mid-week apologetics booster (11-19-2020)

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 1800) from Nuggets:

Telescopes reveal comets in long orbits around the sun. These balls of ice follow orbits that every once in a while bring them close to the giant ball of fire. It would be like putting a snow cone half an inch from a space heater set on high. No wonder comets routinely fizzle in front of our eyes when they’re near the sun. They can’t last billions of years. – SCOTT ARLEDGE and BRIAN THOMAS, Ph.D. (Acts and Facts August 2020)

Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to the grave, nor did his body see decay. Acts 2:29-31

Blessings to you all
