VIDEO: St. Thomas Aquinas Versus Elon Musk! Musk Plans To Escape The General Judgement By Colonizing Mars! Question 89 Article 5 Whether All Men Will be Present at the Judgment?
Musk will not achieve his goal of colonizing Mars.
God won't allow it.
There will be a General Judgement and all men will be present at the Judgment.
Colonizing Mars or any planet is not going to exclude any man from his particular judgment or the General Judgment. Men will not escape God's Judgement.
First, all the works of men, both holy and profane, will burn up in the fire of the final conflagration.
All men that are still alive at the time, will also burn up in the fire of the final conflagration.
This fire of the final conflagration will rise up from the bowels of the earth to reach a height no greater than 15 cubits above the mountain tops or about 29,050 ft.
This boundary is the same level that the waters of the Deluge reached in the time of Noe to cleanse the world of sin.
The element fire will follow the same path that the element of water took during the time of Noe.
This fact creates a few problems:
If the fire of the final conflagration rises up from the bowels of the earth to reach only 29,050 then any work of man, higher than 29,050 ESCAPES the fire of the final conflagration. Which of course is absurd.
Again, God will not allow the wicked works of men to escape this fire.
This means one thing.
Men will never leave earth.
But the works of men have left earth millions of times over. And this is a problem, which means only one thing: all the works of men that have left the boundary established by the Blessed Trinity will be brought back by the agency of the Angels to below this boundary - so that ALL the works of men burn up when the fire of the conflagration takes place a the end of days.
When will the Angels fulfill their OFFICE of bringing back all the works of men shot into Space?
It may be gradual, or it may be sudden. I would not want to be around when all these works come hurtling to earth.
So, a couple of deductions from all this.
Musk will not achieve his dream of colonizing Mars either:
- Musk dies soon
- Strange events hinder the launch of the Mars Spacecraft
- The Mars Spacecraft blows up during the launch or just after the launch, burning up all the wicked folk who thought they could escape God's Judgment.
Look, your soul is judged at your particular judgment - there is nothing you can do to escape this judgment. All men die - that's ALL.
As for your body - it too will be judged - when your soul is untied to your body at the resurrection of all men, at the end of days.
If your body is above this 29,050 boundary then it stands to reason that your body will not burn up in the Fire of the Final Conflagration and therefore you get to sit out the General Judgment, again this is absurd.
So no, men will not be allow by God and by His Angels to colonize Mars.
Ain't gonna happen.......
Question 89 Those who will judge and those who will be judged at the general judgment
Article 5 Whether all Men Will be Present at the Judgment?
Objection 1: It would seem that men will not all be present at the judgment. For it is written (Mat.19:28): "You . . . shall sit on twelve seats, judging the twelve tribes of Israel." But all men do not belong to those twelve tribes. Therefore it would seem that men will not all be present at the judgment.
Objection 2: Further, the same apparently is to be gathered from Ps.1:5, "The wicked shall not rise again in judgment."
Objection 3: Further, a man is brought to judgment that his merits may be discussed. But some there are who have acquired no merits, such as children who died before reaching the perfect age. Therefore they need not be present at the judgment. Now there are many such. Therefore it would seem that not all will be present.
On the contrary, It is written (Acts 10:42) that Christ "was appointed by God to be judge of the living and of the dead." Now this division comprises all men, no matter how the living be distinct from the dead. Therefore all men will be present at the judgment.
Further, it is written (Apoc.1:7): "Behold He cometh with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him." Now this would not be so unless all were present at the judgment. Therefore, etc.
I answer that, The judicial power was bestowed on Christ as man, in reward for the humility which He showed forth in His passion. Now in His passion He shed His blood for all in point of sufficiency, although through meeting with an obstacle in some, it had not its effect in all. Therefore it is fitting that all men should assemble at the judgment, to see His exaltation in His human nature, in respect of which "He was appointed by God to be judge of the living and of the dead."
Reply to Objection 1: As Augustine says (De Civ. Dei xx, 5), "it does not follow from the saying, 'Judging the twelve tribes of Israel,' that the tribe of Levi, which is the thirteenth, is not to be judged, or that they will judge that people alone, and not other nations." The reason why all other nations are denoted by the twelve tribes is because they were called by Christ to take the place of the twelve tribes.
Reply to Objection 2: The words, "The wicked shall not rise in judgment," if referred to all sinners, mean that they will not arise to judge. But if the wicked denote unbelievers, the sense is that they will not arise to be judged, because they are "already judged" (Jn.3:18). All, however, will rise again to assemble at the judgment and witness the glory of the Judge.
Reply to Objection 3: Even children who have died before reaching the perfect age will be present at the judgment, not to be judged, but to see the Judge's glory.
