A Biblical Response to Protests
Protesting against wickedness is Biblical. Damage to property and violence is not. "For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace…" 1 Corinthians 14:33
Elijah protested against the idolatry and apostasy of Israel (1 Kings 18:18-40); Isaiah protested against the wickedness of Egypt and Cush (Isaiah 20); Jeremiah protested against the social sins of drunkenness, adultery and prostitution (Jeremiah 13); Ezekiel protested against immorality and violence in Jerusalem (Ezekiel 24); Jesus protested against the corruption and desecration of the Temple by the moneylenders who turned the House of God into a den of thieves (Mark 11:15-17).
Biblical examples of challenging unrighteousness in public affairs have included: Personally approaching the officials or by writing letters exposing injustice and calling for repentance and obedience to the Law of God.

The Urgent Need for Reformation Today
Ecclesia Reformata Reformanda Est (The Church, having been Reformed, is still to be Reformed).
Scripture alone is our ultimate authority on all matters of faith and conduct.
Christ alone is the Head of the Church, and He is the only Mediator between God and man.
Salvation is by the Grace of God alone, received by Faith alone.
Everything is to be done for the glory of God alone.
These great Reformation principles challenge us to regular and rigorous self-criticism and constant re-evaluation of our personal lives, congregations, missions, families and society.
A Biblical Response to Halloween

"Test all things; hold fast to what is good. Abstain from every form of evil." 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22
A Celebration of Evil
Halloween is a religious day, but it is not Christian. Tom Sanguinet, a former high priest in Wicca has said: "The modern holiday that we call Halloween has its origins in the full moon closest to November 1, the witches' new year. It is a time when the spirits (demons) are supposed to be at their peak power and revisiting planet earth… Halloween is purely and absolutely evil, and there is nothing we ever have, or will do, that would make it acceptable to the Lord Jesus."
