The Way of the Master hosts have announced plans to send a satellite into orbit that will beam the ‘good news’ across the universe.
The evangelist team plan on blasting Christianity into the final frontier in the hope of transmitting the Gospel to those yet to hear.
The duo have received the backing of Vice President Mike Pence who has contacted the pair to offer his support in what he has called an “exciting opportunity for Christians all over the world.”
Their mission statement reads, “Nowhere in the bible does it say that God limited His creation of man to Earth. If there is life out there, they’ll be fallen creatures like us and in need of salvation. Its our duty as Christians to give them God’s Word so they can come into a relationship with Jesus Christ.”
Ray Comfort proposed the idea after a careful reading of scripture revealed to him that, “it says in Mark 16:15 ‘Go into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature’. Now that doesn’t just mean Earth, but space too. I’m sure missionaries were just as surprised to find tribes living in the rainforests as we would be if we found people living on Mars.”
The news has been met with skepticism from some Christians who question the possibility of life existing elsewhere in the universe. In response to the criticism Kirk says, “What people are doing here are limiting God’s power when they say that. If Jesus’ words can transcend nations, why not planets?”
The popular television personalities are optimistic the project will be up and running by the end of the decade and say it will be part funded by their joint “The Way of the Master” ministry and through public donations.
