Who's to say Jesus Christ himself was not infact an 'alien'. Miracles performed could possibly be attributed to this, since we do not know what
other beings not from this planet are capable of.
First, let me say thank you for not attacking the Christian faith directly. There are many across the globe that do question the faith, have questions
regarding it, or question it's viablility, and that is fair. I wish more ATS members displayed the same tact as yourself...
Your question "The Bible A Science Fiction Story?" to me is an obvious no. While your descriptions on Christ and the miracles are not totally
accurate (for the most part they are) I totally understand and follow where you are going.
To me I see it the other way around! For example, I do not discredit anyone for what they see and classify as "ufos". I have had one particular
experience in my life that was completely Mind Blowing and I will NEVER forget it!!! Many would say, it was a UFO, a Spaceship, or Alien Craft.
It is in my opinion the ufo sightings people are trying to describe is the best way the average person can equate it, such as from the mainstream
media like movies, books, etc...
To me, it is supernatural sighting of Angelic or Demonic forces. While many may scoff at the idea, that's fine, I can only contribute from what I
know and have seen.
Check this out from Ezekiel Chapter 1:13
In the midst of the living beings there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches darting back and forth among the living
beings. The fire was bright, and lightning was flashing from the fire.
14And the living beings ran to and fro like bolts of lightning.
15Now as I looked at the living beings, behold, there was one wheel on the earth beside the living beings, for each of the four of them.
16The appearance of the wheels and their workmanship was like sparkling beryl, and all four of them had the same form, their appearance and
workmanship being as if one wheel were within another.
17Whenever they moved, they moved in any of their four directions without turning as they moved.
18As for their rims they were lofty and awesome, and the rims of all four of them were full of eyes round about.
19Whenever the living beings moved, the wheels moved with them And whenever the living beings rose from the earth, the wheels rose also.
20Wherever the spirit was about to go, they would go in that direction. And the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living beings
was in the wheels.
What is desribed above, many would proclaim a UFO!
As far as poking holes into religon, thats easy even for me to do, as there are many churches teaching false doctrines like the ever growing
"Prosperity Gospel" and so on.
As for my faith and belief in the Word of God that's different. Christ and His Word has proven itself to me time and time again, and continually does
so. I can just as easily poke holes in the doctrine of evolution as others would say, can poke holes in my faith. You see, what many fail to realize
is so simple, be it Christianty, Judisim, Darwin, Science, Athieism, or Ice Cream Gods, they are beliefs and require an act of faith...
I am not interested in getting into a "burden of proof" debate in this thread, I can go to the Religious Conspiracy section for that anytime
Good Post PeaceUK !!!
