filename : OUIJA added : July 13, 1988 Christian Information Exchange 714-531-3834 Fountain Valley, CA Sysop : Mike Wallace "P" = PAUSE, SPACEBAR = EXIT 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 "Messages". 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?
