Most of you have probably been asked or heard of people seeing ghosts before and this is a highly discussed topic because nobody actually knows for sure. Ghosts could be among us for all we know or they could just be a complete myth, but for now we don’t know and maybe we will never know, but for now lets just say they do exist.
For all you Supernatural fans out there you would recognize this screaming guy as Dean Winchester, my favorite person in the T.V. show right above of Castiel. If you are in love with Supernatural you would know that this is when Dean sees a cat jumping out in front of him after a moments of suspense with their guns ready. Many of us think and imagine ghosts as a bad thing, but there are many examples in stories and films where they are also depicted as good. For example, in Supernatural a lot of ghosts start off good and clueless about what happened, but then after a long period of time and finding out how they died they could become vengeful and evil. Bobby Singer was a hunter and he was killed by Dick, the leader of the Leviathans. Bobby was good and he wanted to continue helping the Winchester brothers and he did, but after a period of time he became angry and frustrated because he hated Dick and he wanted him dead at any costs. Many times hurting the Winchester brothers who he loved dearly.
Also in The Count of Monte Cristo, Morrel thought the ghost of Dante brought him good fortune with the “Pharaoh” being rebuilt and sent back to him and his debts being paid for him. People back then even though this is a fictional book not only believed in ghosts, they also believed that ghosts could be a good thing. Many people all over the world believe in ghosts and claim that they saw a ghost or saw ghosts. In fact I have a friend who says that her mom and relatives claimed to see ghosts of past ancestors and loved ones who have passed away. This could be possible, but some people claim these are lies. Many people I know who go to my church believe ghosts are fake and people all over the world believe ghosts are fake, but in the bible itself it is written that there is a such thing as ghosts.
Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”(Matthew 14:25-27,)
I do believe in ghosts even though I have never seen one ever in my life.
