  3. Vol.VII No.X Pg.5 December 1970 Im Scorpio Maybe! Robert F. Turner The desire to penetrate the future and influence its events has shown itself in all lands and ages. But it is clear that a knowledge of the future does not lie within the scope of mans natural powers; divination therefore has always been an attempt to gain the help of beings possessing knowledge and power transcending those of man. (See Dan .2:10- 11 rft)... Divination, therefore, in all its forms is but an aspect of polytheism. (many-gods. rft) The above is the opening statement of an article in International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia, under the heading, Astrology. What the writer of this ISBE article sees so clearly, surely my brethren should understand; — and shun the current pagan fad of astrology. This ancient superstition enjoys a tremendous revival in our day, and silly (2 Tim. 3:6) men and women spend hours reading its ambiguous literature. I wonder if they are aware that one of the chief living astrologers said, The TRUE astrologer believes that the sun is the body of the Logos of this solar system, in Him we live and move and have our being. The planets are his angels, being modifications in the consciousness of the Logos. (Knowledge, XXIII, 228; from ISBE, ibid.) Isaiah foretold the destruction of wicked Babylon, chiding them for such trust in sorceries, saying, Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels: let now the astrologers, the star-gazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from the things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them.. . (Isa. 47:12f) As a footnote to the word astrologers the ASV explains, dividers of the heavens. This is a reference to the arrangement of the zodiac, with its stations or houses. Current fascination with astrology does not mean that these devotees are seriously and consciously seeking the message of other gods — in the sense that earlier men believed in gods — for our society is far too atheistic for that. The paganism of our day is not the philosophical seeking after Deity that it was in earlier days — although deluded members of various orders pay lip service to light which their borrowed symbolism is supposed to reveal. But in all of this we see evidence of a generation which has no real chart or compass. True objective faith in Jehovah God, as revealed in Jesus Christ and set forth in the Spirit -inspired word, is no longer regarded as valid or sufficient. Men grope for a firm foundation, grasping straws. The saddest aspect of it all is that people who are supposed to know God are taking part in the vain search. William Barclay says the rudiments of Col. 2:8-10 may refer to elemental spirits of the world, and especially the spirits of the stars and planets. He says that Pauls answer is, You need nothing but Christ to overcome any power in the universe; for in Him is nothing less than the fullness of God; and He is the head of every power and authority for he created them. I say, Amen! Brethren. quit this foolishness!!!
  4. Vol.VII No.X Pg.4 December 1970 Sacerdotalism Robert F. Turner Unless you have done some reading in early church history — something about the developing apostasy of the second and third centuries — you may not realize how easily the sacerdotal system slipped into Christianity — and how soon after Christ the church was corrupted by its fruits. It was a major factor in the developing of the first great apostasy. and has repeatedly led reformers and restorers away from their noble purposes. Sacerdotal is, Of priests; relating to the priestly office or function. Or sacerdotalism, The doctrine that ordination confers special powers and rights. Judaism had its special priesthood and sacred objects. Only the priests could enter the holy place — wear the holy garments — offer at the altar — approach God on behalf of the laity. And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God as was Aaron. (Heb. 5:4) This system was especially suited to the moonlight age of revelation. while Gods scheme of redemption was yet hidden (Eph. 3:2-f); and served unto the example and shadow of heavenly things. (Heb. 8:4—5) But the New Covenant has its High Priest in heaven, after the order of Melchisedec. and all saints are priests. (1 Pet. 2:5) Even here, we must understand that such statements are couched in the terminology of the shadow. Our tabernacle is the true tabernacle. which the Lord pitched, and not man. The once for all offering is the blood of Christ, i.e., His life given in our behalf. We are given no earthly sanctuary (holy place); although by some unexplainable quirk, the liberal brethren who often accuse us of considering the church building as holy because we do not banquet there — are the very ones who often call the auditorium a sanctuary — and go right ahead and misuse it. (Cf. Heb. 9: 1-8-9, 23-f) Does sacerdotalism exist among brethren? Well, few would admit it, and none would call it that, but let me give you a little test. (1) Do you regard the Lords Supper as a sacrament which only the Elders or Deacons can administer? (2) Are there certain words which must be uttered, and without which valid baptism can not be performed? (Is baptism a holy rite with a liturgy?) (3) Must baptism he administered by preacher — or saint — to be valid? (4) Is the judgement of the Elders irrevocably the will of God by virtue of their office? (See Nov. issue, on office.) (5) Is the church building the house of God? If you think yes to any of these, I beg you to examine your reasons carefully. You may be caught in the web of sacerdotalism without realizing it. Dont let the terminology fool you. I have deliberately used words that our brethren may reject — and not know what the words really mean. Do we reject priestly functions because the word priest is used instead of preacher or elder? Let us hope we have better reasons. Nor should we play into the hands of those who would reject legitimate rule of elders, etc. , by refusing to seriously consider these matters.
