QUESTION: Does the Word of God say anything about man going to the moon or exploring or inhabiting other planets?

 

 

ANSWER: Of course there is a verse that addresses this subject!  Acts 17:26 says, “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.”

 

This verse teaches at least three important concepts.  The first is that all nations of men are of one blood.  Science has confirmed what the Bible has said for centuries: as long as blood types are the same, transfusions can be made from one person to another regardless of nationality, race or skin color.

 

The second thing that we read is that man was made to “dwell on all the face of the earth.”  God made man to dwell on the earth.  The sin at the tower of Babel was man trying to “reach” God in Heaven.  As knowledge increases men “educate” themselves to the place that they no longer need God.  This is dangerous and has eternal consequences.  Nature, or the world around us, speaks of God’s power.  The Word of God says that when we ignore nature as a visible declaration of God’s existence and right to rule, we become vain in our imaginations and our foolish hearts are darkened. It goes on to say, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Rom 1:22; Evolution, for example.).

 

Consider some other verses on the subject: 1 Cor 1:19, “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”  1 Cor 1:21, “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”  1 Cor 3:19, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.”

 

The third and final point from Acts 17:26 is seen in that God “hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.”  God has already ordained the times of man. Where (on earth) and for how long man will live has been settled.  God will come when it is time and man will not determine his own destiny.  Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”
