---Ancestor Worship is a problem in all pagan generations of the past. It is people’s wrong idea that they can talk to the ghosts of their dead relatives.

---Moses when he wrote down God’s rules forbade this idea in Leviticus 19 and 20 and Deuteronomy 18:9-14.

---Saul 378 years later in 1070 AD, from Moses who wrote since Sinai in 1448 BC, first followed Moses exactly to remove all necromancy in Israel but then tour to a foreign country to consult the witch of Endor!

---She was to call up the spirit of Samuel who was already dead.

---But Satan appeared as Samuel and lied to Saul that he will be with him the next day, trying to say that souls do not die, just as Satan told Eve in the Garden of Eden originally! “You shall not die” the snake by Satan told Eve.

---All explained in 1 Samuel 28:3-25.

---Isaiah hundreds of years later was a keen reader of Moses and he wrote the same condemnation for those who consult Ancient Spirits of their Ancestors in Isaiah 8:19-20.

---One has to rather listen to the Law and the Testimony [of the Spirit Who is the Editor of the whole Bible]. Are you? It is about time. Later. No. Now.

---Do not delay. Climb in your car and drive to the big Bible Bookstore and find a nice literal translation in your language of the Bible. Buy it. I do not have money. Borrow. God will give it back to you. He is the Great Bankowner in Heaven.

---In Japan my student came back from Tokyo travelling from Kuroiso in Tochigi prefecture to bring her dead father’s spirit to her house to eat there.

---“So where does he sit at the table?” I asked. “At the head” she said. “And does he eat his food?” I asked. “No” she said with a skew smile.

---“I will take him back tomorrow” she said.

---The habit of Asians is to go to the graves and then throw soju or wine all over the grave.

---I told my Japanese University students, what grave builders need to do in future is to put a pipe from the top down into the coffin into the mouth of the ancestor so that he/she will not jump around to catch the alcohol! They all laughed. They thought it was a ridiculous idea. Ridiculous? Of course.

---When you are invited in future to go to an ancestor grave and all are bowing in Asia to the ancestor dead, don’t. Turn your back to the grave when they bow as a sign of non-participation. Remain standing. Look elsewhere.

---Why? It is biblical to do that.

---Who should we worship? The living God and not the dead. It is wrong to treat the dead as if they are still living. Right? Right.
