The Worship of …Solomon?
Solomon, the Bible tells us, was the wisest man thatever lived. Unfortunately, his wisdom wasn’t enduring,because at the end of his life – he may have diedwithout faith in God. His case is tragic, but what may beeven more tragic is the number of cults that havesprung up using Solomon as a prophet/deity. These cults often place too much emphasis onSolomon’s status as the last ruler of the united kingdomof Israel. They make Solomon out to be a great teacher,messiah, or link their current leader as a reincarnationof Solomon.A few examples include Kabbalah, a form of Jewishmysticism that claims to have its origins in Solomon’sthought; Freemasonry, a secretive society that bases itsquasi-religious teachings on a connection with Solomonand the building of the temple; and Rastafarianism, thefamous Haile Sellassie worshiping cult that explains thatHaile Sellassie is the messiah because he ruled thenation of Ethiopia, which they believed to be Solomon’spromised land.All of these are examples of exactly what Solomonallowed to happen in His own life, which was to replacethe worship of the true God with things and people thatare lesser.
