During the sermon he illustrated one of his points by talking about the imminent possibility of the US or Russia putting a man on the moon. Though there's little spiritual value here, what he said I found nonetheless interesting, if only for the reasons that Tozer's a personal hero, he's always so wise, and it's fun to here his comments on non-Scriptural matters.
I transcribed his comments as follows:
Somebody’s going to put a man on the moon one of these days. What anyone would want to do it for I can’t imagine. It’s a dusty place. You’ll sink to your waist in cosmic dust if you went there. There’s no atmosphere there, you’d have to wear one of those Buck Rogers space helmets. You couldn’t walk around because the gravitational pull is so light that you’d go floating away. And the whole thing’s messed up.
There’s no reason for anybody to go there. Look at all you got out here in western Canada. Look at what all they’ve got out here in the western United States. Look at all we can do with we’ve got. We’ve got go floating away to the moon. I don’t know why, I’m sure.
So either Russia or the US will put a man up there, probably in 1962, and maybe they’ll miss their first shot or two, and we’ll have the terrible spectacle of a man they can’t bury and can’t find and can’t locate and can’t stop and can’t doing anything with floating around till the judgment day in an aluminum capsule. Wouldn’t that be a terrible thing?
I don’t know who’ll go up, but oh boy I know who won’t! I know who won’t! I can’t tell you who they’ll send, but I know who they won’t send! Unless of course they put me in irons or something and chuck me in and say, “See ya later.” Because I just wouldn’t go. I’m satisfied with the earth …
If you haven't heard Tozer preach, you might listen to a sermon or two. He has a sense of humor, but far more imporant, his words are charged with the weight of their Scriptural wisdom.
