UFO propaganda is among the chief false teachings of our age
"Deceiving The Elect -
Why Study UFOs?"
We believe that many within the church seem to take a perhaps misguided liberty of over-confidence, by assuming that they will not be led astray by false signs or doctrines. We remember Jesus said that false christs and prophets would appear to deceive the elect "if that were possible" and thus consider ourselves immune from deception, as if we just somehow automatically inherit an "anointing" to not be deceived.
This is not the case however; in both recorded instances of that statement (Mt 24:24, Mk 13:22), Jesus followed it by emphasizing, "So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time." There is the implication that sound, anointed teaching is what guards the believer from deception, not some supernatural immunity. The church has always had to zealously guard against doctrinal deception. Much of Paul's writing is dedicated to refuting false doctrines that were creeping into the early church, and leading many astray. Relevant to this age, we are specifically told in 1 Timothy 4 "... that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons." Ephesians 4 affirms that the pastor/teacher has the charge to prevent this.
UFO propaganda is among the chief false teachings of our age. It's doctrines are leading millions into an unbiblical - antichrist, even - worldview. Our experience is that these false doctrines are also causing the falling away of many within the church, who now give heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of devils. This trend will continue as "ufology" winds its way from the lunatic fringe of research, and (like evolution) becomes accepted as mainstream "science." We believe the church, by NOT studying or providing sound Biblical teaching on this topic, is likely to make the same mistake we did with evolution - we allowed ourselves (and the world) to believe that perhaps evolution and creation were compatible in some way, leading to a severe erosion of society's trust in the Bible's accuracy and authority - and ultimately a "godless" worldview.

Therefore says the package, life must have

maybe God, maybe aliens.
Today, we are guilty of "hypothesizing" in our human wisdom that UFOs may not contradict a biblical worldview (and as a philosophical area of inquiry, they do not). However, by not investigating the current UFO movement, and examining what contactees report these beings are telling them, we are failing to recognize that the teachings found within the doctrines of modern "ufology" are in direct opposition to a biblical worldview. Primary doctrines of modern UFO culture are that mankind was "seeded" or created on earth by another space-faring race (see article on "Panspermia - Theory of extra-terrestrial origins"); that the miraculous events in the Bible are "primitive" interpretations of UFO technology; that Jesus Christ was an alien-human hybrid; and that aliens are making their presence known on earth in this age as "spirit guides" to assist mankind to achieve Utopia - a technological earthly paradise where we all acknowledge our own divinity, under the banner of one-world brotherhood, government, "peace and safety."
