Are you old enough to remember watching this cartoon on TV?
Or how about this one?
Topper, the man who had ghosts living in his house. They’d been killed in a car accident, and needed to do more good deeds before being allowed into heaven. The theology was pretty weak, but it was a fun show. Topper, of course, was the only one who could see and hear the ghosts. Many funny situations were created on that simple theme.
These were two of my earliest memories of ghosts. Happy, helpful souls. It wasn’t until I saw A Christmas Carol on TV for the first time that I realized not all ghosts were benign. I was about eight, I think, and the movie was very old, black and white–probably the first movie ever made of Dickens’ classic tale. I had weird dreams on that Christmas Eve night!
Do ghosts really exist? I don’t believe so. I’m too grounded in biblical truth to believe in such things. And even if I did, I don’t think I’d be afraid of them. It doesn’t seem to me that anything so ethereal that you can walk through it could really do much harm 🙂
