No No Nostromo! Pope's Astronomer Would Baptize Aliens

"An official astronomer for the pope, Guy Consolmagno, told The Guardian that he would be willing to baptize space aliens, but "only if they asked" to be baptized. "Any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul," he told the British newspaper."

Sigh. Again, the earth and humans are unique in God's creation. Genesis 1 shows us that God created the earth before He even created the sun, the moon, or the stars. Acts 17:24, 26 states that “the God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands…he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.” The verse doesn't say that humans inhabit earth and Alien Mama and babies live on Regulus.

Romans 8:19-22 says all of creation suffers under the curse of Adam and the first sin. This means that any aliens 'with souls' as the Pope's Astronomer says, would also be eagerly awaiting release from the curse of sin. But Jesus died for mankind (Hebrews 7:27) not moral beings on other planets. There are no moral beings on other planets, otherwise since Christ died for mankind and will ever only die once (Hebrews 9:26-28; 10:10), they would permanently suffer, having no remedy for their sinful state. And if they exist but are not living in a sinful state, it would render the verse above contradictory that all creation suffers from the curse.

The Pope's Astronomer should use his telescope to read his bible once in a while instead of gazing at non-existent moral beings on Pluto.

  1. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. "The pope's astronomer should use his telescope to read his bible more often". Hillarious!!! Everything you stated ... each scripture suscintly addresses the whole issue from every angle possible. It is all there in God's word. We should read it so we will know. Above all, God's people should know His word so thoroughly and understand it, not just be able to quote it, so that they can discern truth from error right away. It is a sad commentary on what the world considers the "Christian Church" and of the times in which we live...Maranatha!!
