The Importance of Apollo 8
Published : December 20, 2017
The most awe-inspiring moment occurred when the Apollo 8 crew, as they were orbiting the moon, did a live broadcast to the then largest TV audience in history, showing us the far side of the moon while reading from the book of Genesis chapter 1:1-10. On that magical Christmas Eve American astronauts were wonderfully articulating the "American Cosmology of Creation." They embraced our Republic under God, understanding that the very source of our life, our liberty, our humanity and our universe is the God of the Scriptures, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
