    Officially methodist.But goes back and forth between the idea of the soul with methodism and jehovah's witness.
    Some people believe poltergeists are just demons.So I read up on poltergeists and found out poltergeists hauntings involve physical and sexual attacks.If these are really just demons and not dead people's spirits running around.Why would God let a demon beat you up and rape you?:confused:

    My speculative answer: Because you opened the door or are in the wrong place.

    What difference does it make why God does this or why God does that or why God does not do this or why God does do this the point being that's why he is God.

    According to the dictionary....."poltergeist" means....

    "German Polter (“rumble”) + Geist (“spirit”). to. German Polter (“rumble”) + Geist (“ghost”). The German source 'Geist' has both translations 'spirit' and 'ghost', but here it is clearly 'ghost', compare to definition of 'poltergeist': A ghost which makes noises and causes disruption."

    So all it means is a noisy or disruptive spirit that may manifest itself in many ways.

    Since the flood of Noah's day, the rebel angels have not been able to materialize. They demonstrate their presence in other ways. They need a physical 'anchor' so their presence is invited by having demonised objects in your possession.....or engaging in spiritistic practices.

    From the pre-flood account, it is obvious that their main activity is to degrade humanity with excessive sexual gratification and violence. Even though they cannot materialize anymore, their obsession with sex and violence has never changed. In these last days, their activity has increased to the point where the whole world is saturated with these things.....the entertainment industry thrives on providing humans with as much gratuitous sex and graphic violence as is possible. A steady diet of these things kills off human compassion and develops a taste for these things that goes beyond just fanaticising about them. As a result, we see crimes committed that defy humanity....sickening acts that have no justifiable reason.

    We feed our own fallen human appetites with these things.....of our own volition. Whether we believe it or not, they affect our thinking and eventually our conduct. The Bible warns us not to dabble in these things....we do so at our own peril.
