What should Christians think of psychics?
“Some psychics have been caught red-handed using fakery (simple magic tricks), fraud (hiring private investigators to research their clients), and even blatant scams (like using fake audience members). Some psychics, however, may be involved in another kind of deception which is even more dangerous. While many psychics have been exposed for faking their supernatural abilities, the Bible indicates that some psychic powers can be attributed to real evil spirits known as demons (Acts 16:16-18). In such cases, psychics may think their spiritual manifestations are harmless or even helpful to their clients. They may be sincere but they are sincerely wrong. This is why the Bible clearly forbids occult practices (Deut. 18:9-13).” ~ James Walker
For more Biblical perspective on the occult watch the following video, Paul’s Psychic Friend. In it James Walker, President of Watchman Fellowship, addresses the spiritual dangers associated with psychics and discusses some of the most prominent modern psychics such as James Van Praagh, Sylvia Browne, and John Edward.
