= The Morning Star of the Holy Bible
Those who defend the use of the pentagram in order to represent Christianity are apt to point out that it is only the pentagram upside-down that connotes evil, while the five-pointed star right-side up is actually a symbol of goodness. Regardless of who is really right about this particular subject, the fact remains that it is still the Hexagram, the Star of David, more than any other symbol, which truly represents Christianity. Given everything, the pentagram is far more of a Pagan, and anti-Christian symbol. Why is that? Here are just a few reasons:
I. The Star of David is a symmetrical symbol representing the Christian trinity, while the the pentagram is an asymmetrical, dualistic symbol. From the beginning, Christianity has always been a unified, symmetrical religion that emphasizes the unity, rather than the duality, of both the material and spiritual world. Dualism was always considered to be a Pagan, or Gnostic, heresy
II. The Star of David, quite literally, symbolizes the Messiah, which in Hebrew simply means the King of Israel, or the Anointed One of God.
III. Because Jesus Christ is from the House of David, it is the hexagram, and not the pentagram, that is truly representative of Rabbi Jesus. In reality, the six-pointed Star of David is nothing more than the ancient coat-of-arms for the royal family descended from King David. This includes Joseph, the father of Jesus Christ, as well as Jesus Himself.
IV. The Bible makes metaphorical reference to the Star of David, both in the Old and New Testament, such as when talking about an 'eye for and eye, tooth for a tooth', Heaven and Earth, etc. Scriptures is filled with obvious references to the two triangles of the Star of David.
V. Judeo-Christian symbolism of the four elements (Earth, Air, Water, Fire) has traditionally been based upon the two triangles of the hexagram with earth and water being the inverted triangle and air and fire as the upright triangle.
VI. Churches throughout the world can be found with the Star of David upon them. For centuries, Christians have always viewed the Star of David, the hexagram, as a 'hex' that protects against the Devil.
With all this in mind, it seems quite logical to conclude that the Morning Star, which is mentioned several times in the Bible can best be symbolized by the six-pointed hexagram, rather than the somewhat evil, five-pointed pentagram. In order to understand this assertion, here are all the Biblical passages which mention the Morning Star by name:
The Morning Star in the Bible
Let its morning stars remain dark.Let it hope for light, but in vain;may it never see the morning light. (Job 3:9)
Keep the morning star from shining, give that night no hope of dawn. (Job 3:9)
Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me if you have such insight...Who laid its cornerstone when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:4-7)
He was like the morning star shining through the clouds, like the full moon. (Sirach 50:6)
How you have fallen from heaven, you morning star, son of the dawn! How you have been cut down to the ground, you conqueror of nations! (Isaiah 14:12)
So we are even more confident of the message proclaimed by the prophets. You will do well to pay attention to it, because it is like a lamp shining in a dark place until the Day dawns and the light of the morning star shines in your hearts. (2 Peter 1:19)
To those who win the victory, who continue to the end to do what I want, I will give the same authority that I received from my Father. I will give them authority over the nations, to rule them with an iron rod and to break them to pieces like clay pots. I will also give them the morning star. (Revelation 2:26)
They will have the same authority I received from my Father, and I will also give them the morning star! (Revelation 2:28)
I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you about these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright, Morning Star. (Revelation 22:16)
As can be seen, the metaphorical use of the Star of David, along with the two triangles it is composed of, is clearly on display in most of these Scriptural passages. Indeed, the last verse just quoted from the Book of Revelation is quite obvious in its metaphorical intentions. Here is an ikonographic chart which indicates the symbols being alluded to:
| The Bible||Revelation 22:16|
| I, Jesus...am the Root...|
| ...and Branch of David.|
| I am the Bright, Morning Star.|
While not as obvious as the this particular Biblical passage, literally every single one of the verses mentioning the Morning Star can be understood using different sequences of two triangles which make up the Star of David. All things considered, the Morning Star referred to throughout the Bible most surely connotes the six-pointed Star of David, the hexagram, rather than any other alternative insignia. Here are the rest of the symbolic interpretations of the Morning Star as written in the Holy Bible:
| The Bible||Revelation 2:26|
| I will give them authority... |
| ...over the nations, to rule them with an iron rod and...|
|...to break them to pieces like clay pots. I will also give them the morning star.|

| How you have fallen...|
| ...from Heaven...|
| ...you morning star, son of the dawn! How you have been cut down to the ground, you conqueror of nations!|

|I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you about these things in the churches. I am the Root...|
| ...and the Offspring of David...|
| ...the Bright, Morning Star.|

| They will have the same authority I received from...|
| ...my Father, and I will also give them...|
| ...the morning star!|

| You will do well to pay attention to it, because it is like a lamp shining in a dark place...|
| ...until the Day dawns and the...|
