Greater love hath no ghost

I was watching the Ghost Whisperer episode "No Safe Place" which aired on Friday 10/19. Melinda tries to help a ghost who was a stalking victim and ends up being the target of the stalker. So after she exposes the stalker, with the help of the ghost, he commits suicide and comes after her. As he's about to reach out to grab her a pair of woman's arms reaches and grabs him and drags him down into the darkness.

When I saw that I was reminded of the statement of Christ in John 15:13, "Greater love has no man than to give his life for his friends." Translation doesn't matter. They all say almost exactly the same thing.

The woman who was the victim in this chose to give up going into the light in order to save Melinda from whatever the stalker ghost was going to do to her. Or you could look at it as she chose the darkness to make sure he went there as well. After seeing what the guy did I won't debate her wisdom.
