Q. A friend of mine used to be my pastor, very committed to the cause. After the dissolution of the church though, it seemed to devastate him, and he no longer attends church, and has gotten involved with ghost hunting and other bad habits. As far as the ghost hunting is concerned, is it considered occultist? I also fear that with him ghost hunting, from what I hear, they can follow and come home with you. Is any of this true? Can you elaborate on the subject?
A. The spirits of departed believers go immediately to be with the Lord. (2 Cor. 5:8, Phil.1:21-24) That means if there are spirits wandering around on Earth they have to be demonic. Need I say more? Unless a person is very specifically called in to such a ministry, my advice is always to stay clear.
