THE OUIJA BOARD
Is it really a harmless game?
A harmless game? "It's fun to play Ouija Board!" "It scared me!" "It shocked
me with the things it told me!" These are just some of the remarks you hear
when this subject is mentioned.
But what is this fascinating and oft-times frightening game believed by so
many people that they even allow it to control their lives? The
Spiritualists tells us we are contacting the dead, and we are to accept
these messages as coming from our departed Loved ones. Also, they explain
that messages are given to us from "Guides" or "Guardian Angels" from the
Spirit World. The people who have become adept at this game will say some
unseen, intelligent force seems to control their hand and spell these
For the answer to this problem I feel we must turn to the world's greatest
authority - the word of God. Paul, writing in Ephesians 6:12 says "For we
wrestle not against Flesh and Blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places."
One of the major doctrines denounced by the Bible is Demonology, and that is
just what Paul refers to in Ephesians 6:12. Many scriptures refer to these
unseen intelligences. As one who has tampered with influences for almost a
lifetime, I appreciate what Paul meant and I know this to be a fact. Within
these many scriptures the Bible discusses Necromancy (Gr. -Contact with the
Dead). "There shall not be found among you anyone that maketh his son or
daughter to pass through the fire, or that uses divination, or an observer
of times, or an enchanter, or a Witch, or a Charmer, or a consulter with
Familiar spirits, or a Wizard, or a Necromancer." (Deuteronomy 18:10,11).
Space does not permit us to quote the many scriptures we could use against
this unholy fascination.
We see, therefore, that Ouija Boards and all kinds of spiritualism can be
nothing but communion with demons, against scripture, and we must remember
that God passed the Death sentence on all mediums that had familiar spirits
and also upon people consulting with them. It is sternly forbidden by God
as defiling. Why go to the Ouija Board when we can go to the Lord Jesus
Christ? The Bible says, "For there is one God, and one mediator 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 a sign." (Matthew 12:39). Are
you seeking after a sign using the Ouija Board?
