Could Halloween truely be sinister and potentially dangerous spiritually? Ex Spiritualist Laura Maxwell of Scotland and Ex Traditional Satanist Steve Burns of Canada discuss the evils of it, giving examples from their former lifestyles.
This radio interview was broadcast in October 2011. On the show Set The Captives Free, hosted by Lynn an EX Medium, Texas, USA.
Listen to it by this link on Blog Talk Radio.
WARNING! Please do not listen if you are easily upset!
Below is the link to a previous radio show, of October 2010, where Steve shares more details of what he and fellow Traditional Satanists did on Halloween.
It also gives an account of the Satanic calendar right through October, sharing what they did on each day, in preparation for Halloween.
Again, this carries a VERY strong warning! It does give information about animal and human rape and sacrifices.
Steve outlines the Satanic Calendar.

You can also see the TV interview of my friend Jeff Harshbarger below. He and I were co-authors of the book Dancing With The Devil.
In this interview of Halloween 2012, Doug Harris asks Jeff about his involvement in Theistic, then Traditional Satanism and how he found Jesus.

My online friend Gina Marisa, was once involved in Satanism. She advises Christians to avoid it. Please read her article here.

For those who don’t think that Halloween has Satanic implications, please consider the words in the below image.
Please be aware, there are different types of Satanists and multiple subcategories. As in Christianity, there are many denominations. Not all branches of Satanism are the same!
There are Theistic Satanists, Traditional and Generational Satanists, Pantheistic Satanists, Church of Satan, LaVeyan Satanists, etc.
They DON’T all commit crimes or conduct rituals! Some of them worship Satan as a real entity, while others don’t and actually they don’t even think he is real. For them, Satanism is more of a concept, a set of ideas.
Most Satanists are not Demon Worshippers!!! Most Luciferians don’t associate with Satanism, but instead, worship Lucifer as if he is still the bringer of light and enlightenment. As such, many New Age teachings accept Lucifer – Luciferian Mediums, Theosophists, etc. Some branches regard Satan and Lucifer as two aspects of the same being, but many don’t.
The basic common belief of all the branches, is a promotion or ‘worship’ of self, selfishness, greed, etc. Plus, they don’t believe in sin or the need of salvation, or look to Jesus Christ as Redeemer and Lord.
For example, during the summer my friend and I were evangelising in the streets. We met a 16 year old girl. She said she was a lesbian and was reading the Satanic Bible. She didn’t believe in Satan as a real figure. To her, it was merely a set of ideas to follow.
She said that where the Bible says ‘love your enemies’, that it didn’t make sense to her. But that ignoring your enemies and only loving those who love you, made more sense and that’s what she’d learned through the Satanic Bible. A very gentle and quiet girl, she did not believe in cruelty and would not seem the type of person to be involved in Traditional Satanism, conducting sacrifices, etc. She’d be more of a Theistic type of Satanist.
Please don’t think it is difficult to share the Gospel with any people group! We spoke with her for over 30 minutes, she shared her beliefs and my friend and I told her about Jesus. When she asked Jesus into her life, and repented for her sin, she actually placed her hand on her heart. It was so moving.
How many Christians would have walked past her, because she dressed in black and wore Occult jewellery? She was so ready to be saved! John 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
Sometimes, on YouTube, I hear from Theistic Satanists who think it’s crazy that EX Satanists who became Christians will speak of the evil they did. Simply because, in their own Satanic lifestyle, they don’t do the same things as Trads.
Basically, I hope to emphasise that not all types of Satanists believe or practise the same things. So, if you meet one, please ask questions, before you assume they are of the hardcore type.
Do remember, greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world, 1 John 4:4. Please pray for your neighbourhood’s protection this Halloween and also for the salvation of covens in your town.
Psalm 64:5-8 They encourage each other in evil plans,
they talk about hiding their snares;
they say, “Who will see it[a]?”
They plot injustice and say,
“We have devised a perfect plan!”
Surely the human mind and heart are cunning.
Luke 8:17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.
The above testimonies of Jeff and Steve show that Jesus wants to save everyone, no matter how dark their life is. As you can see from this blog, there are many who can testify of Jesus bringing them out of the New Age or Occult. So, please do pray for Satanists, whatever branch they adhere to.
Other than Jeff & Steve, I know several other Ex Trads, who found Jesus and left Satanism. Most of them now have Christian Ministries, helping others break free. One woman, an EX Satanist from Edinburgh, prefers not to be in ministry and doesn’t tell anyone about her past. That adds to the truth of the fact, that EX Occultists don’t share in public, just so they can make a name or money for themselves! I know of many EX Occultists who keep their past private.
The following Psalm is so apt for many of us, who have been rescued out of darkness, into His glorious light, love and life! Hallelujah!
10 Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness,
prisoners suffering in iron chains,
11 because they rebelled against God’s commands
and despised the plans of the Most High.
13 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.
14 He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness,
and broke away their chains.
15 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
16 for he breaks down gates of bronze
and cuts through bars of iron.
20 He sent out his word and healed them;
he rescued them from the grave.
21 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind.

interesting info about the various branches of satanism, and that they are not all the same thing. However, I hasten to add, that every kind of satanism or Luciferianism is simply a variation of the one theme, Whether intentional or not, adherents to the said forms of S’ism or L’ism are all aspects to the Kingdom of Darkness; each and every such person must be brought into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son – Jesus Christ, through repentance and faith and obedience to Jesus Christ, the One who crushed the serpents head..
May God keep and help you Laura to continue to reach such dear souls while it is still day.
I agree, whether people realise it or not, it’s all under satan’s kingdom of darkness. Thank God, Jesus shines His light and truth and frees those who seek Him. Thanks for commenting! God bless you!
The “adoption” of Halloween in Satanism post dates the actual pagan roots of the holiday. Christmas also has pagan roots. Halloween is a secular holiday. Days cannot impose themselves on people. A day or holiday is not sentient. There is a fallacy of association here. Several bad assumptions are being made here. One is that Halloween was “created”. Sure, their was time when there wasn’t a hallow’s eve, and then a time when there was. But people cannot create days that just go on living. People can’t create time. They can symbolically label specific days to their own ends, but every year they must do the same again. There is the assumption that the purpose of the day cannot be changed. The reasons people celebrate a day can change over time. There is no reason that the original purpose carries any greater weight than the present intention. But all of this is a trick of language. In reality you don’t change the meaning of the day. That implies that past holidays are just floating out their in the ether, waiting to be “changed” by mankind’s collective decision to change it. In reality we just repeat certain celebrations every 365 days. The day never repeats. And People do not own days. To think that some group of people has the power to infuse a piece of time with a certain meaning in a way that future people cannot escape is silly. People do not accidentally become christians by going to church. There has to be some intention. Not just intention to associate with other christians, but an intention to be devout, have faith, and on. Most people don’t believe in monsters. People aren’t celebrating monsters. Most people. An ex satanist’s perspective on halloween can only tell you what halloween means to that person. Not what it means to someone else.
