Is it OK for Christians to watch ghost hunting TV shows?

This article is from 2021 and may be outdated. We're working on restoring a newer version.

Most Christians’ beliefs allow them to watch some (perhaps not all) ghost hunting TV shows.

Some denominations may not. Follow your own belief system.

That’s especially true if ghost-related TV shows make you feel frightened, depressed, or question your spiritual beliefs.

For Christians who do not believe in ghosts, ghost hunting TV shows may be nothing more than farce and entertainment.

As long as ghost hunting TV shows don’t disturb you, or feel like a transgression, I think it’s fine to watch them.

Whether all ghost hunting TV shows are worthy of your time… that’s another matter.

And the Devil Shivered, by Dustin PariAlso, if you’re a devout Christian, you may enjoy insights into the life of Dustin Pari, who’s been part of the Ghost Hunters™ TV series. Dustin’s book is “And the Devil Shivered.”

Dustin is a great guy. I’ve spent many hours with him at the event where we were both guest speakers.

This book isn’t about the TV show, or even about ghosts. But, he does include those topics in his discussions about his everyday life, and what it’s like to be a dad, a husband, a TV star, and – above all – a Christian.

His insights may help you resolve your questions about ghosts, paranormal research, and your faith.
