Cross My Heart!

When I was young, I had no real Christian upbringing, so a lot of the world’s positions on life were what I held as my own. I was heavily involved in Horoscope readings, not only reading my own horoscope predictions, but going so far as to read them for others. I wouldn’t even date a girl until I read whether the “stars” held we were compatible. I was also incredibly superstitious and I even took that to an extreme. Whether it was “knock on wood,” “don’t walk under a ladder,” or “never open an umbrella inside,” I accepted every superstition as the gospel. After giving my life to Christ, I still held on to some of these ridiculous pagan beliefs until a pastor friend explained either I trusted in God, or I trusted in witchcraft and make-believe. There simply was no middle ground. Today, I won’t even cross my fingers and hope for something–it’s either worthy of prayer, or I don’t worry about it! If you’ve never considered that superstitions, horoscopes, fortune-tellers and the like go against your Christian faith, then let me be the first to tell you they do. Root them out wherever and whenever you find them. God hates it when you put your trust in make-believe Gods. “Now [King] Ahaziah had fallen through the lattice of his upper room in Samaria and injured himself. So he sent messengers, saying to them, ‘Go and consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, to see if I will recover from this injury.’ But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, ‘Go up and meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and ask them, “Is it because there is no god in Israel that you are going off to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron?” Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘You will not leave the bed you are lying on. You will certainly die!'” 2 Kings 1:2-4a In Christ, PastorJimKilby @Kilbin8er
