Psychics exist in every culture, religion, race, gender, and age. Regarding having the “gift,” religious orientation doesn’t influence it all. So, do Christian psychics really exist? Psychics of every religion exist, including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Atheist.
However, 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. Some people have tried to develop psychic abilities through research and experimentation, but very few have succeeded.
Why Many Believe That Christian Psychics Don’t Exist
Some Christians believe that only God, or one of his helpers, can have supernatural powers. They know things like foreseeing the future, telepathy, reading another’s energy, and all the Clair senses aren’t gifts everyone is born with. As a result, they believe any human claiming to have psychic powers is lying or in union with Satan or other evil forces.
For them, there is no doubt in the question of whether or not there are Christian psychics. Their answer is loud and resounding- “No!” But few can give specific or solid reasons when pressed to explain the basis behind their belief. 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 contains rhymes and puzzles, and people shouldn’t take what they read as literal. At the time of the Bible’s writing, times were different than they are today. Although they are firm in their beliefs, they cannot support those beliefs with written Christian literary facts. That leads people to believe they’re just saying what they think Christians should say and 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 also to 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. Christians ask for prayers when someone is going through a difficult time, right? Most of us have been there, praying to God or asking anyone who believes to pray for us. What are prayers when you think about it? They are a collection of thoughts and energy going out into the universe. It’s putting our intentions out into the world for manifestation, and that’s 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 God made us in his image, why wouldn’t this include some God-like abilities? The fact 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 Edgar Cayce was the most remarkable person deemed to be psychic. A devout Christian, Edgar Cayce lived from 1877 to 1945. He was humble and didn’t like getting much attention for his “gift.” He truly believed God gave it to him 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 conflicted about being chosen to have his “gift.” He frequently expressed 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 has accomplished many remarkable feats over the last 100 years. We’ve accomplished things like splitting the atom, creating the internet, advancing computer technology, and finding cures for many diseases, to name a few. Many scientists believe that despite these advancements, humans have only tapped into a fraction of the brain’s potential.
Some say that only 10% of the brain’s capacity gets used; others disagree and believe the number is 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 of 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 they are God-like or somewhat superior to everyone else. Instead, they see their “gift” in the same sense as someone who does their skills in art, medicine, or athleticism.
Most are very humbled about being chosen to possess these gifts. Many 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. Christian psychics often choose not to have the gift if they could. They would prefer to live 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; 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, teacher, doctor, or other Christian professionals to be dishonest. People, as a whole, are honest and compassionate and only want to see the good in others, which holds true for Christian psychics and anyone else.
Should A Person Go See A Christian Psychic?
A person who wants to see a psychic should choose one based on their talents and experience, regardless of the psychics’ religious preference. 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, including the most well-known Christian psychic, Edgar Cayce, tend to be overwhelmingly humble. 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 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.
