Current Event: Life in Outer Space?

From <http://www.foxnews.com/weather/2017/02/22/7-earth-sized-planets-discovered-orbiting-nearby-star-could-harbor-liquid-water/>
On February 22, NASA announced the discovery of a new system: seven planets orbiting a star. This star is called TRAPPIST-1 and is 39 light-years away. All of the planets are earth-sized. Scientists believe they may contain liquid water. “This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. “Answering the question, ‘are we alone?’ is a top science priority and finding so many planets like these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable step forward toward that goal.”           Nevertheless, these planets would be hard to explore because they are far away, indeed. The spacecraft that reached Pluto, New Horizons, would take 800,000 years to reach TRAPPIST-1. The…

A Thought of Today

So... here we are, watching as the world goes from bad to worse. One more day, here we are, living in a cursed earth, witnessing that the nature of man never, never changes.
 And no matter what, we as humans can never change that nature. Because since Adam and Eve sinned, every single human being has been born with a sinful nature. I think Romans chapter 1 gives a clear description of it. 
And ... "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." (Rom.1:12.)
"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;" (Rom 1:28). 

But thank God for his gift of freedom from sin! 


Just a thought for my brothers and sisters in Christ!

Current Event: Donald Trump and his Wall

Trump and the WallBibliography: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-37243269

The president of the United States started his endeavor to build a wall to separate the US from Mexico. Though the border covers 1,900 miles, Donald Trump claims, “I would build a great wall , and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I build them very inexpensively.”
  The article deals first with how much would the wall cost. The president affirms that the cost will range from $10bn to $12bn. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calculated otherwise, a cost from $12bn to $15bn. A study of the Washington Post estimated a cost of $25bn. So far, 650 miles of fencing has been already laid on the frontier, with a cost of $7bn. "Adding even more to the expense, the new 1,000 miles would crisscross private land, which would have to be purchased, perhaps by legal force, or financial settlements made with owners".
  Next, the article goes deeper to who will pay for the wall and how. While…
