Cosmic Authority for Tiny Earth? 9/23/2012

The Mission of the Church

In modern times we have been able to determine the incomprehensible immensity of the heavens. This new found perspective has caused some critics to disparage the Scripture as erroneously "geocentric." However, despite our apparent insignificance compared with the vast expanse of space, recent astronomical observations have suggested that the size and composition of the universe is necessary for the sustainability of life upon our tiny planet. Nonetheless, the Scripture is not "geocentric" but "theocentric." It is God who has focused His eternal purpose upon the earth those made in His image. All authority, even in the heavens, is marshaled for His saving purpose upon our tiny planet.
