NASA’s Freedom of Speech–Evangelical Science

It’s a good thing NASA didn’t ask permission to arrange the Pope’s conversation with the Space Station Crew, as it orbited the Earth.

The Liberal’s trying to remove all mention of God from American culture, in the name of “Separation of Church and State,” would surely have blown a gasket.

I’ve been to the Air Force Academy. 

It’s a seminary with jets.

What’s most interesting to me is that it’s a Protestant seminary…an evangelical Bible School of sorts.

The Papal pep-talk is indicative of the Pontiff’s interest in learning more about hi-tech communication and science.

It also gives us a glimpse at a warming trend between Catholics and Non-Catholics that’s starting to flex its muscles in other areas too.

The Pro-Life movement is helping ofttimes anti-Catholic Protestants, dedicated to the unborn, see that the RC crowd is standing as strong as they are in opposition to infanticide that just won’t end.

In the late 1970’s early 80’s I attended a Bible College.  I never renounced Catholicism, but I did have plenty of questions about it.  Scott Hahn cleared things up for me in the end.

One of the arguments I often used to support the Faith of Rome was a common tool evangelicals used in leading people to Christ…it was called “Romans Road,” based on Paul’s comments in Romans 10:9.

That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Being “saved” to a Bible College man or woman was the ultimate litmus test.

I used to say to my friends, when they questioned the authenticity of a Catholic’s faith…

That little old lady praying the Rosary…Do you think she’s ever confessed that Jesus is Lord? 

Do you think she believes in her heart God raised Jesus from the dead?

When they answered “yes” to both questions, the cold war melted a bit.

Congratulations to NASA on a job well done.

You’ve shown incredible courage and made possible one of the most historic conversations in modern history.

That Skype account the Pope opened up finally came in handy.
