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.

The danger of Biologos

The apostle Paul warned us, ‘Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise Biologosand distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.’ 1

Do we have evidence that it happens today? Yes.  Biologos is an organisation that invites the Church to see the harmony between science and biblical faith through an evolutionary understanding of God’s creation. Why is it wrong?

Creation in six days by an omnipotent God can never be reconciled to what Biologos erroneously calls ‘science,’ meaning ‘evolution.’  Either God/Jesus is the Creator, or not.2  If all of nature evolved, then obviously God is not omnipotent; then He has no authority to call people to prepare for eternal life through obedience to Him. Not only that, if God is not the Creator, who will prepare the new heavens and earth, and the New Jerusalem? Who will resurrect the saints?

Jesus warns, ‘If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in His Father’s glory with the holy angels.’ 3 People who change God’s Word, sin. The Holy Spirit never gave man the right to change the inspired Bible.

God gave man the science mandate in Genesis 1:28, ‘Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’  Man can investigate how nature functions. Based on that, he can develop technological applications. However, God never told man to investigate nature’s origins. The reason is very simple: God created it and the information is in the Bible.

To replace creation by God with evolution, means man has given himself the right to decide that the Bible is wrong. That is rebellion against God. Man has no interests in the origin of the world besides what the Bible reveals, namely that God created it. There is nothing else to say about it. Evolution, as taught by Biologos, even contradicts the words of Jesus, ‘…at the beginning the Creator made them male and female.…’ 4  

What is the agenda of Biologos? It is to distort the truth and eventually confuse and destroy people’s faith in the Bible. The reason is that any person who believes that Scripture is wrong about the origin of the universe and life on earth, can have no assurance that the rest of the Bible is true. Why would one part be wrong and other parts true? Who knows which parts are true, if Genesis 1 is not? If the Holy Spirit was wrong about Genesis 1, what about salvation and that Jesus is the Son of God?

The moral of the story? Watch out for savage wolves that are dressed like sheep. They destroy, and their destruction is eternal. Rather believe the Bible, because there is enough scientific evidence about the miracle of creation. We don’t have to be ashamed of the Gospel.
