         PRACTICING SPIRITISM—AN ACT OF
BETRAYAL

By practicing
spiritism, or demonism, one makes direct contact with wicked spirits. Divination, sorcery, binding with
spells, and inquiring of the dead are some forms of spiritism.

As we well know, Jehovah views spiritism as “something
detestable.”
(Deuteronomy 18:10-12; Revelation 21:8) Since
we too must “abhor what is wicked,” it is unthinkable that we would
ever seek out the company of wicked spirit forces. (Romans 12:9) What
a repulsive act of betrayal against our heavenly Father, Jehovah, that
would be!

However, for the very
reason that dabbling in spiritism is gross treachery against Jehovah,
Satan is bent on getting some of us involved in it. Each time he can
induce a Christian to turn to demonism, Satan scores a grand victory.
Why? Think of this comparison: If a soldier could be persuaded to
desert and betray his army unit and join enemy forces, the enemy
commander would be delighted. He might even parade the traitor as a
trophy, so as to insult that soldier’s former army commander.
Similarly, if a Christian turned to spiritism, he would willingly and
knowingly desert Jehovah and place himself directly under Satan’s
command. Imagine what pleasure it would give Satan to parade that
deserter as a trophy of war! Would any of us want to hand the Devil
such a victory?
Absolutely not! We are not traitors.

 

DEUTERONOMY 18:10 There should not
be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through
the fire, anyone who employs divination, a practicer of magic
or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer,
11 or
one who binds others with a spell or anyone who consults a spirit
medium or a professional foreteller of events or anyone who inquires of
the dead.
12 For everybody doing these
things is something detestable to Jehovah, and on account of these
detestable things Jehovah your God is driving them away from before
you.

 

 

 

REVELATION 21:8 But as for the
cowards and those without faith and those who are disgusting in their
filth and murderers and fornicators and those practicing
spiritism
and idolaters and all the liars, their portion will
be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur. This means the second
death.”
