Nicole, there’s this new show on TLC called Long Island Medium. The lady can talk to ghosts and is just like Jennifer Love Hewitt in Ghost Whisperer. Is this real or what? Should we stay away from this stuff? Is there something in the Bible saying stuff about this?
Hi girls, the above question was posted in the forums by ShiningAngel. Especially around Halloween, girls often wonder about what the Bible says about ghosts, mediums, and other “scary” things that seem to be celebrated. Here are my thoughts:
It’s one thing to dress up in a costume, but make sure your outfit isn’t skimpy, but that it’s modest and inspired and good. Let me repeat: not gangster or pirate wench! There’s nothing wrong with enjoying candy with your friends, but it’s another thing to entertain demonic things like ghosts and demons. Decorating your house with witches and ghouls, the energy is bad. In my opinion, it’s like you’re inviting in bad energy.
As for this new show about mediums, it’s really the same thing: Glorifying the dead is scary if you think about it. Stay far, far away from that. As Christians, we’re supposed to be examples and be accountable for our actions. We can’t be engaging in ghoulish behavior. Stay away from haunted houses. That’s my personal opinion — I used to go to them, but it’s a bad idea.
