In Depth August 3, 2022 Does James Webb Reject God? Follow 0likes 0dislikes Do the James Webb telescope’s new images reject God and disprove religion?
How could anybody come to silly conclusion?
First of all, faith is required to come to a knowledge of God, no scientific discoveries are going to find God sitting upon His throne. That being said, Alma taught the detractors “The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and call things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator. And these compelling words from Moses “And the Lord God spake unto Moses, saying: The heavens, they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered unto me, for they are mine. And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens thereof even so shall another come; and there is no end to my works, neither to my words.” Now, if we had not placed a 10 billion dollar telescope a million miles from earth and pointed that same powerful telescope into the darkness regions of space for 12 consecutive hours absorbing on average 1 photon per minute, stacking image after image, to collectively compile all images into one deep field image, these words by His living prophets would still be a mystery to the family of God. Because who would have guessed that the darkness of spot in space would contain thousands of Galaxies in the first deep field image that Hubble telescope uncovered. But, there is a God, and he calls this planet you live on his footstool, to provide some perspective. It has been theorized that each star has on average one planet orbiting it. Then if you know how many stars are just in our milky way galaxy or in the hundreds of galaxies that are in a single deep field image, then these word come to life literally right off the page. Again from Moses; “And worlds without number have I created; and I also created them for mine own purpose; and by the Son I have created them, which is mine Only Begotten. Not to mention these words from Joseph Smith who translated the prophet Abraham “And I saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest unto the throne of God; and there were many great ones which were near unto it; And the Lord said unto me: These are the governing ones; and the name of the great one is Kolob, because it is near unto me, for I am the Lord thy God: I have set this one to govern all those which belong to the same order as that upon which thou standest. And the Lord said unto me, by the Urim and Thummim, that Kolob was after the manner of the Lord, according to its times and seasons in the revolutions thereof; that one revolution was a day unto the Lord, after his manner of reckoning, it being one thousand years according to the time appointed unto that whereon thou standest. This is the reckoning of the Lord’s time, according to the reckoning of Kolob.
And the Lord said unto me: The planet which is the lesser light, lesser than that which is to rule the day, even the night, is above or greater than that upon which thou standest in point of reckoning, for it moveth in order more slow; this is in order because it standeth above the earth upon which thou standest, therefore the reckoning of its time is not so many as to its number of days, and of months, and of years. And the Lord said unto me: Now, Abraham, these two facts exist, behold thine eyes see it; it is given unto thee to know the times of reckoning, and the set time, yea, the set time of the earth upon which thou standest, and the set time of the greater light which is set to rule the day, and the set time of the lesser light which is set to rule the night.
Now the set time of the lesser light is a longer time as to its reckoning than the reckoning of the time of the earth upon which thou standest. And where these two facts exist, there shall be another fact above them, that is, there shall be another planet whose reckoning of time shall be longer still; And thus there shall be the reckoning of the time of one planet above another, until thou come nigh unto Kolob, which Kolob is after the reckoning of the Lord’s time; which Kolob is set nigh unto the throne of God, to govern all those planets which belong to the same border as that upon which thou standest. Wow! the theory of relativity that Einstein theorized and over ruled Newtons constant time principle was known by the ancients several millennia ago. I conclude that there is a God, that even his prophets know was James Webb and Hubble have recently revealed is old news and that if anything, they confirm His existence. In the name of Him who has created all things, even Jesus Chris– Amen
