I am Catholic & come from a very religious family but psychic gifts also run in my family (though it’s not often spoken about). I havr been learnung tarot for a year or so now but struggled internally with reading that it was looked down on, though I always felt that God GAVE me these gifts. Thank you for supporting this. It’s given me great comfort.

Comment on Christian Tarot: Oxymoron or Paradox? by Emily Porter https://www.usgamesinc.com/tarotblog/christian-tarot-oxymoron-or-paradox/#comment-442124 Sun, 03 Sep 2017 00:25:08 +0000 http://www.usgamesinc.com/tarotblog/christian-tarot-oxymoron-or-paradox/#comment-442124 People often use scripture to denounce tarot and other divination methods. But scripture mentions use of divination in godly ways. Joseph used oneiromancy through God. The disciples themselves used divination to determine who the new disciple would be after Judas had committed suicide. It is all in the process. Are you asking God specifically for guidance or insight? Are you using it prayerfully? Are you trying to understand his will for you? Are you trying to determine the future outside of God? Are you going to divination more often than going to prayer? These are all questions to ask yourself.

I will also add a personal thought that I do not think it is inherently a sin to communicate with spiritual entities. The Bible in it’s original Hebrew and Greek is quite specific about what mystical practices you should not do, and English translations have shortened much of this to simply “witchcraft” or “magic”, etc. What it mentions specifically is divination by objects or happenings in nature (eg using clouds to divine), trying to tell the future, snake charming, using potions (presumably to poison someone) since medicinal liquids were and still are used, and the term used was “pharmakeia”. Seducing people was a no-no, as were “charms” which has been interpreted from context to mean spells to influence or change others behavior. (Also note that Rebekah used Mandrake in context of her rivalry with her sister, and it was widely used in love and fertility charms. Shortly thereafter she conceived. It makes no sense to incorporate that into the text unless it was significant in her conception). In regards to spiritual entities, you are not to channel spirits or speak with the dead. But this does not exclude other living spiritual entities that may exist who you do not channel. I would classify angels as spiritual entities personally. I don’t think it would be a sin to communicate with an angel through tarot. I don’t think we should ask them important guiding questions to make decisions, because we can and should go to God. But for lesser things I don’t think it would be a sin to, say, have a conversation with an angel inquiring about what job they do or how their day was. Tho I will say that discernment would be necessary to determine if you were actually speaking with an angel. But if you were asking questions like how their day was I don’t think that would be a sin even if it wasn’t an angel since you wouldn’t be trying to call the dead or asking them questions for guidance/putting them before God.

I think overall, the key in all of this is doing things Through God not without God. When Moses returned to Egypt, the magician priests and him did many similar physics-bending acts. The only difference was in where they were getting their power and who they were calling on. Moses called on God and did His will. The priests called on their gods and esoteric knowledge, and thus were sinful.

Which part of me needs recharging – my three-card spread is Knight of Wands in the middle, Knight of Coins on the left and the High Priest on the right – true, indeed. 🙂

I would need a rest physically, action-wise and even mentally-spiritually, as I have been doing readings for the last four days from morning till night – great but tiring, time to have recharge-time.

Thank you for this post, you have helped me! 🙂
