ghost: the supposed disembodied spirit of a dead person, concieved as appearing to the living as a pale, shadowy apparition
-- Webster's New World College Dictionary
Luke 16:19-31 tells us a story about a rich man and a poor man who die. The Bible only specifies two places that human
souls go, Heaven or Hell. Because of this it has always been tradition that when you die it is believed you go to one of these
two places...but what if a special circumstance, a modern circumstance, could cause a human spirit to remain here? Trapped,
with no way to continue its journey?
Below is an article from The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) that is very interesting. Remember, this website is meant

team believes and/or practices.

So, according to this article, human souls can theoretically be trapped on Earth by compressed electromagnetic fields. This
could explain why ghosts are only mentioned a few times in the Bible, because in Biblical times people did not have microwave
ovens, televisions, or computers, and so the electrical fields, which do occur naturally, were not being collected into small
areas creating "soul catchers", and allowed spirits to freely travel to their destinations.
This is all theory, and as with all theories it could be completely wrong. However, is the chance that it is right worth
taking? When dealing with spiritual activity, always assume the worse-case scenario and seek help. Whether you think it
is your Uncle Sam or not, it is simply not worth the risk to assume nothing is wrong. It is very possible that all "ghosts"
are merely demons pretending to be something they are not to fool you, but there is a lot of evidence to show that human spirits
can remain behind if the right circumstances are met.
