Roswell Aliens Live Once Again


This story about a death-bed affidavit from one of the Roswell incident principals once again raises the specter (and increases the likelihood) that the alien visits in the middle part of the last century were real.

I've always believed in the alien visits, because I myself witnessed three moving objects in the sky early one morning waiting on a school bus, when I was twelve (that would have been 1968). These were objects the like of which I had never seen before, or again. Three colored dots, alternately moving erratically (in formation) and then stationary, for several minutes before, poof, they just vanished.

So, I've never really reconciled what this issue of aliens, if in fact it is true, really means for our Christian faith. If they really are out there, what are the implications, do you think? Or do you believe the Bible proves there could be no such thing?

Sir Chuck, witnessed but not abducted (yet!) :-)

  1. Actually it means no more then the discovery of the New World. Indians had to be absorbed into our frame of reference to but they were and Christian doctrine was not changed.
    If aliens are animals they are just like any other animals. If they have souls they are either fallen or unfallen. If they are fallen, either they are saved by the way humans are saved or a provision is made specifically for them and another specifically for us.
    But in any case they were created by God if they exist.
    The chief danger is not theological but in practical ethics-what should our relationship to them be?

  2. Well, considering we're trying to build a wall to keep Mexicans out of the U.S., I would assume our relationship to the aliens would not be welcoming. Unless the liberals were in power, in which case we'd welcome them with open arms even as they focused their laser beams on us.

    Wouldn't it be neat if they came to us preaching the Good News, which they had received from Christ around 33 AD?

    Sir Chuck, always hopeful
