"The Living Lord"?

If there is a living God then there must be living Ghosts, Ghouls Goblins, Golems, Faeries - in fact any other supernatural being you can think of.

How many more can you think of and are they all real?

They are legion, and there is no scientific evidence that any of them are real.

They are, of course, real to the people that believe in them; some even convince themselves that they communicate with them, but it's all in their minds.

Would there be a dead God or dead Ghosts, Ghouls etc.

If there is a living state of existence why not a 'dead' state of existence?
Do you really believe things like polterguiest or the unexplainable God belief is anything different to all the above things? The nature of how they exist to humans is different. God there is no record of where or how this belief began. The others all have come  into being through  people saying they have experienced  them . Why do some see Ghost so the claim they exist and others never see anything? The truth I think lies somewhere between the physical feelings of man and the subconscience being.
Just my opinion feel free to enlighten me.

Christians see Jesus or the christian god. Muslims see Allah, etc and atheists see no god. How is it that people only see what they believe in?

Ghosts are usually a number of natural effects to which people attribute a human agency in the form of a dead man.

There was an interesting programme recently about a psychic named Gary Mannion who communicates with Abraham and receives instructions from him on how to cure sick people.

I don't know whether he sincerely believes what he claims, but he certainly seemd to take an amused view of it all.

The fact is that many of the people he has 'cured' are convinced that he genuinely has these powers, just as many people, past and present, believe that Jesus performed such cures.

My own opinion is that some people emanate a kind of warmth or charisma which can have a positive physical effect on certain recipients, leading them to believe that a cure has taken place.

It is possible that Jesus was one such person, and that by word of mouth his cures became exagerated to the point of 'resurrection' in some cases.
