Patrick Cooke's The Bible and the Paranormal: What he failed to tell you
by Stephen Yulish PhD

Patrick Cooke was absolutely correct that the Bible is full of examples of
various types of paranormal phenomena. It is also full of incest, murder, rape
and homosexuality. Just because a person has the potential to do these things
doesn't't mean that they should.
The key scripture that Mr.Cooke failed to mention was Deuteronomy 18:10-12
"There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter
pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft,
or one who interprets omens or is a sorceress, or one who casts spells, or a
medium or one who calls up the dead. For whosoever does these things is
detestable to the Lord.
Saul knew this but went to the Witch at Endor anyway and died for it.
"So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the Lord because of
the word of the Lord which he did not keep and also because he asked counsel
of a medium making inquiry of it." 1Chronicles 10:13
Mr.Cooke never told you that you could die as Saul did from pursuing
His discussion of ghosts in the Bible is negated I believe by Hebrews 9:27:
"Once to die and then the judgment." There is no purgatory or sweet sleep or
roaming around earth in a ghostlike body. There is only heaven or hell upon
death (Psalm 139:8). To speak otherwise is not Biblical.
