The Experiment At An End, Other Practices

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.
