Aliens and the Christian

People have believed Aliens have existed for thousands of years. Scientists believe the Pyramids were built by aliens as landing site for their ships, Scientists also say that Egyptian Hieroglyphics depict UFOs on pottery and stones found in Mexico. According to Mayan legend their knowledge was given them by “gods that came from the stars”.
People believe the Bermuda Triangle is an alien hot spot, a place where aliens abduct those sailing or flying through it.
[E.g. Amelia Earhart.]

About two weeks ago at a party with some Christian friends we all got to talking about aliens and if there was any chance of their validity, two of our group believed there could possible be some kind of alien life on another planet, while myself and another of my friends didn’t believe there was.

There is no true evidence of alien life; it is all speculation and conclusions drawn from man’s own wisdom.
Life isn’t an X-Files episode; the government is not hiding an alien body or a crashed alien spacecraft.
As can be easily read anywhere on the internet, in a magazine or a Scientist Journal, any “evidence” of alien life has been refuted, and the “evidence” explained in simple, logical and scientific means.

As a Christian, any possibility of alien life is impossible to me, I will use the Bible as my evidence.
The Bible states that Christ was sent to the earth by God to be a living sacrifice for the salvation of His elect.
Jesus was sent to die on the cross for His people, now, if there where in fact, aliens on another planet, did God send Jesus to die for them too? Did they get the same chance at Salvation that we here on earth got? Or did they not need it, do they even have sin?
Now, if any of these were true, it would immediately make Christ’s sacrifice on the cross useless, to make Christ die twice for the sins of His elect makes His death on the cross worthless.

Now, for the sake of not wanting to start an argument I will end here, and leave the rest for other’s to talk about.
But for me, as a Christian, aliens are an absurdity made up by man’s wild imagination and their own need to believe we “aren’t alone.” I would think that man would like to be the only sentient life in the universe; we are unique and wonderfully made.
What are your thoughts on it? If you believe in aliens, can you honestly, factually, and logically prove to me they are, in face, real?

I must say, you have made some very valid points. Our Savior dying twice for us seems unreal in our black and white minds. But as for me, I choose to trust in Him, and that everything is possible with God. If God made other people somewhere in this universe, I trust that He has a plan for them as well. I'm not going to say aliens are real, but if they are, I'm not going to say that I didn't believe God could do such a thing. For everything is possible through Him. He would have wo... (more »)

I'm a Christian too, but I dont agree with this. I ain't blinded with what Bible says. I think it's weak if your only argument against the issue if aliens are real is 'because the Bible says so' Try doing some more resarches and set aside your religious beliefs for a moment.  Peaceout bud.

Great article, Skyye! I agree with it. I'm a Christian too, and I had been wondering about the whole "aliens" thing. Keep writing! =)

(By the way, the reason this comment is so randomly late, is because we're in the Percy Jackson rp together, and I was looking at your profile, and this title caught my eye. =D )

You make perfect sense in my opinion. :) Keep writing about stuff like this. You've got a good head on your shoulders.

Let me put it this way: The universe is large beyond reckoning. Each star in the sky at night is like our own Sun, complete with planets rotating around it. There are over a billion known and named stars- more than there are people on earth. If you can prove to me that every single one of the billions of planets in space are empty, i will listen. There is  no evidence that aliens exist.  There is no evidence that they don't. Arguing over things so far away taht we could never actually ... (more »)

Almost true Via, I have no tangible evidence that you will belive to prove aliens don't exist. I wish to point out, I do belive there can be, say, a bug, or a plant, on another planet. But I do not belive there is any kind of sentiant life on another planet, because of the reason I gave. According to the Bible and my Faith, there are no such things as aliens.
