“And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.”
King James Version (KJV)

The sun lights up the day, the moon lights up the night with the aid of the sun. Mars was created as is. The earth didn 't steal it 's resources.

After being saved, a person will begin to glow like light in darkness. Christians become light to the world after true prayer and sanctity.

This verse is just a reminder that God has it all in control from the beginning

God says it that settled it. Don't try and interpret something that is not their. Let the verse interpret its self.

The economy of words signifies Gods supreme authority. He has no need to justify Himself or His works.

I'm having some difficulty in understanding the last clause, "[He made] the stars also." I've read elsewhere that the words inside the brackets (as well as the last word - "also") are not in the original. They were added during translation as help in understanding the verse. So to add the sentence "He made the stars also." seems to me to be saying God made the stars together with the sun and the moon -- after He has created the heavens and the earth in verse 1. Looks funny to me. The closest (and much easier for me to digest) meaning must be that the stars were (made) to rule the night also. Or if we move a little farther back (v.14), as signs for seasons, etc.
The sun and the moon could have been made after God made the stars (heavens) therefore to say that he made the stars also during or after He made the sun and the moon doesn't fit logic and science.

According to Science Moon doesn't have it's own light, and Moon light borrowed from the Sun.. What this Genesis 1:16 says and What Science says kindly get me the details..
