    Where in the bible does it say you can't give sweets to kids on Halloween? I swear some people come up with new sins everyday :rolleyes:
    Didn't Jesus hang out with sinners all the time?

    (5/10 troll attempt)
    It says in both the OT and NT not to honour or worship gods other than God. Halloween is a festival celebrating the devil therefore participating in it would be honouring the devil more than God.

    Yes, if they think you aren't in they will probably give you the benefit of the doubt.

    Just park the car a couple of streets away. They might egg your windows or house next year.

    Such scum.
    Right, I will try to remember to switch off the lights next year on Halloween and see if it saves me getting egged. Suppose it depends what mood the kids are in on the night, if they are in a sulk they may just egg property regardless
    I don't see the idea of parking several streets away , like you said they'd probably just egg the house instead.
    And even if I did park several streets away, my car could still get egged .

    Last year trying to clean the egg off my car almost made me sick, it realreally stank as I think it was a rotten egg, it was cold but dry weather last Halloween so by the next day it was dried on. Took hours to try and clean it off and had to be careful not to damage paintwork. In the end I couldnt get all of it off so I gave up

    Thank goodness Halloween isn't in Summer when it's hot, otherwise the egg would be almost impossible to remove once baked on by the heat of the sun

    Jesus says we should not worship anybody but him. If you celebrate Halloween then you worship Satan. If you hand out sweets then you are participating in Halloween and also are encouraging children too as well

    Can't believe the people in this thread. OP does not want to buy sweets for halloween. The end. Stop trying to convince him otherwise.

    OP I'm sorry for your car. Halloween is one of the many occasions when children can act like complete ***** and get away with it. There's not much more you can do except wash your car and make sure it is ok. Don't give in.
    Thank you very much for your sincere reply and condolences.

    It feels as though almost every person on this thread is saying I deserved to have my property egged

    What horrible little monsters; I guess they really did take on the Halloween spirit, eh?

    If they've egged your car before in previous years they sure as heck don't deserve any sweets off you. They don't deserve any sweets whatsoever period. Appalling parenting on the part of their guardians.

    You shouldn't have to put up with this chavvy behaviour but chances are if they're doing it to you they are probably doing it to others. I would suggest cameras but obviously they would be in costume.

    If you know they are go and have some stern words with their parents. If not I guess you would just have to confront them in the act.

    Lmao at people trying to justify this because the OP didn't give out sweets due to their religion.

    It is NOT okay to do something like this just because "it's halloween and x didn't give us sweets" jeez maybe some of you need to get a better grip of reality.

    Some pastors advocate giving sweets out but also with Christian tracts and even go so far as to say hosting your own Halloween party but with biblical figures instead of devils and monster costumes.

    Maybe try that next year OP?

    I can't believe people are acting like this is his fault for not buying sweets.:curious: If people don't want to take part in Hallowe'en, then that is fine and absolutely does not make it okay for their property to be vandalised. I'm sorry about your car, OP:hugs:

    Because I know the Bible, I know the word of God, of Jesus.

    In Islam the followers worship a man, just an average man who lived a long time ago and he was nothing more than that. Followers of Islam may as well just go and worship Alan who lives down the road if they are worshipping Allah

    Jesus Christ is the creator of everything and everybody, he is the way the truth and the life. It is only through Jesus that one can recieve Salvation and an eternity in his Heavenly paradise

    Those who worship false gods, ie Allah will go to hell
    why dont you worship the holy spirit or the father? why only jesus you worship. these are all supposed to be god in different forms.

    plus i can ask you to give me a quote where jesus himself said he is god?

    We worship all three as all three are different forms of the Christian God. It's kinda like how water can be steam, water and ice and yet is the same molecule. When you become a Christian the Holy Spirit is supposed to come into your heart but in the Bible it says it is Jesus/God that comes into your heart. So basically God is both in your heart and in heaven at the same time. You worship God/Jesus/The Holy Spirit by obeying the Holy Spirit in your heart and following the Bible.

    It's kind of hard to explain if you are not a Christian.

    I'm still in my PJ's laying in bed writing this. I woke up a few minutes ago to hear raised voices coming from the chavvy neighbour s next door. Now they've retreated back indoors

    So, I just lifted up the window nets slightly, enough so that I could see if my car was okay following Halloween last night as where we live lots of people walk by and we had a lot of trick or treater's last night, every single knock went unanswered as we do not celebrate Halloween, we are Christian.

    So my car is parked at the side of the house on the road, I can only see one side of my car from this window, the passenger side. It is very misty today and rather wet but I'm sure I can see egg on my bonnet, I'm sure its not just dew from mist. I can see like egg lines on my car bonnet, at least that is what I think it is.

    I will go and check my car over after I have another little sleep. I hope its not egg and hope the rest of my car is okay

    I've only had this car several months and it is in black


    My previous silver car got egged last year on mischief night
    This is 2015

    Instead of writing a thread on how your car got potentially egged, why not just go check?

    I've heard about this before and its a good idea I suppose. My stepdad was a pastor and once lead the Church, I remember one year and I was only a kid, around 10 years old I think and he organised a church party celebrating Jesus on Halloween can't remember all the ins/outs but thought it was a good idea
    Sadly he fell back into sin and went off with another woman and we haven seen him now for about 10 years, My Mum is still married to him though

    Yes, they do seem to take on the Halloween spirit every single year and it seems like I'm one of their targets every Halloween to throw eggs at. It's been several years in a row on Halloween that I've been egged and had my property egged.
    I think it was the year before last , I was walking home on Halloween when some yobs lobbed an egg very hard at me, hitting me on the ribs and it hurt and left a red mark and my clothes were basically ruined.

    I think the parents would just give abuse if I went to speak to them tbh

    Sorry, I forgot to update everybody

    Yes, my car has been egged with 2 eggs, one looks like it was smashed into my bonnet but missed windshield, another egg made impact with rear drivers side door hitting window , egg splattered everywhere

    It's going to be a nightmare to clean it off but as it has been damp and misty this morning it should be a bit easier to clean off.

    No scratch or dent from the impact of the egg this time either

    Egging is probably a bunch of chavs using it as an excuse to cause trouble .
    IMHO if you are old enough ( nowadays) to trick or treat without a grown up with you, you are too old to do it.

    Not a believer but Halloween is not a pagan culture ( in Christian terms) it is supposed to celebrate the recently. Dead . The people knocking on doors were supposed to receive gifts in exchange for praying for the dead. The trick part is an American invention from the 1930's

    Next time offer sweets, but open the door wearing nothing but tiny leopard print tight underwear, and invite the kids in. They will run away and never come back.

    Just a bit of nonsense really, who ever egged your car owes you a free car wash.
