I remember hearing a sermon from an evangelist once, where he was called to preach at a church that was having problems. Nobody at the church seemed to be able to identify just what the problem was, but the Pastor knew something was just not right. All attempts to move forward on any project was always met with roadblocks; people argued over trivial things, no one got along, and there was little trust in each other. So in a moment by himself, in the main sanctuary, he asked God to "open his eyes" and for evil spirits to reveal themselves. He then noticed something looking down at him from the rafters. A dark, ugly figure was crouched, clinging in the upper reaches of the ceiling. The evangelist then rebuked the spirit from the church, in the name of Jesus, and it jumped down in the center isle. It turned and walked out the front door and continued down the street several blocks until it turned and walked into a local bar. That night, the bar burned down. Anything can be affected by spiritual warfare.
Cool story, bro. My mother says her pop-pop used to see some freaky shit when he was a truck driver in Brazil. Like a guy getting beat up by an invisible figure, and a pastor saying that it was some kind of horrible freakish thing. Also, werewolves are really popular 'round here.
>>17185807 /x/ is supposed to be scary stuff and paranormal speculation. It's not speculation when people simply accept things as fact for no reason. Also, not spoopy enough. I'm not agains people having religions, just don't post about in places where we should be discussing more important things.
>>17185892 They accept it because they're conditioned to, like I was during a large portion of my life. Eventually, however, some of us grow a pair and start thinking on our own. What you choose to do with your life, however, is none of my concern as long as it's not fucking with /x/.
>>17185842 That's not in their nature. They're instigators. They live to mess with people. They thrive on it. They'll pretend to be your Nana on the ouija board, just to open a conversation with you. Evil spirits/ demons are the original Catfish...
>>17184123 Yes, bruh. Happened to me when I was a young lassy. > in church > climbing up the old stairs that made loud creaky sounds > turned to the left door > turned to another left door > open the door to a dark room > sees a black figure slowly float across the room
Bruh. I didn't believe it really was a ghost until I thought back of it a few years later... X_x
You are conditioned too, see? You see these kind of threads, read some words, see its not your kind of thing or that it goes againts your probable atheistic views (or whatever you believe in) and you decide to bash it because, again, this condition you have of bashing everything you disapprove will force you to shit sling your thoughts in the form of shitposts.
And hey, nothing againts people contributing opinions that go againts the stated topic of conversation, that prevents this from turning into a big echo chamber.
But when you go around pretending you are man, while speaking like a child, well... it just sucks bro.
>>17186091 several. but they didnt try and disguise since I know what they are. when I lived in TX we lived in a haunted house, small book shelf would literally fly off wall over 20 feet at you, my senpai would see it except my dad since he didnt pay mind to that shit then for a while after we moved didnt experience much until adolecense had a lot of csp shit after got married we had some hauntings at our apt in NV 1st time wife heard some shit in kitchen and said something evil was looking through doorway, I wrote off as bullshit cause I was asleep. but went to check out anyway. for some reason sink was half full water and some demonic looking keychain my brother left was in it. spooked now. drained sink and went back to bedroom. laid down, then decided to read bible. told wife to turn on lights so can read bible. electricity in apt goes out, 1st time that happend in over a year of living there, newer complex. Decided something evil was there, gathered up anything secular and in the name of Jesus let them use it as a vessel. On way out to dumpster, in a archtypical way a bunch of what appeared to be black thugs were scattered thorughout complex in various dark garb. all staring at me. some on different levels on balconies and such that were isolated to various rooms etc. a predominatly white complex, I knew what they were and rushed to dumpster. after that was fine. over a year later, something followed me home from work I figure, but I was having nightmares as fuck, something gaunt and evil right next to my face on the otherside of the window sneering at me. but deep asleep and wife said baby blood curling cries, wouldnt sleep. and said that she saw shit in hall again. so we did the whole exorcise thing again. after that not much, besides when my friend and I dwnld ghost radar, dont, bible rustles its jimmies as well. a demon followed him home from that and ruined his marriage imo just as bad as quigi board those are
>>17186091 Yo shut the fuck up dude. Where can I read more on demons disguising themselves as the ghost of kids? When I was about 13-15 I was either awake and saw this or it was a very realistic dream in my own room there was a a child.. maybe 5-7 years of age wearing an older styled baseball uniform (think 30-40+ years old) standing in the corner of my room like he was in time out. I had a feeling of dread and panic over come me and was frozen in fear until I either went back to sleep or the dream stopped. I'm not religious or believe in spirits necessarily. Wtf does this even mean
>>17186946 No, they looked like people. I believe it was ajust an arcitype they chose. Kinda like how mormons (Im not mormon)at least used to believe that blacks were hybrid demon offspring. I don't believe that either. But it's something they use. My dad has never seen them throughout his life, he believes in God but hes a drunk and a man whore, lives like he doesnt. That might have something ro do with it
The bible states that demons and spirits are all around us, also says that WE are the body of Christ, that WE are the church meaning the people, not the building so yes a spirit/ demon can because the bible says that when we accept christ, the demons that were once in us go around looking for a body to invade, and will look back to where it came out from and if the person allows it it will come back in with 7 more (even more powerful) demons than before. A church building cant be haunted but as long as the Holy Spirit is in you, you got nothing to worry about. Btw Ghosts arent real, only Spirits, Demons, Angels and God, dont believe Ghost Hunters claiming they are ghost, the bible shows us that when someone dies the persons soul either goes to heaven or hell, there is no in between, so dont assume its "the ghost of little debbie", its a spirit.
Probably. No experiences of my own in a church but I've been in plenty after hours and it does feel occupied. Older churches and many catholic churches have arched doorways as it was believed evil spirits perch themselves above doorways and try to drop into people as they enter or exit buildings. Most if not all modern churches now have square doorways.
A lot of evil has gone down in and continues to go down in churches though so I don't believe doorways will make a difference either way.
If you consider the theory that poltergeist is caused by psychological trauma then churches are a lot like hospitals. People are overly emotional in churches, sometimes to a disturbing degree, and a lot of bad things happen or are mentioned there. Although many people think Christians or religious people are "nice" or try to be happy the truth is they are macabre and spooky and have a lot of skeletons in their closets.
