What is the difference between someone with the power of discernment and a psychic?

I mean, from what I have seen and read, it's pretty much the same thing. Did the name "power of discernment" only come about so people would accept it more or what?

  • One difference is in the source. The Bible speaks of discernment as one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. A psychic's power comes from a different spirit.

  • How can you be so sure Nanny? Just because the bible says so, doesn't mean that's all it is. Have you ever actually spoken to someone with psychic ability? There not all as crazy as movies and t.v. make them look.

  • discernment would be the Holy Spirit or directly from God

    psychic most the time is a fake or false prophet

  • Psychics are very real and their source is from G-d. Of course there are fake ones just like with anything else just in it to make money, but true ones have a spiritual source and use their gift to help others.

  • well the spirit of discernment is pretty much strong intuition upon physical contact. Psychic abilities are various in form, and they can manifest from physical contact, dreams, or premonition.


    where the two sources come from is you! God has nothing to do with either or. In the bible there are stories about psychics that use their abilities for God, but never does it say that the ability comes from God. But it really doesn't matter - the bible isn't the only source of religion, or spiritual belief(s).


    With that being said, the two are only different in manifestation. What an individual decides to do with it is entirely up to him/her.
