Planets with a Purpose

Aug 3, 2022 | Blog | 0 comments


Have you considered why God made other planets besides earth?

If other planets do not support life, why do they exist? First, the planets help confirm the passage of time. The moon and sun provide the primary chronology for time passage, but other planets provide a confirmation. Another purpose for the planets is that they act to stabilize the solar system. This fact was not discovered until the 1790s by Pierre-Simon Laplace. Each planet was created by God with a specific size, gravity, rotation rate, magnetism, chemical makeup and axis tilt. Each specific property helps keep the solar system safe and stable. The sun’s gravity pulls on the planets while the planets pull on each other.
Gravity is the mysterious force that acts through great distances of empty space. The gravitational attraction between the Earth, the sun, and the other planets is continually adjusted as the locations change in their orbits. Their elliptical orbits prevent them from plummeting into each other, but it is gravity which is the “glue” that holds our solar system and universe together. The other planets in our solar system exert a gravitational pull that helps stabilize the Earth’s distance from the sun. This keeps the Earth from approaching too close or moving too far from the sun. Planets were created by God to keep Earth in both a stable and safe orbit.
