Can I admit to you that I sometimes get astrology and astronomy mixed up? That is why I normally steered clear of the subject – any of them — in my homeschool. Knowledge truly is freeing. When you realize that one of these glorifies God and the other is against Him, you will want to find out more.
Take a moment to learn why Christians should know the difference between astronomy and astrology. One of them attempts to explain human things with stars; the other points to God’s perfect creation – very different.
My daughter and I were talking one day and she said her “friends” were telling her about their “zodiac signs”. She said they just explained, “personalities and stuff”. I almost jumped out of my seat and said, “THAT’S DEMONIC!”
OK, I could have handled that differently. Overreaction happens with me at times. I had to explain what zodiac signs were and what astrology was. I never thought I would have to explain that to my kid at 12 years old!
Astrology is the study of the star. In astrology is believed that positions of the stars, and their relationships to one another, impact or predict life here on earth.
Astronomy, on the other hand, is the law of the stars. It is an observation science by which one examines how the heavens look and how heavens move in the night skies.
It is important for our children to understand the difference between the two.
