How is the Ouija board evil? Tarot? Saints?
I don't understand. Aren't tarot cards calling spirits too? But they don't bring evil right? What's the difference? Is it because you are summoning someone in particular with a Ouija?
I'm a Christian. Is it wrong that I use cards?
Also, why is it ok in Catholism to worship Saints?
1. Ouija boards create a direct link to spirits to come to our plane. Tarot cards do a similar thing, but not as strongly, and as you guessed, not as directly. Below is a link to my information on Ouija boards.
2. I know many christians who use tarot cards. They do not belong to any one religion - they are just a divitation tool
3. According to the bible you shall not worship any false god before "me" that is, before God. Idol worship is also not allowed. I am not sure why then, it is OK to have statues of saints in your home, or to worship them. I admit my knowledge there lacks. But it may be that they don't worship saints so much as respect them and hold them up as a goal to work towards.
well tarot cards aren't evil.
My best friend has a pack of tarot cards and she never lets me touch them shes says it'll give the cards some negative energy. So i guess its not evil its just tells you the future
Christians should be able to use them
I'm a Christian and I'm totally into that stuff.
It really depends on how you use those things. Like guns, those objects are harmless. It's the people who use them that are dangerous.
Christians are not supposed to use any forms of divination.
No christian denomination other than catholics consider praying to Mary and the saints (idol worship) as being ok.
Here's my link on ouija boards and such:
They aren't evil. Good vs. Evil is just a construct of the human mind. Ouija boards and tarot cards are toys, and should be taken lightly when used.
I can tell you're growing spiritually just by asking these questions. In regards to the Catholism statement, Catholics don't worship saints, they ask them to interecede to help lift up their prayers, much like when someone asks another person to pray for them. See the link below for more insight...and steer clear of ouija boards for the reasons sighted above plus more! Since you're a Christian I think you should speak to your spritiual leader about your interest in tarot cards so you can gain more insight on this subject. Most importantly you should research the bible for yourself, only then will you have a complete understanding to these questions. God Bless
Simply put-so u don't have to read a pile of info:
Tarot Cards= Your own energy-no spirits.
Ouijaboard= contacting low level entities(ghosts who can drain you and hurt you).
Mediums= connection to loved ones and spirit guides-safe and helpful.
in catholosism you don't worship saints you pray to them and they tell God, or something along those lines
I'M ONLY 13
The Ouija board is not evil. It has no power until used. However if a person uses it it is possible to bring forth UNWANTED EVIL spirits that try and trick the user. So be careful.Tarots cards also have now power until they are used and they work off the energy of the user, which is why no other person is allowed to touch them but the user. They are to grow together in order the user to become more in tune with their Psyche.
Although it is opposed by many religions to intermix Pagan beliefs with Christian beliefs it really all depends on your beliefs. My family grew up Catholic, but my mom's family also grew up with other spiritual beliefs. My great grandmother was a Faith Healer. She "healed" with the power of prayer and some may say magic. So I believe that they can intermix.
Lastly, Catholics DO NOT worship Saints. They pray to them for help and guidance. These people once lived their lives devoted to do God's work, spread his message and followed in the footsteps of God and were close to Him spiritually. In death, because of their great devotion, were honored with the title and each still perform through him their duties on a spiritual level.
Don't mess with what you don't understand.
everyone has there own belives . so try not to make a compliant about it. im sorry for my terrible spelling.hahahaaa..
it's not wrong
just mae sure you make a sacred circle
that way no evil spirts can come
and ur channeling will be able to close only when YOU want to close it
Saints - Catholics do not worship saints. They venerate them. There's a difference. You can venerate your mother, for instance, but you don't worship her.
Magik - Ouija and Tarot and other forms of Magik are considered a kind of idolatry in Christianity. Basically Magik and divination are based on prayers to spirits other than God, thus the connection in Christian belief.
Catholic Christians, in particular, fear that Magik more often than not brings forth diabolical powers into the lives of people and so priests warn people off from practicing it for fear of demonic oppression and possible possession, as well as the loss of Grace by God through sin, which is the most serious consequence.
