Never seen a ghost before , not sure anyone can.. what with everyone having an HD camera in their pocket for the last 10 years you would think someone would have got something by now... same as big foot my .02 

 

But i do believe 100% in spirits and demonic possessions its just that we can't see them outside the flesh. 

 

This is how it seemed to work in the Bible anyway. 

 

And i have most definitely felt a presence before ..every time was when i was at my weakest or strongest ... like someone pulling the strings... if anyone can understand what I'm saying

We know form history and from the Bible that there are angels, and that some of them revolted against God and were cast out, becoming the devil and his demons, and that these demons have influence on earth. We know from history, experience and the Bible that our souls are immortal, but I think most "ghosts" are not actually a dead relative but either imagination or a demon.

 

Here's an interesting discussion on demons and possession https://www.patrickcoffin.media/jhauntings-possessions-and-exorcisms/

I was going to make my own observation in this thread, but you said it for me.  I've never seen a ghost, but demons are part of the Biblical narrative.  The more time you spend in the Third World, the easier it is to grasp the truth of the Bible.  Only demonically-possessed people can do the things that they do, there.  Consider Boko Haram, in Nigeria, and the absolute atrocities they commit in the name of Mohammad.  That's just one example.

I am Catholic. I believe, have seen, and have battled demons.  Satan is loosing more of them on earth everyday. The Pope, the false prophet, is likely possessed.  God has sealed his eyes and ears so he cannot see or hear the truth. And his minions are all infected 

This is why I prefer to spend my life with Jesus, Mary and all the angels and saints.

If you believe the Pope is a false prophet, who is possessed by a demon, and that God has sealed his eyes and ears, and that all his "minions" (presumably all of the clergy?) are "infected" you are not Catholic, no matter what you call yourself. You believe that God has not only abandoned the Magisterium, but is actively leading it into error.

That's not to say that Pope Francis can't sin of that Pope Francis can't be wrong, even gravely wrong, but as a Catholic we hold that the Holy Spirit is the guarantor of the faith, and that He does not abandon his church.

Oh, and the Pope is not the church.  Jesus has not and never will desert the church. Agreed in totum. 
But if the Pope is  anything, he’s the anti-church.  He worships pagan idols, expounds on the acceptance of homosexuality and transgenderism.  He insists we do not make the sign of the cross,  works with the UN communist agenda  He is the property of Satan.  And by minions I’m referring to the bishops and cardinals that he hides from prosecution for numerous heinous sex crimes, corruption, theft of millions of dollars from the church.  If that kind of Pope is good for you, ok.  I will not deny he is Pope because my Mother says he’s pope but dogma says nothing about me having to like it. 
I believe we are on Rev: 13.

"I guess than, that you don’t believe Revelations? "

 

You guess wrong, I do believe in it, and I could accept that we are in chapter 13, but the Pope doesn't fit any of that. Who has great authority over the world? Certainly not Pope Francis, who is ignored by both Christians and no-Christians alike. Who demands worship? Certainly not Pope Francis. Who has power over the beast? Certainly not Pope Francis. To the extent that the beast is a person the Pope has none of its attributes.

 

Also, he does not worship pagan idols, does not accept homosexuality and transgenderism, has not forbade the sign of the cross. I can understand why you would think so, given the news stories, but if you believe those stories in the media, if you believe he said/did those things, you are listening to the father of lies.

 

I believe he is cooperating with the UN communist agenda, but that just makes him ignorant, like millions of other people, not the "property of satan." I believe he does protect corrupt people, but again, you don't have to be evil to do that. I believe he is doing damage to the church, and Christianity in general, but because he is not a good leader, not because he is possessed. Ultimately, he is a flawed and sinful man, but just a man.

Oh, I think he is The False Profit.  His teachings directly oppose the teachings of the Catholic Church.  I agree with my good bishops and cardinals. Schneider, Burke, Sarah all think he’s the false prophet.  Personally I think he’ll end before 2020 ends and then we can deal with the anti-pope.

However regardless of what the future brings the salvation of souls is supreme law.  
For me, I hope to wear red in heaven

Pssh. I honestly don't know. I had a terrifying experience once as a child I had chalked up to being a child.

 

That was until about two years ago when I moved into a new(to me) house. 

I had always thought it was kinda nonsense when it sounded like people experienced some sort of haunted gaslighting. 

That home had some series something going on.  There was an accidental death from a firearm previously at that location. My brother in law was cousins with the woman who was accidentally killed so it was confirmed.

 

Back to story though. 

The first two weeks was very quite. 

After that point I started to notice a soft light lullaby melody when the house was still and quite.  I hadn't mentioned anything at first until my fiancee asked me if I was attempting to scare her. 

Totally creeped out 3 weeks into a 6 month lease. 

After a bit we started to notice a very particularly strange occurance I had never heard or even seen on television. 

My two clocks which were battery powered analog started to stop at the same exact time.

Which at first didn't surprise me I just figured probably put the batteries in at the same time so odd but not impossible. 

The impossible part was when we returned for the store several hours later both clocks were functioning with the correct time.  

Another instance was a large dog bone was standing straight up in the air like someone was using it as a cane. 

Once I was in our far bathroom when the light blew randomly then all the hallway doors 

After that point it continued to escalate with doors rattling and opening and slamming.  

This type of behavior became almost an everyday thing.

 

About 4 months in we bit the bullet and broke our lease. 

Apparently the place had a hard time keeping tenants the manager ever offered Us a discount to stay.  The previous tenants abandoned a good portion of their possessions before we had moved in. Last I heard they were having difficult getting maintenance techs to go in. 

 

After that experience I don't really know what to believe when it comes to ghosts.
