Should Christians study the stars?
I would like to get your feedback of Gen 1:14 – ..let them be for signs. And also knowing David was a star gazer and Solomon knew there was a time for everything under the sun. The planets and stars (sun)relates to time. Also Daniel being the chief over the astrologers. My point is, why can’t christian obtain the wisdom of the timing like solomon but not use it for evil or to plan your daily lives. I am a strong believer of Rom 8:28, we need to go through trials and not avoid our dissapointments with the use of an astrologer. We should use the signs of the stars to see whats coming whereby being better prepared to seek God’s help to see us through. I believe the pagans learned astrology from fallen angels, and I also believe the good angels have the same knowledge and more but this knowledge was left out of the Bible from the pope at the time who obviously was in charge of the King James Authority. All knowledge is like a two edged sword, its what we use it for, we’ll be judged by. So let’s just do good with ALL knowledge we can acquire
We would all acknowledge that the moon has tremendous influence with our lives- A time to plant, harvest for best results etc to avoid pest & rot. Also when to have surgery to avoid excess bleeding. Most women mensturation and child delivery(and menopause) varies with the moon based on they time of birth. So thats just the moon what about the influences of other planets. Scripture tells us in Job 38: 12-13 NEV ..and shake the dog star from its place – this refers to the star the Egyptians observed to know when the Nile would flood. Job 38: 31-33 …Knowest the ordinances of heaven.. Judges 5:20 God sets the times; astrologers and prophets read the clock, call the hour, and sound the alarm

Beliefs in astrology and supernatural beings are related. I personally think they’re equally implausible.
Examples of biblical references to astrology seem to be:
Genesis 1:14 says “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: “.
And in Job 38:31 it says “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion “.
Matthew 2:1-2 says “there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.”
However, Astrology was the forerunner of the modern science of Astronomy. Superstition often survives, despite increases in knowledge.

Yes. How can such a complex and well-designed universe have been created by some magic giant in the sky instead of being formed within the logical laws of physics?

Don’t confuse astronomy with astrology.
Studying the stars in the universe that the Grand Creator made is fine.
Trying to assign meaning to the lining up of stars and using that information to try to make predictions is wrong – that is spiritism and is denounced in the bible.
Answer by lazyslacker013
Well, I agree christians should look to the stars but not to predict daily life. It is useful for judging the tides but otherwise astronomy should trump astrology. Got to look out for those meteors that could crash into earth. There is also the eventual need for space colonization as predicted that the meek shall inherit the earth (jk I know that’s out of context) so the fit, intelligent ones will leave for greener pastures at some point, hopefully taking the word with them evangelically.
Consider that there is no prohibition for seers and soothsayers unless they are trying to lead you away from God.

Studying the stars is fascinating, and if you are interested in how it possibly relates to the Bible and Biblical prophecy, you should check out the book Witness of the Stars by E.W. Bullinger. Be careful, however, either when learning on your own or reading books on the topic, that you understand where truth and knowledge really come from. God has given us the Bible as our authority. People didn’t always have the Bible – and I think that is quite possibly a reason why God gave men the stars for signs. But we have the Bible now, and that is where we find our truth – not in astrology or by trying to find an interpretation for the stars.
