(See the story here.)
Having been a tarot reader prior to becoming a Christian, I concur 100%.
It's not that I didn't want to help people. My goal was always to point to the divine in their lives and give my clients insight into their complicated situations.
But even so, I was often taken aback by how much power the clients gave the reader. "Should I leave my husband?" "Should I have an affair with the man in my office?" "Should I take this job or fly to Reno or put my kids in private school or begin a liquid weight loss diet?"
No matter how much I tried, it seemed that most of my clients wanted someone, anyone, to tell them how to live their lives.
I remember that for a short time after becoming a Christian, I continued my practice of reading cards for clients. My heart was in the right place, I thought. I always sought God in the readings. I thought I was helping. But then, little by little, my heart changed. I began to see that people were treating me as a kind of idol. The reality was that it wasn't MY intention that was the problem. It was that I was leading people astray, despite my best intentions.
So I quit. I quit my tarot reading job. Quit reading for friends. Ultimately I stopped reading for myself, even. The scriptures are more than sufficient if I want to try and understand God's will for me. Pray is sufficient. I don't need a deck of cards to offer guidance any more.
Tarot readers cannot save you. Only through faith in Christ Jesus can you find true life.
