what does it say in the Jewish bible?

Answer by g-awd the bible bully
God wants you to learn some card trix. God loves trix.

Answer by Deadpan Doubtress
Most view tarot cards as “witchcraft” or divination; the Bible says no-no to witchcraft and divination.

Hope that helps…if you’ve already bought them, though, pass some my way. I’ve always been curious.

Answer by Guessses, A.R.T.
The reason the Bible “frowns” upon “divination” is that it presumes “Free Will” does not exist.

Answer by guinnessx
You don’t have to worry about a thing. Both are equally true… meaning not and all and completely useless. Have fun with your cards.

Answer by no1home2day
Turning for guidance to anyone OTHER than God is forbidden in the Scriptures. That includes tarot cards, the ouija board, astrology, soothe saying, and talking to the dead.

Using any of these things opens the door to the satanic to invade your life in very subtle ways that you won’t realize until it’s too late and you’re in bondage.

I beg of you, please, PLEASE don’t get started in any of this. Get your guidance from God, and find your fun in “mad libs” or some other safe form of enjoyment.

Answer by milomax
Christians are going to tell you that it’s divination and the information comes from demons (or something like that), and therefore a no-no according to the Bible.

I have tarot cards and use them, and my luck is fine and there is no evil hanging around. In fact, I feel pretty blessed the way my life is going – not that that has anything to do with the tarot. I just mean I don’t think I’m being punished for having/using them.

I believe in God, but am not Christian.

Answer by Cathy
Tarot Cards is under spiritism. Look at what the bible says in Revelation 21:8- But as for the cowards and those without faith and those who are disgusting in their filth and murderers and fornicators and those practicing spiritism and idolaters and all the liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur. This means the second death. Well that’s the bible’s point of view it’s better to stay away from those type of stuff like horoscopes, medians, talk to the dead, the ouija board and tarot cards, all those type of things. Hope this bible text was helpful.

Answer by Deu
So listen and decide.
I have had tarot cards for over 15 years now. they are purely entertainment for me. I dont’ live my life by them no matter what message they might give.
I also own a bible. I beleive in God. I know that I live my the best that I can and I also pray often. i beleive that God will always show me the way through good times and bad and will never give me more than I can handle.
If you dont want to bring evil or bad luck into your life. Then my suggestion is to NOT use the cards in a way that you might make yourself or someone else beleive what they say is true. My beleif is that thoughts can manifest into reality. So if you beleive in somthing bad enough, then it can happen. You don’t want to live your life misguiding others, so if you get them, them for fun only, and don’t live by them.

Deuteronomy 18:

10 And do not let your people practice fortune-telling or sorcery, or allow them to interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft,

11 or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead.

12 Anyone who does these things is an object of horror and disgust to the LORD. It is because the other nations have done these things that the LORD your God will drive them out ahead of you.

13 You must be blameless before the LORD your God.

14 The people you are about to displace consult with sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the LORD your God forbids you to do such things

Be Blessed:-)

Answer by thecityoftownsville_2000
While the Bible may frown upon the services of fortune tellers, Tarot cards are mentioned nowhere in the Bible and fortune telling is not the original use of Tarot. The earliest Tarot cards appeared in northern Italy during the 15 century. The symbolism of traditional Tarot cards reflect the Catholic culture of Italy and there is no evidence they were intended to promote any heretical doctrines. They were originally intended for use in a card game in which the so-called “major arcana” were a trump suit. There is no record of divination with Tarot cards prior to the 18th century. The idea of a trump suit in modern card games originated with the the original Tarot card game. While most people, especially in English speaking countries, think of Tarot as a tool for divination as we have been given no other context in which to view the cards, Tarot as an actual card game is still played today in continental Europe and from what I see on the internet, there is a growing number of people outside Europe interested in playing Tarot card games.

Answer by Sadhara Satguru
Hello July

I think that you may have to separate your religion from your spirituality. As one is man made, the other your divine self.

Tarot are not evil, they are 78 pieces of laminated card. They will help you with insight, guidance, they will help you understand yourself more & to grow.

Ask you heart what you should do, not religion as God is found everywhere.

Sadhara

Answer by freetarot
The Bible doesn’t mention Tarot. I assume the reason God gave you free will is because he wanted you to make your own decisions — so, I wouldn’t worry about whether or not God thinks it’s okay. i think he wants you to decide.

I wouldn’t presume to know God’s intentions, but I’m pretty sure he didn’t mean for the “truth” to be dispelled only by narrow-minded and ignorant Christian hardcases. Again, I think he’d prefer that you decide for yourself.

Tarot doesn’t bring bad luck or evil — only people can do that. Tarot also doesn’t equate to witchcraft. Sure, some witches may use Tarot … but some use candles as well. Doesn’t mean candles are evil or unlucky. It’s not the tool — it’s the intent. Many Christians (not the narrow-minded kind) use Tarot (check the Tarot boards and see!)

Answer by gypsyohara
Tarot cards are no more likely to bring evil into your life than purchasing any other item and bringing it into your home.
It is your approach to the item and the honor with which you utilize them which would make them “unlucky” for you (in that they don’t offer you the guidance you seek.).
Yes, there are admonitions against certain forms of divination. One in Leviticus specifically makes refference to a form of divination where a child was used in the divination and made to walk through fire.
Also several of the admonitions in the book of Numbers also have admonitions against planting two kinds of crops in one’s garden (a good thing to watch out for if you plant flowers AND vegetables) and admonishes ministers to keep their beards. It also speaks against “the wearing of garments that blend two different kinds of threads” (so if you wear poly-cotton, you’re basically going straight to hell).
The Bible also has it’s share of divination: In Moses & Aaron’s time the Urim and the Thumim are utilized to gain specific answers. In Jonah’s story, the casting and drawing of Lots is used to determine why the ship has fallen onto hard time.
Joel says “your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”
My take…do as your conscience demands.
I am 24 years a Tarologist.
I am a Christian as well.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Tarot cards – do i believe them?

I have been going thru a separation/breakup/i dont know what with my partner of 5 years. I have turned to Psychics, Horoscopes, Tarot cards and this thing you do with your ring and a strand of hair. All answers point to a positive outcome. I do this thing with the cards where you ask a question and count out 3 piles of up to 13 cards. if an ace appears in any of these piles you stop coz that indicates part of the answer (3 aces = definately, 2-yes, 1= maybe and none is a no). Do i trust what these say. Has anyone heard of the ring and hair thing where you ask yes/no questions and it swings a certain way? do i believe this too. I ask the ring the same questions and get the same answers. Help. Does anyone know of a good website which does a free reading?

Answer by dmd
You know what, i tried all that stuff years ago. Believe it if you want to open the door to Satan. You don’t need all that stuff. It might look like a good answer right now, but down the road, you pay the price.

A better option is to rely on God. He is the answer to all your problems. I am a Christian now, but I speak from past experience.

Answer by naive_child21
Well I can’t answer if you believe in tarot cards 😉 (and I can’t say that this is the best way to get over a break up!)

BUT: I know all of my married aunts & cousins one day did the yes-no thing with a strand of their hair and their wedding rings for what children they would have: it got two girls, two girls, and three boys (so far, all correct, and not looking to change). I found that very interesting…

Answer by carole
Sure, I know a web site with free readings. I got a good one here too: http://www.facade.com/tarot/ I stick with Rider Waite deck and the Celtic Cross layout.

The hair and the ring thing is called dowsing or using a pendulum and there are lots of ways to do it. It is similar to kinesiology and muscle testing. I use this method for a lot of stuff and trust it for myself.

There has been some serious upheaval, astrologically speaking having to do with eclipses etc. My sister has been dealing with romantic relationship issues too – mine issue is more about my kids. If you want a great source for Astrology on line, here’s the link I use: http://www.astrologyzone.com/main.html

Alternatively, I find Angel cards to be very helpful in times of crisis also. Here’s the link to them: http://www.consciousone.com/c1Cards/cardsView.cfm?cardGroupID=1

Of course, all these things can do is give you things to think about. Ultimately they are tools designed to help you make your own decision – they can not do the deciding for you or give you guaranteed info. I am sure you are aware of that, I include it for some of our more puritanical Answerers.

Peace!

Answer by Jt
I do not think resorting to “magic” is a way of sorting out your life. Ever think of going to church? The only thing that delving into the so called spirit world will do is summon up more issues. There are evil entities that can accompany thing as such like tarot card and the Ouija board- I KNOW> Be cautious if you do so, and keep your faith in a higher power. Satan searches for lonely souls. Do not allow yourself to be so frugal- There are more fullfilling things.

Answer by lunartic5
What you choose to believe is just that, your choice.

The tools you mentioned are just tools, and can help guide you in a direction or towards a change that is taking place so that you can be aware of it, but remember nothing is set in stone, and it doesn’t tell the future, but what CAN happen.

To have a positive outcome you just have to make positive choices.

Good luck 🙂

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How should I interpret the tarot card I got after I asked a question?

Yesterday, I asked the tarot cards a question. I asked “How does _____ look at me now? Does he think of me in a positive or negative way? How would you describe it.” The card that I picked was Strength.

Answer by S
Basically this card means a triumph over enemies through courage. U r well determined for some objective.

Answer by Fly My Pretty
Strength is about combining two strengths to overcome weakness. The Maiden is weak of form, but her mastery of herself is powerful. The Lion is strong of form, but weak when it comes to mastering himself. The Maiden’s commands overcome the Lion’s weakness, and his form overcomes the Maiden’s weakness. This is why the Maiden doesn’t try to harness the lion to a chariot, nor does she run from it or try to kill it. She meets its eyes, touches it, embraces it.
This is a card about understanding our wild natures, accepting them, yet also gentling those passions so that they work for us rather than against us.
Putting these two strengths together creates perseverance, personal honor, and courage.

The card can also stand for a steadfast friend.
