Depends on how UFO is being defined. Extra-terrestrial? God and his angels are also extra-terrestrial! But, I assume you are meaning life outside of Earth, but not including heavenly beings. In which case, then, these cases you mentioned aren't "UFO's" In the first example, the things being referred to can be seen in verse one: Now it came to pass in ...

The Bible really doesn't have anything to say on the subject one way or another. Historical writings suggest that some of early Christians believed that this world is only one of many that God has created, and particularly among Gnostic sects there were all sorts of interesting ideas on the subject, (for example, that the many worlds that God had created ...

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints mentions other worlds in their scripture. Doctrine and Covenants 76:23-24 23 For we saw him [Jesus], even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father— 24 That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the ...

There is an interesting article at the Center for Science and Culture website pertaining to Christians and their belief in extra-terrestrials. Notably, Seventh Day Adventists founder Ellen White believed in aliens. She taught that there are unfallen people living on other planets. She wrote about one vision she had of Jupiter: "the inhabitants [of ...

The only verse I have ever heard being taken to mean this is John 10:16 - and that was humorously, not seriously. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

As far as I can tell, the Bible is silent on the question of life that lives somewhere other than earth, with one exception -- angels. Several passages in the Bible refer to the stars of heaven and the angels interchangeably, and other passages discuss angels in heaven or cast out of heaven to the earth. Genesis 28:12, Judges 5:20, Job 38:7, Psalm 8:4-5, ...

The Bible as we have it doesn't give an absolute answer to the idea of life on other planets. I say "as we have it" simply because the books of the bible have changed throughout history. Some argue that John 10:16 and first chapter of Ezekiel suggest life outside our planet and even possible visitation. Others would argue that the omission of life being ...

I think Pastor Doug makes a great case for life on other worlds: http://www.amazingfacts.org/news-and-features/news/id/528/bible-answers-with-pastor-doug.aspx He highlights the idea that perhaps were the one fallen planet of many: “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and ...

The Bible makes no obvious reference to aliens, and most people (including myself) think it makes no reference at all to aliens. I think it is unlikely that God created life outside Earth for two reasons: Scientific: because of the Fermi paradox which says essentially that if there is extra terrestrial life we should have seen evidence of it by now. ...

Here is one of the most remarkable descriptive passages in scripture. If you believe in flying saucers, then you may think Ezekiel is describing one here. However, the other elements in the narrative rule out the idea of a flying saucer controlled by aliens from another planet. Cherubim and a Throne In this portion, Ezekiel sees four four-faced cheribim ...
