Just out of curiousity. As believers.. why do we call the Holy Spirit a Ghost?

Where did this come from?
I noticed that the King James Version is one of the few bibles that refer to the Spirit of God as a Holy Ghost.
But what I do not understand is why change when the reference to Him in John 4:24
“God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”

Ghost by defination is
1. the soul of a dead person, a disembodied spirit imagined, usually as a vague, shadowy or evanescent form, as wandering among or haunting living persons.
2. a mere shadow or semblance; a trace: He’s a ghost of his former self.
3. a remote possibility: He hasn’t a ghost of a chance.
4. (sometimes initial capital letter) a spiritual being.
5. the principle of life; soul; spirit.

Does this do justice to GOD?

If you have any information regarding the reason behind using the Holy Ghost rather than Holy Spirit in the King James version bible please share.

Ty for looking into it.
In Christ


Myrtles Plantation Haunted Judge Woodruff Suite Paranormal Pacing in Room

More of our video shot at Myrtles Plantation in St, Francisville,LA on Saturday August 28th 2010 from upstairs in our room(the Judge Clark Woodruff suite) that I had my laptop’s web cam shooting the whole time we were there. If you listen closely, around the 30 second mark to the end of this short clip, you can hear pacing on the floor inside of our room. No one was in the room at the time, in fact no one was in that side of the house at all at the time. We were walking around at the time outside by the back of the property around the pond. If you’ve ever been there, you’ll know that the south side of the house(where this room is) is completely separated and locked off from the rest of the rooms as it has its own staircase. No one else has access to it but those staying upstairs in the Judge’s suite(us that night) and the staff who had all left by this time of night(around 1:15 a..m.).Sound definitely travels in the house and your ears can play tricks on you…but these sounds were close by, inside of our room, NOT from outside or across the hall, etc… apologies for the grainy video but the lighting was weak and my netbook’s webcam isn’t that great.


is it possible for ghosts to follow a person from one house to another?

i am 17. my family & i have moved into different houses 3 times..

1st house: nothing paranormal ever happened, not until i was 11 that is. when i was 11 my oldest brother had told me that he was seeing black figures in the house, he said he only saw them up stairs in the family room. i didn’t believe him at first, i thought he was trying to scare me, but later i saw a black figure, and sometimes at night doors randomly slamed shut.

2d house: every morning my mom had to go to work at 7 am, and every morning she made me come down stairs & sit in the living, so i could watch her two puppies. i always either sat on the coach watching TV or played with the dogs. sometimes my parents bedroom door slamed shut, and i always saw a grayish black shadow on the pantry door in the kitchen, it looked like it was running back & forth, though it surely didn’t look like it was getting anywhere. i know for a fact though that there wasn’t ever anyone in the kitchen(like my brother or someone) because most mornings i was home alone, and if i wasnt home by myself, i almost always checked if there was anyone in the kitchen, there wasnt anyone ever there, and every time i walked up & down the stairs(there were 14 steps. i surprisenly actually remember that), i didnt feel safe & i felt like there was something following me, it scared the crap out of me. one day my oldest brother had told me that one night he was up stairs walking in the hall way, and he saw a white face of a girl near the bathroom..

the house that my family & i live in at the moment(we’ve lived in it for a year now), in the mornings sometimes my bedroom door opens. i dont know if its a ghost opening it or what, ive asked my family if they ever open my door, they always say ”no” anyway, whenever im in my bedroom, i feel like im being watched(my room is the only one i feel like that). in day time & night..a couple times ive seen one of my statures of a horse move! i have never been harmed by this ghost or whatever it is, but it scares the living daylights outta me..is it possible for ghosts to follow a person from one house to another? if yes, do i have a ghost following me? and if so, what should i do? by the way, i know this is really long(sorry), but please help me if you can.

thanks for any help :) really appreciate it..
