Necromancy Negatory

1 Samuel 28:12 And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul.

Matthew Henry points out the wisdom of the Scriptures which do not give us a description of how the witch called Samuel up from the dead. We Christians should be innocent concerning the deeds of darkness. Necromancy is forbidden in the Scriptures and is a great evil. We should not be curious about these sorts of things. Let the dead be at peace with God and the living be at peace among the living. To seek the departed dead through God's enemies is to seek among the condemned. Let there be no hope of hearing God this way.
