Q&A: Why do mediums/psychics claim their “gift” is from God when God clearly condemns all such activity?

Why do mediums/psychics claim their “gift” is from God when God clearly condemns all such activity?
In the Bible, a false prophet (a prophet not sent from God) was identified if he wasn’t accurate 100% of the time and God said such a prophet should be stoned to death. Today’s psychics/mediums don’t even come close to 100% accuracy and yet so many claim to be doing “God’s work.” I think it’s absurd! What do you think?

NO God didn’t, but the people who wrote and changed the bible did. The bible has been added to. Things were left out and others added. Jesus brought people back from the dead. So, if we can’t talk to the dead, was he wrong Where people wrong for letting the brought back person live?

Thats a good question. I’ve seen parts in the bible about what your referring to. If you ever watched Montel Williams show when it was still on, he used to have world-renowned psychic Sylvia Browne as his guest. I’ve read so many things that weren’t true and not to mention her ex-husband saying she was a fraud.
My belief is, that if GOD wanted anyone to know certain things, he’d let them know…and i do know of someone who knows things that happen before they do. She would never consider herself a psychic…no way- no how! She’s my best friend…i will tell you…she is pretty damn good when it comes to me…she sees things in my life that will happen in the future….it’s kind of weird at times. But she can look at some people and tell them what kind of a person they are and other things about them. At first, i thought she was crazy, hell no! She was serious, i was blown away what she had told me and i just shrugged it off like, that will never happen. She said, “wait and see”. I hate to say it, but it did. How she knows these things, i don’t know. She is a firm believer in GOD and claims he talks to her. I won’t ever call anyone a liar, because i am not that person and i have no idea what they hear, feel, or see.

He that claims to be a prophet, let him speak of his prophesies, write them down and if the prophesy comes true then that person is a prophet.

Has anyone ever received an *accurate* psychic reading over Yahoo Answers?
If so… from who?
Do a tarot for me pleeeaaaase?

Suggestion by Marina
LOL, I haven’t. I was told that my homosexual friend was busy with his girlfriend and that’s why he hasn’t bothered to talk to me. I was also told I would cheat on my husband with him within the next two years. Perhaps there are legit psychics on here, but I have yet to come across one.

I am intuitive, I can catch an immediate impression when I read a question and will articulate it if I can, but I don’t claim to be a psychic. I do read Tarot though and am 100% accurate with my readings.

Have you ever been to a psychic who was really accurate?
I know this get asked a lot. I once payed a Gypsie in Europe who was amazingly accurate about things that have happend over the next few years, except in the critical point of her prediction of my soul-mate, who left me and has since married. Has anyone been amazed my a psychics accuracy.
serpentq: Gypsies do not like to be generalised as Romani. That’s rascist.

I have had loads … too many to count
and so many of them have been very accurate

as someone who does readings , it doesnt stop me being blown away when I recieve them also

Suggestion by Dire Badger
I’ve been amazed at 2D6 (two six-sided dice)’s accuracy in predicting the number I was thinking of….

…. once…. after about twenty tries.

Even frauds and idiots are right sometimes.

Suggestion by Tim
your forgetting that the real source of their power comes from the devil. You have just proved that they are false, some things they have said come true but not all. This is well defined as a test in the Bible.

What Is Going On Here? Anyone Know Of Any Accurate Psychic?

It probably means that you want him to be sitting there pining for you. But the reality of it is, he probably isn’t.

    I don’t believe you, and I have not been to a accurate psychic. I never been to a psychic at all.

    Yes I have – although it became ordinary afterwards. I do readings too and they also seem amazing at the time and ordinary afterwards even though they are accurate. I don’t know why. It just seems to become a normal phenomenon.
    The amazing goes further forwards.

    First of all, gypsy is spelled ‘gypsy’ and it’s generally considered an insult. The proper term would be Rroma or Romani man/woman. Political correctedness aside, yes I have, especially during a time in my life when I doubted the validity of such things and deliberately tried to trick them.

    Prophets are not physics, they are messengers of God. He speaks through them to his people. And I think that mediums/ physics today claim their “gift” is from God because they really do believe they have something. It mystifies them, so they believe it to be divine.

    I personally think Mediums are the tools of Lucifer, other words? he gave them the power, not for mankind, for disaster…

    God never said such a thing… He actually said people in the future will have gifts similar to Jesus if not more amazing…but i forget which verse it is exactly… and its a troublesome gift to master so no one can be 100%

    and the idea that witchcraft and prophecy was a sin was added by King James during the witch hunts during his time…

    Well, there are a lot of false Christians out there too. I will agree that people who use their “psychic” abilities for personal gain are suspicious. However, there are people with psychic powers who actually do good with their gift/talent. To be sure, most of us, have some ability. Some choose to develop it while others would rather repress it. God is the one to decide who receives such gifts, not the Church. So, as long as God is in my life and directing my steps, I don’t care what others may think, as they clearly don’t understand.

    i think that i don’t really care one way or the other..a lot of so called mediums and psychics are indeed false, and if you put your faith 100% in such things you are probably asking for trouble..but i don’t care much for your religion either dear..as i think it too is highly dubious to say the least.

    First not all psychics are mediums who (allegedly) commune with the dead.

    Second some psychics believe their gifts are a form of charismata since Paul mentions gifts of power prophecy and healing etcetcetc.

    Yes some of them may well be false prophets as well as fakes but dont condemn the responsible minority (admittedlyt a very small minority) who do have gifts.

    We don’t want to lose them to either extreme pentecostal charismatic sects or the neopagans?
