In Germany, it is known as Walpurgisnacht, in Ireland and Scotland as Beltaine or Baltein, when the god Baal, Bel or Balder was burned in effigy. Sometimes a man is chosen to leap through the fires known as Balerís balefires in rural Scandinavia (ibid., pp. 624-626). Many will remember from Scripture the references to Baal.
Anciently, Israel also served Baal. "And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made for themselves two idols cast in the shape of calves, and an Asherah pole. They bowed down to all the starry hosts and they worshipped Baal" (2Kgs. 17:16). See also Judges 2:13.
But what did God say to Elijah? "I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal" (Rom. 11:4). We too should be among those who remain faithful to the One True God and not worship other gods.
This is the time of year that the goddess of witchcraft reaches her full power. Large bonfires are lit to welcome the goddess. Jeremiah tells us that sometimes these fires were for sacrificing people, ďThey have built the high places of Baal, to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal - something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind" (Jer. 19:5). We know this is not Godís Law or will.
The Maypole dance is an ancient fertility symbol and dance. The dance was to be continuous interweaving of partners to ward off evil. The Maypole dance was the origin of the square dancerís Grand Right and Left, as men and women passed in and out of each otherís circles winding the ribbons around the pole (Walker, ibid., pp. 25,26).
