Christians: If I engage in Tarot card readings, will that hurt my faith and relationship with God?
I am considering seeing a Tarot card reader because I want to know if my mental situation is going down the tube. What advice can you give me? I know that God says it's wrong in the Bible, but I feel like he isn't telling me what I need to know about my future. What should I do?
don't you know????
what should you do? stick your head up a dead bears anus!
I say that you shouldn't do it.
Tarot card readings, as well as horoscopes and that type of stuff, are ways to let evil guide your life.
The fact is, we're not supposed to know exactly where our life is going.
It's a great sign that you're feeling unsure about this. Just rely on God!
Hope I've helped.
the answer is yes, engaging in tarot cards or any occult practices is opening yourself up to all sorts of demons and entities. it's satanic. don't do it.
How will a tarot card reading tell you about your mental situation? Sheesh.
Listen. If a person is spiritually gifted by God in wisdom, knowledge and discernment -- then she / he does not *need* the cards to give you an accurate reading.
On the other hand, if the psychic is a fake, or if he / she has the wrong interpretation or blunders, it could drive you to needless anxiety or despair.
Honestly, ask our Father of Lights to send you the Spirit of a sound mind. That will do you much more good than a tarot card reader will.
Or look for a spiritual friend -- someone recommended by a pastor or balanced and mature Christian as someone who is really in tune with God the Holy Spirit. Ask *that* person for advice and encouragement.
By the way, you seem to assume that the future is written in stone.
It isn't. Remember the story of Jonah. God changed his mind because the Ninevites changed. Everything in your life may still be altered for good! Rejoice then, for Christ is able to make all things new!
And in the meantime -- TRUST. God loves you, heaps. Look for your future to open up positively.
No, silly. Tarot cards are only meant to help you see the path that you are currently on and, should that path be continued, what to expect in your immediate future.
Honey, you must realize that even though you might get a certain reading it can always change. Our future is shaped by all of our actions.
Remember, God loves you! He will always be there for you! Pray to him!
But I do not see a problem with going to a Tarot reader. Just please, be sure that you pick a GOOD ONE. One who KNOWS WHAT SHE/HE IS DOING! There are too many fakes out there. But I can assure you, there are real psychics. Just not many at all.
Good luck, dear! May God be with you! =]
I don't think tarot cards will hurt your faith and relationship with God. If God is the all powerful it/he/whatever doesn't need to be worried about being upstaged by a silly deck of colorful cards.
I think you're safe.
I read tarot cards on occasion and if you do decide to go to a tarot card reader you might consider changing your question. Rather than finding out if your "mental situation is going down the tube" you might consider starting from accepting that you already do feel stressed (otherwise why would you go to a tarot card reader) and you want to know how you can go about feeling better.
You could see a therapist with the same question.
Whatever you decide you sound like you're feeling a little stressed and I think it's healthy to get support.
