Psychic powers are demonic

A couple of days ago I posted about this numnut fundie who believed that practicing yoga could lead to demonic possession of unsuspecting Christians (Will my head spin around during downward dog?). Dave Hunt noted that “you must always have your guru present when you get into this state of consciousness, because you could be taken over by some evil entity.”

Now the author of Yoga and the Body of Christ is taking on the topic of psychic powers and demons.

A Christian author says that Christians have no right to make use of psychic powers. Dave Hunt, who co-leads The Berean Call ministry, says believers should have nothing to do with psychics or their powers. While acknowledging that many psychics are fake and use tricks to deceive clients, Hunt believes some psychics are used by demons to make destructive predictions.

He believes assassin Sirhan Sirhan, for example, had demonic psychic powers and predicted the day that Robert F. Kennedy died. “You have to really be a master at this and have given yourself over to come up with any degree of accuracy,” he says. “Nevertheless, Satan can make predictions of a destructive nature.” And Satan can predict some evil things and “have his people that he is controlling bring them to pass,” explains Hunt, “but he can’t predict any good things.”

Does anyone have strait jackets handy for these folks?
