India is a country rampant with false religion. While some there bathe in the Gange River wrongly thinking such will result in forgiveness of sins, at least another man has gone in a different direction and taken the darkened advice of an astrologer to marry a dog to get free of a curse and regain his physical health!
God’s Truth or Spiritual Deception
If one doesn’t have the light and truth of the Bible, he will be religiously deceived. The depth of one’s spiritual blindness may vary, but some are obvious and extreme. The man marrying a dog because he listened to an astrologer is an example of how important it is to receive from the right source (the Bible). TRUTH as found in the Bible alone is what people desperately need. It is a matter of life or death.
BTW, it’s too bad the Indian man, who married a dog, didn’t know astrology is condemned by God. In Isaiah’s day, as God was about to pour out his judgment on the sinful, he mentioned what was coming and referred to the sinful who wrongly looked to the astrologers to learn the future:
All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you. Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. Here are no coals to warm anyone; here is no fire to sit by. (Isa 47:13,14)
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. (Psa 1:1,2)
It is very sad to see non-Christian religious people groping in spiritual death and darkness, trying to find help and deliverance through the supernatural, but looking to the wrong source. Often it results in more bondage and slavery to sin, than before. People vitally need the word of God, both the written and living word of God. The Lord Jesus (the living and breathing word of God) is there, commanding all to enter through the narrow gate (Mt. 7:13,14) and openly inviting all who are weary and burdened to come to him to find rest for their soul (Mt. 11:28-30). Dear reader, there is no solid reason why you shouldn’t commit yourself wholeheartedly to do the will of God and humbly submit to follow Jesus? There absolutely is NO Calvinist predestination, as John MacArthur and others teach! No one is predestined by God to listen to an astrologer, marry a dog and die in their sins.
