The question, “Do you believe in life after death” was posed to me this past week. After answering with “Yes” based on my belief in an eternal life in heaven or hell, the inquirer began to relate her experience of what she believes is a visit from her recently deceased father. While listening to her detailed account of the ghostly event, I could not help but remember the times I thought I saw my brother-in-law during the weeks following his death. Oh, how I love that big teddy bear of a man whose growl was bigger than his bite, who would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it, and the only man in my life I remember calling me sweetheart. Do I believe in ghosts? No! We have one life and one death. However, I do believe God used my overactive imagination to tell me Terry is with Him. Now that brings a smile to my face… knowing I will see him again in Heaven. These thoughts then led to questioning the popularity of TV shows such as Ghost Hunters, Ghost Whisperer, and psychic mediums. Is their popularity related to a person’s perception of eternity? Why do people easily accept the so-called paranormal yet cannot accept the reality of Jesus?
Let’s chat about it…Have you wondered about these same questions? What Hmmm do you come up with?
