Wanna trip out with me? Think twice....we're going to another galaxy.
Bring your cellphone. And charger.
Seriously, how far away from Earth within even our own solar system do you want me to traverse out with you in my imaginary starship?
To Venus? To Mars? Will we be able to see our blue-green home planet with the nude eyes from either location - or will it merely look like a somewhat brighter star than most in the distant blackness of space?
By the way, the only interesting-enough solid surfaces we could temporarily land and stay on would be the dark side of Mercury, one or the other of the moons of Mars, the surface of Mars, the best of several moons of Jupiter, the moon Titan of Saturn, Triton surrounding Neptune, and perhaps the rather-dark "sunny" side of the surface of Pluto. From the latter, I don't think that Earth would even be visible with a 6" reflector telescope.
Good luck to us when we run out of air to breathe, water to drink, water for flushing the toilet, water to wash our dirty clothes (particularly if a heterosexual married couple comprises the crew), fresh vegetables and fresh fruits and fresh meats and fresh milk for health, and parts to repair the re-circulating and power-generating facilities on board.
Pr 27:8 Like a bird that strays from its nest, is a man who strays from his home.
Lu 14:28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
Trying to locate Earth from the nearest star (Alpha Centauri) or from the Andromeda Galaxy would be impossibly hopeless even with a dangerously-nonreliable light-years-transmission-delayed radio homing beacon.
I am even grateful I can radio the wife in Walmart with my cellphone when I lose track of her because I have attracted myself to something of interest in the store (not accurately described semantically as: something which has attracted my attention).
Speaking of things I do not want attracting my attention, I try to ignore and look away from the obscene soft-porn year-round mopheadedness of particularly younger women and girls walking around with non-chignoned, non-shawled, and non-ponytailed loose long hair, and the summertime-slacksless bared legs and sockslessly-sandaled feet of those licentuously-lascivious exhibitionist enticements to pursue other-woman free-internet and flashdrive-savable .jpg color photos and .mpg videoclips pornography of a much more complete, covert, and controllable nature.....which erotica would do other sexually-arousable males no good for me to share the erected-semen-ejaculation-inciting sights with:
1Co 9:27 ......but I pommel my body and subdue it, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
1Co 10:12 Therefore let any one who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.
Ga 6:1 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Look to yourself, lest you too be tempted.
1Ti 5:22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, nor participate in another man's sins; keep yourself pure.
Some religious-heretic self-righteous gals and their male patsies seeking to self-justify their noxious sexual perversity and indecency subtly or overtly blatter out they can misdress however they want in a free country with liberty for all, and that men don't like it they should simply turn away after (but not necessarily before) seeing the terroristic immodesty attack, and stay away if those males not presently married to them do not like the realistically-nonavoidable sexual shit having been non-solicitatingly shoved into their not-presently-married-to-them faces, and irrationalize with empty hypocritical excuses, which lame and empty excuses rectifying Scripture quickly demolishes:
Isa 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter [who misthink it is cute and sexy to be immodest]!
Isa 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight! Isa 10:1 Woe to those who decree iniquitous [massage parlors, escort services, and strip clugs are OK] decrees, and the [public-sex ACLU/AUSCS/PAW/Planned-Parentlessness and pro-porn journalist] writers who keep writing oppression,
Isa 29:15 Woe to those who hide deep from the LORD their counsel, whose deeds are in the dark, and who say, "Who sees us? Who knows us?"
Hab 2:16 You will be sated with contempt instead of glory. Drink, yourself, and stagger!
The cup in the LORD's right hand will come around to you, and shame will come upon your glory!
Mic 2:1 Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil upon their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand.
Lu 11:35 Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness.
1Co 8:9 Only take care lest this liberty of yours somehow become a stumbling block to the weak.
1Co 8:13 Therefore, if [cool warm-weather clothing] food is a cause of my brother's falling, I will never eat [display my body-parts] meat, lest I cause my brother to fall:
Song 2:7 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the hinds of the field, that you stir not up nor awaken love until it please.
So 3:5 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the hinds of the field, that you stir not up nor awaken love until it please.
So 8:4 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that you stir not up nor awaken love until it please.
Instead of tuning in to to see the silly shenanigans of king-bee Hefner funding and playing the casual pseudo-polygamist in his artificial lavishly-extravagent bimbo-ized playgrounds of sporty-blond semi-voluptuousness, the laughably-disgusting bikinied and partially-bared boobies of young-adult floozies flirting around on other cable channels, suffer to endure the incessantly-repetitive onslaught of arrogant-twit mopheaded anchoresses and commentatoresses jawflapping their feminist-sexist men-mimicry and impudence on Fox and CNN, or the barefooted-girl gymnasts on community cable, I sometimes like to get my no-disturbing-pictures news from other sources of electromagnetic propagation.
Speaking of radio again, even one "conservative" talk-show host laments the soft porn in media and elsewhere which he advises his listeners to simply "not watch." That of course was not invented by him; both Solomon and the New-Testament writers have instructed the prudent to avoid evil people and not associate with the wicked. Regrettably, the host I have in mind narrowmindedly presumes that homosexuals are "fixed" genetically or however in their same-sex effeminate and sodomite proclivities, instead of him rightly assuming and stating that such wrong-headed orientation always originates simply because of a defiantly-rebellious choice of the homopervert to be deviant against common-sense, nature, and particularly even the slightest influence of Biblical enlightenment within the general human environment.
The honest realize (and the frank admit) that men are sexual creatures (as are women) however, and though porn is not the answer, it is certainly not the luridity in print or on screen which should get the full blame for sexual degradation in society. Amen.
One of the things that that self-puffing talk-show host has not as yet (to my knowledge) mentioned, is that women in general would be better off being domestic by staying at home taking care of housework and the toddler kids rather than trying to get a job out in general public view and thus chauvenistically butting in both to compete against and harass men out in the males-dominated workplace:
1Tim 2:8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in seemly apparel, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire
10 but by good deeds, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
Titus 2:3 Bid the older women likewise to be reverent in behavior, not to be slanderers or slaves to drink; they are to teach what is good,
4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,
5 to be sensible, chaste, domestic, kind, and submissive to their husbands, that the word of God may not be discredited.
6 Likewise urge the younger men to control themselves.
Related to the above Scripture is the phenomenon of some of those women who have called in to the talk-show host for counsel or to express their opinions have complained that they feel that men look at them not honorably as equal partners of business-transaction worth but rather as sex objects. The host has wisely reminded them that the sexual nature of men is both visual and aggressive.....qualities lacking in the inferior-gender weaker sex (though he, to my knowledge, has not used those exact Biblically-concordant terms).
Indeed, the visual component of sexual stimulation for men is proven by the inclusion of the contents of the Song of Solomon in Scripture, where the LORD through author Solomon lets the king describe the bodily pulchritude of his beloved for general-public readership to non-obscenely read and benefit by.
God's first written command to humans was:
Ge 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
A lot we have seen on the nature and history channels of TV has portrayed the "have dominion...." part of the verse above. But the "be fruitful and multiply" part is woefully deficient, despite the wacko-nutcase overpopulationists who decry progenic human reproduction (in view of VAST yet non-populated land areas on this planet). Being fruitful and multiplying obviously involves suggestion of primal female nudity described in the Old-Testament book of Genesis, Leviticus 18 and 20, Isaiah 3 & 20 & 47 & 57, Ezekiel 16 and 23, Hosea 2, and so on....plus the consequential "laying with" sexual intercourse alluded to in Ge 19:33, Ge 19:35, Ge 30:16, Ge 34:2, Ge 35:22, De 22:22, De 22:25, De 22:29, 1Sa 2:22, 2Sa 11:4, 2Sa 12:24, 2Sa 13:14, etc. and the "going in to" copulation inferred in Ge 16:4, Ge 29:23, Ge 29:30, Ge 30:4, Ge 38:2, Ge 38:9, Ge 38:18, Jud 16:1, Ru 4:13, 2Sa 12:24, 2Sa 16:22, 1Ch 2:21, 1Ch 2:24, 1Ch 7:23, Es 2:13, and Eze 23:44.
Neither NON-marital, mixed-gender general-public-view, mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/socksless female exhibitionism (particularly during seasonably warm weather), nor porn in print or on screen, results in obeying God's command to literally lovingly-and-tenderly suck and fuck for producing offspring.....no matter what planet, star, or galaxy anyone intends to visit, explore, and get lost at:
1Co 7:1 Now concerning the matters about which you wrote. It is well for a man not to touch a woman.
1Co 7:5 Do not refuse one another except perhaps by agreement for a season, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, lest Satan tempt you through lack of self-control.
1Ti 5:11 But refuse to enrol younger-women widows; for when they grow wanton against Christ they desire to marry,
1Ti 5:14 So I would have younger women marry, bear children, manage the households, and give the enemy no cause to revile us.
And, just for kicks against those pseudo-"scholar" early-errant-Greek-text anti-Erasmus textual apostates:
1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.
