My friend just told me she’s a psychic. What should I do?

ANGELA WRITES: I have a longtime friend who is a Christian, but recently told me she’s a psychic. She claims that she sometimes blacks out and sees things that end up happening a short time later, and that it’s not her fault because she “suddenly and randomly goes into a trance.” She says she doesn’t like it or try to do it. I’m just not sure how to react.

I know that the Bible says not to seek out mediums, psychics, and fortune tellers because they will defile us (Leviticus 19:31), but she’s my friend and I don’t think it would be right to just abandon her because of a recent problem. Doesn’t that verse mean that we shouldn’t ask for our fortunes to be told or to be resurrecting spirits? What about if I just want to be friends? On the other hand, I know I can’t just act like it’s all good, or that psychics are great, etc. It’s not good, and such a power is generally given or staged by demons, like in Acts, where Paul cast the divining spirit out of the slave girl (Acts 16:16-19). What should I do?
