Is it less expensive to buy tarot cards from Borders or from a specialty store?
I don’t want to order them online, I like to touch them before I buy them.
Plus, ebay is dumb. And I don’t feel like ordering them and going through shipping stuff.
Also, does anyone know of occult-ish stores in the Pittsburgh region that would sell tarot decks?
Answer by brianj1949
If you ask me, going to a specialty store for any kind of product is ALWAYS more expensive than going to a big-box satore or an on-line retailer like Amazon.
I have seen more than one kind of Tarot deck…a specialty shop would be more likely to have the different types and someone on hand to answer your questions.
I know one store of this type in your area. Here is the URL: www.hocuspocus13.net/store.html. Other Pennsylvania stores I found include Into the Light, 206 West Main Street, Bloomsburg, , 17815 and Mystical Treasures, (724)462-5809 C/o Jackson St., Rochester,

No they aren’t.
(the only sins are clearly stated in the OT)
Answer by pmjenn85
Sins have to hurt people. If it isn’t hurting you or hurting someone else, it can’t be a sin. A really strict moralist might claim that tarot cards or video games or rock & roll or the waltz or comic books or WHATEVER is a sin because it damages your own faith and encourages others to do the same. But that’s for you to decide in your own heart: is what I’m doing hurting me or hurting my faith? Is it hurting someone else? If not, it’s just plain NOT A SIN.
edit: to believe that Tarot cards are a sin, you almost have to believe that they actually work. Haven’t we, as a people, moved beyond that kind of superstition?
Answer by $ arah (account suspended)
No they are games and cards…who cares. I think you mom is old enough to decide what she wants to do, leave her alone.
Answer by firstname.lastname@example.org
yes yes they are, but violent games arent really because they arent hurting or killing anyone in real life but as long as you ask god for forgiveness you would be alright as long as you dont do it on purpose.
why do people call the oija board and tarot cards evil?
i have seen many questions about oija boards being evil and the like. and people saying that tarot cards are evil as well. i have a deck of tarot cards and one of my friends (hes not my friend anymore) said that they were evil and he kept telling me to get rid of them. why would someone call those spritual object evil? we as humans call whatever is different or hard to understand (like myself) evil, dark, or just reject it and close their minds. ut why would they be evil?
Answer by searching for knowledge
people call them evil because they do not understand and respect them. ive heard horror stories about the ouija board but i myself have never had an “evil” experience. nothing bad has ever come out of playing with the board. i also own a set of tarot cards and again, nothing bad has come of using them. i used to date a guy that used the ouija board once. all it did was move by itself and he got scared and put it away. swears it is evil and he refuses to try it again. plain old fear i think is the final answer here.

I know what you mean Raven. I am a practicing hoodoo root worker, and I practice Yoruba and Native American spirituality. I have learned over the years to just keep my spirituality to myself. Dont worry about being accepted as being true to yourself is much more important. It does get funny sometimes. My son and his wife are fundamentalist christians and whenever I visit she is constantly giving me this wide opened eye look as if I am going to curse her or something. One time I was there and I was meditating in their back yard and my granddaughter was out there with me. My daughter in law ran out there, grabbed up her daughter, took her into the house and started praying and singing hymns to her. Its apparently easy for them to be afraid of what they dont understand or care to educate themselves about. Its called brain washing.
Answer by David B
Generally, people tend to fear what they do not truly understand. They will also tend to criticize, or hail these items as evil, rather than to try to understand them. Some Christian groups have labeled these things as “evil”, or a “sin”. That adds to their beilef in the evil. But the bottom line is fear of the unknown…
In example of this fear and evil relationship, look at what would happen if you sailed too far to the east pre Christopher Columbus, not only would you fall off the edge of the earth, but there were dragons and all sorts of evil things there. But did ANYONE know? Of course not… They used evil to explain what they feared to explore themselves.
It’s the same thing as Tarot or Ouija… plain old fear.
(I bought my daughter a set of tarot cards and am encouraging her to learn as much as she can… and hope she lets me learn, too.)

This is what the Bible says about that:
Lev 19:26 ” Do not practice divination or sorcery.
Dt 18:10-14 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the LORD your God.
14 The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.
2 Kings 17:17 They sacrificed their sons and daughters in the fire. They practiced divination and sorcery and sold themselves to do evil in the eyes of the LORD, provoking him to anger.
2 Ch 33:6 He sacrificed his sons in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced sorcery, divination and witchcraft, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, provoking him to anger.
AC 8:9 Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, 10 and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is the divine power known as the Great Power.” 11 They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his magic. 12 But when they believed Philip as he preached the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13 Simon himself believed and was baptized. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw.
Acts 19:19 A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. 20 In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.
This is why many say that it is evil….because it goes against faith in a God, the creator of heaven and earth. Believing or putting your faith in anything or anyone other than Jesus Christ is evil in the site of God.
Also when the people of the day put their faith in Christ…they burned their scrolls. This is what is done today with people’s belongings to devination if they accept Christ as savior.
Devination can be considered any of the following…but not limited too: Horoscope, astrology, tarot cards, oija boards, calling up the dead(sayonce)(spelling sorry), using medians, wicca, witchcraft, black magic, white magic, and other types of things. Hope this helps.
