    I’m pretty interested in the aliens, UFO/UAP subject, but the author of the article leaves two vital verses out, and doesn’t even seem aware of them:

    “And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.””
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28‬:‭18‬-‭20‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

    “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.””
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭10‬:‭19‬-‭20‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

    Jesus has ALL AUTHORITY (Matthew 28) and He gives some of that authority to believers (Luke 10).

    Aliens and UFOs are very often NOT harmless, and comparing them to marsupials misses alot of the alien folklore. If they are a danger to us, then we, through Jesus and His promises, have authority over them.

    JTK,

    You’ve taken that Lukan passage and made it do things it ain’t meant to do…I’m not sure about your last sentence either….

    “ If they are a danger to us, then we, through Jesus and His promises, have authority over them.”

    What does that mean? We rebuke them in Jesus’ name?

    Confused

    Whenever I hear Christians talk about “taking authority” I’m reminded of when my grandfather tried to “take authority” over a bobcat…evidently, the cat was a heathen…

    It’s a tangential thought, but I’m reminded of David Nicholls pointing out that theories of sovereignty in political theory predictably emerge when the actual real-world legitimacy of a sovereign is in doubt. The Anglican political historian John Neville Figgis once remarked that every theory of sovereignty looks idiotic to people who don’t take the founding premise of the theory as given or understand what in the real world the theory was promulgated to deal with in the first place, which is why he made a point of writing a whole treatise on the evolution of the theory of divine right of kings as a reaction to claims of papal supremacy. ;D

    Today Pastor Jack Hibbs shared a Biblical perspective on the present interest of “aliens & ufo’s that every Christian should watch.

  7. The New Victor says:

    Aliens and UFOs are Social Contagion to the max. Science provides the answer: no, at least in our galactic neighborhood. Despite people like
    Sagan lobbying for massive wastes of moneym on things like on SETI. I felt betrayed by Sagan when I read Contact back in the day. Even the avowed atheist still pined for a designed purpose of the universe. Alien creators to him. Still an intelligent First Cause.

    So many interesting links! My observations on a few:

    -I think it will be a decade before we have really done a full post-mortem on COVID. It took us about that long before we really understood AIDS.
    -I hope that Saddleback Church doesn’t fall apart under the present administration.
    -We can speculate all we want about space aliens while the world continues to fall apart. I’d rather concentrate on getting the gospel out.
    -The next presidential election may be more chaotic than the last one, and I find that very concerning.

    a decade? mebbe, but many i the health care field refuse the vaccine now……….

    Ah the Pandemic Postmortem — reminding us of the deadly cures we attempted. No one still wants to talk about the cost of these remediations to protect the global north upon the long term fortunes of the global south. Those prices are yet coming due along with those to come because of our sacred war for Ukraine’s independence.

    And Francis Collins that paragon of public christianity — that seven mountain occupier — that saintly partner of Pope Fauci — did he not go out beautifully — alas he may be the one publicly taken down in the end.

    And will we never seriously look at the place of conflict of interest in these government agencies that are so driven by grant giving and getting and so close to policy decisions and so partnered with medical capitalism?

    Anyway I appreciate the article.
