Shield Investigators - The Scientific Excorcists

There are a lot of competing theories about how to find and study ghosts, but one thing's for sure - you can't really get rid of them.  According to Shield Investigators, that's because you are invoking the most powerful paranormal weapon of all - Jesus Christ.

For no charge, these professing Christians will show up to any supposed haunted location and investigate the scene armed with ghost hunting equipment and spiritual warfare.  Their website says that they do not get involved with seances, tarot cards, but they do use modern technological tricks to document their investigations.  However, simple documentation is not their end goal.

The purpose of their endeavor is to help people deal with spiritual warfare.  They are of the opinion that these things happen because of demonic or angelic forces, and they try to figure out which it is and how they can help.  Counseling and prayer are their tools.  Whereas an average paranormal investigator stops at observation, the Shield Investigators are only getting started.

They are also not afraid of demons.

In paranormal circles, even the non-religious have heard scary stories about demons.  The investigator who will enter any haunted house with bravado will always act with caution where demonic forces are rumored to be.  Again, the Shield Investigators are above average.  Citing their spiritual authority over demons, they march into these situations with confidence. 

Robey said there are different explanations as to why a home or area may become demonically possessed, including generational curses, misuse of a Ouija board and Satanic worship.

"The ghost side of it, that's still up in the air," he said. "There could have been a tragic death causing a spirit to stick around. Either way, we go in and try to figure out what's in the building. We want to know if what's in there is demonic or angelic."

They are the only people I have heard of to actively seek out demonic activity, as most ghost hunters would rather do something else.  Anything else.  Who knew that the bravest paranormal investigators would be in church on Sunday morning?

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Ephesians 6:13-17
