The South Texas Ghost Hunters
What Does The Bible Say About
People think of Religion when
they think of ghosts or spirits, and the first thing that comes to mind is
Satan. Spirits/Ghosts are the work of the devil, and that ghosts are bad... or
many variants to this.
In our 30+ investigations we've
done all over South Texas, we've never met anyone or anything we felt was
"evil" ~ In fact, our findings suggest that most spirits don't mind
wanting to be found. We've encountered several interactive and very friendly
spirits/ghosts who were very glad to see us. We've got the photos and witnesses
to back this up.
But we also can't deny that
there have been some spirits who have physically harmed several of our ghost hunters.
Usually the results are only a scratch or bruise. So that's saying out of every
100 people you meet, you're going to meet 2 thugs or bullies. The remaining 98
of them will not mind seeing you. That's not bad odds for what we do. If what we
do was hurting us more than it was helping us, then we wouldn't do it. But the
very few times we do get hurt, it's probably for a reason...
1.) They are very upset that we
2.) They could feel we're
trespassing on their property or in their home. (this is very common in haunted
houses that used to belong to someone else who died there.)
3.) They are just punks, just
like they were in real life, they still remain behind causing fear and
We know these things and keep
them in mind when ever on an investigation. One of STGHA's Key Rules is RESPECT
the spirits. We've found that this goes a long way in helping us. We talk to
them, let them know what we're doing, and we invite the friendly ones who want
to interact or have their picture taken, to come join us. There's nothing like
asking a spirit to take a group photo with you and have him/her in it.
With this said, We don't have
any evidence that suggests that the spirits or ghosts we encounter have any link
to Satan or evil. No 666 signs, flaming skulls or anything frightening.
Sometimes religious people
get into a heated argument with other ghost hunters & paranormal
investigators because they think that they are trying to debunk or disprove the
Quite the opposite. The Holy
Bible is chocked full of reports of paranormal activity & reports of ghosts
& apparitions. We're talking about people 2000 years ago who's minds weren't
corrupted with science fiction or movies or horror novels. They saw and
experienced things, and they wrote them down in the bible. You can look them up
and see for yourself. In fact, one person most religious people won't argue
against is Jesus Christ.
He himself talks about what a
ghost is and isn't...
In the Bible, under the book of
Luke, Chapter 24, Verses 37-40
37: They were startled and
frightened, thinking they saw a ghost.
38: Jesus said to them ,
"Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?...
39: Look at my hands and
my feet. It is I myself ! Touch me and see; a Ghost
does not have flesh and bones, as you see I
There are other reports in the
bible of disembodied voices, apparitions that appeared and faded away, strange
lights, and other patterns we associate with modern day ghosts. A book that is
centuries old even refers to what a Ghost looks like. Look at the source who's
Jesus is the one who's
acknowledging the existence of ghosts by describing that they don't have flesh
& bones. All over the world, in countless historical documents and texts,
there are reports of ghostly phenomena dating back for hundreds of years of
people seeing apparitions, paranormal activity, and things that cannot be
And is it a coincidence that even
today, we're still getting these same reports and experiencing things we cannot
Thanks to the efforts of ghost
hunters & paranormal investigators world wide, we're now starting to
understand more about ghosts through our research and field investigations. And
thanks to many religious doctrines and books, we also have the support we need
that we're not crazy either.
