Does God let people contact the dead?

by Stephen Davey
Someone asking this question is probably thinking about 1 Samuel 28, when King Saul goes in disguse to meet with a medium, and the dead prophet Samuel appears to them.

But the passage makes clear this was not done by the power of the human medium; in fact, we read in the passage that when Samuel does appear, "she cried out with a loud voice" (1 Samuel 28:12). In other words, she was surprised! She didn't think Samuel would appear, because she knew she didn't really have this power; she was faking it. read more
