Evangelism: Technology and Our Future in Space

Christian laser communications center, moon base, year 2320: Taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to the stars and beyond (illustration part of the Wonders of the Bible collection).

I often speak of the future (Lord willing) of Christianity, and how science and technology will be used for evangelism.  Most likely our first experiences will be with orbital habitats, rather than habitats on the surface of another heavenly body (such as the moon or mars). Of course, we already have the International Space Station, where humans have "lived" away from Earth for many months at a time. One could envision the same with the moon and mars: orbital habitats for long-term living, with visits made to the surface being more short-term.

If and when this movement into space takes place, there still will be a responsibility for bringing souls to Christ. I have already demonstrated how this could / will be done via free-space laser communication technologies. Even over vast distances in space ... such as between localized orbital stations between Earth / Moon and Mars.

Jesus Christ will be returning as promised. Until that glorious moment arrives, we must plan for the future of Christian communications -- whether Earth based, or space based.

1611 First Edition King James Bible Pages

Genesis and Revelation title pages from a 1611 first-edition King James Bible, printed in London by Robert Barker. The two books -- the first and the last of the Christian Holy Bible -- relate to each other in very interesting ways: (1) Genesis: the commencement of Heaven and Earth (ch 1:1) / Revelation: the consummation of Heaven and Earth (ch 21:1). (2) Genesis: the entrance of sin and the curse (ch 3:1-19) / Revelation: the end of sin and the curse (ch 21:27 22:3). (3) Genesis: the dawn of Satan and his activities (ch 3:1-7) / Revelation: the doom of Satan and his activities. (4) Genesis: the tree of life relinquished (ch 2-9, 3:24) / Revelation: the tree of life regained (ch 22:2). (5) Genesis: death makes its entrance (ch 2:17 - 5:5) / Revelation: death makes its exit (ch 21:4). (6) Genesis: sorrow begins (ch 3:16) / Revelation: sorrow is banished (ch 21:4).

For any collector, it would be a blessing to acquire either one of these very rare title pages. To add both to the Wonders of the Bible collection is just beyond anything I could have ever imagined. God Bless You Today -- And Every Day!

Morning Prayer Stereoview 1899

Year: 1899. "Early Morning Prayer" by Keystone View Company, Meadville, Pennsylvania. During the 1800's -- and from the invention of 3D stereo photography -- many companies produced stereographs to be viewed in 3D stereoscopes. This was before radio, television, and other forms of electronic entertainment. People would gather together and view stereographs by candle light or gas light. Some stereographs were produced by companies and were common. Other stereographs were produced by individual photographers. The Wonders of the Bible collection has one of the world's largest collections of one-of-a-kind, antique 3-D stereographs depicting Christianity and church life. God Bless You Today and Every Day!

Christian 3D Lenticular Stereo Postcard

In the 1950's and 1960's, Toppan Printing Company produced many popular Christian-based, 3D stereo postcards. This one is very colorful and shows a lot of dimension and depth when seen in person. Considered by many to be only novelties, I take their history and production very seriously, and respectfully include them in my Wonders of the Bible collection. God Bless You ... Today and EVERY DAY!
