Question: “Are ghosts illegal according to scripture?”

Last year a question was typed into my blogs search engine… Of which became the title of this post. Admittedly I’ve lost track of the specific day that this was typed up by that curious individual.

So here is my reply.
‘ghosts’ are a little more than a scary story that people have been talking about for thousands of years.

So there is no ‘legality’ or ‘illegality’ to them. According to the Christian Scriptures there is no such things as ‘ghosts’. Crack open any study Bible and you find nothing taught by Jesus or the Disciples about ghosts, ghost hunting etc.

Perhaps you are curious what so called ‘paranormal investigators’ / ‘ghost hunters’ are occasionally video recording and recording through audio (evp). It is my belief that public or private groups are capturing demonic entities and not human spirits.

Why do I think that?
Jesus never talked about ghosts in the Gospels.
Jesus never dealt with ‘spirits’ (ghosts) in any of the Gospels.
Jesus only dealt with the Demonic / demon possessed on multiple levels. When we look at the Scriptures we find the following in these online examples.

“The Gadarenes (Gerasenes, Gergasenes), because Jesus expelled demons out of the man who lived among the tombs (Matthew 8:34)”

“SWINE » Jesus sends demons into the (Matthew 8:28-32; Mark 5:11-14; Luke 8:32,33)”
“Two men of the Gergesenes (Gadarenes, Gerasenes) (Matthew 8:28-34; Mark 5:2-20)”
“4.The deaf man (Matthew 9:32,33)”
“5.The deaf and blind man (Matthew 12:22; Luke 11:14)”
“6.The daughter of the Syrophoenician woman (Matthew 15:22-29; Mark 7:25-30)”
“7.The epileptic boy (Matthew 17:14-18; Mark 9:17-27; Luke 9:37-42)”
“8.The man in the synagogue (Mark 1:23-26; Luke 4:33-35)”
“9.Mary Magdalene (Mark 16:9; Luke 8:2,3)”
“10.The herd of swine (Matthew 8:30-32)”
“11.Cast out by Jesus (Matthew 4:24;8:16; Mark 3:22; Luke 4:41)”

“Power over, given the disciples (Matthew 10:1; Mark 6:7;16:17)”

“Disciples could not expel (Mark 9:18,28,29)”
“Sceva’s sons exorcise (Acts 19:13-16)”

Sorry but what ever ‘evidence’ ‘professional’ or amateur ghost hunters are capturing are not human spirits but likely demonic entities.
