    4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
    5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
    6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
    7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
    8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
    9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
    10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:"

Celebrity psychics don’t convince me

First published in Readers' Letters

IS IT just me or are there others out there who find the recent explosion in the number of celebrity psychics alarming?

Every day we see more and more programmes dedicated to these people. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I don’t believe in God or the after-life, I’m saying I don’t believe you can talk to the dead.

I know this type of entertainment can give people comfort. That’s not a bad thing, in fact any help at the time of bereavement can only be a good thing. My problem is, if these so-called psychics really care about the well-being of family and friends who are left behind, why do they charge so much for their services?

These psychics have the ability to fill venues at £25 per head. Multiply that by 2,000 people and you can understand why they do it.

Another thing that puzzles me is the absence of proof. There are no recordings, pictures or film evidence of ghosts or spirits. After all these years you would think there would be some kind of concrete proof.

I have yet to be convinced there is the ability to contact the deceased.

We have all watched these people perform on stage and television and you have to admit, sometimes they miss the mark by the widest of margins.

You can’t pass a bookshop without another new psychic’s book or DVD on sale. These people are making huge amounts of money out of misery.

All I can say is “You can’t take it with you, guys”, and until my grandfather pops up and tells me I’m wrong, I’ll have to reside in the camp of the unbelievers.

CHRIS BROWN, Portchester.
