Ok, I am confused. I have never had a ouija board but last night my 10 year old daughter's friends brings one over because her mom said she had to get it out of her house ASAP because it is the work of the devil. What is the big freaking deal about these boards? I told her she can leave it here. I notice that all christans freak out when you say anything about a ouija board.
I think the big get for the Ouija board was The Exorcist. Little Reagen used it and see what she got herself into? Of course, seeing as it's made by Hasbro, I doubt that they have a Shaman or paranormal electrician WiFi-ing all of them to the bowels of Hell. It's simply a thrill game that some fools take way too seriously. Hollywood-style hysteria.
Haha, I think hardcore Christians just don't like to have fun. I remember when I was a kid, my friends and I made one and used it in secret, mainly because my friends parents were all total Jesus freaks. I don't see the big deal either. All it is is a bunch of letters, a piece of plastic, and the asshole in the group who always makes it say creepy things.
Well a few friends and I played with the one my daughters friend left here and it was no big deal to me. It's fun when people are freaking out because they think the dead is talking to them. It was funny as hell. they called me yesterday saying that they were still freaking out and paranoid. lol. I was laughing my ass off.
I don't know exactly what freaked them out so much. To me it's just a board but all these christan freaks think it's this evil board. it trips me out because everyone makes such a big freakin deal about them.
My knowledge and experience leads me to the conclusion that Ouija boards themselves have as much occult power as a pendulum just lying on a table. The missing link in their 'power' is the operator. Ouija boards and pendulums are 'training wheels' that can be used to develop insight into your own internal 'powers' of instinct and guidance on higher levels. They contain only as much 'evil' or 'goodness' as is inherent in the operator. Things that people may be fearing in these objects is their ability (when used properly) to surface the darker side of themselves that they'd rather leave hidden and neglected. So, they call it 'the work of the devil'.
It all falls down to Christians being paranoid to things like that. i can see why the would say it is the work of the devil, but someone should tell them if they ask, maybe their good friend the great J.C might pop round to visit. I personally have only had a few tries at the board. but no success.
it all comes down to misconception from movies and horror/occult books.
