Christians, why did God create billions of planets and galaxies in the universe?

We live in a universe with billions of planets and galaxies. My question is why did God create them when it makes no difference to our salvation and what purpose do they serve?

    Not a Christian, but either way we know for a fact that no celestial objects (stars, planets, moons, asteroids, comets..etc) are magically created. We see star systems being born and dying in the hundreds of thousands using space bound telescopes. 

    It's not a theory with tiny bits of evidence. It's a repeatedly observed fact.

    As far as I see it. There is only one. Why is it called a planet if there isn't life on it? Or is there? Why is Earth even called a planet? To take your focus on Earth away. That's probably why. For those who are lost to keep searching.

    There is a school of thought within, and external as well, to Christianity called Process theology. It states that "creation" is still occurring as stars, planets, etc are being formed, aging and dying. The same may be said of life in its many forms and manifestations. We don't have full understanding as to how all the universe affects us as a species, but we should face the fact that it may not be all about us. There may be other beings in the universe as well.

    To make it appear that every. thiing has existed ,, and will pretty. much remain so . So we won't be affraid to leave our mother's. lap for. fear God. will punish us if we said something bad . He lets us grow to eventually see that there must be a loving God.

    To visibly show us how big and powerful he is. The universe has neither center nor edge. Like God himself, its infinite.

    Psalm 19:1 KJV — To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

    He wants us to think of him every time we gaze up at the heavens. We here do.

    Well, why stop at a million when you can do a billion? After all, it takes a vast universe to give rise to all the elements needed to create life. And the Creator is not known for being stingy. He over-abounds in generosity as proven by the gloriously rich, diverse and massive provisions on planet Earth, fully stocked for the first humans to benefit from.

    Gee, maybe He didn't create the universe just for us? And who knows how many beloved children God might have on some of those billions of other planets?

    Prove "billions of planets and galaxies in the universe".  Prove it.  Not with fake photoshop from "NASA" (they even admit it is photoshop).  But with your own personal experience.  You mean you can't?  Well then why do you believe it?  Because someone told you to.  Hmmm, how interesting.  As for me, I believe the Bible, because it proved itself to be the Word of God.  Those that want you to believe things the opposite of the Bible, are deceived themselves so that you will also deny the Bible and go to hell.  Here is the truth: The Lord Jesus Christ is God. Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, or not. The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell.

    Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ means being forgiven all sins past and future and means going to heaven. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing on Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death.
