Why are some people scared of ghosts?

I wonder why are some people scared of ghosts...well, i would say i am not scared of ghosts...Ghosts are believed to be the spirits of dead people, when they appear, they are said to appear in bodily likeness to living persons and often haunt their former habitats...some believe that ghosts are the souls of the deceased, demons or spirits... I don't really believe that there's a ghost...although, i do believe that there's an HOLY GHOST...according in the BIBLE, 1John 5:8 "And there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the HOLY GHOST: and these three agree in one." But talking about ordinary ghost like the appearance of a man, it's another story and i would probably never believe it...well, i just think that it's just an evil spirit forming or disguising to be the ghost of a dead person just to deceive people and make them feel really scared...my friends would wonder at me because i am not really scared going to dark rooms all by myself... The truth is, there's really no ghost, according in the BIBLE, Job 7:9-10 "As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more. He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him anymore." and in Ecclesiastes 9:5,6 "For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is under the sun." So there's nothing to worry, nothing to fear because there's no such thing as a ghost of a dead person, it's just an evil spirit that likes to deceive people...i haven't seen a ghost yet but i don't wanna be afraid or frightened by it...i do trust in GOD, because according in Matthew 10:28 "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear HIM which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Do you still believe in ghost and feel afraid with it? Why would some people get scared of ghosts?

I guess from the comfort of your own cozy home it's not as easy to believe in evil ghosts but I have been in a castle in Wales where some bad things have happened in the distant past and I'll tell you, it has a dungeon you wouldn't want to spend a night in, ghosts or no ghost in that place reality becomes well distorted so anything's possible.

Hi angeljenn, You mentioned at least some people but in my opinion it is many people who are scared of ghosts including me. Whatever trust we possess in god, when the word 'Ghost' is struck many will get scared. It is because no one whould have experienced a living with a ghost. The books, the movies and other stories are all shown ghost as an evil spirit.Naturally when the word ghost comes, it will scare us. May be for self prestige some people may say that they don't have fear of a ghost, but in general it is a fearful word. Good Luck.

hello there to U...thanks for sharing your wonderful response to my discussion...i do respect your views and opinions regarding about ghosts...maybe you're right, but it's really true, ever since i was a kid, i never get scared being alone in a dark room, haunted house, or even dark places...even if someone would even mentioned the word 'ghost.' but i do agree that in general, it is a fearful word, because lots of people get really scared of it...have a blessed day ahead of U...may GOD BLESS U & UR family always!!!
