The Genius of Ancient Man teaches the Axiom that Satan is incapable of creating anything (Axioms section, page 100). He can only pervert that which God has already designed. In fact, it is his aim to distort anything and everything that God has planned and created. Therefore, when we see a great distortion, we can discern there must be a great truth worth distorting.
So it is with the stars. In chapter four, The Genius of Ancient Man presents a brief overview of Satan’s counterfeit of God’s work in the heavens (page 35). The stars have been used for horoscopes, astrology, false worship and telling the future, but these were not their intended purpose. They are a part of God’s creation and they declare His glory. The existences of such anti-God perversions involving the stars hints to us the existence of a pure and beautiful purpose for which God designed them. Here we would like to explore God’s purpose for the stars in more detail.
