It’s Halloween and there’s a story that just came out about a woman named Amethyst Realm who claims to have copulated with 20 ghosts in her lifetime, but for the last nine months has been in a monogamous relationship with a nameless singular ghost and they are planning to get married. In this 7 minute interview on the British morning Show This Morning, she confesses her desire to have a baby with the spirit and attempts to explain a little bit about phantom pregnancy though her explanation lacks substance.

Amethyst’s profession is a Spiritual Guidance Counselor in which she helps others make contact and commune with spirits. Christians should immediately have red flags about her profession and behavior. In our post The Horror, we address important truths about the dangers of communing with spirits. I think Amethyst is telling the truth in that she is communing with an otherworldly creature, but her pleasant and matter-of-fact attitude reveals a deathly self-deception. While ghosts are real, what Amethyst is communing with is very much unlikely a spirit of a deceased human being, but rather a deceptive, and as Jesus would describe, an unclean spirit (demon). The Bible is very clear about demons: they do not desire our good, but to kill, steal, and destroy as they masquerade as beings of light and goodness.
