Hi Pansi - did you watch the Devil history video or the Exorcism one above -
- or were you too scared?

if not - you are forgiven - just as you have forgiven Spot.

No, I haven't watched it Bobby, but  - funny story, many years ago I went to a seance, apparently the house got a real poltergeist, things like vases and other ornamental objects used to randomly fly around the place, the owner was going out of her mind, so she asked the local pastor to come and do an exorcism, apparently it worked lol!!! I was freaked by the whole episode, real nail biting stuff.

Hi Pansi,
so you're saying that these devilish poltergeists really exist?
That means the Bible is correct!

I didn't see anything with my own eyes, so it could have been the ladies mind playing havoc, she'd just lost her husband so she would have been vulnerable to mind tricks.....maybe?? It's all about ghosts and stuff isn't it, good ones, bad ones, maybe the old boys who penned the bible saw some strange phenomena......or maybe it was added as a scare tactic.

Ghosts are, and poltergeists are naughty or disgruntled ghosts, aren't they? The trolls of the spiritual world. KJthingy will be a poltergeist when it dies  Smiley
.....................

"What are your thoughts on this statement by Jesus himself, who in

Luke 24, verse 39, said

"Touch me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don't have bodies, as you see that I do!"

Matthew 14:26

"And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear." This is the King James Version. The NIV and some others use the word "ghost" instead of "spirit".

Well jesus was a zombie not a ghost.

Why are ppl scared of ghosts anyway if they are non-corporeal? They cant touch you they cant hurt you Zombies on the other hand will eat your brains.

Ahhh I see what the problem was though. in those days they didnt have a word for zombies yet.

Do you think he was a zombie, spot? Did he eat people?

I think he was a centre left winger, a socialist, the complete opposite of the religious right that 'follow' him. I also think he died and stayed dead, as we do.

Imagine people in 2000 years time when they read the crap we write, they'd think we had millions of gods with the way we worship our sports people and movie stars, and that's when they're alive, they become even more  god-like when they die.

Jesus was just a cool dude. He would have voted for ???? maybe the greens, they're the closest to caring for the poor and downtrodden.
