Psychics and Religion
i think it would be interesting to go talk to a psychic just to see what they would have to say about what is going on in my life recently; some pretty big issues i've been having trouble with...but, since i'm Catholic, i'm not sure if it's seen as "okay" i guess. i don't know much about psychics. any religious people's opinions or anyone else?
My tendency is not to trust them, so I don't know what to tell you. I'm not even talking about whether they can see the future or whatever it is they say they do. I would just not talk about my confidential details with a stranger.
Whatever you're going through, I hope you can find a way to think about it that helps you. Maybe some of the other wise folk on her will have helpful ideas about how you seek advice or insight.
If you want to follow your faith's guidelines, the Bible does forbid going to fortune tellers. (Isaiah 8:19-20, Deuteronomy 18:10-13) Mainly the point is to trust God, not try to see what's going to happen. Also because a psychic may be in contact with demonic "advisors".
I believe in a spiritual world, where demons and angels are fighting a whole war beyond our knowledge. Perhaps a psychic isn't a fake and really does hear someone talking to them--is it a power for good or evil? Who knows? I don't mess with things that I don't understand, and I believe we're not meant to.
that's what i thought although i couldn't remember. i wouldn't say i'm looking for guidance, i do trust God, but i guess its just curiosity. oh well.

That probably makes sense Toni.
If the psychic is charging you for the privilege, I certainly wouldn't bother.
A lot of people learned this the hard way from Miss Cleo's Hotline scam.
One does not need to believe that psychics are talking to demons to be wary of them.

Psychics run afoul of this world's laws very frequently.
I would avoid them, especially if they are not offering their services for free.
