I am a Christian. I love Jesus with all my heart. But I have had run-ins and experiences with the paranormal. Too much has happened in my life to brush these events aside. My grandmother had a psychic gift, although she was very religious and considered it a curse until her later years.
I believe that I have inherited her gift, and I thank God for it. I have seen and communicated with ghosts and spirits. I have a photo of my daughter that didn't just fall off the wall one evening--it flew off! I found out the next day that she had been involved in a major fight with her boyfriend that night.
I have also seen a UFO. The image of it is embedded in my brain and I don't care if people scoff. I believe it is ludicrous for us to say that we're the only living beings in the Universe...ya know?
Finally, I have a bit of ESP and so does my daughter; not as strong as my grandmother's, but it is there. I know it has helped us both avoid dangerous situations.
I am living proof that a Christian can believe in all things paranormal--there is too much evidence to dismiss such activities!

Thanks for your honesty. You're not alone. take this claim made by two young LDS men in Flagstaff, Arizona. These healthy youngsters, dressed in characteristic black pants, starched white shirts and ties were walking along a rural road after a successful day of speaking with unsuspecting homeowners about the "Mormon" religion. It was pitch dark. Starlight was the only illumination.
Because of this, the boys lost their way and were soon shivering in the vast desert in their thin clothing. The temperature plunged near freezing and the boys huddled together on the desert floor for warmth.
But just as all hope appeared gone, brilliant lights illuminated their spooned bodies. At first, the boys thought it was a police cruiser. But then they saw that the object was saucer-shaped and hovered twenty feet above them.
A dazzling cone of blue light enveloped them; their minds went blank and when they awoke they were inside the spacecraft being interrogated by thin, but stern-looking UFO aliens.
When asked by the alien interrogators about their religious beliefs, the boys told them about the Church of the Latter-Day Saints. Shockingly, the demeanor of the UFO aliens softened. Incredibly, they asked for some literature!
Fifteen minutes later, the boys were deposited back in the desert. The alien craft vanished without a trace, leaving the youngsters with nothing but their--admittedly--unbelievable tale.
However, to this day, the boys, who are now grown and happily married, believe that they were the first men on Earth to convert UFO aliens to their beloved religion.
