Ouija Board QUESTION from JDeason May 27, 1999 I have a question about Ouija boards. I want to know if the can really work. I used one in my house and some strange things happened but I just thought that there was some logical explanation for them. One thing that happened was that my mom said she had heard children laughing in the house but she was home alone and she knew nothing of the Ouija board. So I just wanted to know if the can actually work because I don't really believe in demons.
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius on May 27, 1999 Dear Mr. Deason:
Yes, Ouija boards can actually work sometimes, that is, they can be used to contact demons, or demons to contact you. Ouija boards DO NOT contact dead loved ones. Any such spirit that would identify itself as a dead loved one is actually a demon.
Ouija boards can also have an appearance of working but in actually the phenomena is psychogenically produced.
But be warned, Ouija Boards and other such devices do have the possibility of getting you into contact with demons.
As to whether demons exist. Jesus thought they existed, and in fact Jesus talks more about hell than he does about heaven. The Bible has HUNDREDS of references to the existence of demons.
In addition, and what is quite interesting, is that even atheistic psychiatrists have been known to contact a deliverance counselor or the Church because a client shows symptoms that cannot be explained in any other way other than demonization.
Church approved exorcisms have been well documented.
In addition, people like myself who have worked in this area has personally seen demons and felt their effects.
It is utter delusion and is contrary to all that is taught in the Faith, and contrary to truck loads of phenomenological evidence to suggest that demons do not exist.
One thing is for sure: Even if we don't believe in the devils, the devils surely do believe in us.
C.S Lewis once said:
There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about demons. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. I recommend that you avoid all contact with Ouija Boards adn any and all other occult devices for your own safety.
I also recommend that you talk to God about whether demons exist or not. God believes in demons. He will instruct you.
We will be in prayer for you.
