Many religious organizations condemn the use of Tarot because the cards use symbols they do not want their adherents to contemplate. Others because the idea of fortune-telling is abhorrent. Most people who condemn the Tarot know very little about it.

Nightwind: Mwa ha ha!

Some religious people have religious objections to them. Many others don’t. Whether you consider them “witchcraft” (and whether that’s a problem) depends upon your definition and perspective.

tarot card reading is of the devil and not of GOD.

Sure, since tarot reading is all made up, like in just a game, it can’t really harm you, so no sin, no witchcraft.
Oh, and whatever religion your worried about affecting, also made up and not really very important. So still no real problem either way.

According to the CHRISTIAN perspective, tarot cards and other forms of divination (fortune telling) are dangerous because they can open someone to a negative spiritual influence. There are other beings which exist in the spiritual realm besides God and angels, namely demons, who do NOT have the best interests of humans at heart. So, it would be very easy for a demon to mislead someone through tarot or other forms of divination, mostly by causing them to be distracted away from God. The same is especially true of “spirit mediums”, those people who claim to be able to talk to the dead. The problem with this is that, according to scripture, dead people are “asleep” and “have no knowledge of anything under the sun.” So, there are only two possiblities for spirit medium who appears to be “channeling” a dead spirit: they are either a charlatan and duping their “clients” (which is probably most often the case) OR, and much more dangerous, they’re actually communicating with demons or other malevolent spirits who are pretending to be someone’s dead loved ones. They don’t call the devil the “father of lies” for nothing.
Of course, all of this is according to what Christianity (and i believe Judaism and Islam, also) have to say about this kind of thing. If one doesn’t believe in Judeochristianity or Islam, then there really isn’t a reason to refrain from fortune telling; although personally i know of many christians who partake of fortune telling practices, which doesn’t make any sense to me, since christianity teaches that fortune telling will lead to no good.

Have NOTHING to do with any form of spiritism as this is the workings of Satan the Devil and his Demons, it is just one of the many tools the Devil uses to turn us against Jehovah God.
Here is what the Bible has to say at GALATIANS 5:19-21
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, and they are fornication, uncleanness, loose conduct, 20 idolatry, PRACTICE OF SPIRITISM, enmities, strife, jealousy, fits of anger,contentions,divisions, sects, 21 envies, drunken bouts, revelries, and things like these. As to these things I am forewarning YOU, that those who practice such things will not inherit God’s Kingdom.
LEVITICUS 19:31
31 “‘Do not turn yourselves to the spirit mediums, and do not consult professional foretellers of events, so as to become unclean by them. I am Jehovah YOUR God.

It depends on how you’re using them and what religion you follow. If your religion has strictures against any form of divination or prediction, then using tarot cards in a predicitve capacity would be against that religion. If your religion has no such strictures, then you can do whatever you like with them. Tarot isn’t always predictive either… or at least not any more predictive then an astute person can be (ie: A guy who got caught cheating on his past three girlfreinds might be predicted to cheat on his next girlfreind).
Tarot can be used in plenty of other ways. Yes, they can be used in witchcraft, but that’s just one use for them. (Note that almost anything can be used in witchcraft… candles, pots and pans, etc). Tarot provides a rich wealth of symbolism that a creative mind can apply to situations to come up with alternative solutions and analyses. It’s up to you whether they go against your beliefs.

hi there! I have a different perspective for you.
I am assuming that you are a religious person, and just wanted to say that I actually believe that there are many many ways that you can study and use the Tarot and have no conflict with your religious beliefs whatsoever. Here’s how I come to that conclusion:
1. If you are interested in prayer, then you are basically conversing with God, correct? Tarot is just another way to converse with god. All the cards are, basically, are a filter… a way for God to speak to you. Throughout history and biblical reference, God has always “appeared” or “talked” to his followers through different mediums. Many people believe that without filters, we could not handle talking to God. Tarot is a filter… just like burning bushes, archangels, etc. It is a very visual filter, so that you don’t even have to worry too much about language. In this way, many people use Tarot to open a conversation with the Divine wisdom of God.
2. Tarot is actually based around the system of Quabalah, which is a part of Judaism….Which is a founding religion that even Christianity and Islam share commonalities with. After all, all three of these major world religions share the Old Testament and many of their prophets. They are all religions of Abraham.
3. There are even biblical tarot decks that you can pick up and study if you are concerned… look them up on Aeclectic.net.
4. Nothing can affect your religious beliefs unless you let them.
5. Many tarot scholars study the tarot for the purely cerebral enjoyment of studying the symbols and stories tied to the tarot. These are people who often are philosophers, psychologists, and artists, and have nothing to do with divination at all.
6. Many of the archetypes in the cards are best explained as Biblical, actually.
