Ouija Board

Nice Comic! But whats your take on Ouija Board?

A Ouija Board, (although often pronounced “wee-gee” and commonly known as a ‘Spirit Board’) is any flat board printed with letters, numbers, and other symbols, to which a planchette or movable indicator points, supposedly answering questions from people. The fingers of the participants are placed on the planchette that then moves about the board to spell out messages.

Ouija Board – The Deception

Satan and his demons can use the Ouija board to give advice, or even to guide a person in a certain direction. This guidance will even seem to be true, good, and helpful. Satan and his demons pretend to be caring. They try to appear as something that appears harmless. The Bible says, “And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve” (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).

Satan and his demons will do this in order to get a person even more deeply involved in spiritist practices. Things like the Ouija board appear to be innocent at first, but soon a person finds themselves addicted to guidance from the spirit world – thereby allowing Satan to control and destroy their life. 1 Peter 5:8 warns us, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” The Ouija Board may be advertised as just as game, and that is exactly what Satan wants us to believe.

Our souls, after our death, leave the earth. They are not allowed to stay here any more. They will have to go to Heaven or Purgatory or Hell. Then what are ghosts, of the dead people? Well, they are the devil himself taking the form of a dead person, making us believe that its really the dead person’s soul. So according to me, all ghosts are the devil himself and there is no such thing as a good ghost.

Ouija Board – The Truth: Are they Evil?

Sadly, many people are deceived into believing that Ouija Boards are just a game. The truth of the matter is that God views channeling, or consulting spirits or the dead, to be a serious sin. Deuteronomy 18:11-12 says that anyone engaged in these practices is “detestable to God.” According Old Testament Law, the Israelite were supposed to stone (execute) anyone who was a medium or a channeler (Leviticus 20:27).

Why does God take such a hard line on things like Ouija Boards – something that many people view as a game? In Isaiah 8:19-20, God says this: “When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? …If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light…” God points out that we need to come to Him for answers. Because God is omniscient and omnipresent He knows everything and He is in control of everything.

Asking charlatans and unknown entities for advice can be worse than fruitless; it can be dangerous. God wants us to trust Him!
