Ouija, Origin of Evil

This is a bit like doing a review of a movie I haven’t seen.  Actually, I am putting why I am not seeing it “out there” for anyone to take and use, or not.

Many of my readers will know that I am a practising Christian.  Sorcery, necromancy, astral projection, fortune tellers, psychics et al are forbidden to Christians.  Now watching a movie about a subject is not the same as engaging the subject.  I acknowledge that.  I am not judging people for watching it.

This movie is specifically, perhaps, a warning against getting involved in occultic practices. The story line is that in 1965 Los Angeles, a widowed mother and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home. When the youngest daughter is overtaken by the merciless spirit, this small family confronts unthinkable fears to save her.

Exodus 22:18 “You shall not permit a sorceress to live.

Leviticus 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.

Micah 5:12 I will put an end to all witchcraft, and there will be no more fortune-tellers.

    It actually sounds quite interesting, and one that I might try to see if I get the chance. It sounds similar in some ways to the plot of Foucault’s pendulum though I doubt if anyone could make a movie of that.

    The title bothers me, a bit, though, since the Ouija board was simply a commercialisation of a Victorian parlour game, sometimes called “glassy-glassy”. It’s not the origin of evil, but it can certainly be a gateway to evil.

    Once, in my youth, some friends invited me to play “glassy glassy”. I joined them, though I was sceptical, and said so. I was convinced that one of the others was moving the glass around the table. In spite of my scepticism, though I wanted to try it again… and again… and again. The strength of the desire to do something so silly and trivial surprised, and then frightened me. It scared me off ever doing it again. And it struck me at the time that that is the way the devil works, by distracting people with endless trivialities, and getting people obsessed with nonsense,. And the “messages” that allegedly came though the glass were nonsense. But that’s what reinforced the desire to try it again, to see if you did it one more time you might get sense out of it.
