Sylvia Browne EXPOSED!
by David J. Stewart
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." —1st John 4:1
Sylvia Browne is NO Christian!
In these last days, Satan is working relentlessly to deceive the masses with every form of occult practice and witchcraft. Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4) and promotes those who serve him. Sylvia Browne is one such individual, who is influencing millions of people for Satan with her damnable heresies and witchcraft. The following heresies are taken directly from her website. The exact link is http://www.sylvia.org/home/christ.cfm...
"Christ lived and died upon this world; he is our Lord and the "Son of God" (as are we all). Novus believes that he brought God's word to mankind, and was martyred for it. We follow the principal teachings of Christ, namely:
Love God with your whole heart. mind. and soul.
Love thy neighbor as thyself.
These above two thoughts form the basis for Christianity, and through them the entirety of heaven is open to you. We agree with Christ when he said (John 14:6):
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through me."
Since Christ equates himself to "the way, the truth, and the life," a logically equivalent statement is:
"No one comes to the Father but through the way, and the truth, and the life."
Hence, if you follow the teachings of Christ then the doors of heaven (the eternal Home) open. Do remember however, Novus feels that Christ's teachings are simply the two statements above. We do not hold that Christ was God, nor that he died for our "sins," nor that he rose from the dead."
Clearly, Sylvia Browne is NO Christian. In the above quote she denies the deity of Christ, denies that Jesus died upon the cross for our sins, and denies that Jesus rose from the dead. The Word of God proclaims that Jesus Christ is God Almighty (John 1:1-3,14; John 10:33; Colossians 2:9; 1st Timothy 3:16; Revelation 1:8 --King James Bible). The Word of God teaches that Jesus Christ arose from the dead (John 19:11-16), and was seen by over 500 people (1st Corinthians 15:4-6). The Word of God clearly states that Jesus came to die upon the cross, shedding His blood for our sins (Luke 1:77; John 3:16; Romans 5:8; 2nd Corinthians 5:21; Colossians 1:14; Revelation 7:14). It is clear that Sylvia Browne is an unbeliever who does NOT believe the Word of God. In fact, 1st John 2:22 calls her an ANTI-Christ and a liar.
From looking at Sylvia's website, you could easily get the impression that she is a Christian if you didn't know any better. On her main page it reads...
"God love you - I do, Sylvia"
Ironically, Sylvia Browne also professes to have a "love for God."
"In April 1986, Sylvia Browne embarked upon the most important chapter of her life. She founded a spiritual organization called Society of Novus Spiritus. This decision was a natural extension of her love for God and for all of humanity." -SOURCE
1st John 3:18 states...
"My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth."
Sylvia Browne loves with her words, but not with the Truth of God's Word. She certainly is NO Christian. When Sylvia Browne speaks of the "spirit," she is speaking of a familiar spirit (a demonic spirit); not, the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus clearly said in John 4:24 that God can ONLY be worshipped in truth. This is why Jesus said that the people in Mark 7:7 were worshipping God in VAIN, because they were following the traditions of men instead of the commandments of God.
Sylvia Browne Redefines God, as do all false prophets!
The following quote is taken from Sylvia Browne's website, Society of Novus Spiritus:
In April 1986, Sylvia Browne embarked upon the most important chapter of her life. She founded a spiritual organization called Society of Novus Spiritus. This decision was a natural extension of her love for God and for all of humanity. Novus is Sylvia's monument to God, a forum to express the joy and love that is God - with no fear, no guilt, no sin, no hell, and no Satan. Through Novus, Sylvia gives the world a means to understand God, Life, and the reason for Being. -SOURCE
What a bunch of Satanic rubbish!!! Sylvia Browne claims that she is working to give the world "a means to understand God..." You've got to be kidding lady? How can you expect to understand God without His Word? You cannot! As with all false religions and Satanic counterfeits of the Truth, Sylvia Browne redefines God by twisting and distorting the Truth of God's Word (Romans 1:25) into meaningless mumbo-jumbo. The following quote is from an article exposing Sylvia Browne:
"In Acts of the Apostles, (16:16-18) we read about how when the Apostle Paul was at Thyatira, he was constantly followed by a slave woman who had the gift of clairvoyance. She earned much money for her masters by giving "readings" and such. This gift immediately disappeared after the Apostle Paul expelled this evil spirit.
Satan has become real good at hiding himself, his works, and his methods. He seeks to only enslave people to follow his lead and to rebel against God. He has to do this diabolical work with a certain amount of secrecy. But he is not adverse to using "sensationalism" such as clairvoyant medium writers John Edwards and Sylvia Browne. Sadly, he may have these people entirely hoodwinked themselves... Is it any surprise that the most "gifted" mediums can work with police and find dead bodies and murder victims? God knows for sure. But, just think for a moment; of course the the demon world knows exactly where these victims of foul play are buried." -SOURCE
Sylvia Browne teaches the damnable lies of New Age, of Yin and Yang, of God being male and female. The following quote is taken from The Society of Novus Spiritus' (founded by Sylvia Browne), from an article titled "God the Female"...SOURCE
"Where the Father God maintains a constant loving force, the Mother God will actively take an interest in helping you and can change things around to make life better.
Anytime we use the word "God," please understand that we imply both the Male and Female Gods. For together They made our world and are the loving Parents of humanity." -
What does the Bible have to say about God's gender? To begin with, Scripture contains almost 170 references to God as the “Father.” By necessity, one cannot be a father unless he is male. If what was meant to be communicated was that God chose to be revealed to man in a female form, then the word “mother” would have occurred in these places, not “father.” In the Old and New Testament both, masculine pronouns are used over and over again in reference to God. Jesus Christ referred to God as the Father several times, and in other cases used masculine pronouns in reference to God. In the Gospels alone, Christ uses the term “Father” in direct reference to God nearly 160 times. Of particular interest is Christ’s statement in John 10:30. He says here, “I and [my] Father are one.” Obviously Jesus Christ came in the form of a human man to die on the cross as payment for the sins of the world, and like God the Father, was revealed to mankind in a male form. Scripture records numerous other instances where Christ utilized masculine nouns and pronouns in reference to God. God is never referred to in the female gender in the Bible! -READ MORE.
Sylvia Browne denies the Word of God...
"Is the Bible the unaltered word of God? No. It simply cannot be, due to the centuries of social, political, language, and geographical changes." -SOURCE
All what Sylvia Browne (the self-professed "psychic") teaches is admittedly NOT based upon the Word of God. Here's another quote from her website revealing the Satanic New Age agenda behind her philosophies...
"Novus Spiritus stands in accord with all of today's religions. We feel that every church has fundamental Truth and we encourage each person to find a means of worship. Perhaps Novus will be yours. In addition, we find many people are joining Novus even though they are happy with their current faith. Our goal is to open each mind to the splendor of God, allowing the intellect to grasp the Divine."
Whoa! What a lie! Miss Browne states that her "Novus Spiritus stands in accord with all of today's religions." That is simply NOT true; false religions perhaps, but not Christ-honoring churches who still abide by the teachings of the Word of God. The Devil is working relentlessly to CONFUSE people, doing everything in his Satanic power to blind people, "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them" (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Please don't be deceived by the lies and occult witchery of Sylvia Browne--she is of the Devil. 2nd Corinthians 11:13,14 state, "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." Satan is a master deceiver and counterfeiter. Satan is so subtle and masterful at his trickery that he has led tens-of-millions of people to believe that New Agers such as John Edward, Sylvia Browne, Oprah Winfrey, Shirley MacLaine, and James Van Praagh are of God. They are NOT of God!!!
Romans 1:25 warns us about unbelievers who, change "...the truth of God into a lie..." This is what the Devil's crowd does! They attempt to corrupt and pervert the Word of God. Of course, they can't corrupt the Word of God, because it is INCORRUPTIBLE, "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever." Let the heathen rage and imagine a vain thing, it makes no difference--God is still on His throne in Heaven!!! All the hordes of Hell cannot change the Truth; BUT, what Satan can do, and is doing, is to blind the masses of humanity into believing a lie. Have you believed a lie?
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved." -2nd Thessalonians 2:9,10
Reincarnation is a lie, nowhere found in the Bible. The Word of God is clear that we only have this one life to live, and then the judgment (Hebrews 9:27). Don't be fooled friend, there are no second chances once your dead (John 8:24).
Here is some more of the insane reasoning which Sylvia Browne dishes out to her spiritual victims...
"Are we to assume that God has no patience with us? Will He be upset if we are not perfect after one life? Would His anger condemn us to a burning hell because tying shoes took a month to learn? We think not, at least not a loving God.
Reincarnation is the most reasonable concept to explain the inequities of life in light of an all loving God. The alternative, a God of hate, is simply not tenable. Reincarnation is accepted in the vast majority of religions. Even the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabala, supports it." -SOURCE
Sylvia Browne is dangerous! She foolishly logics that a God of love would never condemn anyone to Hell for being less than perfect. The truth is that God never sends anyone to Hell, we choose to go there by rejecting the Christ of the Bible as our personal Saviour. Ms. Browne reasons that a loving God would never send anyone to Hell. What Ms. Browne leaves out is the Biblical teachings that God is ALSO a holy God, and a righteous God, and a God of judgment. The entire perspective of Ms. Browne's opinion is from one of self-righteousness--that if we do our best, why would God condemn us to Hell for trying. However, Isaiah 64:6 teaches that even our self-righteousness is as filthy rags in the sight of God. James 2:10 declares that if we break even one of God's laws, then we might as well be guilty of all (because it only takes one sin to condemn us to Hell forever).
The Bible plainly teaches in Ephesians 2:8,9, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Did you read that? Salvation is the "gift of God." Salvation is FREE, if you'll receive it by faith alone in Jesus Christ. Yet, Sylvia Browne would deceitfully lead you to believe that God will understand if you reject Christ as Saviour. 2nd Thessalonians 1:8 blows Ms. Browne's lies right out of the water, "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ." Who are you going to believe, God, or Sylvia Browne? Psalm 118:8 gives us some good advice, "It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man."
Romans 3:10,23 clearly states that we are ALL sinners. Romans 6:23 proclaims the death penalty upon all humanity because of our sins; thus, everyone eventually dies. The Word of God is very clear that God loves mankind, so much, that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to die for our sins (John 3:16). Sylvia Browne denies this Biblical truth. It is because we are sinners that we CANNOT enter into the kingdom of Heaven of our own merit or good will (1st Corinthians 6:9,10). This is why Jesus told His disciples that salvation was IMPOSSIBLE with man (Matthew 19:25,26). Salvation is of God; NOT man. Howbeit, no one is automatically saved! We must be born again (John 3:3). This can only happen when we realize our sinful condition (which Ms. Browne denies), and turn in faith to Jesus as our personal Saviour to forgive our sins (which Ms. Browne also denies). Salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone; NOT in a religion, and not in the demonic doctrines of Sylvia Browne. It's Jesus or Hell, turn or burn!
Sylvia Browne accuses God of being a "God of Hate" for sending Christ-rejecters to Hell. But wait a minute Ms. Browne, the Bible clearly states that ANYONE can be saved (Romans 10:13). "Whosoever" may come (John 3:16). The Word of God promises that all sinners who DIE IN THEIR SINS will burn in the Lake of Fire forever (Revelation 20:11-15). BUT, the Bible also promises eternal life and peace for ANYONE who will place their trust solely in Jesus Christ for salvation (Romans 5:1). So why is God "hateful" for sending someone to Hell, a person who willingly rejects the FREE gift of God (Romans 5:15)? John 10:1 clearly warns those who would try to enter into Heaven without going through the Door (which is Jesus Christ--John 10:9). God calls them "thieves" and "robbers." Who are you Ms. Browne to make such hateful allegations against the God of the universe, when He has lovingly provided a way of escape (a plan of redemption) for all humanity to be saved. Your thinking is demonic Ms. Browne. Yes, God is a loving God; but, He is also a holy God, and God's holiness DEMANDS justice! This is the reason why Jesus needed to come to this sin-cursed world to pay for our sins, because we cannot redeem ourselves! Jesus paid a debt He did not owe, because we owed a debt we could not pay.
God is fair Ms. Browne, He offers the free gift
of eternal life to anyone who will receive it, by faith in Christ alone.
Your rationalization for reincarnation is based upon your disbelief and
rejection of the plain teachings of the Word of God. Salvation is so
simple, "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through
his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in
Christ" (2nd Corinthians 11:3). Sylvia Browne's mind has been
corrupted by Satan, and she wants to corrupt yours as well. Sadly,
millions of people may one day burn in Hell because of her lies and Satanic
teachings. Ms. Browne may not acknowledge Satan's existence (as Wiccan
witches don't either); but that certainly doesn't mean that the Devil doesn't
exist. 1st Peter 5:8 warns us to be alert "...because your adversary
the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."
Satan does exist!
Psychic news: TV Psychic Misses Mark on Miners | January 6th, 2006
Controversial TV psychic Sylvia Browne made a major mistake about the West Virginia miners tragedy on a Tuesday night radio show... She was a guest on George Noory's live syndicated radio show, "Coast to Coast" at around 3 a.m. on Wednesday. She had the bad luck to be commenting on a developing news story - the mining disaster in West Virginia -- which took a surprise turn.
That tragic twist - that the wrong announcement had been made about the miners' fates - turned out to be even worse for Browne. Just following the transcript of what occurred, it's clear the psychic had no idea what had happened to the miners, though she claimed to have been right on top of it
Browne: "No. I knew they were going to be found. I hate people that say something after the fact. It's just like I knew when the pope was dead."
Later, after the bad news was announced.
Browne: "Yeah, I didn't think - and see, I've been on the show with you, but I don't think there's any that are going to make it."
You're doing a heck of a job, Browne. -SOURCE
Allegations of Deception and Fraud
The following quote is from WIKIPEDIA.COM...
Recently, many skeptics have cited an incident involving Browne which occurred on the U.S. radio program Coast to Coast AM with George Noory as evidence for their allegations of deception and fraud. The incident, which was broadcast live on January 3, 2006, involved Sylvia Browne making her predictions for 2006. Browne and Noory were discussing the nature of her psychic premonitions, when Noory brought up the 2006 Sago Mine disaster. At this time it was believed, due to erroneous news reports, that twelve of the thirteen trapped miners had been found alive. A transcript of the conversation follows:
- Noory: Of course, this is after the fact, with the twelve or thirteen coal miners they found successfully.
- Browne: I know.
- Noory: Had you been on the program today, and had they not been found, would you have felt as if, because they had heard no sounds, that this was a very gloomy moment, and they might have all died?
- Browne: No, I knew they were going to be found. Uh, you know, I hate people who say something after the fact. It's just like I knew when the Pope was dead and I said it on, thank God I was on Montel's show, and I said, according to the time, it was 9-something and whatever Rome time was, and I said he's gone, and he was.
In this segment of conversation, Browne clearly states that she "knew" the miners would be found alive. Whilst it is noted that Browne made no specific statement that this was a psychic premonition, this statement was presented as an example of her psychic abilities.
A short while later in the program the news broke that the original reports were incorrect, and only one of the thirteen miners was alive. Browne was still with a clearly shocked Noory and the following conversation ensued:
- Noory: We're going to follow that story this hour when we're with you, Sylvia, taking phone calls and then...
- Browne: Right.
- Noory: For those of you who are with our affiliate stations, I will be live in that last hour of Coast to Coast...
- Browne: Yeah, I don't think there's, I don't think there's, I don't really think there's anybody alive. If there is, I think maybe only one, I just don't believe that there's... I haven't heard anything because I've been with you, but I just don't think they are alive.
- Noory: That's frustrating.
- Browne: It's terrible, isn't it?
- Noory: O.K, let's go the phones.
Later in the program, Noory once again brought the issue up with Browne, in what many see as an attempt by Noory to allow Browne to correct her previous contradiction. Instead, they claim, Browne came out looking worse.
- Noory: Sylvia, with the accuracy rate that you have, and it is very high, of the few that you get wrong, do they sometimes become right, maybe later on?
- Browne: Yeah, but see I never... I didn't believe that they were alive
- Noory: What's that? The miners?
- Browne: Uhuh.
- Noory: Oh, okay.
- Browne: No, I think that they're... and see I've been on the show with you, so I don't know but I don't think that there's any that are gonna make it.
- Noory: Well, that's not a good situation.
- Browne: No.
- Noory: Thirteen were in there, they said one had died, 12 were alive.
- Browne: Well, there's 12 gone
- Noory: I think the misunderstanding for you was that I was telling you, after the fact, that they were alive. Had that story not broken while we were on the air... what do you think would have happened ? And that's where I think we threw a curve ball at you.
- Browne: Yeah, no, I just believed that they were gone.
- Noory: Well, I think unfortunately you may be right.
This has been highlighted by many as a clear example of Browne's lack of psychic abilities, citing her sudden reversal of opinion when informed of the development. James Randi, one of the lead figures in skeptical thinking, wrote on his website "For anyone not familiar with the methods of these charlatans, this would appear to be a calamitous failure, a blow-out, a total screw-up - but not to anyone familiar with the callous likes of Sylvia Browne." -SOURCE
Sylvia Browne and the Montel William's Show
Psychic Sylvia Browne is seen by millions of viewers weekly, every Wednesday, on the Montel William's Show. It is tragic that so many people are glued to their televisions; but, are too lazy to study the Bible. You'd be surprised how many people form their opinions, beliefs, and convictions from no other source than the TV. Even worse, MANY people RELY upon the television to fill in the blanks in their thinking. Literally, many people look to TV land for the answers to life.
Listen friend, if you don't purposely learn the Bible (God's Word), then you are going to be easy prey for the Devil. Satan's easiest target is the fool who doesn't accept the Bible as God's Word. The foundation of the Christian life is the Word of God. According to 1st Peter 1:23, the Bible is the incorruptible Seed by which we are "born again." Literally, without the Word of God, you cannot be born again. Salvation begins with hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and then believing upon that Gospel (good news) of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Saviour Who shed His precious blood to take away our sins (Colossians 1:14; 1st John 1:7). All Christ requires of us to be saved, is to believe upon Him apart from all else (John 14:6; Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5). Sylvia Browne denies every fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith; yet, deceitfully, claims that her demonic teachings are "in accord with all of today's religions." No, they are not! Sylvia Browne's teachings are only in accord with the Wiccan witches, New Agers, and other New World Order occult groups.
New Age is the religion of the end-time, a homogenization of hundreds of false religions, all which have no particular defined God; but rather, worship an assortment of demonic gods, all masquerades for Satan himself. These followers of Satan believe that there are various different paths to "the light"; but, the light is undefined. They ALL vehemently reject the Biblical teaching that Jesus Christ is God Almighty, and that Christ alone is the ONLY way to Heaven. Consider yourself warned, Sylvia Browne is a false prophet who teaches damnable heresies. No doubt, millions of people will follow her straight into the lake of Fire. How tragic! How sad!
"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 ... For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD." -Jeremiah 29:8
