I came across this article today. A possessed bible as reported by the Daily Star. You can see the original here. Take a look at this article and see if it creeps you out too….
The Bible has been listed on the auction site by a man, named only as Fred, who keeps it in an empty room in a church because he is so fearful of the bad luck the book might bring in to his home.
On the post, Fred, from Harrington, Cumbria, writes about how he accepts “no responsibility for any poltergeist activities that this Bible might bring into your dwellings”.
Fred was given the Bible, which is thought to date back to the early 1880s, by his female friend, who inherited the book from her grandparents.
The woman, who has not been named, handed him the book in 2011, claiming she had “had enough” of the ghostly activity she believed it was causing in her home.
Fred said: “There were doors opening, cupboards opening, stomping, someone walking upstairs.”
He said the “final straw” for his friend came when she thought the spirits had pulled her down the stairs by her hair in the middle of the night, leaving her shaken and bruised.
Fred said he “cleansed” his friend’s house after she told him of all the spooky happenings.
“I prayed and sprinkled holy water all around the house and commanded evil spirits to leave,” he said.
Suspecting it was the cause of the ghostly events, he also took the Bible out of the house. And as soon as the book was removed, the haunting stopped.
The leather-bound Bible was left his property in Cumbria for three-and-a-half years while he and his family lived in the US.
He said: “I asked [my friend] again if she wanted the Bible back and she didn’t want anything to do with it, she didn’t want to talk about it.”
When he returned to the UK, Fred, who has a baby, moved the Bible to an empty room in a church, fearful of the bad luck it might bring to him and his family.
He has since put the Bible up for sale and has so far turned down an offer of £50,000, believing the book to be worth more because of its spiritual connections.
He said: “They (spirits) attach to them (objects) if they were in love with the valuable object to them while alive.
“They don’t want anyone anybody near it that possess it.
“They cause things to frighten them or harm them so they keep it up, that’s my understanding.
“I know its valuable not just because of its date because its antique, because its got spirits attached to it. I know people are interested in that sort of thing.”
The sale currently has 16 days left on eBay and can be bought for £120,000.
On the selling page Fred has written: “This book is highly haunted and after getting a couple of psychics examining it, I’ve been told that spirits are attached to this book, therefore I accept no responsibility for any poltergeist activities that this Bible might bring into your dwellings.
“And I’m not to be held accountable to any incidents of the sort.”
