Psalm 136:8

the sun to govern the day,
His love endures forever.
(NIV)
I have been teaching a history class at my school, and we are currently talking about the ancient Egyptians. These people, along with many other ancient civilizations and even many primitive tribes, would worship the sun.

It reminds me of Romans 1:18-25 which talks about this exact thing. I won't quote the entire thing right now, but I do want to at leas put up part of verse 25, which says, "They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator."

That is exactly what they were doing. Worshiping something that was created.

I have been watching a show on the Discovery Channel lately called The Universe. And I have to tell you, the modern day, atheistic, evolutionary scientist isn't such a far shot from those ancient Egyptians. They both ignore the creator, they both ignore the one that set the sun up for the day.

The sun God made to rule the day
Will surely one day pass away.

Its fiery blasts will be no more
With Jesus knocking at the door.

Sun worshipers will see defeat
And knees will bow as sky retreats

Without the sun it won't be night
For then we'll see the one true light.

Then all this earth will be undone
And out will step the Bright True Son!
