"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Psalm 19: Tehillim l'El Elyon

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament tells of His handiwork.

Got up at 04:00 to go out in the backyard and lay down to watch some of the Perseid meteor shower.  There were a few really great streaks across the sky.  Pretty nice, considering we are in the mountains and surrounded by trees.  We can see barely 40% of the sky.

I wish I could remember more about what I've learned of the stars.  The gospel story is in the stars. That's what Genesis 15:5,6 is really all about. (Cross reference Galatians 3). The zodiac and astrology are a corruption of that gospel message, and so it is difficult to get believers to understand that God put his gospel message in the stars. Most people are unaware that prior to the first century, many synagogues were built by the Jews with the "zodiac" symbols in mosaic form in the floor.  They understood the 12 constellations to be representative of the 12 tribes of Israel.

Because there is much to understand, much has been misunderstood.  What a shame.
