daphn8897 you are wrong about one little thing. Is isn't possible to speak with the dead through mediums. Witches, Satan, demons cannot resurrect the dead. Demons are the ones who pretend to tbe the dead. In the case of Saul and the witch of Endor, MikeM, you are wrong in another little thing. In this case, when the witch tried to invoke "Samuel", the Lord caused the real Samuel to appear. That was why the witch screamed in fright. But that's different.

There is evidence it the OT that it is possible to speak with the dead. However, God is VERY clear that we are not to pursue or do so. The prophet Samuel rebuked Saul for calling him from the dead. The other folks are quite correct, in that Satan is the great deceiver - and it is far more likely you'll be speaking to a demonic being rather than the person you're trying to contact. And, A_Catholic... you are funny... had to chuckle at your response.

No way, that is deception, there is a play of words in the Witch of Endor story. (Opinion) Saul was communicating with Demon/devil, not the dead prophet. The dead dont 'hang' around, what you are communicating with is unholy, the devil can take a pleasing shape, like dead relitives to get your attendion.

Communicating with the dead is a BIG NO NO! You will be led astray by demons.
BTW this also covers praying to the dead, thinking that you are getting favor from the Father. The only 'father' that hears these prayers is the father of lies, the devil himself.

And... some dead men wear plaid.... thanks A-Catholic :o)

It's safer to communicate with the dead since they can't get upset with what you tell them :))
---A_Catholic on 5/13/06

Jesus said, "Let the dead bury the dead". So in that instance, if you are a non-believer you can talk to others of like belief. If you mean to dead bodies, you can talk but they won't answer...their spirits sleep. If you get a response then you are being deceived by Satan (seek the scripture & you will see). BUT, this ALL is based on believing the Bible is God's unfailing word.

No! The Bible strictly forbids it with good reason. There are familar spirits which are used by mediums to act like they are the dead but in fact are the henchmen of Satan. Beware they can also attach themselves to you if you dabble in the forbidden. The only one you need to talk to in the Spiritual realm is pray to God in Jesus name ,thats all thats acceptable in God's sight. It's also how the Bible teaches us to communicate with God. Only through Jesus, He is the only intercessor between God and man.

Why would you as a Christian want to communicate with the dead?
---cris on 5/12/06

No. As moderator said you'd be talking with demons. All we need to know is we would see our loved ones again when it's time, not until then.
