The OP states: "Before I start, I would like to mention that I DO NOT believe in Astrology…whatsoever."
WOW! I have heard several people say these same words, when they admit to reading their Horoscope each day in the newspaper.
“It’s just Fun to see how wrong it is.”
“I read it, and follow the opposite path.”
One does not need to BELIEVE in Astrology to be violating God’s TOTAL Ban on Astrology.
God, many times, warns His people to stay completely away from Horoscopists, and Astrology in general.
So, for a Christian, he should know that God absolutely does not him to use Astrology as a Muse.
Next OP states :** “Now, my main issue here is, would it be sinful to use Astrology as an [artistic] topic even if you don’t believe in it?”**
Well, God has stated clearly that Human Beings should stay away Astrology.
When a person chooses to use symbols of Banned things, that sounds a bit off-center.
So, an artist finds beauty in the Nazi Swastika. It is pretty. It inspires this artist, BUT (even though God hasn’t banned it) it can twist people’s minds.
I am a Visual Arts student, and I’ve decided to make my theme the [Astrological] signs (Libra, Scorpio, etc.) … Because I find it to be an interesting creative influence.**
It would be REAL nice if you could find a non-Banned area to find your inspiration.
If you choose to think that, by dancing around the edges of Astrology, that you are receiving Christian inspiration … well, Go for it.
It seems like you started this Thread to elevate your Astrological inspirations into a (somehow) Christian burst of passion for your artwork.
If you have already decided to use Astrology in your art, then why tell us?
Art is (usually) very personal.
And then, for good measure, the OP again makes his disclaimer: "Please take note once again that the reason why I am doing this is not because I believe in Astrology, but because of art. And NO, I do not “worship” art. It is merely an interest for me.
If this is True, why do you keep repeating it over and over again?
Do you think if you say it often enough, that it will convince us that you do not believe in Astrology?
