Why Were You Born?
by Wayne Blank
It is estimated that there are over 200,000,000,000 (200 billion) stars in our galaxy, the "Milky Way," alone. Astronomers believe that there are at least that many galaxies, with perhaps an average size equal to our galaxy, in the universe. 200 billion times 200 billion equals an incomprehensible number of stars.
With the use of the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers are just now obtaining the photographic proof of what many have believed for a long time - that other stars have planets just as our star (the "sun") does. There could be a vast number of planets (a great many just like earth) out there - a great many times more inhabitable planets than the total number of people that have ever lived through all the ages.
Most Christians commonly believe that they will go to heaven after they die, and they will (eventually), but very few seriously consider what they may be doing when they get there.
