THE INHABITED UNIVERSE

Satellites made by men have circled the earth, and inventive experts in various nations are designing craft to travel farther and farther into space. Meanwhile, imagination makes unconfined flights regarding the possible inhabitants of other globes and poses such questions as these: Are the inhabitants like the dwellers on earth? Are they behind us in civilization or far ahead? Are they crude, brutish, craftily destructive, or are they perhaps eager to share astounding achievements? Speculating thus may please one's fancy but serves no useful purpose and may multiply ignorant fears.

Turning for guidance to the Bible, the Christian's chart of life, we find abundant light and reassurance in regard to the universe. We read (Gen. 1:31), "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." Accepting this glorious, spiritual fact, we see that goodness, Godlikeness, embraces God's whole universe, without exception, and that therefore any suggestion of evil here or anywhere is utterly unreal.
