Why do you say Reiki is Evil? Would'nt the Bible say otherwise?
Tuesday, January 18, 2005
Question:I have been looking at your page. It has made me think alot about things.You say Reiki is occult and therefore is evil but yet if there have been cases of healings and people being cured how could that be evil. What is evil about healing people?Did the Bible not say in Luke 6:44, Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. Jesus therefore said if something in helpful or beneficial in some way, wouldnt that come from God?Reiki isnt about gaining power or control over things for ones personal benefit, but will only work to aid things if they are in God's will.I dont understand your reasoning, Healing is one of the gifts of God according to Corinthians 12: 28.I didnt really believe in God, after taking a reiki class I was reaffirmed in my belief in God and attend mass now and also I read scripture, I dont think without reiki helping me I wouldnt have made these changes for the better.Please awnser all the points I have brought up.Thank you,JacobPeace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.--John 14:27
Question Answered by Bro. Ignatius Mary, OLSM
The Bible says that even Satan can appear as an angel of light.
Just because some people are helped by Reiki does not make it good. In the first place the cures people received could have been accomplished through coincidence or through the placebo effect. That is what scientific study tries to sift out so as to make sure the treatment is really the cause of the healing.
In addition, Satan can effect apparent cures when it serves his purpose to deceive people.
Also, one of the most important tenets of Christianity is that the ends do not justify the means. Even if the result is a good one, we cannot use evil means to gain that good result. Reiki, on its face, is an evil means regardless of what alleged good effect it may produce. The gift of healing in Corinthians is a spiritual gift that comes from God, not Reiki or even from science. It is a spiritual gift.
In terms of the the tree and its fruit, this is a general analogy. Like all analogies there are flaws. In fact it is possible for some bad fruit to be produced by a good tree; and some good fruit to be produced by a bad tree. A bad apple tree may produce a single good apple; and a good apple tree may produce a single rotten apple.
Hitler did a few good things and mostly evil things, yet both the good and the evil came from the same tree.
I praise God that you have returned from Him, but your return to God did not come from Reiki, it came from the grace of God and God's desire to bring goodness out of evil. God brought you back to Him DESPITE the Reiki, not because of it. He took the lemon that is Reiki and made lemonade with it.
You ask what is healing about healing people? It is evil to heal people using ungodly methods.
Embryo Stem Cells may someday be used to heal people, but Embryo Stem Cell research murders babies. That is evil.
Harvesting a person's organs to transplant into another person without the permission of the donor will save the life of the recipient but is evil in that it steals the organ from the donor.
Killing a person to harvest their heart to transplant into another person will heal the person needing the heart, but killing to get the heart is evil.
There are thousands of ways to heal someone through evil ways. the ends do NOT justify the means.
I am glad you are back with God, but for you to be TOTALLY back with God you must renounce Reiki and never do Reiki again or recommend it to others.
God Bless,Bro. Ignatius Mary
