Do you not believe that the angels of God cannot disobey?
Bearing in mind nowhere in the bible says the devil is an angel but it does say the devil having his own angels.
Also yhe rebellion war has not begun yet. Thats in revalations which is prophesy to come.
Ps. Them aliens are demon docos are very interesting. Even if i dont believe it.
Aliens may exist however what the religious call demons do not exist.The doctrine of demons are a religious extrapolation to fit a religious agenda(fear mongering) .The word demon in Greek is diabolo which means to cast through a channel.It does not mean an evil spiritual being or a fallen angel or a minion of the other mythic being Lucifer (which word is only used one time in all the scriptures and means… light bearing) or Satan or which simply means adversary.

This was brought up briefly in another topic, but it was never really looked at thoroughly.
A lot of us (including myself) believe that Aliens likely exist (or even that they most definitely do). However, I am curious as to how a religious person, who's religion may have stories of a heaven/hell or similar place, stories of and the concept of sins, stories of prophets, stories of god speaking directly to human beings, Humans being the 'ultimate creation', or Earth being a central focus of the universe, can simultaneously believe that aliens - particularly highly advanced ones - exist?
I don't quite understand how many religious ideologies have concepts like these could really coexist with the existence of alien life (be it insignificant or great).
So for those that are religious and also believe alien life is out there, may I ask how you've come to accept both?
