Are there good and evil spirits in this world?

The Bible gives many examples of good spirits, called “angels” and evil spirits, called “demons” and Christians sometimes experience these things today. The Bible indicates that dead people do not return to the earth as “ghosts” but either go to “the place of the dead” or to “paradise”. God forbids people to worship angels or to try to contact demons or dead people.


One example of angels was in the Chinese city of Taikang in the mid 20th century, when an English woman, was standing for many hours guarding the gate of her foreigners’ compound where many Chinese were hiding from invading Japanese soldiers who entered the city. The soldiers attacked many streets but never came down that street. Years later, she learned that local people had seen her standing at the gate and reported, “two men with wings were standing beside her”.
