Is getting a psychic reading/palm reading a sin?

I'm vacationing for spring break and I keep seeing signs for psychic readings and palm readings. I am wondering if it would be sinful to get one just for fun.

Normally, I just go with my gut (and the Bible) when I am wondering if something is sinful or not. But in this case, I'm not getting a clear answer.

This is probably pointless to say now, but there are no synch people as psychics. God wouldn't give us that power and Patrick Jane explains that they're frauds. Even if he is a fictional character, he's probably right. Psychics don't act like angels, they don't send you messages from God. Like I say, not even God can predict the future, where in the Bible does it say that?

God is God above all other gods. Any powers outside of God are of the devil. If this psychic is a prophet/prophetess of God, that's a different story, but if this person is simply asking the "spirits" that he/she doesn't know much about, then they as well as you are playing with fire. If you want answers, you should ask God and perhaps seek counsel from a brother or sister in Christ. There are no other shortcuts my friend. Hope that helps.

I wouldn't ask God, you'd get a 5% chance for an answer…

I think it's better to stay away from that type of thing. Generally the are two types of people of are involved with that types of thing. The first are fakes who tell you what they think you want to hear. There are also some who listen to spirts, (aka demons) that may give a little truth to help you swallow a big lie. Their purpose is to take your sight off of God and onto other things.
Typically, a true prophet or prophetess, would hear direct from God, and would not have to touch you, read cards or stars. They just say what God tells them.
Hope I don't sound harsh, I just believe better safe than sorry. God bless.

No, getting a reading isn't sinful at all. If you believe it has power and/or meaning, then it is sinful.

I just stay away from that. I was brought up with a metaphysical aunt and they drug me around places and were open to just about anything: astrology -getting chars done and read, numerology, targot cards...

Actually it is in the Bible about soothsayers and divination (which is purposefully foretell the future). I am sorry I cannot quote or tell you where to find or properly direct you. The Bible also talks about the devil being 99% truth at times and 1% lie in order to deceive or lure (as the father of lies he is good at that art). The Bible talks about false prophets saying that you should test the spirits against the word of God and if someone is incorrect even once - they are false & if a person is from God/of God then what they tell will never go against any of God's character or word.

I feel better staying COMPLETELY away.

Depends on how you define 'sin.' If you define it as 'anything the bible says is wrong' than yes. But then you should be sure to never back-sass your parents, never wear clothes made of two kinds of material, never eat sea-food or pork, never argue, never baptize babies (or go to the baptism of a baby, because then you're abetting), and be sure to always help the needy.

If you're not comfortable getting a palm reading, don't get one. If you can justify getting one (like you justify many of the things you do that I mentioned above), and you want one, then get one.

If you believe or not, I never charge for my readings, the Answers don"t come from me to begin with. If you personally think its sinful. Then do yourself a favour and don"t do it.
