…continuation from Part I..
As Catholics, we acknowledge possessions by the devil aka satan aka syaitan aka iblis aka hantus. Which can be overcome by faith in God. Therefore, in my opinion, if we continue to live and believe in ghosts and lost souls, we will continue to be haunted with them. Because an empty mind is the devil’s playground. And our mind is really a powerful thing when we are looking up to the wrong being.
So, in conclusion:
– Do I believe in ghosts and lost souls?
WTF, of course I do NOT believe.
– But if other believe?
That’s their problem. If they worship ghosts, they get ghosts. Simple as that.
What I cannot understand is why people can believe in ghosts when they can’t see ghosts and yet these people cannot believe in God (and I do not mean it limits to my defination of God as a Christian) when they can see for themselves, the marvels of God worshipping. See the throngs of people flocking to churches, mosques, gurdwaras, etc? Wake up, people. Stop entertaining so many ghosts.
If you wonder why I am very much against this ghosts worshipping, let me tell you why in a gist. One 12 yrs old boy had leapt from his apartment and died because he wanted to be a powerful ghost. Another one, my own relative, a 19yrs old girl from UPM committed suicide and told her parents how to deal with her soul. I.e. where to bury her, what to offer her as food (no vegetarian food etc). It has been more than a year and the parents are still in deep grief, wondering if they have provided enough food, shelter etc.
Now, whenever I ask my sons – Do you believe in ghosts?
Their reply – NO! I believe in God.
P.S : When a person is going towards a new faith, e.g. Buddhism or Christianity, they are bound to be ‘assaulted’ with disturbances and dreams of their departed loved ones crying out to them for food, better grave feng shui etc. This is part of the obstacles a person has to go through in strengtening their faith. I have heard of many of such stories from several people. However, there are also ‘gentler’ encounters with our departed ones which I do believe. More on this next time!
Now, do you believe in ghost?
