Unseen forces of evil

"...do not be conformed to this world.... Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good." Romans 12:2, 9

"...a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling." Acts 16:16

"The Bible reveals that the unseen world has rulers and majesties and tremendous beings with whom man can get into communication and be possessed by, but God pronounces His curse on the man or woman who dares to communicate with them.

"The good angels are a host and the bad angels are a host. Today's spiritualism is having tremendous vogue; men and women are betting into communication with 'departed spirits' and putting themselves in league with the unseen powers....

"If you have gone as far as telling fortunes by cards, stop. I will tell you why-- the Devil uses these apparently harmless things to create a fearful curiosity in the minds of men and woman, especially young men a and women, and it may bring them into league with the angelic voices that hate God, into league with the principalities and the rulers of this world's darkness.

"Never say, 'What is the harm in it?' Push it to its logical conclusion and ask-- 'Where will this end?" (page 652)
