What do you think?

How do we react to news like this?

"Space scientists and government officials are tracking two massive objects that are hurtling toward Earth, but only one, a dead satellite the size of a bus, is expected to hit somewhere on the globe.

Government officials said Saturday that a large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and could hit Earth in late February or early March. And an asteroid at least 500 feet long will make a rare close pass by Earth early Tuesday, but scientists say there is no chance of an impact." [GO TO SOURCE]

Keep your eschatology* in mind. Are we hopeful for Christ? As my studies continue, news like this becomes less and less disturbing. I have to admit that partial preterism has a strong case for optimism.

Well first of all, the asteroid is going to miss us by quite a bit. Second of all, the news article is clearly trying to piggy back the bus sized satellite on the asteroid's tail.

It seems clear from the article that the satellite's biggest threat is in its make up of harmful chemicals - which I doubt will have any significant global effect (Considering it's bus sized and all).

Do you think that, if the asteroid described in Revelation is still to come, that we may be our own undoing?

There is a better article here Spy Satellite Heading for Earth

An interesting one is:
Space Junk a Potential Threat

What I'm trying to get at with this blog is: are we looking FORWARD to destruction? Should we be? Does our view on Revelation create a cynical attitude towards tomorrow?

I don't think it's biblical to look forward to destruction, for the sake of those who are not saved. Proverbs 24:17 "Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth"
