Vision Church of Atlanta adds psychic medium to ministerial staff
The Vision Church of Atlanta, Georgia, a progressive congregation, has added a psychic medium who claims to commune with the dead to their staff.

Lakara Foster, who holds a doctorate of ministry from The Interdenominational Theological Center, is now a licensed minister at The Vision Church of Atlanta, Rolling Out reported. She is also the creator and star of the YouTube series “The Gift,” which she argues God told her to do. It follows her life as a medium, minister, and spiritual teacher.

“God told me to do the show. Honestly, I was reluctant at first because I felt very vulnerable and thought I would get a lot of pushback and negative feedback being a minister and a medium. I thought people wouldn’t understand but I knew I still had to do it. I knew I had been called to do it. When I asked God, ‘Why this gift? Why not singing? God said, ‘I promised my people eternal life. How will my people ...

Amen, Chris G P! Great references from Acts. Yes, absolutely, the NT upholds the OT prohibition on such actions and beliefs. A god may have told this woman to intermix her trade but it wasn't The God.

Another thought occurs to me. Didn’t the converted occult practitioners of Ephesus burn all their books and equipment in the book of Acts, and was not a maid slavr who was used as a spiritistic medium by her masters delivered by Paul and Silas, which led to their brief imprisonment by the magistrates of Philippi?

I don’t know whether this Vision Church of Atlanta is a straight down the line liberal Protestant mainline church, or if it is an “Emerging” self-professed “Progressive Evangelical” Church, (I haven’t troubled myself looking up their website).

This is nothing more than demonic deception. The hiss of the serpent is all over it. Has this lady never read anything of what the Bible says about these wicked practices. They are condemned, and the penalty in the OT was death. King Saul, the first king of Israel list his life for this very thing.

The apostles Paul, Peter, James, Jude and John are clear about these practices, and where the practitioners end up, (unless they repent and get right with God).

The church which encourages satanic occult practices is clearly on the wrong path. We see again how Liberalism blinds the gullible ignorant seekers and sin dominates their choices and decisions.

False churches abound nowadays....

Deuter 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee."

1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, [or] that useth divination, [or] an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

Isaiah 8;19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them. 21 And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward. 22 And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and [they shall be] driven to darkness.

Bottom line; don’t speak to familiar spirits; they will be demons.

"When I asked God, ‘Why this gift? Why not singing? God said, ‘I promised my people eternal life. How will my people know that I’ve kept promise if you don’t demonstrate your gift?’” she told Rolling Out.

Foster argues that psychic mediumship should be included among the spiritual gifts of the modern Church because James 1:17 teaches that “every good and perfect gift is from above.”

Such utter delusion. Satan is crafty, subtle, and often creeps in, unaware, and begins to spread his virus, but this isn't subtle or's blatant, and in your face. This "church" warmly accepts this wicked woman, based upon what I quoted above, even going so far as to attribute her powers as gifts from God.

II Thessalonians 2:11,12
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

“He made his children pass through the fire [as a sacrifice] in the Ben-Hinnom Valley. He practiced soothsaying, divination and sorcery; and he appointed mediums and persons who used spirit guides. He did much that was evil from ADONAI ’s perspective, thus provoking him to anger.” 2 Chronicles 33:6‬ ‭

Why was God angry with Mannaseh?

Next thing you know, she'll be saying she visited the apostles and got firsthand information on Easter and all the other controversial subjects.

Well I shan't be paying any attention to her. And if she had stuck to Sola Scriptura instead of mystically getting her orders from "God", she may even have gotten saved.

So I read this snippet to my wife, a very discerning woman. Her comment was "What kind of church is that? Whatever it is, it's just wrong."

Looking back into the OT, there are so many instances of the kinds of syncretism that occurred back in those days. People would claim to worship the Lord, but had their side affections toward other gods.

When the Bible becomes a whatever-you-want-it-to-mean instead of what it plainly says, then rediculous things like this happen. Come out from among them...
