Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis wants people to give out Bible literature on Halloween. 

Creationist Ken Ham, who runs a Noah’s Ark attraction in Kentucky, is calling on followers to put some Jesus into Halloween. 

In a new blog post, Ham said all of those trick-or-treaters coming to the door on Oct. 31 provide “a fantastic opportunity to share the saving gospel with your friends and neighbors.” 

Ham’s message was actually a sales pitch for his organization’s “Halloween Learn & Share Kits,” which include religious pamphlets as well as fake money with Bible messages to be given out to candy-seeking children:

The fake million-dollar bills come with a picture of either a dinosaur or Noah’s Ark on the front and ominous warnings of damnation on the reverse side. 

“Have you ever lied, stolen or used God’s name in vain?” a message on one of the bills reads. “If so, you’ve broken God’s law. The penalty for your crimes against God is death and eternal hell.”

Kids will love it. 

If trick-or-treaters hear about the weird fake money offerings and stop showing up, Ham has a backup plan.

“Try ‘reverse-trick-or-treating’ when you bring a basket of goodies to bless your neighbors,” he wrote on the Answers in Genesis website. “Include a gospel booklet with your home-baked or store-bought treats. This is a great way to encourage your kids to give and bless others as well as share the gospel as a family.”
