The word occult means “hidden.” Occult practices are forbidden by God. These practices include the ouija board, holding séances, tarot card reading, numerology, palm reading — in other words, dabbling in the magic arts (Gen. 41:8). God’s people are not to participate in sorcery, i.e. witchcraft (Deut. 18:10). No on astrology (Isaiah 47:13), spell casting (Deut. 18:11), consulting with spirits (Deut. 18:11), and spiritism (Deut. 18:11). “The LORD your God has not allowed you to do this.”
(Arianna MacNeill – Boston.com) Whose spirit will be summoned with the help of the what’s being touted as the world’s largest ouija board? Those visiting Salem on Saturday are about to find out.
The colossal wooden board, which can be separated into pieces for easier transportation, was loaded onto a truck to make the trek to Salem, where it will make its spirited debut at 1 p.m. at the Salem Common.
