#353 - Charlie Duke Estimate: $1,000+

"I believe UFO's are counterfeit signs and wonders"

Fascinating ALS signed “Charlie Duke, Apollo Astronaut,” seven pages, 8.5 x 11, January 16, 1984. Lengthy letter that features Duke expatiating on his Roman Catholic faith, the role of religion in every day life, and the existence of revelations, with Duke offering his thoughts on the difference between a true revelation and a counterfeit sign: "The Bible says the devil will do counterfeit signs, wonder and miracles (2 Thessalonians 2:9 and Matthew 24:24) and I believe UFO's are counterfeit signs and wonders. Believing this I asked God directly in prayer according to Matthew 7:7 and John 14:14 and God answered my prayer directly confirming my belief." Duke opens the letter by dismissing the notion that astronauts who have been in space become born again Christians: "I know personally every astronaut who has been in space and less than 10 of them are born again Christians. Most of them probably don't even believe in God as a personal loving God. There are no (not one) astronauts who have become preachers and hold meetings making thousands of dollars. Jim Irwin does have an organization called High Flight Foundation, which is dedicated to spreading the Gospel of Jesus. I have seen his financial statements and the highest income I have ever seen is $40,000 for one year. From this, he pays rent, salaries, travel expenses, etc. Little is left for his personal use. He drives a Volkswagen." In fine condition.
