The Big Bang Was an Explosion OF Space, Not IN Space

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

(Genesis 1:1)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
was God.

(John 1:1)

«I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have

Who can look up at the sky on a bright, clear night, and, having watched the myriads of stars and planets whirling through space, was not awed with the majesty, the beauty and magnificence of this world, this home of ours.

Creation, participating in divine energies becomes existence out of non-existence [1]. Διαβάστε τη συνέχεια του άρθρου »
