We are not alone in the universe (Maxwell; Moses)

Hebrews 1:2).

“And worlds without number have I created; and I also

mine and I know them” (Moses 1:33, 35).

He had no idea where it might have originated, because it was quite unlike anything else that he had ever seen.

He explained to this seminar that it tells a story about a man named Zosimus who leaves Jerusalem. He goes out into the desert, wanders and gets lost in a big mist of darkness. He then arrives at the banks of a big ocean or river. He cannot move. He is afraid because he wants to know the way to a life of righteousn…
