Sermon No: 40113-CAN THE STARS BE USED TO TELL THE FUTURE
SERMON TOPIC: CAN THE STARS BE USED TO TELL THE FUTURE
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 21 September 2018
Topic Groups: ASTROLOGY, FALSE RELIGION, OCCULT
What does the Bible say about astrology, the zodiac and divination in general? What do we make of the Magi who saw Jesus' star in the East? Can the stars be used to foretell the future, or is this to be avoided - together with the other forbidden occult practices?
Gen 1:14 “And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.”
Some have taken the above verse to indicate a tacit approval of astrology in Scripture. Others assert that while modern astrology is a corruption of something originally good, God has written the gospel story in the zodiac.
