Interesting Stories

I just posted 2 stories (not written by me) that share a little more about Marion Wesley Stembridge, that shed a little more light on who he was, and what he did. There’s actually a story going on currently involving the house he lived in.

“Well, one of our past relatives, Marion Stembridge, is in the news again.  No, not because his ghost has frightened off another interloper in Marion’s old house on Washington Street.  The house has been reputed to have his ghost roaming the halls since his demise back in 1953 by his own hand after killing 2 of the attorneys who were trying to put him in jail for the killing of a woman who was trying to help defend John Cooper from  Marion who was trying to get payment for a car he had sold Cooper.  By the way, that house, I think, is for sale because all prospective buyers get run off by some unknown entity stomping through the house.” written by my Dad, Roger E. Stembridge

Here’s s picture my nephew Chad just sent of Marion’s Grave. The whole idea of ghosts used to really interest me. I view things much differently now, I know there is a very real spiritual war taking place. I do however believe that once you die, you enter either into heaven or hell – depending on the way you viewed Jesus Christ. This is the belief taught in the Bible; which I have excellent reason to believe is the Word of God!

What do you think?

    I have a picture of his gravestone in the Milledgeville Cemetery… I think I’ll send it over to you!

    Personally, I believe that “ghosts” are actually demons who have taken on some actual person’s personality… Thus, being in Christ, I need to have no fear of them (still realizing, of course, that the spiritual warfare is still very real, though unseen, around me)!

  3. I agree Chad, we are told there is a spiritual realm; and given the tools to enter into battle. Ever notice that there is only one offensive tool listed, the rest are defensive.

    Ephesians 6:10-12
    “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (NIV)

    I remember growing up, I used to always love hearing scary ghosts stories; it wasn’t until I accepted Christ that I began learning about the spiritual world, and the dangers involved in the occult. I now know that we need to fear God, above anything and everything else.
