The Danger of Horoscopes

As people prepare for a new year, many will seek guidance in their spiritual lives in horoscopes, psychic advisors, and all manner of foolishness. The Bible warns us of being spoiled by the “rudiments of the world” (Colossians 2:8). These rudiments include things which occur sequentially in nature, such as the periodic alignment of the stars, planets, and the moon.

Believers on the Lord Jesus Christ should not meddle with mystical or occult practices. We trust in Christ, and Christ alone, for the salvation of our eternal souls. What idiocy it would be to seek counsel or advice by any means other than Biblically-sanctioned doctrine.
