Joan Bunning’s “Learning the Tarot”. It’s simple, it’s easy to understand. It’s laid out in lessons, so it’s basically a beginner’s course in Tarot reading. I used it, and I’ve had very good success.

Why is it sinful to use Tarot cards?
Why? Communicating with dead spirits is apparently sinful. Do any Tarot readers really believe that? I highly doubt it. It’s all a con, so why is it bad?

Young People Ask . . .
Dabbling in the Occult
—What’s the Harm?
ARE teenagers really interested in the occult? A group of researchers sought to find out by surveying students in 115 middle and secondary schools. The survey yielded these revealing statistics: Over half of those surveyed (54 percent) said that they are interested in the occult and the supernatural, while a quarter (26 percent) said that they are “very interested.”
Researchers for the University of Alaska at Anchorage write: “Newspaper and magazine stories about the supposed explosion of satanic cult activity . . . have proliferated in recent years.” Experts say that there is little hard evidence to support claims of widespread Satanism among youths. Even so, there is no question that many young ones are interested in aspects of Satanism and the occult, even if such interest is only casual.
‘What’s the harm in dabbling in the occult?’ some youths might therefore ask. In answer, let’s look at some of the ways youths get involved in the occult in the first place.
The Lure of the Occult
An article in U.S.News & World Report observes that “children and teenagers today have access and exposure to a bewildering—often disturbing—array of imagery and information that would have been unimaginable even 20 years ago.” Curiosity drives many youths to read books and magazines, watch videos, or surf Web sites on the Internet that feature occult material.
According to BBC News Online, popular TV programs that feature witchcraft and vampirism “encourage an interest in witchcraft among children, it is claimed.” Some heavy-metal music likewise features violent or demonic themes. Columnist Tom Harpur wrote in the Toronto newspaper The Sunday Star: “I must issue the strongest possible warning about what is happening [in music]. . . . I have never seen anything so depraved. The songs are obsessed with madness, possession, demons, blood, curses, violence of every kind, including rape, self-mutilation, murder, and suicide. Death and destruction, prophecies of doom, the denial of all that is good and the embracing of all that is hideous and evil—these are the themes.”
Does listening to such music really contribute to destructive behavior? It evidently did so in at least one case—that of a 14-year-old youth in the United States who stabbed his mother to death and then killed himself. The walls of his room were covered with posters of heavy-metal rock musicians. His father pleaded afterward: “Tell parents to watch what music their children listen to.” He said that the week before his son killed his mother, he kept singing a rock song “about blood and killing your mother.”
Then there are role-playing games, some of which allow participants to take on the role of sorcerers and other occult figures. Many of these games feature demonistic violence.*

Nevertheless, the research organization Mediascope reports: “Studies show that the preference for heavy metal music may be a significant indicator for alienation, substance abuse, psychiatric disorders, suicide risks . . . or risk-taking behaviors during adolescence, but music is not the cause of these behaviors. It is hypothesized that teenagers already struggling with those issues may be attracted to heavy metal music, because the lyrics express their own troubled feelings.”
Researchers may not all agree on the dangers of listening to satanic music. But could a diet of videos, music, or games that highlight violence or self-destruction be anything but poisonous? For Christians, however, dabbling in the occult presents an even greater danger.
God’s View of the Occult
At 1 Corinthians 10:20, the apostle Paul warned Christians: “I do not want you to become sharers with the demons.” Just who are the demons, and why is it so dangerous to get involved with them? Simply put, the demons are former angels, who have chosen to follow Satan the Devil. Satan means “Resister” and Devil means “Slanderer.” According to the Bible, this former angelic son of God made himself a resister and a slanderer by choosing to rebel against God. In time, he enticed other angels to join him in his rebellious course. These allies thus became demons.—Genesis 3:1-15; 6:1-4; Jude 6.
Jesus called Satan “the ruler of this world.” (John 12:31) Satan and his demons have “great anger” over their impending destruction. (Revelation 12:9-12) Not surprisingly, those who have become involved with the demons have found them to be vicious. One woman in Suriname who grew up in a family that practiced spiritism saw firsthand how the demons “enjoy torturing their unwilling victims.”# Getting involved with these cruel spirit creatures in any way is thus extremely dangerous!
