Bringing Back the Dead

King Saul consulted a medium and it worked! Therefore, we should be able to consult mediums, too, right?

Back in the Old Testament we see that King Saul consulted a medium. Samuel appeared to them and spoke to Saul. Was this a normal occurrence for the Israelites? Their king consulted a medium and it worked. Should this be a model for us? Is it OK for a Christian to be consulting mediums? Based on the result of Saul’s meeting with the medium (1 Samuel 28:19), we don’t think it’s a good idea (notwithstanding all the other Scripture references directing God’s people to avoid consulting mediums—Leviticus 19:31; 20:6; Deuteronomy 18:9-14; 2 Kings 21:6; 23:24-25; 2 Chronicles 33:6; Isaiah 8:19).
