i’m a science loving jesus freak

“To judge faith by vulgar caricatures of religious faith that would make a first year theology student wince is like judging science by eugenics, nuclear warheads and chemical pollutants.”

Stop marketing, and start loving

If your church has stopped growing, marketing is not your solution. If you have stopped seeing life change, marketing is not the answer.”

man in a hole – what jesus would do

note: i dont normally like to disrespect other religions…and this is not my aim with this video.

how big is God’s work?

Let’s take the biggest star we know of – Canis Majoris – and compare it to earth. Remember – this is JUST one star and ONLY the biggest one we know of.

– It is 7 quadrillion times larger than earth – a quadrillion is 1000 million million.
– If we replaced our sun with Canis Majoris the surface of the star would reach Saturns orbit (Saturn being a planet further out from the Sun than earth – past Jupiter)
– Light takes more than 8 hours to travel around the star’s circumference – it only takes 8 minutes for our sun’s light to reach Earth.

Assuming a speed of 3 miles per hour for 8 hours a day – how big is it:
– it would take 2 years 11 months to walk around the earth
– it would take 310 years 7 months on the Sun
– it would take 665,000 years to walk around Canis Majoris

Remember – this is only 1 star.

Here’s a video on how big it (and God is).
