Before I sign off was rather what I meant. I am going on vacation. Be back.

Christianity preaches demons , exorcisms , the spirit world. It's all in there. Priest are trained in rituals to fight spirits, demons, "ghosts"....

It is well known. At my step sister's funeral the Priest mentioned not heaven, but the spirit world and a world between . He clearly said to let her find her out of the spirit world and into heaven. That is what these guys are taught that THERE IS A SPIRIT WORLD. Heaven hell and a spirit world .

So why...why do some Christians, most refuse to believe in "ghosts"?

A few links

What you are religious believe in angels , devil , god , and demons but you really do not believe in them ? What is the deal ?

It's in the scripture.

So what is up with that? :uhm:

If the scripture were followed to the letter, we would be stuck with Roman ideas about (for example) the role of women in society. This is not a good thing.

I'm not entirely sure on this, but I also think that as people thought the Earth was flat when the Bible was written, there must be some reference to the "edge of the world" or words to that effect somewhere. Ancient ideas on science etc should not be blindly followed purely because of the book they are featured in.

I think parents often play a big part. Maybe they just don't put much effort into making their children believe (or they themselves don't really believe these things). There's also school (I'm pretty sure most Christians spend more time in school than church) where science is basically the answer to everything. I think the major part though, is that a lot of these people might have never had an experience with a ghost and begin to doubt their existence.

I'm Catholic and I do believe that ghosts exist, but I think that's mostly because of experiences that I've had. They're small experiences, and if I were to try and tell them, I doubt anybody would really believe me, but they're experiences that I have nonetheless. Most Christians that I know, and truly seem to fully believe in their religion, are those that have some sort of story to tell.

I'm a Christian who has experienced Ghosts firsthand, so I guess I have to believe in them.

I suppose the reason Christians have a problem believing in Ghosts is that they are usually recognized as perished human souls, and Christians assume that the souls would either be in Heaven or in Hell (something I'm not sure I agree with, personally), and therefore could not be on this Earth.

Some might speculate that Purgatory is here on Earth (or just tied closely to it).

Ghosts are one of those things that I would have to see, to believe.

However, I am a very logical minded person. Even if somebody thinks it is a ghost, does not mean it is. There is most likely a more reasonable explanation for a series of events.

So, I've never seen a ghost.

Barely any Christians read their form of the bible, and some Christianities don't have spirits in their bible.

A Christian who does not believe in the Holy Ghost is not a Christian.

S3phiroth;4431991A Christian who does not believe in the Holy Ghost is not a Christian.

I think when they say "holy ghost", it probably refers more to a all-knowing spiritual presence rather than our definition of ghosts. The ones that haunt houses, float around graveyards, forbidden areas, and so on.

I think a thread like this belongs in the Pub anyways. I don't like it when people say "if you don't believe in X, you are not Y". Religion is what you bring it out to be.
