Why does the Bible not warn against using a ghost box, surely if it seeks to communicate with spirits it's as dangerous as a ouija board?

    This part was written when the Israelites were following MOSES (under God' direction) in the desert wilderness. There were these false prophets and oracles in the places they moved through------The people were supposed to be following Moses, and obeying his orders. These "Prophets and oracles claimed to be getting words from the dead and other spirit entities or also "read omens". They would often MISLEAD the people consulting them, So they didn't follow God's and Moses' instructions.------ A serious problem when you are leading a Million or so people through dangerous territory.---So God gave Moses a LAW, NOT to consult or visit these "mystical People". -------Today, we are not traveling through the desert on a critical mission, so this rules are unrelated to our situation. Those rules were situational, to preserve unity and safety during the exodus, and are NOT general Laws like the 10 commandments.---only the protocol to follow on the journey to "the promised land". There were several such rules, if you read about it, designed to keep order and safety on the trip.

      Not so. The rules of God are always the same. People are the same, with greed, arrogance of intellect and of course, constantly think they are not accountable to God or subject in this earth to demonic influence.

    The Bible don't say nuffin about Ouija boards. It used to, but not no more.

    In around 1904, Hasbro bought the patent for the board and started making them en masse. (That's French for lots) The Christians went nuts of course, saying things like "that thar is the day-vill" and trying to get them banned completely. The second that happened, Hasbro noticed that their Ouija sales went through the god dammed roof. They couldn't make 'em fast enough at the time, so they contacted the Vatican and reached an agreement.

    The Bible would be re-written (no biggie, they've done it before) to make no mention of wooden toys of any kind, especially spirit boards, and everyone would be happy. It's been working ever since.

    Source(s): Nothing mentioned in the bible about the use of vibrating sex toys either. Coincidence?

    I know the Bible has conflicting views when it comes to spirit communication. I’m sure you’re not meant to mess with evil spirits, and you should steer clear of them. The Ouija is a powerful tool, and should not be used lightly.

    I had a strong sense a spirit was close to me, and we communicated via the Ouija at first, we no longer use it to communicate. I wouldn’t use it just to shoot the **** with any spirit.

    At one time it did the 11th Commandment. It was removed by Pope Leo XIII in 1892, some say because of pressure from toy manufacturers. #11 Thou shalt not use nor condone the use of spirit boards. Ghost boxes were not mentioned since radios were not invented until 1895 and not in wide use until a few decades later.

    "Ghosts" don't exist at all. The dead are in heaven or hell. And there are devils that will pretend to be whatever will deceive you away from the Bible and into hell. So the warning is there.

    .

    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.

    .

    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

    The ouija board was originally invented as a board game and was not something that was used by psychics and mystics. It sold for like $3.00 and later became a tool used by mystics, psychics and purveyors of seances where its popularity continues to this day. Today, the ouija board is currently owned and produced by Hasbro - a popular toy maker - and can be found in the toy section next to other popular items such as Monopoly and Checkers.

    Here's a simple test: blindfold a person on the ouija and watch as they continuously land the planchette on empty spaces on the board.

    Do the math.

    • I suppose that next you will be denying that they found a hieroglyphic ouija in Tutankhamen's tomb?

    The Bible doesn't warn against hitting your private parts with a metal spoon either. And probably because we are expected to figure some things out for ourselves!

  • I've used Ouija boards before. Nothing happens.

    How is the ouija board dangerous? It is a toy which is why it is sold in toy shops. It does absolutely none of the things claimed for it.

      no time to argue with a naysayer denialist who says black to everyone's white. You trip yourself up repeatedly and are certainly not a worthy opponent
