True schizophrenics aren't prophetic, and the voices are usually insulting (such as "you suck, you're a failure, everybody hates you"). Occasionally they think they hear voices from God, or command hallucinations (such as "chop off your arm because a demon inhabits it"). Auditory hallucinations are the most common, followed by visual hallucinations, olfactory and gustatory (smell and taste).
Therefore, I have to wonder.....how many prophets are misdiagnosed schizophrenics? That they are not truly mentally ill, but because medical science doesn't believe in auditory prophecy, they are labeled as mentally ill and given antipsychotics?
Something to ponder. Does you friend's issue impact his ability to live normally?
