Why spend billions to search for aliens?

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.

Conclusion

The devil dearly loves his agenda of aliens.  Unfortunately it will cause people who believe his lies, to miss God’s eternal Kingdom.

Was the march for science a March away from God?

Various localities around the world took part in the ‘March for Science’ on Saturday, 22 April 2017.  What was it about?  Three different kinds of science were lumped together: operational science, climate change and the ‘science’ of evolution.  Nobody has problems with testable, observable, repeatable science.  It serves society very well.  We don’t want to comment on climate change, but would like to say the following about ‘evolution science.’

# Why is Darwinian evolution called science? 

It was not established as science by repeated experiments, because that is not possible.  You cannot test past events repeatedly.  Darwinian evolution is an absolute dud when it comes to scientific benefits to society through practical applications.   It is practical science that gives inventions, applications and progress to society.

#  God and the ‘god’ of evolution are opposites 

Darwinian evolution is an attempt to dethrone the Creator God.

  • As the Owner and Ruler of His creation, God decreed that forgiveness of sins is only possible through the exchange of innocent blood.
  • In the Old Testament it was through the sacrifice of animals.  It was a pointer to the coming Redeemer, Jesus.
  • From the New Testament we know that the Son of God, Jesus, is the Lamb who died in our place for forgiveness of our sins.

 

#  Why is forgiveness of sins such a threat?

  • Forgiveness of our sins rescues us from the devil’s wiles.
  • Scripture tells us that the ruler of the world, the devil, deceives the whole world. 1  He hates the verse, ‘For He [God] has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption [recovery out of slavery under the devil], the forgiveness of sins. 2
  • Jesus forgives sins (Jesus testified to it when friends brought a paralytic to Him, ‘…so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins….’ 3).
  • God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit were all involved in creation.  They are all involved in freeing us from the bondage of Satan.

#  What the devil hates?

The devil hates it that people can be freed and saved to inherit eternal life in Jesus, which he cannot.  If he can convince people that there was no Creator, then logically people assume there is no Saviour.  Then they are left in their sins with no forgiveness.  O, the devil loves that very much!

Conclusion

We know the world did not evolve, because it was created by the omnipotent God.  Therefore we know that when He forgives it is effective.  The Saviour came to save, and it works all the time. Darwinian evolution is a deception with the intent to lead people away from freedom in Jesus.

How to incur the curse of God

To curse the Jews is dangerous, since it invites the curse of an eternal, omnipotent mighty God.

Criticism against Israel is an old thing.  In our politically correct world, the question is: how does one answer the criticism that Israel is a ‘disgrace’ with its treatment of Arabs, et cetera?  Are the Arab nations justified to call for the destruction of Israel?  We would like to propose a possible answer out of many:

#  It is dangerous to denounce Israel 

To curse or rail or call for boycotts against Israel invites trouble.  That is because God said to   Abraham, ‘I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.’ Abraham was the ancestor, the founding father of the Jewish nation.  God called him specifically.  So to side against Israel is to side against God.  The question is, is it better to face the curse of God, or the curse of the haters of Israel?  For us, it is too dangerous to trifle with His nation and court trouble with God.

#  How honest are the Arabs when they accuse Israel of wrongdoing? 

  • On May 14, 1948 the State of Israel was officially declared into existence.  President Harry Truman of the United States almost immediately recognised the new Jewish State, as did Russia on May 18.
  • On May 15, 1948, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon invaded Israel.  They attacked from the north, south and east. 2
  • The Arabs out numbered them in soldiers, armaments and in all other aspects.  British Field Marshal Montgomery visited Palestine just prior to the war.  He predicted it would take the Arabs but eight days to drive the Jews into the sea.
  • After intense fighting from May 15 to June 11, a truce was called by the United Nations.  That gave Israel time to purchase weapons.  When war broke out on 9 July, the Israelis turned the tables and on February 24, 1949 the War of Independence ended.

The obvious question is, what sins did the nation of Israel commit in one day after the declaration of their independence that angered those Arab nations enough that they attacked them?

#  The history of Israel is unique

Quote by Professor William Albright, ‘No other phenomenon in history is quite so extraordinary as the unique event represented by the Restoration of Israel.  In no other time in world history, so far as it is known, has a people been destroyed, and then come back after a lapse of time and reestablished itself.  It is utterly out of the question to seek a parallel for the recurrence of Israel’s restoration after 2,500 years of former history.’ 3

Conclusion

To curse the Jews is dangerous, since it invites the curse of an eternal, omnipotent mighty God.
