So first you need to know that I did in fact grow up in a Christian household.  I always had been told that witchcraft was wrong and phsycic were stupid.  I am sure at some point my parents followed up with Bible versus, but they just did not stick besides the fact that is was wrong.

In college, I had the opportunity to go with a friend of mine and her mother to go to a physcic fair.  At first, I was a bit hesitant but what was I going to say?  I was at this friends house and her mom wanted to go.  So I went ahead and went.  

 I had a foot reading in which the woman stated that I was “An old soul” and have been on this Earth many times. She also stated that my friend and I would be friends for life (which will end up being true). However, she said that this life was going to be a good one for me.  Apparently, I have had some bad ones in the past… WHO KNEW?!

I went and had a card reading done as well. The woman there said that my Grandma was coming through and she was sorry that I had to see her like that.  (My Great Grandma had just passed away and I along with my parents, had found her dead) I cried.  She than stated that she could see me traveling throughout my adult life.  At the time I was going to become a social worker… so I could not really see that happening. I thought maybe I would become rich and travel and that would be nice.  I left pretty uninspired because nothing really came out of it.

Well fast forward, years later. I do travel all the time and I am and will be friends with this particular friend for life.  This does not mean that going there was a good thing. Here is some scripture to back me up:

Leviticus 19:31 NIV. “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them.”

 Deuteronomy 18:9-12 NIV, “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 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.”

King Saul of Israel sought counsel from a medium called the Witch of Endor. The armies of Israel were about to be attacked by the Philistines. Saul was in rebellion against God and in desperation sought the services of the spiritist. 1 Samuel 28:8 NIV informs us, “Saul disguised himself, putting on other clothes, and at night he and two men went to the woman. ‘Consult a spirit for me,’ he said, ‘and bring up the one for me I name.’ ” Saul then asked the medium to conjure up the spirit of the deceased prophet Samuel, to ask his counsel regarding the Philistines. Verses 13 & 14, NKJV, “And the king said to her, “Do not be afraid. What did you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I saw a spirit ascending out of the earth.” So he said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is covered with a mantle.” And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground and bowed down. ”

Saul should have known better than to consult with a medium, for God had warned in Leviticus 20:6, “I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them. I will cut him off from his people.” The end result of King Saul’s quest was tragic. Shortly after his visit to the witch, the king took his own life following his wounding in battle. Was the spirit conjured up by the medium a genuine agent of God? The answer is in the Bible, 1 Chronicles 10:13-14. “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 enquire of the Lord.” The medium’s spirit was an imposter, for Scripture clearly states that Saul “did not enquire of the Lord.”

Just because a spirit says something and it is true, it does not mean that the spirit is good.  I think we forget a lot that Satan is allowed to tell us the truth as long as he feels the end justifies the means. If it will make you trip up on your walk with the Lord, than he will for sure tell you the truth. 

With shows like Lond Island Medium it is easy to see a great mom who is doing a service for people by telling them about their loved ones. However, this woman is actually pretty sick and does not know it. I do not think she is a bad person, I think she is a lost person who Satan got a hold of early in life so she “never knew of anything different” (concerning her abilities, not her personality).  I do not think that she is actually evil, I think what Satan is doing is making her so likeable that people will not see his work through her (I do not think she knows her abilities come from Satan) .  Because if she did, that would make is scary and Satan is not always one to make things scary.

I don’t know.  This is just something I was thinking about today and decided to post. Just some food for thought and my own personal experience.

The Dennis Prager Show.


The link above is what kids learn in college these days.  Being a college graduate myself, I would say that he is actually right.

My sister , an English major (funny because I cannot spell and have zero grammer abilities) was actually called out in class for being a Christian and she was told by her professor that she would need to change that stance in order to survive in his classroom.  He also told her, that she could no longer use the Bible as a reference in her writing because the book holds no truth. NICE!!!

Oh and when she went to the Head of the Department, she pretty much backed up the professor… it was the first time in my sister’s life that she recieved a C (she was always an all A student).

College for my sister and for myself was a huge learning experience. People ask if I could go back? No. I had fun in college but nothing good came from college. I do not think I learned anything while I was there, but how could I learn if I never believed what they were telling me to be true?

This girl Blake has an awesome dad and she is pretty awesome too!  Her blog is Peace, Love, Profit. She believes in capitalism and is right on!  I heard her dad on the radio, talking to my favorite host Dennis Prager.  He mentioned her blog, I went there, and was thrilled with what I was reading!
