Religious teachings have taught Africans to belief that once humans are dead they ceased to live on as their spirits departs leaving only their body on earth, and as such it poses no harm to those that are living.
According to the Bible in Hebrew chapter 9 verse 27, everyone must die once, and after that, be judged by God (Good News Version). Bible teachings says once a person dies, his spirit goes back to God while the body returns to dust.
This teachings had therefore invalidated the reincarnation belief where a person is believe to be reborn, especially in a different body or as a different species.
Notwithstanding these belief, Africans still belief that the dead can indeed cause harm especially to whom may be responsible for such death. The spirits of the dead can be called upon for vengeance.
However, a recent question on social media as to why morticians do knock the door of a mortuary before they go inside the morgue has been generating diverse opinions.
The question was asked by Ekonhoye Daniels on Facebook and people gave stories they have heard or personal experience they have encountered and it was quite scary to read through, see the reactions it generated.
After reading the comments, do you still belief the Bible teachings or the personal experience of people?
