Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Does believing in horoscopes qualify as a sin in the Roman Catholic Religion?

If I were to believe in horoscopes does that mean that I am defying God? Or is it simply another tool of conveying God’s message?

Answer by cheir
It’s a nonsense and in religious terms idolatry.

Answer by PeacetolPackinPreacher
It violates a Biblical Commandment.

Answer by Jeff M
According to The Word, it is a sin. Doesn’t matter what “church”, God’s Word is the only thing that counts.

Answer by Maars
Don’t know about the Catholics but it’s taboo with the Pentecostals, an absolute no no! It’s a type of witchcraft.

Answer by Gorgeoustx Go Spurs Go!
I don’t see how it could be considered a sin because it is possible that the knowledge we can gain from the planets could be a part of God’s plan for the universe.

Anyway, horoscopes are innocuous and far too vague to be of any real authority.

It is hilarious that the fundies fear horoscopes.

NEWSFLASH, Lorie, Catholics ARE Christians!!!! lol!

Answer by gustvh2001
it means that you are a sinner and that you are using astronomy and you are in danger of GOD’S judgment and in the catholic church it is a heresy are are to be excommunicated

Answer by moon sugar vehk
horoscopes are astronomy a thing the church considers a “pseudo science” (fake science). it might not so much be a sin but the church cautions you away from this type of thing. the real truth comes from God and the bible not random assumptions made from the stars.

Answer by Lorie
Well, yes it is a sin to them because they think it’s coming from an evil source and not from “God”.

It does not make you any less of a christian though. Catholics have very strict beliefs. I would consider you more of a christian than Catholic if you believe in Jesus.

Hope this helps.

Answer by Knowledge Seeker
I certainly don’t understand it. After all, there are three major systems of astrology which produce horoscopes, each producing results which contradict the other two. So which one of the three makes sense and represents “truth”?

And if you CAN determine which one represents “truth”, how do you deal with the fact that the Bible denounces all reliance on divination and soothsaying?

But seeing how there is zero evidence that ANY horoscope system actually produces valid results, why would you want to place any reliance on such?

Frankly, there are many proverbs from the Bible which call upon the fool to “forsake his folly”. The command is necessary because humans tend to pursue that which is foolish. If at least two out of three astrological horoscopes (if not three out of three) is invalid, then it is foolishness. Is that not a sufficient answer on its own?

Answer by Ellen Etc.
If you belong to a particular religion, ask your minister (or equivalent) for their answer. So ask a priest. Or ask several priests. You will probably get different perspectives, some of which will be their own personal opinions, and some will be the official position of the church.

You might also find it interesting to ask people of different faiths.

I am Unitarian Universalist and Zen Buddhist. Some UUs find astrology useful, but I would guess most find it a fun party game. This is pretty close to my opinion of astrology — however, I do find I am a bit superstitious about it anyway!

It’s doubtful that Zen Buddhism would have any official position on astrology, since it doesn’t contribute to the ideal of “awakening” (experiencing life directly without the layer of preconceived ideas or inherited beliefs getting in the way).

Believing in horoscopes Catholic Religion or not is absolutely forbidden by God, yes it is definately wrong.

Answer by Kitus Maximus
Horoscopes are as fake as your religion.

Answer by Dave W
In many cases it is wrong, as astrology cannot predict the future.

Answer by Daver
By believing in hororscopes, you run the risk Divination. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches:

2116 All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.

2138 Superstition is a departure from the worship that we give to the true God. It is manifested in idolatry, as well as in various forms of divination and magic.

2117 All practices of magic or sorcery, by which one attempts to tame occult powers, so as to place them at one’s service and have a supernatural power over others – even if this were for the sake of restoring their health – are gravely contrary to the virtue of religion. These practices are even more to be condemned when accompanied by the intention of harming someone, or when they have recourse to the intervention of demons. Wearing charms is also reprehensible. Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices; the Church for her part warns the faithful against it. Recourse to so-called traditional cures does not justify either the invocation of evil powers or the exploitation of another’s credulity.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Is there any nutrition in an artichoke or the canned hearts?

Heyy, I love artichokes to death but since I can’t find good ones a lot, I eat the canned hearts a lot, in pasta, with cheese or just on their own, mmmmmmmm, delicious! But I read the nutrition facts on the back of the can yesterday, and there doesn’t seem to be anything of nutritional value in them. So my question is, does anyone know of the positives of eating artichokes/canned artichoke hearts, or are they just empty calories? Thank you so much! <3

Answer by Columbushere
The the nutritional panel leaves you kind of wondering what you are really eating, because it mentions fat, calories, sodium, fiber, sugar and not too much more.

Fresh are hard to find, they are sometimes pricey, and need some prep work before you can eat them. So this makes canned more appealing.

The nutritional label shows you that artichokes are low in saturated fat, cholesterol and high in dietary fiber. It doesn’t show you that they are high vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, niacin, vitamin B6,iron and phosphorus.

It does point out that they are high in salt from the canning process. You may want to look into frozen artichokes, and check the sodium content. A lot of frozen foods are loaded with salt too.

My Achilles heel is hearts of palm, in the same section.

Answer by Rebecca S
As you note it kind of depends on the type and serving size of artichoke. Here’s a good list link.

I don’t use any tools although I can use cards if you wish me too. My connection is always given in context and I present evidence all the time. It may be random but it makes sense….
