About Ghost By religion


The Hebrew Torah and the Bible contain a few references to ghost, associating spiritism with forbidden occult activities The most notable reference is in the First Book of Samuel, in which a disguised King Saul has the Witch of Endor summon the spirit/ghost of Samuel. In the New TestamentJesus has to persuade the Disciples that He is not a ghost following the resurrectionLuke 24:37–39 (some versions of the Bible, such as the KJV and NKJV, use the term "spirit"). Similarly, Jesus' followers at first believe Him to be a ghost (spirit) when they see him walking on water.
Most of the Christian Church considers ghosts as beings who while tied to earth, no longer live on the material plane.Some Christian denominations teach that ghosts are beings who linger in an interim state before continuing their journey to heaven. On occasion, God would allow the souls in this state to return to earth to warn the living of the need for repentanceJews and Christians are taught that it is sinful to attempt to conjure or control spirits in accordance with Deuteronomy XVIII: 9–12
Some ghosts are actually said to be demons in disguise who the Church teaches, in accordance with I Timothy 4:1, that they "come to deceive people and draw them away from God and into bondage." As a result, attempts to contact the dead may lead to unwanted contact with a demon or an unclean spirit, as was said to occur in the case of Robbie Mannheim, a fourteen-year-old Maryland youth. The Seventh-Day Adventist view is that a "soul" is not equivalent to "spirit" or "ghost" (depending on the Bible version), and that save for the Holy Spirit, all spirits/ghosts are demons in disguise.
The Talmud tells of a being called a shade שד that is similar to other creatures in that it lives and dies but consists only of a form but lacks matter that forms mass, thus rendering it invisible. Since it has no physical mass it is capable of transporting itself from one end of the world to the other.


According to Islamic teachings, there is no such thing as Ghost Muslims believe that 'Ghosts' are in fact jinns. The Koran discusses spirits known as jinn.


In Buddhism, there are a number of planes of existence a person into which a person can be reborn, one of which is the realm of hungry ghosts.
