"Deuteronomy 18:10 -11-12 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Okay now -- this is where it gets weird. Different systems. Different right and wrong. If I accept the moral precepts set down here, then I get bad karma everytime I use my Tarot cards, seek Spirit Guides, Enchant, and several other things I tend to do regularly. Now, except that my Xtian neighbor says I'm going to Hell -- I don't think that I've received any bad return. (But maybe that's why I'm not rich yet... heh heh).
So is ours really a system of running up a lot of bad karma until you figure out what it's worth it to do, and what is too costly? I ask this seriously. Because karmic return seems so elusive at times. Lately, although I personally find the concept that "Might Makes Right," abhorrent -- it seems to be the case in that you can say -- fabricate a lie to start a war, and as long as you are powerful enough to win -- it's okay.
So then -- are actions condemned by Deuteronomy not wrong if bad karma times seven doesn't come back to you? Is it the same for lying to start a war? For eating factory farmed meat?
