Why is it that people think that tarot cards are evil?

Tarot cards are not meant to tell the future, they are meant to offer guidance on decisions and choices that we make for our future, in order for them to work you have to believe anyway, otherwise you will get a bogus reading.
Besides the Tarot is nothing more than an ancient egyptian card game. So I guess people playing poker is evil too??? Doesnt make any sense


  1. This belief is most commonly held among the christian faith, who frown upon divinatory methods and what they call false prophecies.
    They have been labelled evil by those people who are too narrow minded to get off their backsides and research what Tarot is REALLY about.
    Just another example of closed minds and tiny mentalities unfortunately.

  2. as a christian, im not allowed to believe in things like that including horoscope readings. its bad because its not God telling but the devil. we all have this thing called a “familiar spirit” where it follows you everywhere u go and it knows everything about you, when you die, it has no1 else to follow so it will find a close mate or anyone that you know and would somehow tempt you to go to the fortune teller and make you think that the deceased is trying to contact you which is actually the devil. the devil would find ways to drag you down.

  3. I once went to taco bell and got a taco and then I wanted hot sauce but I had to wait in line for the hot sauce so I got mad cause by then my taco was cold and I had to go to catch the bus to go back home and the bus was late so I started walking home but my leg was hurting so went bact to the bus stop but by then I missed the bus so I tried to hitch hike but a cop told me I can’t do that.

  4. Poker doesn’t call unto the devil to divine the future. Tarot does. Besides, you are pretty dumb in history aren’t you? Egyptians loved witchcraft of all sorts. Ever heard of sun worship? This practise evolved across all ancient civilizations (Horus->Ra->Helios->Apollo->Sol Invictus) as one civilization conquered another and amalgamated its culture. So, the “harmless” game of Tarot has been calling on the devil for more than 5000 years. See the difference between poker and Tarot now?

  5. people are afraid of the unknown,Myself I like tarot cards my only fault 9 years ago I should have listened harder to my reading.I sure as Hell would not be so unhappy now.

  6. Tarot cards are evil because people really think they are capable of getting advice from them. People should just think for themselves instead of being led by a quack.

  7. It is mainly out of ignorance. Tarot cards are very ancient, and todays modern deck is based on it without the Majoy Arcana, Clubs=Wands, Diamonds=Pentacles, Spades=Swords,Hearts=Cups. The royal cards are equal to the knight, queen and king of the respective suits and the Joker=Fool card. There are those that think they are evil because the have the notion that only God knows our destiny. However it is not an evil instrument of the devil. It is a tool for channeling ones own divine connection with the creator to help ourselves with mundane problems. The only thing is unless you can keep a reading done for yourself by yourself objective, have someone else do the reading for you. Also do not ask the same question twice as that is an affront to the “fates” as it were. If you need to ask again, us a different medium, like rune stones or the pendulum.
    To the Christian who say it is evil: The 23r psalm says “I have my rod and staff they comfort me”. That was a form of divination, the casting of a rod (small stick about 2 feet or so in length) and a walkning staff (about 5-6 feet long) the way that they would fall would direct the traveler.

  8. Most Christian thinks that we,readers of tarot, some how call up the devil to read them. In truth we use them to focus our psychic powers. That is all they do, we do not call on sprits, demons etc to use them. Just ourself

  9. One reason is because people feel that it negates the concept of free will if there is a way to see what’s in the future. In other words, if you can see the future, then it doesn’t matter what you do or don’t do because it’s all predetermined. Many Christians see this as Evil because they believe God gave us free will, so divination fake at best and Evil at worst because it is not of God and whatever is not of God is Evil.
    The logic doesn’t really work for me either, but religion is rarely about logic.
