A Word of Caution …………………………………………….INTRODUCTION
I have worked as a church pastor since 1975, now for more than 33 years. I have dealtwith people of all sorts. Also I have dealt with people of other religions besidesChristians. From all quarters, one thing in common I have found is that people all over the world, nomatter towhat religion they are affiliated to,theyhave a common belief in spirits. Have you seen someone with a demon problem? Someday you will bump into soand so, who has spirit problems! It’s a small world we live in, and demon possession ison the rise by the year every*where.
A Common Religious Belief 
Every religion that I have studied believes in spirits. The Hindus, for instance, believe ingood and bad spirits. It is said that Hindus believe in some 300,000 spirits. That is plentiful to count! But that is quite true! We are living in a world filled with spirits!Buddhism is a religion of good works. Nevertheless, there is a pious opinion amongmany Buddhists in Malaysia and Singapore that there are supernatural unexplainableforces – called spirits! Taoists, Confuciansionists and Animists also believe in spirits.Many who believe in the existence of good and bad spirits. People who believe in spiritstreat them with respect so that these spirits will not harm them, but bring good luck totheir families. Sometimes they do some religious services to appease the spirits that areangry at them. According to them, these angry ones can bring untold misfortune andtrouble. In Malaysia and Singapore many people do other home services to invite the
 
good spirits to bring good fortune into their families. It all boils down to one thing – there is a world of spirits! We can’t turn a deaf ear to the reality of their existence!
Confusion About Their Origin
To many, the origin of spirits in the worldareis as mysterious as their existence. Manyreligions teach that theyhad beenwere in existence even before man came to be.Christians, by and large, believe that they came from heaven after they rebelled againstGod there. They were cast out of heaven as a punishment for their rebellion there. Thisearth has become a refuge place for them. Muslims too have a similar version. Hindus believe that spirits have been in existence before mankind came to be. Animists andsimilar religious beliefs tell that spirits are supernatural forces on planet earth. Thesespirits have come from other planets beyond ours and that they cannot be wiped out byman in his power. Their activities and power are beyond our conception.
Are They The Dead Come Alive?
Many religions of the world also teach that man has a spirit component within him andthat after death he lives in a spirit form. They believe that there is a supernatural spiritworld. Some call this
“Fool's Paradise!”
The Hindus and Buddhists, believe that birth isa recycle and the result of reincarnation and that spirits reincarnate in the wombs of expectant mothers. Even Christians by and large, believe that when a man dies, his spiritlives on from one generation to another. Has man a spirit component? If this is true, doyou know your past existence? We must be on the alert, when it comes to knowing whattruth is, and what it is not.
Where Do The Dead Go?
Do you believe that the dead are alive somewhere? What do you call the place? Limbo?Fool’s Paradise? Heaven? Hell? There is a common belief among many that the deadare not dead yet! For example, the Buddhists in Singapore and Malaysiafor instance, believe that their dead ancestors are alive in the spirit world. During the month of Augustevery year, for instance, these spirits are on holiday on planet earth. They roam aroundlooking for food and water, and hence they are termed
“Hungry Ghosts!”
Those who believe in this, often place articles of food and drink at their door s*steps of their houses to invite these angels of mercy. During that month, many hospitals' beds are empty. Manyfear that itwasis a bad time to visit or stay in the hospital during that month becausethese spirits will often want to snatch away the living to the home of the spirits. Many donot want to get married during the month of thehungry ghosts for fear that they will bring ill luck.
“Hantu!” (Ghosts!)
