And from great sea storms, to the simple vast, endlessness of the … Read more The War with Chaos | Understanding Genesis Chapter 1 verse 9

Genesis and Science | Understanding Genesis Chapter 1 verse 8

And God called the Expanse Sky. And there was evening, and there was morning, the second day. Understanding Genesis chapter 1 verse 8

On this little planet that we call home, there exists approximately 400 miles of vertical space between the surface where we walk, and the upper shell of our atmosphere.
