Psychics and a Tough Economy

Fortune-tellers, tarot card readers, and psychics are reporting an uptick in business during the current economic downturn as people look for guidance, employment advice, and a window into their economic future. In the past, most customers went to psychics for advice on their relationships and love lives, but the questions today revolve more around finding a job and money.

The American Association of Psychics says not only is business booming, but there has been a big interest in employment in the field as well. Classes once taught for a dozen students are now filled with as many as 30 students at a time, the Association said. Being a psychic can be a very lucrative career choice: Psychics with a big following charge up to $200 an hour for a session.

Whenever the Bible mentions any aspect of the world of the occult, it is always condemned (Exodus 22:18; Leviticus 17:7; 19:26-28, 31; 20:6, 27; Deuteronomy 18:9-13; 1 Samuel 28:3, 9; 2 Kings 9:22; 23:24; 2 Chronicles 33:6; Isaiah 8:19; 19:3; Nahum 3:4; Zechariah 13:2; Malachi 3:5; Galatians 5:20; Revelation 9:20-21; 18:23; 21:8; 22:15).

Its condemnation stems from the fact that psychics and other forms of the occult take the place of God. Our trust should be in Him (Psalm 73:28; Hebrews 2:13). It is not for man to know the future, but be content with what we have, confidently expecting the hope of heaven (Romans 5:2, 4; 12:12; Titus 2:13). While psychics may be temporarily gaining in popularity, they are continually an abomination to God and are not to be used or tolerated.
