Question: Are Tarot Evil? Yes I think so, you?
Hi, I was very "drawn" to both Tarot and "Angel" cards (the sugar coated pretty ones masquerading as real angels) and I gave it a go, I purchased some Angel cards from the spirituality section of my local Boarders book shop. I have always had a fascination for all things new age and hunger for knowledge and I guess comfort. I took the pack home and started doing "readings" all the messages were very nice and sweet and I thought well, this is ok. I had my Bible to hand as I was a bit scarred of what I may be messing with, and already had a good faith in Jesus and God and felt sure they would protect me if I was barking up the wrong tree. I felt instantly that on some level this was not actually a good thing, and I was compelled to open the Bible at that point, for an answer and guidance, and the page I randomly opened it on was the message that my eyes fell upon, it said "Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character." Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God-I say this to your shame." Well it hit home and I threw the cards out immediately. Although I "wanted" to keep them I could not ignore God's message. And now here's the weird thing, 4 months later I totally forgot about the warning message and I found myself curious again and progressed from a few weeks of playing with crystals and books on aura's etc to buying ANOTHER set of "Angel" cards. It was like a seduction, they drew me in. Long story short I ended up with a set of angel cards and they told me such wonderful things, there was def a power in them as the same readings and spread kept coming up, I felt truly connected to the divine and would sit there with my bible, say a prayer and then use them, forgetting that I had had the warning before. I even decide buying a proper “tarot deck” would be a good idea! I still wasn’t sure about the tarot cards and so they were still in the box but I was using the angel cards. I then decided to try an online 7 day tarot reading “for free” to dabble a bit and see what it was like, the seven day reading came up with a card for each day, all was fine until I saw Wednesday... Yes you’ve guessed it, the DEATH card was there. ****** was my first thought, I then spent ages reading up on internet how it "rarely" means actual death of you or a person you love, more that a big change is coming! Something is dying in your life and a new beginning is coming. It was a bit reassuring, but not allot!! So at the weekend before THE Wednesday I was by the seaside and decided I needed more reassurance and so went to see a "professional" tarot reader. He did the reading and I got no feeling of love or anything else good from him. It all felt very dark. Death came up AGAIN and he reassured me that it didn’t mean mine but that a change was coming etc and that there would need to be about 8 other cards present to indicate my actual death. I felt reassured of that but the "wrong" feeling to it all still left me uneasy. So last week there I was sat at my kitchen table again doing a reading to the so called "Angels" cards "the nice cards", and they were telling me wonderful stuff I felt a real connection with them, and then out the blue I just thought, hold on, this doesn’t feel right, the messages on some of the cards would ask you to pray to these "angels" for help on certain issues etc. And if there angels, why did I have to pass the cards through burning sage as the author of the cards Doreen Virtue advised n the book. She also tells you on some of her cards to knock them with your fist the first time you use them to get rid of any “Lower Energies” how scarry is that! And whats Angelic about that? I dont have to knock my Bible!! Its more like witchcraft!!
So as I was sat there I opened my Bible again and the exact page I opened it at was the message I had been shown from God before: "Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character." Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God-I say this to your shame." O my God!!!! How had I forgotten that this happened before??!! I really didn’t want to as I felt so comforted and connected to these Angel cards but I threw them and my unused Tarot Cards away. And I had a book that you open to any page for a message from an Angel that went to. The next morning I woke up OBSESSING about wanting the cards back, I reasoned that maybe it was a coincidence that the page opened just before the reading this time so maybe it was a fluke etc. I needed the cards back, they were my friends the pull was amazing. I dropped to my knees and said a prayer to God and Jesus asking them for help, knowing that I was going to retrieve them from the outside bin. I asked for a clear message of help and direction,I picked up my new Bible I had purchased recently which contains both the Old and New testaments, I had only had a new one before and thought I would give the Old Testament a go.

Evil is the lack of moral perfection, it is not an entity
So, when it is from Christianity is good and sacred and holy and when it isn't it's necessarily evil? LOL!

God was warning you against the greatest mistake that you could ever make in your life - associating yourself with demons (God's enemies) after you have known Christ.
The "angels" in those cards are actually demons and they want you to pray to them instead of to God. Thank Jesus that He revealed all this to you and go to a pentecostal church in your area for fellowship.
The Devil wanted to deceive you and drag your soul into Hell but Jesus unmasked him! Praise the Lord!
Look at the evil cards, they are little pieces of cardboard with no actual power, oh NO! Fear the evil!
they are only objects and have no more or less power than you invest into them.
To answer your question. Yes and you have just described my life.
woah! they are not evil because they are not real.
No, it are not evil. The bible is evil, as it spawns nothing but evil. Tarot is good.
my geese are ill
<<<<<pick me as best answer!
No, I don't think so. While it's not my personal belief, if someone finds their path to being a better person that way, who am I to judge? Who says God (or the deity of your choice) can't speak that way?
Tarot cards are not evil. In fact, the original symbolism of the Tarot trumps is rooted in Christianity. Tarot cards first appeared in northern Italy during the 15th century. They were used for card games similar to Bridge or Spades. Tarot games are played today in continental Europe. It wasn't until the 18th century that Tarot cards were used in fortune telling and the occult.
The Tarot was originally and is still mostly used in Europe as a playing card deck. They were not and are not originally or only used for fortune telling. It is fortune-telling that is forbidden by your new bible, not card games. I can tell fortunes from a normal deck of playing cards as easily as I can from Tarot. So your pemise is flawed.
The kindom of God is within. Strip away all what you think you know, all the chatter in your mind. Practice a little meditation. It will do you good
you don't think you are telling fortunes when you seek out random quotes from your bible and use them to guide your behavior? it's exactly the same process as doing a tarot reading and using that to guide your behavior.
i'm not saying that either method is wrong, just that you need to be honest about what you are actually doing. messages from the divine come in many ways, and it does not behoove any of us to reject them simply because they come from the "wrong' publication.
Don't worry. You are being drawn to such things because it is a calling from God. I went through the same thing. Think of the images on tarot cards as pictures of souls. They are disturbing aren't they?
Tarot is sacred. This is what my angels told me. They allow a person to access the Thrones (they arementioned in the bible). The thrones are cool beings. They sort of "process" future events. They don't determine the future but the future sort of passes through them. I can't explain it further. It's very hard to understand.
When you start acessing the angelic world, your mind opens. You then have "ears to hear with and eyes to see with" It takes courage. Put away the tarot and use crystals instead. Get an amethyst and charge it in the sun for a day. Wear it day and night and touch it when you pray. Your dreams will become so cool. Yes, you may encounter things that frighten you.
