Is it wrong to try and contact the dead as we see on television?

There are those who claim to be able to communicate with the dead.  This is not something that a child of God (a Christian) should be involved in however. Look what God said to the Israelites as He led them out of captivity in Egypt and into the Promised Land:

" When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there.  Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.  Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.  You must be blameless before the LORD your God."1


1 (Deuteronomy 18:9-13   NIV)
