According to a Newsbeat article from BBC, the $100 million project to search for aliens is yet to find anything. 1 It is a ten year project. According to the article, Professor Stephen Hawking said, ‘Somewhere in the cosmos, perhaps, intelligent life may be watching these lights of ours.’
# Can aliens exist?
The Bible explains that all life was created. According to Colossians 1:16 Jesus is the Creator, ‘For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him.’ The passage mentions ‘Him’ [Jesus] three times to clearly establish Him as the Creator.
# Jesus did create invisible beings.
We know there are angels. They are normally invisible, but many people in the Bible saw them and they played an important role in the history of Israel. Some of them rebelled against God and they are the devil and his demonic kingdom. 2 Aliens are not regarded as angels. Till now they are just science fiction characters. So Jesus did not create aliens.
# The Bible does not mention aliens.
If aliens are real, why does the Holy Spirit, who knows all God’s doings, not mention them in Scripture? As proved by all the searches, aliens do not exist. They only exist in the minds of people who desperately want them to be real. The idea comes from the ruler of this world, the devil who controls the whole world. 3 He tries to convince people that there are aliens. Then the Bible is not true, God is not the Creator, and Jesus’ work on the cross was unnecessary.
# Why waste billions searching for aliens?
The devil inspires the unbelieving world to spend billions on the search for aliens. The reason is, that as long as people hope there might be aliens, special creation is a myth. The search is for advanced aliens who seeded life on earth, and there could be many planets where life might have evolved. Therefore there is no reason to take note of the Bible and prepare for eternal life.
The devil dearly loves his agenda of aliens. Unfortunately it will cause people who believe his lies, to miss God’s eternal Kingdom.
