Intelligent Life in Outer Space?

May 10, 2023 | Blog | 0 comments

Have you considered if there is intelligent life in outer space? 

This popular idea only makes sense if viewed from an evolutionary viewpoint. In other words, if life evolved on Earth by natural processes, then why not other places in the universe. But what does a Christian worldview, based on the Bible, tell us about intelligent life in outer space? 

During creation week, God made the sun, moon and stars four days AFTER beginning the process of creating the entire universe. Why did God make them? “For signs and for seasons, and for days and years(Genesis 1:14)”. The Earth was center stage, and the sun, moon, and stars were created for helping us on Earth measure the passage of time among other things. In the Old Testament, many passages distinguish between heaven and Earth, always giving Earth a special place. Isaiah 66:1 says, “Thus says the Lord, the heaven is my throne, and the Earth is my footstool.” The Earth is apparently a very unique spot in the universe.

But there are even more compelling theological reasons that point only to the earth being inhabited by intelligent life. In Romans 8:22, it states that “the whole creation groans” because of Adam’s sin. When Adam sinned, the entire universe was affected, even outer space. Every year stars explode in supernova events throughout the universe.  Here is the problem, If there were intelligent life on other planets, then why would a just God afflict them with death because of what Adam did here on Earth? Death exists because if it didn’t we would live forever separated from our Maker. Jesus overcame death and made a way for us to come back into fellowship with our Maker. The penalty for sin is death. Jesus paid that penalty with his death on the cross. If intelligent life existed elsewhere, those beings would also be affected by sin’s action and subjected to death, just like stars are decaying. They would have no opportunity for being saved and God wants all to come to salvation. Intelligent life exists only upon Earth!
