Ya know, I see your point. In fact as I was reading the OP...the criteria for abduction and possession used by the OP...could be applied to Abraham,
Moses, Joshua, Ezekiel, Elija, Elisha, Daniel, Mary, Paul, John, and so on.
That is my point...the premise as presented is askew.
I am a Christian and my faith only grows...as does my studies. Jesus said that "...in my Father's house are many mansions."
This can be interpreted literally, but I also know that scripture works on many levels...literal, metaphorical, symbolic...as such, I believe that
Jesus meant there are many planes of existence in our universe. I believe science, history, archeology all support the Bible...and I believe science
validates many levels of existence.... including alien life.
That is not to say all alien life forms are bad nor good...not all men are bad or good. We can judge a tree by the fruit it bears.
If you read the accounts of Ezekiel..or that Elijah went up into the heavens on a wheel... one could make the case that there are some good aliens/
angels/ dimensional beings... or that God rides a spiritual craft with wheels and fire and a humming noise that causes backdrafts that looks like
bronze...which means that God and the angels ride craft...which means that not all creatures that ride craft are bad...which means that some that ride
craft are good...which Biblically shoots holes in the premise of the OP.
I magine the New Jerusalem of the Book of revelation...a massive city 4 square coming down to earth... and landing....in my mind it would look similar
to the "mothership" landing in Close Encounters...
Just a thought....Do we really thibnk that God only loves the human race? In the entirity of the world, the oceans, the heavens...do we think God only
offers salvation to humans....
Animals are not as smart as people ...at least not most of the time. But I do know animals are not as dumb as some claim. If they were smart enough to
bow to Jesus at his birth...if they were smart enough to abide by God as they gathered to be put on the Ark of Noah...surely, they respect God. As
such, they recognize His omnipotence and who He is... which means they see what even some humans do not see... and if God loves the birds of the field
enough to feed them...and loves the lillies of the field enough to cloth them in wonderous blossoms... and to save them from a flood...likewise God
would save them in the end.
