Question:

Is it OK to believe in the zodiac, at least partially? I know that not everything relates to it or that it describessomeone's character, but some of that information seems too realistic. Is this some kind of tool the Devil uses to get us to believe in his lies and not the real Truth that lives in Christ? Or is there some kind of astrological connection to the Bible and its history?

Thank you for taking the time to read each of our questions and thoroughly answer them with backup evidence from the Bible! May you always be blessed from above!


Answer:

If you look at the definition of astrology in the dictionary, you will almost answer your question by yourself. Webster defines astrology as: "A pseudoscience claiming to foretell the future by studying the influence of the relative positions of the moon, sun, and stars on human affairs."

The zodiac are symbols used to interpret and organize the astrological charts. It is all actually idol worship.I am sure you realize that idolatry is an abomination before God. It only seems realistic because the statements are purposely vague to allow many interpretations.

The Devil does use these types of traps to get us to sin. He wraps it up with humanistic feelings and vague innuendos. We all would love to know what the future holds, but none of us can. God only selected a few prophets to foretell of events in the future,and this was to work for His glory and proof of who He is.

You are correct in stating that Jesus has the only truth to be learned and followed. "Stand now with your enchantments and the multitude of your sorceries, in which you have labored from your youth -- perhaps you will be able to profit, perhaps you will prevail. You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; let now the astrologers, the stargazers, and the monthly prognosticators stand up and save you from what shall come upon you. Behold, they shall be as stubble, the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame; it shall not be a coal to be warmed by, nor a fire to sit before! Thus shall they be to you with whom you have labored, your merchants from your youth; they shall wander each one to his quarter. No one shall save you" (Isaiah 47:12-15).

I hope this helps you and don't bother with your horoscope or zodiac symbol anymore. Worship God alone.
