After much research, and thanks to responsible investigations by people like John Greenewald, we are coming to grips with what we (my husband and I) have believed for years about UFOs, aliens, and government. Where does all this leave us Christians about all we've been taught? Though of a metaphysical mind, we do follow Jesus' teachings and 'walk the walk.' Would appreciate feedback from anyone as we try to put the puzzle together. Ladyhawke in MT.

Hello and welcome ladyhawke to the Blackvault. The key word is what we have been "taught" but you group all Christians into one pot. One thing I have learned, is that between all the different Christian religions, they are as varied in Bible interpretation as can be. About the only thing they seem to agree on is that Jesus was the Son of God, and died for our sins on the cross. The other things they teach and believe about other Bible readings and passages is different as light and day. One will teach one thing and another is completely opposite. To one drinking and dancing is a sin, others not at all, and some are shaking rattlesnakes every Sunday. With out mentioning anyone in particular, just say the word metaphysical, and you are right in with the Devil. They may be first to condemn anyone for thinking UFO's exist. ( which is not the same as extraterrestrial belief) Does not seem that Christian religions can agree on very much, so when you say "What we were taught", I ask by who, and about what. Pick Door # 1 though door # 101, is about how many different teachings are out of Christian upbringings on the very same subject.

To me, the key word is UFO, as in, Unidentified flying object. Can you think of any better deception than aliens? For many, the existence of aliens puts religion in a whole new light. Who would gain the most from doubt and confusion in regards to faith? None other than our adversary, the devil. This is just one possibility.

If an ET knocked on my from door and said he just landed from another galaxy, it would not alter my belief in God whatsoever.

Mine neither, but for some, unfortunately, it would.

Sorry to butt in on a discussion. If you believe in God and do no one else a harm then you can believe in "whichever" God you want. He is of many names and many beliefs but one thing is always real: do no harm, do good to others. God is such a powerful and mighty being that we may not be ready to comprehend everything he did. This said why do we expect that aliens races were not created by him as well?
Meeting other species, extra-terrestrials would not shake my belief of God.

Though I don't consider myself religious, I do believe in a higher power. I don't believe I would feel any different if an Alien knocked on my door.

I did believe in a god at one time. Research into aliens wasn't really what started me thinking that the god I was taught about doesn't exist, but the close minded attitude of the religion I was raised in regards to other beings besides the bibles heavenly creatures and humans. As if the heavenly beings in the bible being extra-terrestrials and not this being that had no beginning and no end somehow invalidated his existence and all "his words " in the bible. Its that attitude of retarding peoples thirst for knowledge and jnderstandng that drove me away. Now I just don't care if there is a good and I'm scared grays are going to abduct me with the same callous attitude that mankind treats lab rats. But at the same time, while fearful, I understand that if there were beings with these capabilities then it means the universe isn't human centered and we are no more important in the vast scheme of this than the insects when we mow our lawn. So while it's humbling and scarey to me, it does invite the thought hat maybe some generations in the future Will reach that level and "meet " god and find out he's not the vengeful dick the bible tells of but a being truly wise and loving. If there is a god I imagine it being nothing like us. And a being no matter how powerful that uses fear to get recognition is too insecure for my adulation.
