I’m well aware that I posted about this only a few months ago, but sometimes change is radical and quick and doesn’t slowly occur over time. That’s what happened to me – an abrupt about-face.
After posting Fun Facts about myself, something happened. I can’t really explain it and don’t really feel like trying, but things in my life changed. Not only do I not read Tarot for clients or friends anymore, but I don’t read for myself either. In fact, I’ve put my decks away in a box and buried it underneath a whole pile of other crap I need to find something to do with. Why the dramatic change?
Because I spent some serious time in the Bible lately and I’ve had an epiphany of sorts. God wants me to come to Him for the answers that I used to go to the cards for. And if He doesn’t give an answer, then the answer is “not right now.” It’s simple but has had a profound effect on my life.
I feel the need to post this because I don’t want someone else to follow my path. I made a mistake and need to rectify it. I won’t be a stumbling block for someone else. Which is why I don’t plan on selling my decks (though I could get a lot of money for them) and I don’t plan on giving them away or donating them. I intend to throw them away or destroy them somehow.
“But you must be careful so that your freedom does not cause others with a weaker conscience to stumble. For if others see you-with your “superior knowledge”-eating in the temple of an idol, won’t they be encouraged to violate their conscience by eating food that has been offered to an idol? So because of your superior knowledge, a weak believer for whom Christ died will be destroyed. And when you sin against other believers by encouraging them to do something they believe is wrong, you are sinning against Christ.” ~ 1 Corinthians 8:9-12
So I’m publicly admitting my wrongdoings and am doing my best to change it. Reading those verses, and others, brought chills to my spine. Something inside of me just said that Tarot is wrong because it’s bringing me to something other than God for advice, guidance, wisdom. God wants us to go to Him for these things and more.
This is me doing a “recall” on my Fun Facts post. I’m not telling anyone what to do, I’m just saying what I believe. If you’re a believer of Christ and don’t think Tarot is wrong, I challenge you to really read His Word and tell me it’s okay to do. Because what I read says it isn’t. I still read the cards and read the Bible and prayed, but God didn’t want just a piece of me, He wants all of me. He wants all of you too.
