what does the bible say about telepathy?

8 COMMENTS

  1. The closest thing to it it probably the inside information that the prophets of the Bible sometimes had.
    However, nowhere in the Bible is any one encouraged to create telepathy. There are plenty of comments about reading and meditating on God’s word, though.

  2. Nothing as far as I know. I’m sure some radical Christians would probably say it’s satanic considering they have a long track record of demonizing anything they don’t understand.

  3. Within the field of parapsychology, telepathy is considered to be a form of extra-sensory perception (ESP) or anomalous cognition in which information is transferred through Psi. It is often categorized similarly to precognition and clairvoyance. Various experiments have been used to test for telepathic abilities. Among the most well known are the use of Zener cards and the Ganzfeld experiment.

    The bible says that all forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future. Telepathy would include some form of psychic phenomena. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers are against God’s law. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.
    Deut 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. 11Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”.

    • Deut. 18 does not touch on telepathy. Your remark that all forms of divination are to be rejected and satanic…. Where does it say that an extra-sensory perception, knowing that it’s your mom when the phone rings, is a form of divination or satanic?? It is just something we can experience and have no answer for. To qualify this experience as a form of divination is nonsense. And Deut. 18 does not apply. And I love Jesus too.
