@ JW ANSWERS - here are some questions about the gospel of Matthew chapter 2 which you may like to address in light of your version of "truth": (Clue - the answers are in the verses)
1) Matthew 2:1 NKJV - "Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold, wise men came from the east to Jerusalem."
Question: Where was Jesus born, but to where & whom did the sat-nav "star" first lead the magi, aka "the wise men"?
2) Matthew 2:3 NKJV - "When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him."
Question: Why would all Jerusalem be troubled? Deuteronomy 18:10-12 NKJV - “There shall not be found among you anyone who....interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or a spiritist...For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD."
3) Matthew 2:7 - "Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared."
Question: Why did Herod secretly call the wise men? (see Deuteronomy 18:10-12)
4) Matthew 2:9,11,13 - "...the star...came and stood over where the young Child was...And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child....“Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt,...for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.”
Question: Did the "wise men" ever see a baby in a manger?
So, by your reasoning, God took a group of men who were an abomination, and used a "star" to lead them straight to a man whose purpose was to kill the young Jesus - God's own son? Couldn't God just have led them directly to Bethlehem, and saved a mass slaughter of kids under 2 years of age being carried out?
Scripturally, that "star" resulted in three "birthday presents" being handed over - followed by enormous misery, terror, and grief - and your beliefs say that God caused it!
