Tarot Cards Are Dangerous for Believers in Christ

Updated on March 8, 2020

Cheryl is a freelance writer, newspaper columnist, poet, licensed/ordained minister and founder of two outreach ministries.

I was recently told by a young adult that tarot cards are becoming common among Christians. Another younger person said some people believe that the Creator speaks to them through the cards. I’ve watched television shows where groups of people are fascinated because of the accuracy of tarot readings. There are varying opinions on this subject but for those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, the Bible indicates that this activity can be dangerous. Babes in Christ might see a fellow believer using tarot cards who does not give the appearance that anything is wrong with it so they may try it too. If you are His, let His word guide you and not someone else’s poor choice.

A great deception in the world today is putting the term “ Christian” on secular activities. There are also people who call themselves Christian witches and there are even a Christian tarot cards. Just because you see the word Christian, does not indicate that our Heavenly Father approves.

God may cut you off

The book of Leviticus was written by Moses as led by the Lord to the children of Israel. He made it very clear that He would turn His back on them if they had anything to do with wizards, witches and those with familiar spirits. He wanted His chosen people to seek Him and not get caught up in behavior He disapproved of. There were times when the Israelites followed the ways of their neighbors and they turned away from God and began worshipping idols. Each time, they their enemies were allowed to overtake them. Believers who seek answers from tarot cards open themselves up to demonic spirits. This can put you at risk for possession and possibly having our Heavenly Father not answer your prayers. In our modern society, people are no longer stoned and witches are not burned, however, His word says He changes not. We live in a dispensation of Grace, but grace can lift. The most important thing to remember is that you might get away with this while on the earth but you run the risk of standing before Him and hearing Him say, “Depart I never knew you.”-(Matthew 7;23).


Satan is our adversary

I John 5:8 tells us: For this purpose the son of man was manifest that he might destroy the works if the devil. Satan is our adversary which means he is our enemy. He hates everyone who has accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. Believers in Christ should have nothing to do with activities that open doors for Satanic spirits to come in and take over their lives. The devil wants us separated from our Savior for all eternity and what will do everything in his power to deceive us. The Apostle Paul tells us in I Corinthians 12 that we have spiritual gifts from the Lord and that the Holy Spirit will always lead to Jesus.

1. Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord but by the Holy Ghost.

Unholy Spirits hate the Name of Jesus and will lead you away from Him, so don't be deceived. Corinthians And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.



We Have The Holy Spirit

When Jesus was about to ascend to heaven He told His disciples He would send the comforter, who is the Holy Spirit. In John 13: 4 He tells us that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and will lead into all truth. Using tarot cards is seeking answers from evil spirits and that is disgraceful for believers who have been given the gift of His Holy Spirit. It’s the equivalent of cheating on your spouse. Jesus suffered and was nailed to a cross for our sins and his blood sets us free, Tarot cards, Ouija boards, snd crystal balls will put us in bondage to the one He died to deliver us from. His Spirit opens doors for communion with Him.

I Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

Believers in Christ have access to the spiritual realm when we operate in spiritual gifts He has equipped us with. Don’t risk your eternal soul by fraternizing with the enemy. Develop your super power by using the gifts He has given you.


Don’t displease Him

I Corinthians 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

Those who have been washed in His blood should desire to please Him. It’s not worth your immortal soul to use tarot cards. Even if it seems like someone else is doing it without consequence, you will have to stand before Him for your own action. Proverbs 14:12 says there is a way that seems right to a man but in the end it leads to death. If you love Him don’t displease Him.

      I don't even read articles about tarot cards as i am a Christian and don't believe in them. People would like to predeict their future, but I don't think that is what the Lord would have us to do. I don't even need too many scriptures to know that tarot cards are just wrong.
