When a "spirit" repeated the message in the next seance, virtually everyone dismissed it as a fraud. In recent years, the most well-publicized spiritualist has been Bishop James Pike, a liberal theologian who, distraught over the death of his son, sought to communicate with him through a medium. He was convinced that he contacted the spirit of his son, as well as the spirits of others, including Paul Tillich, a liberal theologian whom Pike revered. Pike's obsession to communicate with the dead led to deep involvement with spiritualism.
Scientists and observers have testified to manifestations that could not be explained logically. Bishop Pike described some incredible demonstrations of supernatural power witnessed by many, including skeptics, all of whom testified to the accuracy of his account. Supernatural forces are at work in spiritualism. But they are demonic powers, not the spirits of the dead. THE BIBLE AND NECROMANCY The Bible leaves no question about God's view of necromancy. Moses' law ranked spiritualism with the grossest forms of idolatry, including human sacrifices: When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
Most of those who come to me seeking deliverance from curses are intelligent, influential, well-educated people who suffer incredible burdens. Consider these typical accounts: My friend Arlindo Barbosa de Olivera, who is now a minister of the gospel but once was a powerful witch doctor in South America, had the supernatural ability to put people under curses, rendering them incapable of moving, making them ill, or causing some specific calamity to befall them. A Midwestern family, following a conflict with a neighbor who pronounced a curse on them, said that their house burned to the ground, their automobile was destroyed in an accident, and two unexpected deaths occurred in the family—all in the space of two months.
