Fact a Day: June 29th

The Facts on UFO’s and other Supernatural Phenomena (Harvest House, 1992), p. 42


Does the Bible say anything about UFOs?


Does the Bible answer the dilemma of UFOs one way or the other? We think it does. While the Bible does not comment directly upon UFOs, it also does not comment directly upon a large number of other topics, such as abortion, euthanasia and genetic engineering. However, it does offer principles by which all of these subjects may be evaluated. Given what we know from the phenomena we are experiencing, the Bible does have a good deal to teach about the subject. If UFO phenomena are occultic, then the Bible condemns involvement with them as much as any other occultic pursuit (e.g., Deuteronomy 18:9-12). If the UFO entities give antibiblical messages, encourage the pursuit of the occult, and deny the biblical teaching on Jesus Christ, God, salvation, biblical authority, etc., then it is incredible that a Christian can think that UFOs could be divine. Certainly the divine angels of God would never present teachings to mankind that dishonor Christ, oppose God’s way of salvation, and undermine biblical truth in a dozen different categories.
