This video was both humorous and sad at the same time.
Please use the Bible for building knowledge of the Bible and Spiritual Discernment, not a dust collector.

Are There any Pastors Who Still Read and Teach the Bible?
Some Pastors out there do not study the Bible! Worse yet, most don’t pass on any good knowledge on their flock they just pass heresy to them.
That is sad!
What is that you say? Christ Alignment sounds like some sort of new age attempt to hybrid the evils of the New Age with Christianity, Sad but true!
Tarrot Readings at Christian services?
Well Not Exactly…
Christ-Alignment is a heretical theory used by a group of New Agers pretending to be Christians.
They are supported by the false teacher pastors at the fake Church: Bethel Church in Redding, CA.
This comes as no surprise considering their senior pastor embraces just about everything but the Christian faith…
What? Necromancy and Sorcery promoted by a Christian Organization?
Well… Not Exactly.
Six or seven Bethel Pastors and Michael Brown all actively speaking out in favor of Christ Alignment and Divinity cards. Also, their son, Ben Fitzgerald a pastor and missionary from Bethel also speaks in favor of his mother and father’s group…
You might remember him from his younger grave sucking necromancer days.
They also go to Festivals, Flea markets, and other places as “psychics” (They say are Undercover “Christians).
However, what they are is deceivers.
What are Christ-Alignment and destiny cards? Editors Note:***We do not normally link to websites that are run by heretics and false teachers but there is no way to explain this really without showing it.
Christ-Alignment destiny cards graphic by Matt Slick 1/10/2018 Christ-Alignment is a New Age practice that uses a form of tarot cards, called destiny cards, to obtain a spiritual reading.
It is an occult practice and is spiritually very dangerous. These cards have pictures on them, some with biblical themes, and they are used in a prophetic sense.
The practitioners seek to learn about a person’s future; hence, the term destiny cards.
It is not Biblical and should be avoided by all true Christians.
On the Christ-Alignment website, there are plenty of pictures depicting people in mystical-type garb, sitting at tables, cards between people, getting readings, etc.
I’ve been to many New Age websites to do research and their appearance and vocabulary are identical to this New Age thought.
Typical of many New Age-type philosophies are spiritual realms, heavenly realms, levels of consciousness, spiritual cleansing, Christ consciousness, dream interpretations, meditation, etc.
Open sex orgies, nakedness, and drugs allowed at “Christian” meetings?
Again… Well not exactly!
All you have to do is go to their website to view images of naked women dancing, laying on the ground half naked with men surrounding them and women with their tops off getting body paint.
The practitioners of Christ-Alignment are involved with many of these practices such as dream interpretation, mind-body festivals, third heaven encounters, spiritual cleansing, physical healing, relationship recovery, and henna art.
“We call our artists prophetic, that means that as intuitive readers themselves, and artists able to connect with a spirit, their artwork carries meaning and power to change lives. Each painting has been done through connection to the third heaven realm.”
“We do not interpret black and white dreams as these are coming to you from a much lower realm.” “All Christ-Alignment team members operate only out of the Third Heaven realm. This ensures safety for you and a higher level of accuracy.”
That means that we are all hearing from Christ’s spirit. Christ’s Spirit on might ask? I’ve heard of the Holy Spirit but never “Christ’s Spirit.”
Makes you wonder how many deceiving demonic spirits these people communicate with.
(There is no doubt, they are listening to spirits. However, It is not the Holy Spirit!)
Have these people never read the Old Testament? The Old Testament tells us in several places that we are not to communicate with Spirits.
Since these people never speak from the Bible, we will, in 1 Samuel 28:16-19 we discover that the Lord had already told Saul that he was going to be removed from his kingdom and replaced, Now Samuel tells him that he and Jonathon are going to join him in death by the next day. Saul lost his divine placement of God as the king of Israel because he worked through the Witch of Endor to communicate with the spirit of the dead prophet Samuel and he and Jonathon were killed by the Phillistines a short time later..
Editor’s Note:*** The Christ-Alignment movement uses “Destiny cards”. If you look at them, even someone without experience with Spiritual Discernment can tell they are Tart cards with scriptures on them. Which means they are faking Christianity and using demons as spirit guides. Does this even remotely sound like something that God would sign off on?
Their leader goes on to say, “Our unique destiny cards, which we have developed, are so accurate, that even if your life circumstances change dramatically, on your return to have your reading even years later, you will find the results identical, such is their accuracy.
They (as in the spirit guides, in reality, demons) can give profound insight into relationships, career, and spiritual life. Destiny Cards are for guidance, advice, and information to make your journey through life happier, more peaceful, and more productive.
They will help you get an answer to problems, guidance on decisions, advice on which way to turn, or lessons for the year, month, week, day, or just for the moment.” This website has a sampling of some of the cards.
There are a variety of cards they use to do readings.
Color cards are used to enhance reading using colored agate stones. They believe the colors have meaning, especially when they are in their enhanced dreams.
Animal Card Readings are also something that the Christ Conscience group uses. In this process, there are methods to visualize encounters with various animals which are supposed to have special meanings to the individual practicing this method.
Psalm Card Readings (Poor King David is probably rolling over in his grave at the thought of this.) Only three cards are used in this reading method that are intended to represent the past, present, and future of individuals.
None of this reeks of Communicating with Spirits and Tarot cards to no one else?
Unfortunately, far too many Christian churches are falling for this garbage, unfortunately, because much of what is passing today for the Christian church is not truly Christian these days, and if they are, their Pastors and leaders discernment skills are non-existent. There have been several false teachers masquerading as Pastors at Bethel who have spoken out positively about this group’s activities. Of course, it is no surprise since the couple that founded Christ Alignment, are the parents of one of Bethel’s false teachers masquerading as Pastors.
Not too surprisingly Michael Brown the Apostle of Obfuscation stumbles over his tongue as he tries to come up with Biblical writings to make this look like authentic Christianity.
They often dabble in occult practices to achieve a higher spiritual reality-whatever that might mean.
Following is a list of some of the articles dealing with the infiltration of destiny cards into Bethel Church in Redding.
If there is any doubt about whether real Born Again Bible Believing Christians are to dabble in Tarot cards or Communicating with Spirits…
Let us remember King Saul and also the very plain easy to understand words of Paul in several places in his Epistles, and Deuteronomy 18:10-11
