In Our eternal universe I laid out the biblical and scientific case for an eternal created universe sustained by the Creator. That article was published in the Journal of Creation 30(3):104–109, December 2016, which has a wider readership than here, my personal web/blog site. And it attracted some comments via Letters to the Editor.
The ‘standard’ biblical creationist view has been that at the New Heaven and New Earth stage at some point in the future God wipes out the whole starry heavens and recreates a new universe of stars and galaxies. I am convinced the Creator will renovate the earth and its atmospheric heavens in that event but what do the scriptures really tell us?
Below I reproduce the letters arguing against my hypothesis and my responses.

One reply on “More on our eternal universe”
Hi there Dr John. I really appreciate what you do. I’d just like to say that in regards to Luke interpreting Matthew. Without doing this Matthew 24:34 would be a massive stumbling block to those, like ourselves, who require eyewitness testimony from the original apostles. Luke 16:8 is key in explaining what ‘generation’ means in Matthew 24:34. But anyway, thanks for improving our satellites with your gift and showing us inside the world of theoretical physics. God bless. Jonathan -NZ
