The Science of Astrology?


Bryant Wright advises us to not look to the stars but to look to the book. The Bible has key answers to your life, and you can discover them by having a personal relationship with the God who created the stars.

And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the Lord your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven. - Deuteronomy 4:19 niv

I've often wondered this about astrology: How do they know? Let’s assume, for the sake of discussion, that when the moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with Mars, then everyone born under the sign of Aquarius actually will lose their car keys. I mean, who figured this out? Did someone take a detailed survey for each astrological sign concerning exact events that occurred under every possible star alignment? And how did this person get hold of a computer big enough to digest all this data . . . especially thousands of years ago when astrology was first practiced? I don’t mean to mock (okay, maybe I do), but somebody please explain to me how these “facts” were discovered and compiled.

Of course, no one has an intelligent explanation. These mystic readings are just futile attempts by searching people looking for answers.

But I have good news for these people. The Bible has key answers to your life, and you can discover them by having a personal relationship with the God who created all those stars. Wouldn’t you rather listen to the One who actually created them? He is the only One who really knows the future. His Word reveals quite a few insights about where the world is headed and how to be prepared for the future. So don’t look to the stars. Look to the Book!
