What would be the impact on our philosophical, religious, and even evolutionary theories if bones from large reptiles were found on the moon? Who would be most shaken up? Would you lose your faith in God? Would you have to rethink your science? What would it do to you? The fact is that if would change your core beliefs, then maybe you should re-examine them right now. You don’t know what may happen just around the corner that could turn your world upside down.
Well, to be honest, this was originally just a test to see what kind of headline really catches people’s attention. Did it yours? If so, then why?
Even if dinosaur bones were found on the moon, or even if alien people landed on the White House lawn (really, could they even do that without getting pegged by surface-to-air missiles?), Christianity could stand the test. As a friend of mine, Steve Castlen put it:
No it wouldnt shake my faith because:
1. The creation itself still needs a “Creator”.
2. The fine-tuning of the physical laws still needs a “Tuner”.
3. Moral laws still need a “Law Giver”.
4. The historical evidence for Jesus’ resurrection still stands.
5. And all life, even alien life cant come from non-life.
So, what do you think? There is coming a day when the Bible predicts that the lies from the Enemy would be so strong that “even the elect” would have a hard time not believing them:
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect. – Matthew 24:24
Give it some thought.
