moon landing

Moon landing faked......, some people say. Actually, it wasn’t really a fake, but it’s amazing that conspiracy theories still abound. If you look at any YouTube footage of the moon landing, someone often comments that it was staged in a studio or made up. I know many of them are being tongue in cheek, but there are still those who seriously think it was an American propaganda job. If you are one of those, write ‘moon landing hoax myths’ into Google and have a good read (Brief overview here at national geographic). I’d also recommend the YouTube video entitled “moon flaggin” by LunarTuner.

I sometimes find intelligent people writing off Jesus Christ as some sort of hoax or fairy tale as well, without first having looked at the amount of legitimate research around. Ultimately after reading the facts, each person needs to take the leap of faith to be a believer; but it is not based on thin air, there is a large body of work about Christ.

In the book of Acts, this sort of ‘checking the facts to help faith’ attitude is endorsed: “the people in Berea … gladly accepted the message. Day after day they studied the Scriptures to see if these things were true.” (Acts 17 verse 11).

We all have our doubts - but make sure you use your head. You may actually find it supporting your faith.
