Astronomy, the Bible and Creation July 19, 2016

Someone has been telling you that almost no intelligent educated people believe in the truthfulness and authority of the Bible? Don’t believe them. They are wrong. Sir William Hershel, discoverer of the planet Uranus, father of stellar and galactic astronomy wrote, “All discoveries seem to be made only for the purpose of confirming more and more strongly the truths in sacred scriptures.” Nicholas Copernicus, responsible for the idea that the earth orbits the sun, wrote, “My salvation lies only and alone on…Jesus Christ.” These statements came from Dr. Martin Gaskell, of the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of California at Santa Cruz. And they are simply a recognition of the words God inspired David, the Psalmist to write, “The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork.” Yes, we can trust the Bible, we can trust Jesus to do what He has promised to do- namely to forgive, cleanse and prepare us for heaven.
