WHAT IS HOLY GHOST?
Many articles on why the Holy Ghost was changed to the Holy Spirit give the simple explanation that the word “ghost” conjures up scary images of disembodied dead people or, worse, has Halloween or cartoon connotations. Some articles say that Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit are synonymous. However, Hebrew Streams takes an in-depth look, explaining that Christian translators had a specific reason for using Holy Ghost, to reflect their belief that the Holy Ghost was not the Holy Spirit and to reinforce a separation between Christian and Hebraic/Jewish foundations. Maybe that is why many churches still use Holy Ghost in their names and services.
Sarah wrote down chest heaving. That’s what Alex said, anyhow. She lost $10,198 and was left with $2.00.
Cheryl got it right. Her $10,000 bet brought her up to $20,600.
Zoey came up with lung disease. That cost her $3,000 (and earned her a “boo, hiss from Alex). She landed in second place with $7,900 and Cheryl Guy became the new Jeopardy! champ.
