Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God. 
Leviticus 19:31 (NAV)


A recent Court TV program about police departments that use psychics is a symptom of a growing problem in the United States.  The problem is that this is yet another way where demons may be misleading well-meaning people who are unaware of God's warnings in the Bible about engaging in such activities.  Another related concern is that as the number of police agencies using psychics  increases, it becomes another straw on the camel's back as far as God's patience with us is concerned.  

Our nation is already engaged in many sins against God.  God has made it clear that he will lift his protection from nations who "forget" him.  We are already seeing the lifting of that protection in the form in financial woes, increased terrorism, etc.  He also says he'll restore our nation if we repent of our sins.  If we want to win the war on terrorism, restore our economy, etc., we must not overlook the "God factor" in our approach to a solution, because he's certainly not going to overlook it.  It is up to private citizens and our government agencies to have a "God first" attitude in all that they do including law enforcement.

Many of these psychics are outright frauds.  They have terrible track records and they rarely provide truly useful information.  However, a few of them are sometimes able to give police details of crimes that they (the psychic) could not possibly have known about, and that do prove to be useful to the investigation.  In this particular Court TV program, a psychic is interviewed about some cases she helped police with where she appears to have truly been helpful.  She was able to tell the police information that she could not possibly have known through news media accounts of the crimes.  

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

The producers of this program appear to have gone out of their way to make her appear as if she was highly accurate and authentic.  In spite of these occasional success stories, police officers who engage in these practices are opening themselves up to the possibility of direct demonic contacts.  If they pursue trying to cultivate their own psychic 'powers', they may also be exposing themselves to possible demon possession.   

Some psychics claim that their talents are a sixth sense, something they're doing all on their own using their own minds.  Others claim that they're getting their information from the spiritual world.  The hard truth is that God created us, and His Word, the Bible, doesn't say anything whatsoever about us having those kinds of abilities.  However, the Bible does have a lot to say about demons deceiving us with counterfeit experiences, including ones where apparently "good" things happened.

Test #1: What do they believe about the Bible and God

If the psychic isn't an outright fraud, and they truly are revealing specific information that they couldn't possibly have known on their own, the Bible gives us some tests we can apply to determine if a person who claims to have these kinds of powers is getting them from God, or from Satan and/or other demons.  The Bible does not allow for a third possibility such as a sixth sense.  It also does not allow for the possibility of any neutral ground as far as supporting the truths in the Bible is concerned.  If a psychic tries to claim that their approach is religiously neutral, you can know they are not real Christians, and are therefore to be avoided by this verse:

He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. 
Luke 11:23

[Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 (KJV)

I would encourage any police officer who has used a psychic in the past, or who will consider using them in the future is to ask pointed questions to the psychic about what their religious beliefs are.  It is my belief, based on the psychics I have read about and seen over the years in media reports, that you'll find they're a) not Bible believing practicing Christians and b) most or all will be involved in some kind of occult practices or activities even if they claim to be Christians. Because these psychics lack a Biblical foundation for their beliefs, they are sitting ducks for all kinds of demonic trickery.  So are the police officers who utilize their services, especially those who go on to try to discover and cultivate their own alleged psychic powers.  This link has a good summary of the Bible verses that tell us how to "test the spirit" of a psychic or anyone else for that matter:


Test #2: Are they 100% accurate

A second test that can be applied is whether or not they are virtually 100% accurate.  God does not make mistakes.  If He has given this kind of power to someone, they will never be wrong about even the slightest detail of what they're reporting.  Consider this Bible verse as evidence of this.  It's talking about those who predict the future, but the same principals apply to any spiritual gift from God because God does not make mistakes:

And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?  When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that [is] the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, [but] the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Deuteronomy 18:21-22
