I spend a lot of m spare time watching YouTube videos about the universe. I love to see various artists renditions about the planets and what we know about outer space. It is not conceivable that ANYONE who knows anything about science can believe the universe is only some 6,000 years old. This is what fascinates me about the universe. When I was younger, I believed in a 6,000 year old universe. It's what I was taught from scripture and that anyone who taught anything different was in MY thinking some kind of intellectual Communist. Really. This is how narrow my world was when I was young. But today, I realize that we can't limit God to our own understanding or what I would say are our beliefs. Many people believe many different things about life and the universe, but that doesn't mean beliefs are correct even if what is believed is believed by masses of people. This is why I say I don't care about numbers. I know what I HAVE to say as Brother Ralphie has to be a reflection of what I know and how my Angels have influenced my thinking. It means nothing if you believe the universe is 6,000 years old, but can't accept that EVERY Human Being is created by God, and for that reason only God can take a Human Life.
There are scientists that believe that humanity today is really ALL we have. So, while their reason for thinking that all Human Life is sacred is the same as mine, they don't reason as I do. But I STILL accept their reasoning. It CAN be scientifically proven that the universe is some 14.6 billion years old, even though I can't square this with that the Bible might teach us. Science books today are out of print in ten years and have to be re-written because our knowledge expands that much. But the Bible is static. So, what COULD be understood some thousands of years ago has no bearing on what we understand today. But I say that belief doesn't matter EXCEPT to believe that NOTHING is more important to God than Human Life. If believing in a 6,000 year old creation brings some kind of understanding about the importance of Human Life to God, then I say that such belief is simply a belief I can allow, even if in my thinking, it's not a correct belief. This is what I say about ANY belief. If you believe ALL Scripture is inspired by God, you have to ask yourself why it is important to believe this. If you believe your salvation depends on such belief, then I would say your beliefs are at odds with mine, because in fact, the Old Testament allows for the taking of Human Life for certain sins. I say this is NOT what Jesus teaches us. He teaches us just the opposite. When Jesus had the right by the teachings of the Old Testament to take Human Life, He didn't do that. In fact, He did just the opposite. He excused people who might otherwise have been put to death for their sins by the Pharisees. Jesus understood their thinking.
I would go so far to say that I do too. I understand how the Pharisees in today's world think. Scientists can, in many cases, understand the very nature of God better than most Christians. Why? It's the fundamental belief that NOTHING is more important to God than Human Life. The scientist might differ on why they believe Human Life is important. They might say because our humanity is all we have. But then I say there is no greater scientist than God. Time for Him does NOT exist. He is unlimited by space. While might think that even 14.6 billion years is a very long time, I would suggest that to God that is nothing but a blink of an eye. If we were to measure the age of God, 6,000 years wouldn't even be as close to 14.6 billion years. If we think this way about God, in fact, I would say God HAS no age. This is why I am fascinated by YouTube videos about the universe. It just shows how small, and yet significant we are to God. I am Brother Ralphie writing for my Angels from The Angels of Life Institute. Peace. Brother Ralphie works from his study for the promotion of Peaceful living and inner Peace with God. He calls this the “Sanctity of Human Life Movement.”
