  • And yet didn't Saul go seek the aid of a witch so he could talk to the dead?? Or am I thinking of someone else??

  • Deuteronomy 18:10-12~~"There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
    For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. "

  • Saul wasn't always a Christian... he later became Paul. He used to kill and hurt Christians. he's a great example of God's mercy.

  • Wow, then Jesus is in a whole heap of trouble.


    Matthew 17:1-3
    After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, conversing with him.

    Elijah never died and Moses was likely transfigured.

    KING Saul--you know, the one David comforted with his harp music.  Yes, he did visit the so-called Witch of Endor in order to consult with a dead prophet.  This was AFTER he had driven all the witches OUT of his kingdom and so he had to send his soldiers out to find one.  Interestingly enough, the Witch suffered NO retribution from god for resurrecting the ghost of the prophet--but Saul did!  And Mary Magdalene saw and spoke to the ghost of Jesus after his burial--he said as much when he told her not to try and touch him since he had not ascended to his new body yet.
