Why Christians should question the ghosthunting necromancy

As a fan of those “ghost hunting” TV / cable shows I have to admit I worry about those who investigate so called ‘Hauntings’.


Its no wonder why God fore warned his followers not to mess with ‘spirits’ that donot profess him.



TORAH / OT Examples:



*The corruption of ungodly nations.

Deuteronomy 18:10-14



*The dead know nothing. Ecclesiastes 9:5-6

Ecclesiastes 9:10


*Familiar spirits:


Lev 19:31, 20:6-27

De 18:11

Isaiah 28:3

1 Sam 28:7-9

2 Kings 21:6, 23:24

1 chro 10:13

Isaiah 8:19, 19:3, 29:4



All of these examples taken from the Torah are ancient examples of what ghost hunting uses to communicate with the supposed ‘dead’.

Such as: Necromancy (EVP, Ouija), Sorcery (Various rituals presented on ghost adventures, paranormal state etc)…


NT Examples:


Deceiving Spirits:


1 John 4:1-3


Unclean spirits that Jesus cast out.**


Mark 1:21-28

Mark 5:1-20

Mark 7:24-30

Mark 9:14-30


Luke 4:31-37

Luke 9:26-39


Paul casts out ‘spirit of divination’

Acts 16:16-19


The following examples are from:


*Strong’s exhaustive concordance of the Bible.”

*Page 384

**Page: 967-969


In my limited experience dealing with ‘ghosts’ I am confident that they are not the souls of the dead. But demonic entities imitating their ‘charges’ and manipulating those who ‘hunt’ them. Had Jesus and the disciples actually had to deal with ghosts it would have been recorded in the Gospels and we would have been trained to deal with such spirits.


Neither Jesus nor God wants us to seek out, hunt or attempt communication with those spirits. He wants us to concentrate on him and Praise him daily.
