“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
The world tells a GREAT NUMBER of tall tales.
About the way the world is.
About the way the world operates.
About the physical makeup of the world.
ALL of tall tales of the world–which is largely populated with UNBELIEVERS–involve challenging the Word of God.
Some of the world’s tall tales involve a place which does NOT exist and which the world insists surrounds the earth: outer space.
Outer space is a place where the world’s storytellers wax poetic. Outer space–in the world’s telling–is filled with other planets, dangerous ASTEROIDS and extraterrestrial life.
Because these tales are from the world–and NOT from God–they are endlessly repeated.
Eventually, they are accepted as the truth.
What does God’s Word have to say about ‘outer space’ and the way the world really is?
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. “
Heaven is what is above the earth: NOT ‘outer space.’
But, man is a deceived creature and would rather believe a more entertaining story.
Hence, the MANY stories about ‘outer space’ and the MANY stories about the ‘outer space’ stories themselves.
There are other stories of the world which challenge the Word of God.
A few of these tall tales involve the ‘perfectibility of man’–AS IF man was perfectible.
Some other stories told by the world involve RANDOM CHANCE as the creator INSTEAD of a loving God.
It matters not that RANDOM CHANCE has NEVER repeated itself: in the world’s telling, RANDOM CHANCE is something in which modern man places GREAT faith.
IF the reader has a few minutes to spare, he may want to reflect on OTHER stories the world tells which IN SOME WAY challenge the Word of God.
It does NOT matter so much if the reader believes these stories or not: what matters is that the reader EXAMINE those stories to see if he can tell they are merely STORIES.
Stories which: 1) the world TELLS to those who dwell upon the earth; and, 2) the men who dwell upon the earth put their faith in RATHER than the truth of the Word of God.
The world tells its stories of ‘outer space’ and how DANGEROUS that imagined place is.
BUT, as DANGEROUS as the stories of the world make ‘outer space’ to be, it is still NOT as DANGEROUS as the earth is with all of the world’s stories which challenge the truth of God’s Word.
Who does the reader believe: the world or the Word of God?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
