and somebody else'll say,

"I'm gonna pay thismuch," so it's a contest,

it's not gambling, alright.

- This is a viewer that says, "Dear Pat,

do you know if Judgment Daywill only last for a day?

I know that I have to standbefore God for my rewards

and position in heaven as a Christian,

but I'm looking forwardto the words, 'Well done,

good and faithful servant;thou hast been faithful

over a few things, I willmake thee ruler over many:

enter thou into the joy of they Lord.'"

- Well you've got it right.

As I understand there's gonnabe Great White Throne Judgment

and the Lord said as in John, he said,

"He that hears My word andbelieves in Him who sent me

has everlasting life and shallnot come into the Judgment."

You're not going toenter into the so called

Great White Throne, but there will be

what's called the Bema, whichis the Judgment Seat of Christ

where we'll receive what'sbeen done on our body,

that's what the Bible teaches us.

So there'll be rewards andthere'll be some tears,

some punishment.

So how long that's gonna last, one day,

in God's sight it can happen like that.

It's so quick, God doesn't needeternity to work it all out,

He can do it in a second, alright.
