Fact a Day: October 20th

The Facts on The Occult (Harvest House, 1991), pp. 11-12

 

Do all men have natural psychic ability or are psychic abilities mediated through spiritistic (demonic) power?

 

A very common occult practice involves the development of psychic abilities. Yet a great deal of confusion exists as to what psychic abilities are. Are they really latent human powers possessed by everyone? Most people who think so refer to the research of J. B. Rhine and modern parapsychology as having “proven” that psychic powers are natural abilities within all people. But this is not so.

We believe that psychic powers are mediated through demonic ability. We think this because of the testimony of occultists themselves; those who claim psychic powers freely confess that apart from their spirit guides (demons who imitate helping spirits), they have no supernatural abilities. Shamans, Satanists, witches, mediums, channelers, psychic healers, and spiritists of every stripe freely concede that apart from their spirit helpers they are powerless to do the things that they do.
