What are we to make of the many UFO sightings that have been reported? Have aliens visited earth? What does the Bible say about UFOs and ETs?
Star Trek, Star Wars, ET, Alien, Men in Black, Dr. Who, The X-Files, Guardians of the Galaxy. It is clear that stories of extraterrestrials have captured the imagination of Hollywood and the world. According to a recent survey, more than a third of Americans believe that aliens have visited earth.
Does the Bible talk about UFOs and ETs? Since these are modern terms, we shouldn’t be surprised that the Bible does not directly mention them. On the other hand, the Bible does give us information to help us develop a biblical response to UFOs and ETs. Ultimately, we must allow God’s Word to be our authority in every area.
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. (Psalm 8:3–5)
