Exploring the World Unknown to us

Last week we once again watched with fear and disbelief the disaster of Colombia space shuttle. They were only sixteen minutes away from home, but they could not make it.  All the seven astronauts died in this tragic event. But if we look at the other side of the coin we admire and realize how the astronauts took great courage in exploring the world unknown to us. One NASA scientist said, "It is more than a job, it is passion."

We are all curious to know what is beyond this world. I remember while I was a small child, I asked myself looking toward moon, what the shadowing things we see in the moon could be. And some of the servants told me that, "One old lady is sitting in it and threading wool." Similar tales are very often being spoken by people in India but none of them might have the slightest idea that one day human beings will reach this moon and discover that it was not any lady sitting there, but rocks and mountains of on the surface of moon. Even today if you go to a village and ask the people, "Do you think we can go and live in moon", may be they will say that it is impossible. A few years back while I was in India when some journalists went into some very remote villages of India and asked some of the people, "do you believe that, your live motion pictures can be seen in a small box called TV." They nodded their heads in disbelief and said, "we think it is impossible.." They never saw any TV sets in their lives and so it was hard for them to believe what they were hearing. 

A few months back I was talking to one atheist and he said to me, "There is no heaven or hell.. there is no God, all these things are just imaginations of human beings or myth."  Why people think like this? Because they see only what is around them and they do not have knowledge of what is beyond this world. But thousands of years ago God spoke through the Bible about two more places other than earth, that is heaven and hell. Heaven is a place were God, His heavenly hosts and righteous people live. Once Jacob saw a dream in which he saw, "a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it" (Gen 28:12).  And of course there are many references in the Bible that talks about heaven, the dwelling place of God and heavenly hosts. And the Bible also describes about hell which is the dwelling place of devil, wicked people and those who forsake God. 

Bible also tells us that after death a person goes to one of these places either heaven or hell. It is the bitter truth that a person who is born in this world will die one day. And it is also the bitter truth that hell is a real place where a person will go if he/she did not receive the forgiveness of his/her sin. But how sad it is that many are ignorant about these places. Many simply do not want to talk about hell.  Think about that, few years back or few centuries ago who ever believed or ever thought that human beings could go to moon and think of making colony there? But today it is a reality whether you believe it or not! The same thing is about hell, whether you believe it or not, one day you will reach there if you live in sin. But the Bible tells us how to escape from hell. Proverbs 15:24, "The way of life winds upward for the wise, that he may turn away from hell below."

Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." Jesus is the way of life and by accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior we can escape eternal death and hell fire. Invite Jesus in your life and make sure of your destination today so that you may not perish but have eternal life.


Is Bible Infallible? 4

By Vinod Isaac

While believers don't have light of their own but they reflect the light of Christ. Although there are many who claim to be reflecting the light of Christ, but they are not, because they have not experienced the expulsion of darkness from their life. They still live in sin and even encourage others to live in sin. They only care that from outside they should look good and that every body appreciate them. But true light 
expels all darkness. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness and truth. If you are not focused on truth and righteousness know it if for sure that you are not the light, but a false imitator of the light.

Gen 1:17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 

God first created Sun, Moon and Stars. We don't know at which location he created them may be far away some where and verse 17 says He later set them in the firmament of the heavens. Exactly in the same way different parts are created in a manufacturing plant at different place and then assembled together later on. God created them and then set them up.

Now scientist try to calculate the age of the universe by calculating the distance of stars. They have an assumption that starts have been moving the way it is moving. Universe has been expanding the way it is expanding. But they forget that God can place them where ever He wants in a split second.

Calculating age by the current expansion is something like this. I constantly observe a car on Express Way in New York for an hour it is moving at a constant rate of 60 Miles/Hour. I assume that this car has been traveling in the same speed for ever and also I assume it will be traveling in the same speed forever in the days to come. From 
there I calculate the distance from Moscow to New York and calculate that from the hours the car has taken to travel. Don't you see that some thing is wrong here? What is wrong?  I did not take into consideration that there is a driver inside the car who has power to
accelerate or decelerate the car. Even he has power to bring it to a total halt. Same way scientists forget that there is a God who is on the driver's seat having full control in His hands.

Let's move on a look what else God created.

Gen 1:20-25, Then God said, "Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens." So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so." And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Fish, great sea creatures, birds, living creatures, cattle, creeping things, beasts each according to its kind. Do they exist? Oh yes, they exist in plenty. Are they according to their kind? Yes they are. So they also abide by the law God has given them or God has set.

Gen 1:26-27, Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

God created man in His own image, in His own likeness. This is the man that is today rejecting God and asking all kinds of questions. All the creation works perfectly as God ordained it to work except humans. Humans are given free will and we exercised our free will and have raised our fist against God. God answered us back by sending His only begotten Son the Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins. Jesus never sinned but yet He became sin for you and me. Look to Him today and ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you with His precious blood. Invite Him to come into your heart. He will expel darkness and 
give you light.

We will continue to explore Genesis account on many other grounds. So don't forget to stop by and read next issue. May God bless you.

To be continued....
