Vatican urges communication with the dead - SPIRITUALISM
Editorial | AdventMessenger.com
The Vatican has produced a new prayer card for "Saint" John Paul II. They are being published and translated into every language and are being distributed at large. The Vatican wants the world to pray to the dead. They want you to seek blessings and help from the spirits of the departed.
Instead of seeking the Bible truths that would condemn such activities, the Vatican seeks "illumination" from spiritualism - talking to the dead.
Says the testimony of the Bible: “When they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? To the law and to the testimony. If they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:19, 20.
Yet because men have rejected the clear teaching of the non-immortality of the soul, it is no wonder that they also reject the Bible's prohibition against communicating with the dead. That is what Spiritualism and witchcraft is - communication with dead spirits. Below is the link to the Vatican's official prayer to the dead St. John Paul II.
Official Prayer to St. John Paul II
"The very name of witchcraft is now held in contempt. The claim that men can hold intercourse with evil spirits is regarded as a fable of the Dark Ages. But Spiritualism, which numbers its converts by hundreds of thousands, yea, by millions, [billions] which has made its way into scientific circles, which has invaded churches, and has found favor in legislative bodies, and even in the courts of kings—this mammoth deception is but a revival, in a new disguise, of the witchcraft." The Great Controversy, p. 556.
