Is it really a harmless game?

A harmless game? "It's fun to play Ouija Board!" "It scaredme!" "It shocked me with the things it told me!" These are justsome of the remarks you hear when this subject is mentioned.

But what is this fascinating and oft-times frightening gamebelieved by so many people that they even allow it to controltheir lives? The Spiritualists tells us we are contacting thedead, and we are to accept these messages as coming from ourdeparted Loved ones. Also, they explain that messages are givento us from "Guides" or "Guardian Angels" from the Spirit World. The people who have become adept at this game will say someunseen, intelligent force seems to control their hand and spellthese "Messages".

For the answer to this problem I feel we must turn to theworld's greatest authority - the word of God. Paul, writing inEphesians 6:12 says "For we wrestle not against Flesh and Blood,but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers ofthe darkness of this world, against spiritual wickednessin high places."

One of the major doctrines denounced by the Bible isDemonology, and that is just what Paul refers to in Ephesians6:12. Many scriptures refer to these unseen intelligences. Asone who has tampered with influences for almost a lifetime, Iappreciate what Paul meant and I know this to be a fact. Withinthese many scriptures the Bible discusses Necromancy (Gr. -Contact with the Dead). "There shall not be found among youanyone that maketh his son or daughter to pass through the fire,or that uses divination, or an observer of times, or anenchanter, or a Witch, or a Charmer, or a consulter with Familiarspirits, or a Wizard, or a Necromancer." (Deuteronomy 18:10,11).

Space does not permit us to quote the many scriptures we coulduse against this unholy fascination.

We see, therefore, that Ouija Boards and all kinds ofspiritualism can be nothing but communion with demons, againstscripture, and we must remember that God passed the Deathsentence on all mediums that had familiar spirits and also uponpeople consulting with them. It is sternly forbidden by God asdefiling. Why go to the Ouija Board when we can go to the LordJesus Christ? The Bible says, "For there is one God, and onemediator between God and Men, the man Christ Jesus." (1 Timothy 2:5)

To those who are constantly looking for miracles or signs,Jesus says, "An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after asign." (Matthew 12:39). Are you seeking after a sign using theOuija Board?
