What’s the fifference between a christian prophet and a psychic/medium?
In church prophets will do very un-organized readings for people and claim that it’s the holy spirit giving him or her the vision or instruction.

Sylvia brown also claims that the holy spirit works through her to giving people readings so whats the difference?
Oops, I mean difference so shut your lip!

They both have track records on par with chance. I think Sylvia Brown’s been investigated while not nearly enough Christian prophets have been.

(ps, still gets me that the LDS leader is called a prophet and he’s elected – I could swear the definition of prophet is that you’re chosen by god)

Suggestion by Will J
christian prophets usually focus on holy magic and healing spells, and gain a +2 bonus to wisdom.

psychics have telekinetic abilites and focus more on hampering their foes with spells like Slow, Confuse and Palmread. They gain a +2 bonus to Intelligence

Do you think that everyone who is a medium or has first hand paranormal experiences wants money?
I keep hearing this from the skeptics “it isn’t real because so and so offered a million dollars to anyone who could prove it”…..I am not a fan of ‘professional mediums/psychics’ but I AM a medium and I have some very good friends who are as well. What the skeptics do not understand is that some of us view our ‘ability’ humbly and we would be AFRAID to use it for personal gain. We were allowed to have these experiences and to be successful in bringing together families and friends with loved ones who have passed….to be able to help people in spirit who come to us asking for our help in bringing closure to some matter (ie murder victims).because at some point we realized that the potential was there and rather than squelching it we said, “I am willing to do whatever I can to help others.” It is not at all ‘easy’ to be involved in this unseen reality because we have so few people who can identify with what we experience each day. Those of us who are ‘regular’ people do it in spite of the ‘down side’ of it….and….we KNOW that it is not our job to try to convince the skeptics regarding what we know to be true…have experienced ourselves. I read someone saying that most people who believe ‘that stuff’ end up having something else wrong with them’. That is asinine. I know many well educated and respectable people who do believe and do interact with spirits. (Trust me when I say that none of us are fans of Sylvia Brown and the like.)

I want to answer the question but I don’t think you asked one??? No, I don’t believe that every one wants money just bc they help ppl.

Suggestion by Algol
Then win a challenge and donate it to your favorite charity. This would go a long way “to do whatever I can to help others”, to quote you.

Suggestion by Christopher
Most mediums are mega rip offs and they do it for money. No offense directed to you in any way. The paranormal team I worked with for my graduation project for high school NEVER uses mediums. They prefer to look into the history of the home.

    Of course I don’t think they all just want money. I met my mom’s friend a while ago and was blown away by the things she told me. She called her mom before talking to me to prove she wasn’t just making it up. She has dreams of the future, and can see and hear spirits. Her mother has the ability, and her kids are now developing it. I know for a fact she was telling the truth, she told me things that not even my own parents knew.

    Even though you said you’re not a fan of Sylvia Browne, a lot of the things she talks about in her books, like Conversations With The Other Side, which I have read, are apparently almost completely accurate. I believe Sylvia does have a gift, but ABUSES it. If she wants to give someone a reading, gathering hundreds of people together (whom of which are in dire need of help and can barely afford admission), should be sat down with and really be given time. It’s highly unlikely you can stand up in a crowd and be given an answer like that.

    But to answer your question, no. My mom’s friend only tells close family and friends. It took her months to approach a co-worker and give her the messages she got from her deceased daughter. But in the end, it helped both the troubled spirit and the mother with regret.

    No, I don’t think that everyone that imagines themselves to be a medium to want money but all you are doing there is pulling out another bulldust excuse about why no one has ever been able to prove they have paranormal abilities.

    You personally may not want one million dollars but I’m sure there are other ‘mediums’ out there who would dearly love to have such a large sum. There is no obligation for you to take or to keep the money, I’m sure there a lot of starving orphans that would be grateful to receive some of that million.

    Aside from the money don’t you think that if someone bothered to prove that they had paranormal abilities it would make a huge difference to improving the credibility of all mediums and psychics? Wouldn’t that be a worthwhile achievement?

    Until you can prove you have the abilities you claim you are not helping anybody all you are doing is making stuff up. Money isn’t the only thing that motivates people, getting attention and feeling special seems to be the reward for a lot of the paranormal crew.

    OK, In the Case of a Prophet, whenever a person claims to be speaking for God (the essence of prophecy) the key is to compare what is said with what the Bible says. If God were to speak through a person today, it would be in 100% complete agreement with what God has already said in the Bible. God does not contradict Himself. 1 John 4:1 instructs us, “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 declares, “Do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good.” So, whether is it a “word from the Lord” or a supposed prophecy, our response should be the same. Compare what is said to what the Word of God says. If it contradicts the Bible, throw it out. If it agrees with the Bible, pray for wisdom and discernment as to how to apply the message (2 Timothy 3:16-17; James 1:5).

    A Psychic/Medium does not nor have I ever seen one who did, Satan pretends to be kind and helpful. He tries to appear as something good. Satan and his demons will give a psychic information about a person in order to get that person hooked into spiritism, something that God forbids. It appears innocent at first, but soon people can find themselves addicted to psychics and unwittingly allow Satan to control and destroy their lives. Peter proclaimed, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). In some cases, the psychics themselves are deceived, not knowing the true source of the information they receive. Whatever the case and wherever the source of the information, nothing connected to spiritism, witchcraft, or astrology is a godly means of discovering information. How does God want us to discern His will for our life? God’s plan is simple, yet powerful and effective: study the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and pray for wisdom (James 1:5).

    The Holy Spirit chooses to reveal and has revealed that which mankind needs to know in order to make choices to obey and love God.

    The prophets did much more than warn of impending danger from the enemies of the LORD, they spoke toward the coming of a savior for all of mankind, Jesus Christ / Yahshua Ha Meshyiach. Modern day prophets of the LORD given to the church also speak warning from the snares laid down by the wicked one, the devil, and speak to encourage all to love and obey the LORD. They seek servanthood toward the LORD, Yahweh.

    Familiar spirits speak to and through witches who have other motivations than giving God glory.
    They seek power and to be their own masters. Some who would call themselves simply “psychics” are sometimes unaware of where they are getting their information and know not to glorify God in all things.

    Christian prophets claim to get their info from God.
    Pychics claim to get their info from other higher powers.

    If a person is a prophet s/he is very much like a go between. Let’s say you do business with someone from an Asian country, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, whatever – this person doesn’t speak English, but you want him to quote you a price for a product etc.

    You need an interpreter. This person’s job is to relate from you (that is not needed in the case of the prophet) to the other person; however, he also needs to inform you of what that Asian tells you verbatim. That is what the prophet does.

    A prophet simply repeats exactly what he hears or what he is told to say – not one word more or less to the subject chosen for the message.

    Not all who claim to be lead by the spirit must be believed, but their words and prophecies must be looked at in the light of the Bible and verified with what previously has been given.

    The true prophet gets his message from God or Christ; the medium gets it from the demon angels.

    1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but examine the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

    Edit: @Joseph
    I would be very wary of people acting as prophets in today’s churches.

    Prophets and psychics are one and the same. What makes them seem more truthful in their readings than those who use tarrot cards are their ability to go by thier hunches, visions, and/or intution independent of objects. This they claim to be Holy Spirit working through them. So there is no difference really.

  8. anancybrown July 31, 2012 at 8:05 pm #

    We do not have the authority to prophesies today. And even in Bible times not every believer had the gift of prophecy.
    The christians today that claim to have that gift are deceived, or lying. Either way, it is not of God and it is not Biblical. The “prophecy” that people perform today isn’t even similar to the way people prophesied in the Bible.

    The gift of prophesy has ceased.

  9. geyamala గేయమాల July 31, 2012 at 7:24 pm #

    strictly speaking there is no difference.

  10. Malachi July 31, 2012 at 6:56 pm #

    Well it may very well be your view for one. Another option might be the “holy spirit” is the defining key. Ultimately, I would think one would actually have to *be* Christian in order to be a “Christian prophet”.

    Me, personally, there is no “holy spirit” talking to me or working through me for that matter. So maybe I’m the diet coke of psychic mediums? Just one calorie…not psychic enough.

    well the fifference is..
