As a very young child (3 or 4 i think) I was 'choked' by a ghost/evil spirit whatever you want to call it. I was being choked, my parents couldn't figure out what was causing it, neither could a doctor who was called, then my dad all of a sudden said, "begone in the name of Jesus Christ" and it just stopped. That was a bit weird because my dad isn't really that religious, not quite sure why he said it, neither is he. Anyway it later turned out that particular house had been used for occult/devil worship and when they were stripping the walls of paint all kinds of pentagrams and devil worshipping stuff was written on the walls. It also turns out that someone was murdered there as well. Anyway we later got the place exorcised, but we didn't stay their very long. Anyway it was unpleasent for all involved, but I wasn't killed so i guess that doesn't give a definitive answer to your question, sorry.

I asked these questions because I think I have seen and heard ghosts. One instance was when I was throwing rocks at the windows of an old house( dont worry it was a piece of crap anyway, broken windows, animals living inside, dirt, mud everywhere). I had hit some windows with the rocks but when I aimed at the top window something came out and through the rock away. I was with a friend of mine who can back this up. Than another time I woke up and heard two ppl speaking. I couldnt make out the first parts but I know I heard " He's waking up lets get outta here". I sleep with a pillow over my head to drown out the noise of some snoring so I dont know how loud they were talking or whatever. I have evan actually seen tiny balls of white light float slowly around my room. These things either dissapeared in my wall or into my pillow. I have not seen the light in some time though. I even have friends who say theyve seen ghosts. So Im a little scared theyd come to get me or something. That is one of the reasons I started this thread.

First (and I dare say, I don't want to start a controversy over this point - but it is important as a part of this fact here)... For a person to believe in ghosts (for the sake of this thread we will assume all who read it DO)... anyway - To believe in a ghost/spririt/energy form/etc, the person is also 'at very least' NOT a disbeliever of God. There is no reason to believe in the paranormal if there is no believe in spiritual, therefore, a creator of intellegence.
Ok. That established, these engergies aren't allowed to just roam and do as they please. True, God allows things to take place when one is open, willing or foolish, and God allows consequence of ones actions and even the ripple effect of someone elses actions.
God does not permit murder.
Although they have more 'area' to work with and more knowledge and a more intimate way of suggestion and behavior - they are under laws of their own.
Most of them won't even come to us while awake for fear of scaring us. I supose someone could see or hear something, get frightened, run and fall to their death --- but I wouldn't consider that a direct kill.
