Q: If the universe is only 6000 years old, how can we see stars farther away than 6000 light years?
A: Unobservable #God, who has revealed His nature to us through his Word the #Bible, created the universe to function in ways we don't fully understand yet.
Q: If the #universe is only 13.8 Billion years old, how can we see stars 46 Billion light years away?
A: Unobservable #DarkMatter does it, the nature of which is unknowable by any current instrumentation.

I have been thinking about one issue in particular recently. An issue with Bible translations. Most Bible translations are proprietary in nature, something God's word should never, ever be. God's word *must* be freely available for anyone who wants it. I am not saying a publisher must give a copy gratis to anyone who asks for one (however good that may be). What I am saying is that there should be no restrictions on reading, copying, and using the Bible for any purpose.
Forbidding copying the Bible is evil. Anyone must be able to share the Bible as much as they want. Translating the Bible does not change the fact that it is God's word, and that you cannot own it. Thus there should be no ownership over the Bible, and those who assert ownership over it are better off not even translating it.
For these reasons I do not like to recommend Bible translations with heavy restrictions, such as the NKJV, NLT, NIV, ESV, and NASB. The NET is okay in some ways, as it is very loose, but the publisher still asserts a certain amount of ownership over it.
"City-dwellers have higher trust in science than country folk." Her team also uncovered that people of other faiths and non-religious respondents had a significantly higher level of trust in #science [sic] than those who identify as #Christian.
"Why Most Published #Research Findings Are False." For many scientific fields claimed research findings may often be simply accurate measures of the #bias.
TRIVIA: #Paul was a Benjamite.
I love the community #TheresLife has become. I never expected this to happen when I started it. Thank you all for making There's Life a great place. :-)
There's Life actually wasn't intended as the main social network when I started it. I launched Kingdompod.com shortly afterward, but kingdompod* has few users besides myself anymore. I expected it to get far bigger than it actually did.
OK, please let me start with a basic topic, that is women Pastors.
Tract to pass out at a church regarding women pastors
by Matt Slick
This tract is meant to be printed up and passed out in front of churches that promote and/or have women pastors and elders. Is it popular to do this? No, but we must defend the truth. If you would like the MS Word form of this file (for free) to download, print up, and distribute, go here.
