Though I can’t claim to know if this story is true or not, we do know the bible warns about seeking to communicate with the dead, ‘familiar spirits’, or the spirit world in general. God would not warn against it, if there was no danger in doing so.
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD… (Deuteronomy 18)
‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.’ (Leviticus 19)
Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance, and did not inquire of the LORD. So the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse. (1 Chronicles 10)
As satan can masquerade as an ‘angel of light’ it stands to reason demons can also. When dabbling in such practices as is mentioned in this news article, it is practicing witchcraft, plain and simple, and we are flinging the door wide-open to demons and inviting deception into our lives.
The Word lists witchcraft as an ‘act (or work) of the flesh’ which if practiced, will prohibit us from inheriting the Kingdom of God, – “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God”

Three American friends have been taken to hospital after reportedly becoming ‘possessed’ by evil spirits while playing with a Ouija board.
Alexandra Huerta, 22, was playing the game with her brother Sergio, 23, and 18-year-old cousin Fernando Cuevas at a house in the village of San Juan Tlacotenco in south-west Mexico.
But minutes into it, she apparently started ‘growling’ and thrashing around in a ‘trance-like’ state.
‘They had involuntary movements and it was difficult to transfer them to the nearest hospital because they were so erratic.
‘It appeared as if they were in a trance-like state, apparently after playing with the Ouija board. They spoke of feeling numbness, double vision, blindness, deafness, hallucinations, muscle spasm and difficulty swallowing.’
He added that whether the trio were really possessed, or had simply convinced themselves that they were, was not for doctors to comment on.
