Hello friends, I read the article below, and laughed...out loud, no seriously...out loud! When you read it, you will understand! You will find my comments in green!!!
I also wrote a bit at the bottom of this article...after my humorous reaction to this article wore off.
Today, most of these UFO “cult leaders” as we call them, are contactees or abductees. They have no biblical paradigm to work with for what’s going on, so they believe whatever these beings tell them. 500 years ago, little people with big black eyes that spirited people away to caves, poked them with magic wands and had lewd sex were called elves and fairies. 1000s of years ago they were mermaids and sea gods. Well, now we’re a technological society, so they’re telling us they’re extra-terrestrials flying here in their spaceships.
The people who have contact these beings however, almost universally become New Age acolytes, and they’ll eventually either join a “UFO cult” or they’ll start one. Much of the church does a pretty poor job at relating to these people though, as many churches are not equipped (yet) to really give these millions of experiencers an answer to what’s happening to them. Some tend to just write them off as crazy. One of the things I’m kind of infamous for saying is that if you walked into a church and told a pastor you were abducted by aliens and you wanted help, 95% of them would probably refer you to a psychiatrist before they would refer you to Jesus Christ or the Bible for your healing.
(An acolyte is anyone who performs ceremonial duties such as lighting altar candles. The term is used for one who has been inducted into a particular liturgical ministry, even when not performing those duties.) WHAT???
But then they meet some New Ager or a “cult leader” … THEY tell them “Hey we’ve got a group of people just like you… why don’t you come to our meeting… why don’t you tell us your story… if you’re really good at it, we’ll put you on the speaker circuit and you can write a book.” I’m obviously being sarcastic, but that’s the way it goes. These are people with real experiences and really tough questions, who much of the church sadly has a tendency to write off, but they go to these other groups and they find acceptance, they find community, and they even find a purpose, or a mission in becoming “ambassadors” for the aliens.
Holy Crap...I had no idea I was a Cult Leader, did you? This fella says, there are people with real experiencers who have really tough questions....but these same people go to these UFO groups and they find acceptance, they find community, and they even find a purpose, or a mission in becoming “ambassadors” for the aliens.
While I’ve clearly said this situation is in part the church’s fault – for not addressing this exploding trend from a sound biblical perspective – however, individuals also make choices to reject God for other reasons too. When you ask “what’s behind the UFO cults” the quick answer is found in 1 Timothy Chapter 4, which says that in the latter days, people will abandon the Christian faith “…giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”
People today are in UFO cults because they are following the doctrines of these fallen angels we’re talking about. The bottom line is, they’re worshipping false gods. I don’t think they’re generally crazy though, they’re just in contact with entities the Bible warns about – for those who will read it anyway.
