Dear Pastor Maureen
This may seem a very strange thing to ask. It’s not really a question – I’d just like your opinion, what you think. And I’d rather not give my name. On TV news recently I’ve saw that NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope had released ‘the clearest image to date of the early universe, going back 13 billion years’ … close to the estimated beginning of the universe itself, just after ‘the big bang.’ I’m confused. What do you think?
Hi there, friend
This isn’t really my ‘thing.’ But I would make the following comments and pray they help you and put your mind at rest.
Whatever those science and technology experts say, and the big bang ‘theory’ claim of how the universe coming into existence, I remain ‘a simple home-town girl’ in my thinking about ‘the beginning.’ At home, many years ago, when only five-years-old, I accepted Jesus as my Saviour.
I was taught Bible stories in Sunday school and learned that in the beginning God created everything from nothing… heaven, earth, stars and seasons, day and night, so many creatures… birds, fish, animals, grass, herbs and fruit… and more, even human beings.(more…)
