Christian Astrology?

My mother sent me the most intriguing video, a possible Christian explanation of astrology that I just had to share here with you. I pick only one nit with this fellow, and that is that I believe the Hebrews learned about astrology (and carried away many other things) from the Babylonians, rather than the other way around. I agree with the essence of this lecture however, and applaud this pastor for his studies of astrology.

Update: As of February 22, I can no longer find the video on the site where it first appeared. I hope that this does not reflect censorship on the part of Tangle, the Christian site where this video appeared. The only videos I can find there now are decidedly negative about astrology. A true shame if that site is censoring its contributors this way ... if anyone has seen that video on YouTube or the like, let me know so we can embed it here again.

I thought those were pretty cool too! I have known for a very long time much of what you outline in your site, but did not pursue it myself because as I am an outsider to Christianity now, I felt it might be seen as an attack on the faith. I had no idea that there was any movement within Christianity to accept astrology, never mind welcome it. I think this is delightful and wish you much success with your efforts. I am adding a new section to our links - Christianity and Astrology!
