16,000 Christians & Locals Show Up for Rick Warren’s ‘Blocktober’ Alternative Halloween Festivities in CA

Famed pastor Rick Warren hosts an annual party for families who are looking for a safe, positive and fun way to celebrate Halloween. Rather than embracing negative messaging, children and parents, alike, can come in costume to play games and enjoy candy and a litany of family fun.

16000 people for $10,000?

I hope you arent on your churches budget committee, as that is .63 cents per person for

Candy
Face Painting
Zipline
Rock climbing
Utilities
Insurance
Employee OT(while they had volunteers, they employ many too)
etc...

Why offer such a negative response?

1) I doubt the event made a profit for his Church
2) October 31st is Reformation Day, a day we remember our sanctification from Rome. Oct 31st is only a wicked when you honour wickedness and not God. Reformation Day is in remembrance of the Luthers 95 Theses, and our freedom from Romes bondage of Saints.
3) & Please dont be hypocritical and pretend kids at your churches dont celebrate Halloween in wicked ways, odds are likely they do

Warren offered a meaningful alternative to the wickedness pervasive in the world that Gods children are exposed to.

If he honoured God and his Gospel at the event, I find it difficult to insult him over this.
