  • I believe it's possible, since we are composed of energy, that some energy is left behind that may be seen or sensed other some circumstances. That being said, I don't have any personal experience with ghosts or spirits and thus do not have any information to found a firmer opinion on.

  • Yes, I believe spirits are loved ones around us that have crossed over. Ghosts are stuck here because they have not gone into the light and often need help. I do not believe in demons but I do believe in ghosts with dark energy.

  • I do not believe we have immortal souls therefore we don't live on after we die, the "spirits" are demons who (like Satan told Eve) want people to believe that they really won't die as God told Adam he would if he ate from the Tree....

  • Freela, I think that too!! The law of conservation of mass (maybe??) says that energy is created nor destroyed. So where do our energy go when we're gone? Gotta go somewhere, right? As for ghosts and what not, I'm objective, but open minded.

  • I ask because (Biblically speaking) we sleep after death, and spirits were unclean (demons I believe?) But I have "met" some innocent-looking ghosts (little children) which was a mask. I'm not sure if that makes sense, but they were malicious beings who wanted trust/sympathy to get my guard down. So they appeared as innocents but were not. Now I've freaked myself out remembering them lmao!

  • I believe the Bible, "To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord." So, no I don't believe in ghosts.

  • I sure do. I think there are a number of different types... Ghosts, poltergists and so on... Some are spirits of people and others are energy and yet others are "evil" entities. I don't believe in biblical demons as in ruled by satan, but I do believe in demonic creatures and entities... These can manifest in may ways and forms. So, I think that they are really all of the above, depending on the occurance. I would be a fool not to after some of the things I've seen. In my town EVERY house is "haunted." I've had ghosts put my dishes away and attack me physically... Moving furnature and night time foot steps are basically nothing around here!

  • Id agree with Freela. We are energy, so its totally possible to hang around.
    I dont believe in demons though. People with negative energy, sure but not a demon type deal.

  • Yes I do. What they are depends on what they look like or what they are doing.

  • I believe this:

    “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.”
    Ecc. 9:5

    I don't believe that ghosts/spirits/apparitions are human.
