    no, it’s all bogus…the fortune teller leads the person on, and your gf probably indicated she likes you, and so the fortune teller just told her what she wants to hear

    it might become true, but not because the fortune teller told us – there is no way to predict the future

    A fortune teller told me that believing in fortune telling is retarded.

    I used to read Tarot; plot astrological charts; read palms.

    But I had come from a superstitious family

    I first ditched it because I found that the people who bought my services gained nothing of value through my readings

    I then read up and reflected on the service I had given – I discovered it was just cold reading (as is all fortune telling)

    As to those who say “not even fortune tellers take it seriously”, this is not true. I was mortified when I discovered I have been conning people. It put me through a crisis. It did, however, make me examine more closely the concepts of ‘free will and determination’, ‘fate’, ‘destiny’, etc. and led me to the conclusion that we make our own futures.

    This in turn led me to become a counsellor, a therapist and a life coach. These skills really do help people gain control of their lives. Counselling and therapy release a person from the ‘drag anchor’ of the past, life coaching releases to options of the future.

    No, The Bible strongly condemns spiritism, mediums, the occult, and psychics (Leviticus 20:27; Deuteronomy 18:10-13). Horoscopes, tarot cards, astrology, fortune tellers, palm readings, and séances fall into this category as well. These practices are based on the concept that there are gods, spirits, or deceased loved ones that can give advice and guidance. These “gods” or “spirits” are demons (2 Corinthians 11:14-15). The Bible gives us no reason to believe that deceased loved ones can contact us. If they were believers, they are in heaven enjoying the most wonderful place imaginable in fellowship with a loving God. If they were not believers, they are in hell, suffering the un-ending torment for rejecting God’s love and rebelling against Him.

    So, if our loved ones cannot contact us, how do mediums, spiritists, and psychics get such accurate information? There have been many exposures of psychics as frauds. It has been proven that psychics can gain immense amounts of information on someone through ordinary means. Sometimes by just using a telephone number through caller ID and an internet search, a psychic can get names, addresses, dates of birth, dates of marriage, family members, etc. However, it is undeniable that psychics sometimes know things that should be impossible for them to know. Where do they get this information? The answer is from Satan and his demons. “And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve” (2 Corinthians 11:14-15). Acts 16:16-18 describes a fortune teller who was able to predict the future until the apostle Paul rebuked a demon out of her.

    Satan pretends to be kind and helpful. He tries to appear as something good. Satan and his demons will give a psychic information about a person in order to get that person hooked into spiritism, something that God forbids. It appears innocent at first, but soon people can find themselves addicted to psychics and unwittingly allow Satan to control and destroy their lives. Peter proclaimed, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). In some cases, the psychics themselves are deceived, not knowing the true source of the information they receive. Whatever the case and wherever the source of the information, nothing connected to spiritism, witchcraft, or astrology is a godly means of discovering information. How does God want us to discern His will for our life? God’s plan is simple, yet powerful and effective: study the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and pray for wisdom (James 1:5).

    Do I believe that there’s a practice called “Fortune Telling”? Yes, it’s about as old as humanity itself.

    It doesn’t matter though, because Lightning From the East just posted an answer, and will use his vote bots to give himself “best answer” as always.

    No. Don’t take it seriously. Fortune tellers don’t even take it seriously. They just use tricks and leading questions to tell customers what they want to hear and make money.

    No. It’s just a way for con artists to scam the gullible. There will always be snake oil salespeople if people want to buy snake oil.

    The future is not yet determined.

    I think it’s possible. They do have a funny way of knowing everything that’s going on in your life. Although, a lot of that can be read from how you conduct yourself. I think many fortune tellers are just masters at reading people.

    I would love to hear how the fortune teller was able to get your name out of your gf.

    I find it rather funny that people are rejecting religion but latching on to vampires, werewolves, astrology and fortunetellers as if they are more real than God.

    Fortune tellers are a dime a dozen and you have to be careful.

    1. Some are legit but most are scam artists looking to make a buck. It can be easy to get a name just from your girlfriend. You weren’t there so you don’t know how much info she gave away without knowing it.

    2. When tarot or palm reading (or any other divination) is done you need to remember that the “forecast” is only good for the path that the individual is on now. It can all change with one tiny thing and none of it (or part of it) only be true. Nothing is written in stone, if it was there would be no free will. Who wants a life where they know exactly what will happen and when? That’s too boring!

    WHEN SATAN WAS CAST OUT OF HEAVEN, HE TOOK A THIRD OF THE ANGELS WITH THEM. THOSE ANGELS/DEMONS HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE FOREVER, THE FORTUNE TELLERS GET THEIR “GIFT” FROM CONSULTING WITH DEMONS. ALL THROUGH THE BIBLE IT TALKS ABOUT SORCERY, WITCHCRAFT AND THE LIKE ARE FROM THE DEVIL. I USED TO BE IN AWE BUT KNOWING WHERE THEY COME FROM I DONT MESS WITH THAT STUFF ANYMORE.
