So...I have laid out the cards a few more times, sticking to a couple of subjects or questions that one might seek knowledge on.
My conclusions: I don't see any merit in the cards other than introspection and a firing up of my intuition. They are like channels for psychological processes rather than accurate fore-tellers or spiritual tools. Kind of a more complicated form of Solitaire.
I have seen in the Bible where a person can have a "demon of divination." And I have heard of "channeling" which would imply the assistance of a supernatural being. Maybe these things are needed for really kick-ass fortune telling.
Not doing that. Not now, not ever. I may be rebellious but I do not welcome into my mind or being that which I do not understand.
For the same reason, I will never use a Ouija Board or seek to consult the dead. Just a matter of self-protection. I am sure that whatever spirits may roam about also have their own agendas which may or may not be beneficial to me. I would rather not poke at these spirits with the proverbial stick.
To me, that is something that makes good sense and I can agree with the Bible on that one. The Bible isn't all bad. It isn't all good(not a criticism of a higher power, more a criticism of man's penchant for re-writing history). It is not to be taken lightly.
I know that I take great liberties with my religion and go out of bounds, probably in a very foolish way. Religion is not just faith, it is a discipline. I am not good with disciplines.
I will not renounce Christ. I will not return to atheism. I will continue to struggle. This I know.
