Was Solomon A Pagan Prophet?
There are some verses from Bible which potrays Solomon as a Pagan Prophet.
Why King Solomon turn to other gods?
"As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods." [1 Kings 11:4]
Why did king Solomon build idols?
The king also desecrated the pagan shrines east of Jerusalem, to the south of the Mount of Corruption, where King Solomon of Israel had built shrines for Ashtoreth, the detestable goddess of the Sidonians; and for Chemosh, the detestable god of the Moabites; and for Molech, the vile god of the Ammonites. [2 Kings 23:13]
The story of Solomon in 2 Chronicles1-9 is highly equivalent to 1 Kings 2-10. However, Ezra in 2 Chronicles drops the section of 1 Kings11 as if this is so unimportant. Even chapter 2 Kings 23 mentions that King Josiah destroyed the idols (made by Solomon in verse 2 Kings 23:13). However, 2 Chronicles 34-35 does not mention that these idols were made by Solomon. It seems that Ezra in Chronicles does not know anything about Solomon worshipping idols or at least dropping it as if it is unimportant.
