Psychics exist in every culture, religion, race, gender, and age. When it comes to having the “gift,” religious orientation doesn’t influence it all. So, do Christian psychics really exist? A psychic could be Christian, just as much as they could be Jewish, Muslim, or Atheist.
People with psychic abilities rarely claim to have chosen them. On the contrary, most of them were either born with the abilities or experienced a traumatic event that unexpectedly triggered the manifestation of the psychic gifts.
People have tried, through research and experimentation, to develop psychic abilities on their own. However, there are very few confirmed cases of people teaching themselves how to perform supernatural feats of any kind.
Why Many Believe That Christian Psychics Don’t Exist
Most Christians believe that only God, or one of his helpers, can have supernatural powers. Things like foreseeing the future, telepathy, reading another’s energy, and all the Clair senses aren’t gifts just anyone is born with.
They believe that any human claiming to have any psychic powers is either lying or in union with Satan or other evil forces. For them, there is no doubt to the question of whether or not there are Christian psychics. Their answer is a loud and resounding, “No!”
But when pressed to explain the basis behind their belief, very few can give specific or solid reasons. They simply state that “the Bible says that only God can have psychic abilities.” However, they can never pinpoint exactly which passage says this.
The bible is full of rhymes and puzzles, and people shouldn’t take what they read as literal. Times were different back when the bible was written than they are today. Although they are firm in their beliefs, they cannot support those beliefs with written Christian literary facts.
This leads people to believe that they’re just saying what they think Christians are supposed to say. They aren’t studying the bible and coming to their own conclusions.
Is It So Hard To Believe That A Christian Could Have Psychic Abilities?
Another question we should ask ourselves is, “what makes a person a Christian?” Is it simply someone that believes in God and Jesus Christ? Is it someone that believes that Jesus Christ died for our sins, rose from the dead, and took our sins with him? Or is it a person who doesn’t go to church but treats everyone with kindness and respect?
Is a Christian strictly someone who’s been “saved” and has given themself over to Christ? Why should it be impossible for someone who believes these things to also have psychic gifts? And if God didn’t give them these gifts, where did they get them from at birth?
Even men and women “of the cloth,” like preachers, ministers, bishops, and Popes, have taken actions that many would deem “supernatural.” Maybe they haven’t called it a “psychic phenomenon,” but that’s what it is sometimes.
Also, let’s think about prayers for a second. When someone is going through a difficult time, Christians like to ask for prayers, right? Most of us have been there, praying to God or asking anyone who believes to pray for us. What are prayers when you really think about it?
They are a collection of thoughts and energy going out into the universe. We are putting our intentions out into the world for manifestation. This is no different than what psychics do.
Was Jesus A Psychic?
Jesus of Nazareth was an extraordinary human being, regardless of anyone’s belief that he was the direct Son of God. He walked on water, transformed one material item into a completely different one, and could read a person’s thoughts.
He knew that person’s life history and could instantly cure a person’s sickness with a touch. Jesus was even able to bring a person back to life. Are these not psychic and supernatural abilities?
And if we are made in the image of God, why wouldn’t this also include some God-like abilities? The fact of the matter is that no one, no human being at least, can convincingly answer any of these questions.
The Greatest Psychic Ever Known Was A Christian
Many people believe that the most remarkable person deemed to be psychic was Edgar Cayce. A devout Christian his entire life, Edgar Cayce lived from 1877 to 1945. He was a humble man that didn’t like getting a lot of attention for his “gift.” He truly believed it was given to him by God to help his fellow man.
Cayce knew he had to reach beyond his life to change the lives of those around him. This highly revered Christian psychic had a decades-long daily routine. He would lay on his couch, get himself into a trance-like state, and then answer all types of questions that people would ask him.
Although Cayce acknowledged his psychic ability, he was constantly in conflict about being chosen to have his “gift.” He was constantly verbalizing his opinion that all men and women should follow Christhood. He was also a Sunday School teacher for many years.
Do We All Have Psychic Abilities Hidden Inside Of Us?
The human mind, especially over the last 100 years, has accomplished so many remarkable feats. Things like splitting the atom, creating the internet, advancing computer technology, finding cures for many diseases, to name a few.
Many scientists believe that humans have only tapped into a fraction of the brain’s potential despite these advancements. Some say that only 10% of the brain’s capacity gets used. Others disagree and instead believe the number to be closer to 1 percent. Can psychic abilities be hidden somewhere in the brain, waiting to be discovered?
Are psychics, Christians included, born with their supernatural abilities unlocked? The reality is that researchers still don’t know the total capacity and possibilities in the human brain.
Modern Christian Psychics
So can there be Christian psychics in modern times? Of course there can. Christian psychics today have similar views about it as Edgar Cayce did: that psychic abilities were a gift from God that needed to be used to help the lives of those around them.
Christian psychics do not believe that they are God-like or that they are somewhat superior to everyone else. They see their “gift” in the same sense as someone does their skills at art, medicine, or athleticism.
Most are very humbled about being chosen to possess these gifts. A lot more of them are reluctant or afraid to acknowledge the true extent of their abilities. They know how people might view them, especially other Christians like them.
Many times, Christian psychics would choose not to have the gift if they could. They would prefer to live out a “normal” life like everyone else instead.
Can Christian Psychics Be Trusted?
A person’s religion shouldn’t have anything to do with whether or not they are trustworthy. Every human being is unique, and being a Christian shouldn’t mean anything. Is it possible for a Christian psychic to be deceptive? Sure.
However, it is just as likely for a Christian banker, Christian teacher, Christian doctor, or other Christian professionals to be dishonest. People, as a whole, are honest and compassionate who only want to see the good in others. This holds true for Christian psychics as well as anyone else.
Should A Person Go See A Christian Psychic?
For the most part, a person who wants to see a psychic should choose one based on their talents and experience, regardless of the psychics’ religious preference. That said, many Christians may feel more comfortable seeing a Christian psychic because there will already be that common ground between them.
If a person is a Christian, they will have the same love of Christ as another Christian of a different calling or occupation. Christian psychics don’t claim to be Christ. Most psychics tend to be overwhelmingly humble, including the most well-known Christian psychic, Edgar Cayce.
Anyone interested in seeing a Christian psychic shouldn’t let the fact that the psychic is Christian determine if they should seek their guidance. Christians may discover that the psychic being Christian helped make the entire experience more comforting and moving.
Psychics come from all walks of life, including those that follow Christ. People considering using a psychic should spend more time researching the benefits others have experienced from them. They should also see how others who have consulted the psychic felt about them.
Learning how much they’ve helped other clients is more important. These things hold more weight than the psychic’s religious beliefs.
