NASA to build telescope to find killer asteroids: Finding hope for an uncertain future

While many are focusing on the “whistleblower” complaint against President Trump that was made public yesterday, NASA is responding to an issue that is celestial but could become terrestrial: the space agency is moving forward with plans to launch a telescope that could detect asteroids on a collision course with Earth.

According to Forbes, people may soon be able to use 3D printers to construct weapons of mass destruction. With the proper blueprints, a WMD could be built by rogue states, terrorists, and others who have not had access to wield such powerful weapons before.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
