The History Channel airs a weekly program dedicated to the exploration of the theory that mankind was shepherded by beings from another world thousands of years ago. Learned men, dressed in tweed jackets and turtle necks, point to pyramid drawings of supposed astronauts and ancient models of our solar system as proof of such visitations.
One piece of evidence these “scholars” cite is the above passage from Ezekiel. According to them, the wheel and cloud was a spaceship and its occupants were mistaken for angels by early man.
I thought about this, and a question came to mind. Why is it more educated to believe in aliens rather than angels, galactic travelers rather than God?
Don’t misunderstand, I don't think we’re alone in the Universe. John 10:16 refers to, “Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold…,” which could, conceivably, refer to life on other worlds. I simply don’t understand why it’s seen as open minded to believe in the possibility of extraterrestrial life, but viewed as superstitious to believe in God.
Surely if there is life out there, it too had to be created by something. I have to believe an all-powerful God is capable of creating more than one world.
In any event, I have no trouble believing that angels are angels.
