Is Divination a sin?

Is Divination a sin? 
Is using divination, more specifically.. rune stones, considered a sin?
 
And can you cite a source that says so?

God of the Old Testament did not say if it is a sin but He specifically do not condone such act as it lead a man to be dependent on the use of divination instead of him using his own skills to walk the path to life.
It also mislead someone to believe in the diviner more rather the God that paved everything for man to lead his own life.

The ability and desire to use any type of divination tool is a gift given by the Creator. How can it be a "sin"? To say that it is indicates that the Creator isn't omnipotent. I work with oracle cards, magic and spirit guides on a regular basis. The interest in these things was the result of a divine plan for my life and I have never felt as alive or contented. My needs are always met, I have immense joy inside of me and the love I have for the Creator is boundless. I see blessings in my life every single day...and yet I use oracle cards as a divination tool to ensure that my choices and actions are in the greatest and highest good.
If reading tarot or runes is supposed to be a "sin", it is only because that errant notion has been forced on us. You would think that if it was displeasing to the Creator, there would be fewer willing to study divination. But that is not the case at all...in fact, there has never been more of an interest in this than in the last half century. I find it ironic that mounting numbers of people are turning from antiquated belief systems to discover their own spirituality, at this time in history, and is hardly coincidental.
With that said, however, if one considers using runes to assist with making life decisions and encounters very negative feelings about it, don't do it. But one has to make that decision based on the relevant informaton at hand, not what has been preached at them with the express purpose of instilling fear.

They're just tools for your spirit to communicate with you. After a while, you don't need the tools any more. You learn the language so to speak. But, tools are fun and are to be used anyway if you wish. It's just you communicating with your higher self. True spirituality. There's nothing your spirit doesn't know.

Have you ever noticed how anything that give the individual power and independence from a hierarchy, is sinful?

Divination isn't a sin for the ethical person who has trained themselves in the art. It is only a sin to the hierarchy that is denied access and the opportunity to manipulate the vulnerable.

Those who use divination to extort funds from the vulnerable, which is much different for being paid for a reading, are committing a crime.  That's a civil matter, not a religious matter.

Divination is exactly not a sin but it is forbidden due to a particular reason. Actually the world is full of people, who don't think that the person who is telling them about future is just a human being. It is by the grace of GOD that the individual seeks divination and he is not himself a GOD or has any relationship with GOD. The people become a follower of that individual and may be that person start thinking himself as a GOD, therefore it is being prevented to be practiced or we can say that it is forbidden.

I don't think its a sin. Its just a gift by God to communicate with yourself.They're just tools for your spirit to communicate with you. Any such tool should be used for the welfare of mankind only otherwise it would cause disturbances.

Casting runes or any other type of divination can not be considered as sin, as these are the vehicles we use to get insight about our current situation. We are basically using our personal power while divining, as the divination means are only a way to interpret what our Higher Self is already trying to communicate with us.

This is fair untill you are not trying to interfere in the work of GOD, if HE want something to remain hidden from you then why are you trying to reveal it. It is not a sin if you are using it to make yourself known to something but when you try to reveal it to others, it becomes a sin.

if you have read somewhere in a bible that 'god' disapproves of some spiritual/metaphysical practice, then you should quote the reference so we can check in our bibles for ourselves.

a lot of people, sects and religions "interpret" what is written to suit their own argument about what is "sin" and what is not. often it's a matter of wanting all followers under the sway of the preacher or religious organisation to refrain from what they think diminishes their control.
if all you see is 'suffering' then that is all you will feel. look for what is better in yourself and see only that.

As long as any specific spiritual practice or beliefs not harming others and use by someone to help others or for his own spiritual development, I don't consider it as a sin or anything wrong in it.

I don't think that divination is a sin, but even I don't like that a person should seek divination. Future is uncertain and we plan our work according to the risks involved in it. This is a natural process and no one should disturb it. This (divination) may be a better way of living, but it involves more risk than we take in our daily life. Its dangerous, therefore it is forbidden, as told earlier by one of our friend.

Hmmm... for this question there may be various answer. And according to me, it totally depends upon our own discretion which to choose and which to not.

in my opinion, divination is not a sin, it's a gift bestowed to that certain individual.  not all of us knows how to read fortunes. its just that we don't have to take these seriously since we don't know exactly everything that's going to happen in our lives. if we are told that we'll get rich and then we don't, we might get depressed. so always believed in yourself and in your abilities.

I don't think about it as a sin. I think its a great path that will enable you to flourish and communicate with hidden energy inside you. Through divination you can easily recognized truth as your heart is open to it.
