Planet- The evidence of God’s existence

God positioned all the planets perfectly at a safe distance to avoid overpowering each other, which may lead to destruction. The sun’s power, once it gets closer to other planets, may cause disturbances in the galaxy. The same thing as the moon. Any planet that gets too close to each other may not be beneficial.

Christians believe that the Earth belongs to God and entrusted humans to maintain it in preparation for the coming generations, to have a better earth to live in, and to be responsible inhabitants to protect the remaining species. Sustaining and nurturing whatever Mother Earth provided us, God used Mother Earth to provide plants and vegetables, which we must utilize as food and medicine.

Unfortunately, humans, in return, ignored stewardship and destroyed the environment through deforestation, agricultural land converted to factories and subdivisions, and sea and air pollution; hence, the Earth is facing its ultimate destruction. Over-population, another human disobedient act to subdue the population, is another issue the church is not addressing for members’ awareness.

God has placed humans in a position of responsibility over the creation. Genesis 2:15 says, The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to do some work, and as a steward of God, we are accountable to Him.

God said when humankind had become corrupted and made sin, it became part of their lives in the period preceding the deluge; God said: ‘My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh… (ref. Genesis 6:3). God knows our weakness because we are flesh hence, we should know how the Spirit works for us. Obedience, responsibility, and relationships are the keys to the crown of victory.

God be with you all.
