Do You Believe In Aliens

Southaven, Ms

By: Mike Upchurch

Me: So, you don’t believe in God?

Atheist Friend: Nope!

Me: Do you believe in Aliens from outer space?

Atheist Friend: Well, yeah.

M: Have you ever seen an Alien?

AF: No, but I’ve seen the videos of UFO’s.

M: I see…..

A: There’s so much proof they have visited us. They’ve given us technology and showed us how to build stuff.
Just look at Area 51! And what about Crop Circles? The Pyramids? Stonehenge? There’s proof they’ve come, but there is no proof of God.

M: Interesting…..

A: What proof is there of God?

M: The proof is all around us. It’s in life itself! You’re breathing involuntarily. Your heart is beating without instruction from you. But even that is not meant to be valid proof. He asks us to believe in Him without proof.

A: Well, that’s dumb!

M: Right….but believing in Aliens is different, right?

A: Yeah, everyone knows they’re out there. And they can teach us stuff. Besides, God never did anything for ME!

M: But God can teach you stuff too…and there is proof that He um….oh, never mind.

Anyway, let me make sure I understand; you believe in Aliens, who supposedly are smarter and more advanced than us, and more than likely want to invade our planet and take over or destroy us. You also believe they came here long ago and taught our ancestors.

A: Right.

M: Yet, you don’t believe in a loving God who DID come here long ago and taught our ancestors; a God who is smarter than us, and who LOVES us, and who just wants a relationship with us? A God who wants to teach us and help us, and not destroy us?

A: Right. He doesn’t exist. He’s a fairy tale.

M: Ummm, I suppose you believe in Bigfoot too, right?

A: Oh yeah, he’s real.

M: Hmmm (trying not to laugh), you believe in Aliens and life on other planets which you haven’t seen, and you believe in Bigfoot whom you haven’t seen, yet you don’t believe in God because you haven’t seen HIM?? Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to laugh!

Well, have a nice life. Maybe you will see an Alien one day. And maybe even video a Bigfoot. But I do hope you don’t see God, for your sake. He might be upset that you didn’t believe in Him. Oh, I forgot….you’re too smart to fall for that God stuff. After all, God never did anything for you. He has never helped you, or healed you, or protected you, or answered your prayers when you were little. He must hate you. Good thing the aliens help you and watch over you.

A: Right. Wait….what?

M: Well, the proof for you that God ever existed resides in the fact that He would have helped you in the past if He did exist. The fact that He didn’t help you is proof He doesn’t exist, right? So Aliens must help you or they don’t exist either, right?

A: That’s crazy. Aliens don’t help people. They just watch us. But since you brought it up, if God existed, then there wouldn’t be any suffering in the world.

M: That’s not how it works. You are a free will agent able to make choices. If you choose to hurt someone else, or someone chooses to hurt you, God can’t be blamed for that.

A: Well, if He’s real, why doesn’t He intervene then, and keep us from getting hurt?

M: Because you said He doesn’t exist.

A: Oh…..

“He who believes and trusts in the Son and accepts Him [as Savior] has eternal life [that is, already possesses it]; but he who does not believe the Son and chooses to reject Him, [disobeying Him and denying Him as Savior] will not see [eternal] life, but [instead] the wrath of God hangs over him continually.””
‭‭John‬ ‭3:36‬ ‭Amplified

And that’s the truth!
