BEWARE of Psychic Source!
By David J. Stewart | March 2013
“Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain...” —Jeremiah 10:2,3
One of the most evil television commercial programs is “Psychic Source.” Their website is at PsychicSource.com. Their business advertises, “the most respected psychic source for more than 20 years.” They claim to be gifted and professional psychics. Even worse they profess to care about their callers who are charged $1 per minute for first time callers. They're now offering a special introductory offer of 10 minutes for $10 and they toss in 5 minutes for free. They just want to make money. They don't care about suffering people.
On their website, Psychic Source instructs new customers to set up an account and then they can add $15 to $500 to their account. Each time clients call, money is deducted. It makes me sick that they tell people how much they care in the ads upfront, but then state in the mundane fine print barely visible at the bottom of the screen (which only flashes momentarily) that it's only for entertainment. The bottom of their main webpage says...
*New member offer valid for first time customers who have never made a Psychic Source purchase. Limit $30, some exclusions apply. Up to 3 minutes of your first paid psychic reading are free. Free minutes have no cash value and are not available to customers who have previously received a free trial of the service.

The psychics claim repeatedly on their television commercial to genuinely care about people. Yet, the preceding disclaimer on their main webpage says “For entertainment only.” In my opinion as a Christian, it is evil to claim to genuinely care about someone and be able to help someone in exchange for their money (and then you say in the fine print that it's only entertainment). That's like approaching someone whose mother just died and saying:
“I really care about you friend. I can help you. I can give you accurate and expert answers. I have many years of experience helping hurting souls. I want to get to know you. I really care about you. I can give you hope. But please understand that it's just entertainment. I'm just doing this to entertain you to get your money.”
You'd be devastated, offended and hurt. Honestly, I wish such manipulation of people were outlawed. It's a horrible thing to play games with people's feelings. Granted, most people know that it's just for entertainment, but A LOT of people don't. People don't spend their money to call a psychic because they truly believe that it's entertaining. The psychics claim to have a special gift of knowledge and insight into people's lives. That's just plain wrong! No one should legally be allowed to deceive others for personal gain. It's an obvious racket in my opinion.
The TV infomercials claim that psychics have supernatural power, gifts (which they claim have been authenticated). By claiming that their special insight into people's lives has been AUTHENTICATED, they are claiming supernatural abilities. It's all deception!!! They claim to have special powers which have been verified; yet they make a disclaimer that it's just for entertainment. And they're making lots of money by doing it. Such deception should be illegal. Deception has become epidemic in America. Hardly a television commercial flashes by without having a bunch of fine print at the bottom of the screen. That fine print legally protects advertisers from lying.
Shady outfits advertise low prices, but then the fine print tells the truth that you're going to pay much more than you initially had thought. TV infomercials that guarantee you'll lose weight by buying their product, deceive, saying in the fine print that the results are not typical. Deception is a form of lying because it's indirect and shady. Americans are some of the shadiest people on earth, and some of the most honest, depending on the individual. The farther that the pendulum swings one direction, the farther it swings the other. We have some of the best and the worst people in the world living in America.
The Shady Nature Of Fine Print
Unfortunately, some of the most shady people are using television to take advantage of others. Many people will lie, cheat and connive in order to swindle money from others. Most people who are thieves have some sick form of twisting rationalization to justify their evil greed. Anything that misleads people is sinful, evil and wrong. Psychic Source claims the professional ability, gift and power to help people with their problems, while using a disclaimer to say it's just entertainment. Many of the people calling in don't think it's entertainment. The shady natural of advertising with fine print is that the human ears and eyes believe what they hear and see. Since the fine print is so small that you can't see it without walking up close to the television screen, and also because the fine print only appears for a few seconds and then disappears, it is shady advertising. It's amazing that so many unethical and shady things are perfectly legal in the United States, while horrible crimes like abortion is legal.
You can bet that they're making big bucks if they've been in business for 20-years and are likely spending millions-of-dollars to advertise on television. I don't know how much money they're making, but I remember the infamous Miss Cleo many years ago who was making $100,000,000 a year!!! They wouldn't be spending millions of dollars for TV ads if they weren't making a lot more in profits. 1st Timothy 6:10 says that the LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil, and that includes the Psychic Source.
