I know it seems unbelievable, but yes, Saul, the King of Israel, becomes so desperate for guidance, that he breaks basic Covenant law through seeking the help of a sorceress, also known as a witch. This event marks the end of Saul’s reign as king, as he would die the next day in battle. How many time do we as New Testament Christians do the exact same thing? We go to a forbidden source to try to find out God’s will??
