Aliens May Exist, but there is Only One God

Whether Aliens are real or not has no bearing on a Biblical Christian Worldview.

Question #1 – How big is the universe?

Answer – Based on current science (here) the universe, in any given direction (that we can see), ends at around 46 billion light-years away. For perspective, a “light-year” is 3.73 trillion miles.

Question #2 – Could there be other sentient beings in the universe?

Answer – Yes. In our galaxy alone there are approximately 60 billion planets that could theoretically sustain life (here). Add to that the fact that there are an estimated 100-200 billion galaxies in the universe (here).

Question #3 – If other life forms were discovered, would that impact a Biblical Christian worldview? 

Answer – No. If our government presented proof that there exists other sentient beings, it should have no impact on the faith and theology of Biblical Christians. The Bible was written specifically for mankind (2 Cor. 3:2, 2 Tim. 3:16-17), not the universe. God sent His only Son to live a perfect life on earth, be crucified for our sins, and be resurrected as evidence that believers will also be resurrected to eternal life in Heaven. There is no reference in the Bible to other life forms in the universe. Scripture is focused exclusively on earth and specifically on humanity, regarding both our sin and our salvation (Eph. 2:8-9). 

Question #4 – Is God all-knowing, all-powerful, and everywhere at the same time?

Answer – Yes, if one accepts the Bible as a basis for defining who God is (Hebrews 4:13, Psalm 147:5, Job 37:16, Job 28:24, 1 John 3:20, Job 42:2, Jeremiah 32:27, Colossians 1:16, Romans 1:20).

Question #5 – Is it possible that our God is limited to earth and mankind?

Answer – No. The answer to question #4 is the key. If one accepts the premise that our God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and exists everywhere at the same time, logically there can only be one God. A god or gods of an alien race (much less the many gods of Buddhists and Hindus) are not possible if one believes our Lord knows everything and can control everything. Said more clearly…

 An all-powerful, all-knowing God can have no peers. 

Our Lord is the ruler, not only of the human race but of any other race(s) that may or may not exist across the universe He created, at the beginning of time.

Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
