What should our Christian answers and thought’s be of U.F.O’s and Aliens?
.
This is a subject which is far easier to explain now than say 20 to 30 years ago due the rapid advance in technologies.  Before, it might have been quite hard for Christian’s to explain Alien U.F.O’s sightings caught on camera but nowadays, with digital remastering processes, it’s clear to see that these grainy images of even the most famous sightings, just turned out to be easily explained instances of error. Even a lot of the stories which emerged from places like Area 51 about Aliens and crashed spacecraft, all basically turned out to be hoax stories, to take the focus off the development of super-secret aircraft such as the SR71 Blackbird Spy plane used in the Cold War.  
.
With almost all of these questions being explained, it’s all came as a bit of a let down for those who believed in these sightings and stories however, what’s not so easy to explain, is why mankind in general, posses such a great need to believe in something more than what is seen with the eye. This is really the main question which surrounds this subject, so I’ll try to explain as fully and as briefly as I can, so you can know for yourself.
.
It’s a truth, that almost 95% of the worlds population today believe in some higher power, religion or belief system, and when we look back through the ages, it was no different then to what it is now.  Mankind just seems to have this desire within, to put their own affections upon something other than themselves, even if they don’t see it, to gain some sort of fulfilment or hope. This desire actually manifests itself in many other ways because man needs something to believe in and worship, like supporting and following a football team, taking care of a prized car or even just being part of a club. 
.
I’m sure the Christian reader can see exactly where I’m going with this and the simple answer is, it’s what we were created to do by our Lord God Almighty.  We were created with that need to believe and worship the true God, Jesus Christ and in that, we find that lasting, daily fulfilment as we walk with him as God intended.  Unfortunately with unsaved individuals, they follow after ideas like Aliens and U.F.O’s to try and fulfil that great need with no real lasting fulfilment from these idols and false god systems, leaving individuals in the position of feeling empty and alone.
.
This need is the big question and if we can use a subject like Aliens/U.F.O’s to turn the conversation around to Jesus, then hopefully the above will stand us in good stead to try and reach the individual because it’s true, whether a person sees it or even admits it, that they do in fact feel alone and scared. They need to feel fulfilled and secure and you and I know, that they’ll never find it out-with God, so I hope this knowledge helps you when the situation arises in the future.  God bless and I hope you’ve enjoyed……
