[Cont.] As for the second alternative (that the spirits of the dead are able to contact the living), the Bible contradicts it, as does common sense. Why should Aunt Jane (for example), who was a very ordinary person in life, become so all-knowing on the “other side”? Moreover, the alleged discarnates, as we have seen, unanimously peddle Satan’s lies from the Garden. They may have claimed to be Christians or atheists or just indifferent in life, but after death they have become articulate and convincing spokespersons for Satan. It is more likely that demons are masquerading as discarnates.
