'Psychic at Large' EXPOSED!

by David J. Stewart

"Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God." —Leviticus 19:31

       "Psychic at Large" is a reality show about psychic, Char Margolis.  It airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Sci-Fi Channel.  According to WIKIPEDIA.com...

Char Margolis (born 1951) is an American spiritualist who claims to be able to contact or "channel" the souls of the deceased. Her books include Questions from Earth, Answers from Heaven and Life: A Spiritual Intuitive’s Collection of Inspirational Thoughts. She is a frequent guest on Larry King Live.

In a 1999 interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Margolis claimed that no special talent is required to be psychic. She declines to set up pay telephone lines like other psychics, but sells personal telephone psychic readings on her website, for which there is a waiting list. She says she became aware of her perceived abilities at the age of 8, when a figure appeared in her room one night and sprinkled her with twinkling lights. On the November 1, 2000 edition of Live with Regis and Kelly, Margolis declared on the show that host Kelly Ripa was pregnant. Ripa was pregnant but a spokesperson for ABC stated that only a small circle of people, and not Margolis or the public, knew.

Like contemporary James van Praagh and other alleged psychics, Margolis has been often criticized by James Randi and other skeptics of psychic power.

Here is another quote, from a website that recognizes famous psychics.  Notice that she has MILLIONS of viewers...

"Psychic intuitive Char Margolis has amazed TV hosts from Larry King to Regis Philbin--and millions of viewers--with her uncanny ability to make contact with departed spirits. Now she shares her most exciting experiences with live audiences worldwide! Char will teach you how to develop your own psychic abilities. Her inspiring advice can help you to contact a loved one's spirit, or enhance your innate ability to sense danger or protect others. She also provides easy instructions for making life-changing decisions-intuitively-about business, family, health, and love!" -SOURCE

The Word of God condemns such psychic mediums...

"And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul..." -Leviticus 20:6

Char Margolis Teaches New Age Occultism!

On her personal website, Char Margolis states on her "Personal Mission" page...

"My purpose for being on this earth is to help others recognize, develop, and use their God-given intuitive abilities to ease suffering and grow in goodness, love, compassion, and wisdom. My mission is to help take away fear--the fear of death, by proving that we don't die and will see our loved ones again, and the fear of living, by showing how we can tap in to our wisest selves and make our lives much happier and easier. My desire is to help each of us connect to the love that is eternal, that is the reason for our existence.

Awakening to our own intuitive powers is more important than ever, because I believe that humanity is going through a metamorphosis- from a material world to a spiritual one. We're moving into a new age of spiritual awareness, a whole new phase for the human race, a time when we must learn to balance the spiritual and material. I call it the Age of Awareness, because I believe it's a time when we all will have to become aware of the enormous power we possess." -SOURCE

Miss Margolis openly admits to being a New Ager.  She states, "I believe that humanity is going through a metamorphosis- from a material world to a spiritual one."  Can you show me that from the Bible?  No, you cannot!  Psychic, Char Margolis, goes on to state ... "I believe it's a time when we all will have to become aware of the enormous power we possess."  Power we posses?  The Bible teaches the exact opposite.  We read in Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."  The Bible teach that Christ is our strength.  In fact, Jesus plainly stated in John 15:5, "...for without me ye can do nothing."  We read in Hebrews 4:12 concerning the Bible ... "For the word of God is quick, and powerful..."  I don't find anything in the Bible about untapped psychic human powers.  The truth is that mankind is sinful, depraved, and unable to save himself; thus, man desperately needs God.   Furthermore, if what Miss Margolis claims is true, then why haven't the millions of people over the past several thousand years become "AWARE" of their "enormous power"?  Why now, after thousands of years?  Could it be that the world has never been in such a state of apostasy as it is today, and that Satan finally has the ability to deceive the world on a grand scale?  Yes, that is exactly true!  It couldn't be more obvious that the beast system, prophesied of in the Biblical Book of Revelation, is coming to fruition.

In these last days, the Word of God and Christianity are under attack like never before.  The Lord's return surely can't be too far away.  Psychics and occultists are crawling out of the woodwork everywhere.  From John Edward to Sylvia Browne to Char Margolis, Satan is working relentlessly to deceive the masses into believing that there is NO one God, or path to God.  Their doctrine is vague and undefined, appealing to a larger market base.  They exploit the Word of God to deceive the masses into believing they are of God; BUT, they certainly are not.  Char Margolis is of the Devil, claiming the ability (or "gift") to hear from dead spirits.  There is no such gift mentioned in the Bible; BUT, the Bible does forbid us from regarding them which have "familiar spirits."  The entire goal of New Age is to CONDITION the world to receive the antichrist when he appears.  He will be the ultimate psychic, magician, and spiritist.  He will perform signs and miracles (2nd Thessalonians 2:9).  He will be Mr. New Age himself, and the unsaved world, many of whom will falsely claim to be Christian, will follow him as a god.  According to New Age, we all have psychic power, the light, which is god within us.  Instead of recognizing a sovereign individual God; New Age recognizes god as a power, a light, a force that anyone can channel.  New Age is Satanic, the religion of the beast system!  It's a one-world, homogenized religion, which prohibits it's followers from declaring that there is only one way to Heaven.  However, John 14:6 blows new Age to pieces by stating... "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."  There you have it ... it's Jesus or Hell.

Char Margolis is Extremely Deceitful

Char Margolis is extremely dangerous because she gives the impression of being a Christian; BUT, she certainly is not.  As seen on the book cover above, "Questions from Earth, Answers from Heaven," Char Margolis claims to have answers from Heaven.  Char Margolis further states on her "Personal Mission" page...

"Our intuitive sense is literally a channel between this world and the next. It's an energy conduit through which we can connect with loved ones who have died, speak to our guardian angels and spirit guides, and even touch the highest level of universal consciousness and love." -SOURCE

Ms. Margolis speaks lies!  Here's what the Bible has to say about intuition ... Proverb 14:12 states, "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."  Ms. Margolis is blind, and she is leading the blind.  She claims that one's intuition (impressions and instinctive knowing) is an "energy conduit" to connect with the dead.  This is demonic necromancy!  We read in Deuteronomy 18:10-12 ...

"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, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD..."

Char Margolis, the Psychic at Large, is an ABOMINATION unto the Lord God Almighty.  Again we read in God's Word, the Bible...

"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?  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." -Isaiah 8:19,20

Psychic at Large is of the Devil.  Miss Char Margolis has a familiar spirit, as she claims to have connections with THE OTHER SIDE.  A familiar spirit is one who is familiar with demons.  There is absolutely nothing in the Bible which teaches us to seek the assistance of psychic mediums, palm readers, tarots, horoscopes, astrology, etc.  It is all Satanic!  Don't be fooled, Miss Margolis will lead you into Hell.  Regardless of what we think, the Bible forbids anyone from consulting a psychic (Leviticus 19:31).

Char Margolis' False Gospel!

During an interview on the Larry King Live show, in a segment titled, God and Good vs. Evil, which aired on April 22, 2005, Char Margolis stated ...

"MARGOLIS: ... you know, Allah or God or Christ. Whatever, it doesn't matter, if we are all based in love and compassion and truth with one another." -SOURCE

What a lie of Satan!  This is the New Age Gospel, which teaches that there is no one path to God.  John 14:6 plainly teaches that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Heaven!

There is a great difference between Islam and Christianity, they can't both be correct.  Islam teaches in the Koran that Allah has NO Son, Surah 4.171, the Women...

"...believe therefore in Allah and His apostles, and say not, Three. Desist, it is better for you; Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector."

In sharp contrast, the Bible declares that God does have a Son...

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

It does matter Ms. Margolis!  Allah has no Son; BUT, the God of the Bible, does have a Son, Jesus Christ.  Margolis claims that love is all that matters, which is typical New Age mentality.  This New Age doctrine has infiltrated many religions already.  I witnessed to a Roman Catholic man not too long ago.  I asked him if he knew for certain he was going to Heaven.  He responded by saying, "It doesn't matter what you believe as long as your sincere."  Nothing could be further from the truth.  2nd Thessalonians 1:8 couldn't be plainer, "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ."  It does matter, according to the Word of God.  You can be as loving as can be, and as honest as can be with others, and still go to Hell.  How dare Char Margolis, who doesn't believe the Bible, claim to know so much about God, death, and the other side.  She knows nothing!

One Viewer of the Show Describes Some Popular Con Techniques

According to one viewer of the show...

"When I watched this show, I was reminded of a news program I saw about two years ago that exposed TV psychics (people like John Edward and James Van Praagh) for being phony. Some former employees of the psychics came forward and spilled the dirt. What they would do is when people signed up to be studio audience members, they had to give some personal info like their home address and phone number, and people who worked for the "psychics" would find out where these people lived, go to their homes and try to "accidentally" meet them in some way and get more personal info from them. One ruse would be to pretend to be a door-to-door salesperson or someone who was lost in the neighborhood.

Another way the fake psychics would find out info about people in the studio audience would be to plant their employees (incognito) in the audience while everyone is standing in line to get into the studio. The employees would then start small talk with the unsuspecting audience members and find out personal info about them and then secretly tell the "psychic" so the "psychic" would have the info in advance.

When I found out what lengths these fake psychics went to to get personal info in advance on unsuspecting people, I was disgusted to say the least."

In the show, Psychic at Large, Ms. Margolis makes extensive use of names.  In light of the above information, it's so obvious that people's names and other personal information are subtly gathered prior to any psychic readings.  It wouldn't be difficult at all to gather this personal information.  Another trick that I noticed is that Ms. Margolis continually asks people not to divulge any information, lest they make it harder for the psychic.  Psychic medium, John Edward, tells people the same thing.  The real reason is that if the people mention the names, then the psychic has just lost their supposed psychic POWER.  What kind of psychic goes around guessing people's names?  It should be obvious that this is a scam. 

Although the show is aired on the Sci-Fi station, there is nothing fictitious about occultism and New Age.  Ms. Margolis mentions Heaven and prayer in her books, which are not fictitious.  Millions of people are watching Psychic at Large, and no doubt tens-of-millions of dollars in revenue are being generated by the show.  If you stop to seriously think about it ... America is saturated with magicians, psychics, witchcraft, Satanism, and the occult.  Fewer and fewer people believe and obey the Word of God anymore.  Most professed "Christians" are unsaved and bound for Hell, having religion without Christianity.


Instead of paying Char Margolis $500 for a 45-minute phone conversation, why don't you study the Bible and learn the precious promises of God's Word.  Did you know that the Bible contains thousands of promises?   Wouldn't you rather have the assurance of God Almighty concerning your future, than the word of a Satanic psychic who only follows her intuition?  Acts 16:30,31 reads, "And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?  And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..."  Won't you obey the Gospel, by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ?  Romans 10:13 is a promise from God ... "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."  I plead with you not to become a victim of today's New Age false prophets; such as, John Edward, Oprah Winfrey, Char Margolis, Sylvia Browne, and so many others.  Salvation is only found in Jesus Christ, not religion.  Psychics speak of Heaven, love, and spirituality; BUT, they are of Satan.  They don't teach the truths of God's Word, nor do they accept Jesus Christ as the Saviour.

"For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.  For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD." -Jeremiah 29:8
