New Age Witchcraft

New Age holds the belief that the ultimate reality is energy.  Energy is composed of molecules in vibration.  In the physical realm we normally experience, molecules vibrate at a slow, but constant speed.  This makes everything appear solid and dense.  In the spiritual realm; however, James Van Praagh claims that these molecules vibrate at a much higher rate.  Mr. Praagh states that he can feel these vibrations and energies around him as they shift and change.  Praagh professes to be a medium with the gift of clairsentience, i.e., he can sense the presence of spirits that are nearby.  He also claims to be able to communicate strong feelings and emotions from spirits to the sitter (victim).  Praagh also claims to be clairvoyant, i.e., able to see things, events, and spirits which others can't see.

I've been watching The 700 Club lately, analyzing it, and I see Satan at work.  I see them as borderline psychics, who exploit Christianity to make money and con people.  On the show, Gordon Robertson and Terry Meeuwsen regularly join hands in a prayer segment, which is then followed by a psychic type reading, where they specify details of who is being healed in TV land.  It's creepy!  Are The 700 Club hosts, Pat Robertson, Gordon Robertson and Terry Meeuwsen, psychics?  On a recent show, Gordon and Terry prayed while holding hands, and then claimed that the following healings had taken place as a result of their prayers on TV ...

Someone with an "abscessed right tooth," has just now been healed.

Someone with "twisted intestines" has just been healed.

Someone paralyzed on the right side, particularly the right side of the face, has just been healed.

A man with a plate in his skull is having continual problems, and the doctors just don't know what to do.  Terry said she saw the bone reforming around the plate and the man's pain was gone, he was now healed.

These are the crazy and absurd claims of these so-called "Christians."  As I listened to their bizarre claims, I wrote them down, as listed above.  How can they claim to see such healings?  Folks, this is CLAIRVOYANCE (i.e., Apparent power to perceive things that are not present to the senses), and is exactly what the Satanic psychics do!!!  How in the world would Gordon Robertson and Terry Meeuwsen know who is being healed?  How can you see someone's bone reforming inside their head?  The Word of God never teaches any such demonic practice.  I dare you to show me from the Bible, where God said he would give us some mystical power of being able to see or know what is going on in someone else's body.  It is extremely dangerous to dabble in familiar spirits.  The hosts of The 700 Club are leading the public to believe that they have some special power with God, the ability to see who is being healed.  They do not!  It is a psychological scam to seduce suffering people into giving The 700 Club more money.  And it works!  The Christians Broadcasting Network (CBN) took in $160,000,000 in 2005 alone!

Clairvoyance is of the Devil, whether it is being performed by James Van Praagh or The 700 Club.  None of the Apostles in the Bible had such powers.  Only God is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient.  Nowhere in the Scriptures are we ever directed to seek or expect clairvoyant experiences.  Clairvoyance is an occult practice, like astral projection or astrology.  This is all New Age witchcraft, seeking spiritual power from sources other than God.  Those who claim to have such powers in the name of God are liars.  These are children of the Devil, Modernists who appear to be Christians, but are not.  Remember, even Adolf Hitler claimed to be a Christian...

James Van Praagh quotes

"If you're on the path you're meant to be on, everything falls into place; the Universe is telling you that. If you are not on the right path, you will experience roadblocks all along the way, and this is also the Universe telling you to stop, look, and ask if this is where you are supposed to be."

"Love is never static, but always evolving. Love is simultaneously random and ordered, so intangible and yet a part of everything, and when we attempt to limit it or categorize it, we get into trouble."

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us."

"And in the end, its not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."

His very natural, easy-going style would lead you to believe that James Van Praagh is chatting with a friend on the telephone, not communicating messages from the grave. James is a survival evidence medium, meaning that he is able to bridge the gap between two planes of existence, that of the living and that of the dead, by providing evidential proof of life after death via detailed messages. "I'm clairsentient," he explains, "which simply means clear feeling. I feel the emotions and personalities of the deceased. I am also clairvoyant," he adds, clarifying that, "the first is feeling, the second is seeing, very much like Whoopi Goldberg in the movie, Ghost." The true essence of the messages are the feelings behind the words. James is an expert on this subject, since he has been in touch with those feelings most of his adult life. "The spirits communicate by their emotions. No words exist in the English language, or any other for that matter, which can describe the intense sensations." And His two best-selling books are Talking to Heaven (1997) and Reaching to Heaven (1999).

The popularity of his books combined with his celebrity clientele and appearances on Oprah, Larry King and other talk shows have made Van Praagh something of a minor celebrity himself. In 2002, CBS aired a miniseries based on his writings, "Living With the Dead," starring actor Ted Danson. A short-lived TV talk show, "Beyond With James Van Praagh," also debuted that year. In 2005, Van Praagh was Co-Executive Producer for the CBS primetime series "The Ghost Whisperer" starring Jennifer Love Hewitt.
