Are Ghosts Real?
Do Christians believe ghosts are real?
Q: Are there such things as ghosts? I saw a ghost for the first time in my life, but I am a believer, and I know what the Bible says about such things. This wasn’t even someone I knew. Why would I see this? Marvena
A: Certainly, the word ghost is used over a hundred times in the KJV, for example; Gen. 25:8, Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died… and Mtt. 1:18 where Mary was, found with child of the Holy Ghost.
God’s Spirit is called the Holy Ghost.
From this you can see that ‘ghost’ means spirit.
What the world calls ‘ghosts’ are actually evil spirits; demons manifesting, or seen in a vision.
