James Van Praagh, the renowned medium, psychic, and co-producer of the CBS drama “Ghost Whisperer,” was interviewed on the FOX News Channel recently. He provided a few noteworthy soundbites:
“I see dead people, feel dead people, and hear dead people.”
“I say that Jesus was a medium, because Jesus was able to contact the people in spirit.”
CONTINUEMr. Van Praagh says he uses his unique abilities to be “a conduit of comfort, healing, and most importantly, love” (quoted from his website at http://www.vanpraagh.com/bio.cfm). He also teaches mediumship classes, and helps people contact dead loved ones. While he may indeed be contacting something, it’s not a deceased loved one whom he is reaching, because they are dead. More likely, he’s making contact with a demon (a satanic angel) rather than a dead person, or else he’s got a very lively imagination.
"I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people.”
"A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death. You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads." (NIV)
