Dear Glenn,

Scripture tells us about a new earth and a new heaven. Do these things have
anything to do with our earth and our sky. If so, I cannot see how our
present laws will predict such things. Glenn let us face it we do not know
if we are going to be here tomorrow. Human mortality may point to the
"mortality" of the universe. Perhaps, then just as we cannot know when we
will die, we cannot know when the universe will "die." God is consistent,
but that does not say that such consistency means what we want it to mean.
We really don't know that much about God. In Christ we see mainly His love
for us.

Take care,
