Couple Challenge: Weekend Getaway


Almost all old historic districts have some kind of ghost tour. If you don’t take them too seriously, they can be fun. The idea of ghosts has been around a long time. When Jesus came walking on water to the disciples in a storm, the disciples at first thought they saw a ghost. Throughout the Bible, there are verses that tell about people being raised from the dead. However, all these people were raised with their full body, so there really is no Biblical documentation to support the idea of ghosts. In fact, in Job 14:12, the Bible says, “so man lies down never to rise again. They will not wake up until the heavens are no more; they will not stir from their sleep.” Even in the rapture when the graves are opened, and the Christians are taken up to meet Jesus, the Bible tells us they will be given a glorified body—so, still no ghosts. But you can enjoy the stories on the ghost tour.

The tombs were also opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. And they came out of the tombs after His resurrection, entered the holy city, and appeared to many. — Matthew 27:52-53.
