If it doesn’t mean anything, why am I wasting my time on it? And since when does God ever countenance sin “just for fun?”
Astrology, palm reading, psychics, mediums, “ghost whisperers”—God condemns every one of these things and all their cousins in His word.
There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD. And because of these abominations the LORD your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the LORD your God, for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune-tellers and to diviners. But as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you to do this, Deut 18:10-14. “God has not allowed you to do this.” Isn’t that plain enough? And if it isn’t, do you really want to be lumped in with people who sacrifice their children?
“Do not turn to mediums or necromancers (people who claim to consult the dead}; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the LORD your God, Lev 19:31. It makes you unclean, unfit to serve God.
And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits and unto the wizards, that chirp and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? on behalf of the living should they seek unto the dead? Isa 8:19. It doesn’t even make sense, God tells us.
But it does make sense to Satan. If he can get you to listen to anyone besides God, he has made his first inroad into your heart. And lest anyone say, “These are all Old Testament passages,” let’s remind him of Gal 5:20 where these things are lumped under the heading of sorcery and labelled “a work of the flesh.”
And no, these condemnations are not only to those who actually practice these things as Ezekiel makes crystal clear: And they shall bear their punishment—the punishment of the [false] prophet and the punishment of the inquirer shall be alike--Ezek 14:10. You can’t play around with this stuff and not be considered guilty, even if all you do is ask them a question. Even brand new Christians understood that in Acts 19:18-20, and at great financial loss burned their books of divination. It was obvious to them, babes that they were, that these things were an abomination to God.
So please, stop playing with fire. Stop making excuses. Don’t let yourself be so fascinated that you lose all sense of right and wrong. God will not tolerate a little playing around. To Him it is sin, plain and simple.
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death, Rev 21:8.
