I was born and raised Baptist now Methodist and I need to know as I am very unsure and don’t want to open the door to witch craft.”
MMA writes: “One of our relatives brings a deck of cards called ‘Trust Your Vibes’ by Sonia Choquette to every family get together. She calls them angel cards & is very insistent about wanting to do cards to “help” everyone. This has been the cause of much anxiety for us. I have already said how I feel about this. Is there any more we can say to her to make it clearer?”
CC writes: “I attended a workshop for early childhood ed and the presenter urged us all to change our curriculums to really emphasize a nature/environmental focus by bringing the outdoors inside and continue with lessons and experiences continuously taking the kids’ lead in areas of interest. She used words like POSITIVE ENGERGY in the classroom and even showed how to arrange it using lights and shadows and organizing materials using specific colors in a color pattern; also bringing in a couch, stones and water fountains instead of tables and desks. I couldn’t stand being there because it felt like a new age atmosphere. We were silent for awhile. She asked us what we thought almost like she was hoping for a positive response. Do I have reason to be concerned or am I overreacting?”
Someone recently wrote to us asking if it’s okay to use a regular deck of cards to tell futures. This person has friends who are described as being “very devoted Catholics” who attend Mass and pray the rosary every day. They have strong faith, but love to read cards and are surprisingly accurate. Is this wrong?
LG asks: “One of my friends is trying to convince me to see a person who can tell the future by scrying. I told her this is against my religion but she said this would just be for fun. Should I take her up on it?”

One of our readers wrote to ask about the practice of Feng Shui and if it is compatible with Christianity.
