“The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s, but the earth hath He given to the children of men.”
In the last 50 years, talk of unidentified flying objects, and beings from other planets has dominated discussions from the Pentagon to the porch.
Do I believe in UFOs with little green men flying around out there? No, not at all. In fact, I don’t think there’s intelligent life in outer space or on other planets.
The evolutionists tell us that because they believe evolution is true, life must have evolved millions of times in the universe. These ideas have captured the imagination of not just the general public, but also large segments of the Church. However, I don’t accept this.
You see, the Bible tells us that God made the earth first. The sun, moon and stars were made for signs and for seasons for the earth. The earth is obviously center stage, on which God made the first man, Adam. And, of course, we know that all human beings who have ever lived are descendants of Adam.
Here’s a point we can’t forget: only descendants of Adam can be saved because Jesus Christ became a man - Paul calls Him the last Adam, a descendant of Adam - so He could die for Adam and all his descendants. If there were other races of people in outer space, there would be no salvation for them.
Is there life in outer space? The world might say yes, and pursue it with high-tech instruments and research money, but when we start from the Bible we have the correct way of thinking about this subject. The Bible may be silent about animal life and plant life in outer space, but there cannot be a race of biological intelligent beings for the reasons given above.
The next time someone tells you there is life on other planets, ask him of her to provide solid proof. When that doesn’t happen, open your Bible and see what the Creator of the universe has to say.
