Christians denounce Séance board game claiming to ‘communicate with Jesus’

by Heather Preston

A Ouija board style game, claiming to help people “communicate directly with Jesus” is available to buy through online retail giant Amazon.

The “Holy Spirit Board,” features artwork of angels and the crucifixion, and a golden “magic cross” planchette  - used to facilitate the alleged writing of spiritual messages.

Produced by Holy Spirit Games, the game is described as a “Christian Religious Talking Board for Séance with Planchette,” that is “perfect for churches, prayer groups or just getting together with friends.”

A séance is a gathering where people attempt to make contact with spirits or dead people.

Some users have claimed the board “has reignited their faith” helped them gain better clarity on what God is saying to them as they put their hands on the cross planchette. 

Many Christians have been highly sceptical online, raising concerns that the game is demonic, blasphemous and deceiving people into witchcraft.

Commenting on a review on YouTube, one user said: “If you want to hear God speak, read the Bible.”

Amazon reviewer Rachel warned: “This is 100% against scripture!

“God communicates with you through the scriptures of the Holy Bible, not a board off of Amazon. If you are receiving communication using this board, then you are communicating with demonic spirits.”
