As a follower of the bible i strongly feel like pointing out that this is an abuse of the said verse, it is not purposed for a case like that. it's message is for those who are under pressure when they are trying to preach the good word, being an astronaut at Nasa got nothing to do with faith, just science.
2 Timothy 4. 17 But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion’s mouth.
I am also a strong believer. I did not intend that for making successful scientific discoveries. It was more a metaphorical picture than a physical meaning. Just to show that when you have Christ in your life, you're limitless. Without God, life may not go the way you want it to... (not saying that it will go the way you want it to WITH Christ either). But with Christ, you can do anything. I did not intend it to be the way that you're describing it.
You will not stop abusing the verse for your own gain with other words..
you know, this is the grandest reason why so many have an ignorant perspective on the bible today and in some cases even hates it, people tell lies about it and that's proven by all the people that seemingly liked this work but does not get it's scripts true message and ends up using this as a definition and the results is that their faith does not make sense because it's dunkelheit, satan wins with his spiritual 'poison' as the bible describes it.
stop letting him use you man.
if your faith is one of it's kind and not biblical with no intent on correcting itself then i cannot help you, ive pointed out the flaw but it's you who have to fix it.
Yeah I know, it was really hard to get the lighting right. I brought the 3D model into Photoshop, and my graphics card is only integrated and it has a hard time handling the 3D in photoshop. Therefore it was extremely slow and delayed when I tried moving around the lighting. The lighting was also just hard to get into the right position anyway. lol But whatever, I tried. lol
