Does life exist on other planets? Frett Board: If life does exist on other planets, how come we haven’t had any contact with them, and why are we isolated from all other life forms in the universe? What kind of creatures can we expect to find? Will they be like us, or will they be like the monsters you see in horror movies?

These are the questions I am going to be addressing using the Bible as my guide. I know that most of you are saying, “The Bible doesn’t say anything about aliens from outer space.” And you are right. The Bible doesn’t say anything about space aliens, but the Bible has a lot to say on this subject if you know where to look for the answers.


Let’s start with why we haven’t had any contact with aliens and are isolated. I believe the answer to this question lies in us. The Bible tells us that we, as human beings, are evil. Many people believe that human beings are born good and learn how to be bad when the opposite is true. We are born selfish and have had to learn how to be good. You don’t have to teach any little child to lie, and it comes

naturally to them. In Matthew 7:11, Jesus says that we, as human beings, are evil. “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” Many people believe that evil only counts in the things that we do. Still, the Bible says in Matthew 15:19, “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”

God is more concerned about what you think and not what you do. God knows that if evil is in your thoughts, it is just a matter of time before your thoughts manifest themselves into evil actions. Many people say, “It doesn’t hurt to look.” Nothing could be further from the truth. What you put into your mind is all that does matter. What do our evil thoughts have to do with aliens? Our studies have everything to

do with aliens not wanting anything to do with us human beings. One of the biggest problems with sin is the blinding that occurs in the sinning process. We can’t see the destructive forces at work in our minds. Almost everybody else around us can see our shortcomings, except for us. We can’t see ourselves, and that’s the reason we are so quick to overlook our flaws and dismiss them as not as bad as other people’s faults.

I believe that the whole human race is evil and condemned to death on Earth’s penal colony. We can see that truth in John 3:18-19 “He who believes in Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light

because their deeds were evil.” I don’t believe it’s an accident that Earth is set in a far corner of the universe, away from all other life forms. We do the same thing with the placement of our prisons. If possible, we place our prisons as far away from society as possible so as not to have a bad influence on our people.

It’s so easy for us to justify our sins; all we have to do is turn on the television set, watch just about any program, and say to ourselves, “I’m glad I’m not that bad.” We compare ourselves to people who are perverted, violent, and wicked, and we walk away feeling good about ourselves. If you can imagine a planet where the people don’t have a single evil thought in their minds and are always looking for ways to help their fellow man, it’s then when we can finally see ourselves for what we are.
