Today, Scripture points are shared specifically forbidding worship of the sun, moon, and planets.  Because they are also called the host of heaven, many confuse the astronomical bodies with the holy angels, who are also called “stars” and “the heavenly host.”  Those who properly understand and practice the sacred law, recognize that the same principles and rules that forbid exalting divinely created beings, living creatures, and physical objects appearing in the sky (including asteroids, cloud formations, comets, constellations, falling stars, galaxies, meteors, and nebulae) also extend to terrestrial and earthly bodies (including the errors of worshiping breast size, skin color (we say, lightness, pigment, race, tan), gender, genitals, or acts of fornication as with nymphomania, penis envy, sexual addiction, and worship of the lingam and yoni, the womb and phallus).  Believers in GOD are to avoid all disproportion, exaggeration and imbalance for things carnal, material, social and psychological that contend against conviction, faith, divine law, and Spirit.  All the covenant agreements and sacred law from divinity require devotion and worship be only to the true and living GOD.  One of the fighters at “Yahoo!

If God created the Sun, why is sun worship wrong?

If God created the universe and all of the planets in it.. why is it wrong to worship the biggest planet that gives us light if we are aware that god made it..how is that wrong?

And what consitutes as worship?

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.  And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.  And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.  Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,  And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down:  for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee:  and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.  Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.  Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;  And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.  Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan:  for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.  Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.  (Matthew 4:  1-11, KJV)

“Anonymous”, some of the most serious admonitions and warnings from the holy writings pertain to the wrath of GOD against giving glory to idols that is properly due to Deity, and  worship promoting false gods.  Here are a few of the answers shared among those taking responsibility as Christian believers, who acknowledge GOD by obedience to the spirit of his word, and rely upon sacred responses published from GOD as aspects of full divine revelation:

(1.)  Exodus 20:  2-4, King James Version (KJV):  2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.  4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

(2.)  Deuteronomy 4:  15-19, KJV:  15 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:  16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,  17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,  18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:  19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

(3.)  Deuteronomy 17:  2-5, KJV:  2 If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant,  3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;  4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:  5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

(4.)  Ezekiel 8:  15-17, KJV:  15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.  16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.  17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger:  and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

(5.)  Jeremiah 8:  1-3, KJV:  1 At that time, saith the LORD, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves:  2 And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped:  they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.  3 And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the LORD of hosts.

(6.)  Job 31:  24-28, KJV:  24 If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence;  25 If I rejoice because my wealth was great, and because mine hand had gotten much;  26 If I beheld the sun when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness;  27 And my heart hath been secretly enticed, or my mouth hath kissed my hand:  28 This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge:  for I should have denied the God that is above.

There is far more that could be said, and that must be correctly understood and spiritually taken into account.  (For example (7.)  Romans 1:  20-25, KJV:  20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,  23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.  24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
