Now that Halloween is fast approaching, let's see who believes in :

1.  an actual, personal Satan.
2.  ghosts and hauntings
3.  the efficacy of exorcisms
4.  the validity of seances
5. things that go bump in the night (ok, use your  lurid imagination :D)

:)

I believe in #2, I'm  not  so sure about the others!

"We are to be Christ's hands and feet and heart and mind and we cannot do that if we assume God's role of judgment. The judge's job is filled. God alone is judge! Those who would be Saviors of the Church and the people in it are also reminded that the Savior's job has been filled. Jesus Christ filled it once for all. "- Bishop Rodney Michel

Crikey, Dutch, did you spook this thread?

I post once, I get a double; I delete one, they both go.  I re-post once, I get a double. 

Oh, man, now this one's a double, too.  I'm logging off ... to perform an exorcism (you know, the one I don't believe in :-)

1. No
2. Maybe because some people resist transitioning
3. Probably no
4.  Scary - won't go there
5.  Now that the cathouse has been moved away from the house,  fewer things go bump in the night
