What are your feelings towards religion and astrology?

Can a person that is a Christian for example still be able to believe in astrology or is it a contradiction?

  1. It depends on the Christian themselves. There are many who have no problem with astrology, divination or other new age concepts however, there are just as many churches that believe those things to be evil and against God. So it is possible, yes.

  2. They are both superstitions. If you can believe in one superstition, you can believe in others.
    I don’t believe in any supernatural phenomena.

  3. If you are going to believe in one thing that has no evidence to support it, and is based on fuzzy statements and wishful thinking, why not believe in two?

  4. Astrology can be a fun game, as long as people do not take it too seriously. The same goes for religion, although far too many people take it much too seriously.

  5. I never really believed in astrology.
    However, I think it is an interesting subject.
    And I did back when I was a christian too.
    But anyways.. I was a *very* liberal christian.
    That might be why.
    PS: If you believe in both, then good for you, I’d say! Don’t let people tell you to choose between the two. Whatever makes you happy, go for it.

  6. They are equal in evidentiary foundation and truth value.
    But if you’re combining the two you might want to look into your religion’s view on fortune telling. The Bible for one is not too keen on it.

  7. Both require a lack of understanding of the natural world, they both are ridiculous. Maybe it would be like when the flintstones meet the jetsons

  8. Don’t you have a personal relationship with the Creator of the universe? Ask Him for guidance and have faith. If you do indeed have the insiders access to God remember that it wasn’t free. Remember the cost. Why turn to stars and mediums? They’re the realm of the deceiver.
    Before I knew God I read my horoscope for years. It was never true. I was lied to and I knew it. I even married the correct sign for my sign and it was a huge, ugly mess. God wants His people to turn from their sinful behavior and call to Him for all their needs.
    Deuteronomy 4:19 “And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them, which the LORD your God has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage.”

  9. Can the people who say that christianity forbids astrology provide a reference please. Its the answer I would have expected but it would be nice to know where the ruling comes from.
