Bible Q

Do spirits or ghosts roam the earth?

No. When people die it’s the end of their life. They cease to exist and their body turns back to dust (Ecc. 12:7). There is nothing left that could roam the earth. As Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 says:

For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten. {6} Their love and their hate and their envy have already perished, and for ever they have no more share in all that is done under the sun.

Particularly notice the part in italics: dead people on longer have any involvement in the things that happen on the earth.

The only hope for life after death is the resurrection, which will happen when Jesus returns to the earth (see Acts 1:11; 1Thess. 4:16; 1Cor. 15:20-23; Rom. 2:6,16).
