UFOs and The Church

-------UFOs and The Church------
"People who have attended church recently and who identify themselves as born-again Evangelical Protestants are much less likely to have seen UFOs or to believe in the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence than people with little or no involvement with organized religion." Source http://www.scrippsnews.com/node/34758
Why is it that people who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ and have received the gift of the Holy Spirit by doing so are much less likely to have seen or believe in UFOs? This is especially odd when there are so many eyewitness reports and filmed documentation of this unusual phenomena.
There are many possibilities, but based on what scripture teaches about Satan and evil spirits, I believe the whole UFO phenomena is related to the spirit world and evil spirits.
In a book that I am currently reading, Hunt For The Skinwalker, paranormal events that occurred always seemed to be preceded by balls of light that acted like living entities. Strange beings would appear and disappear. Several people who witnessed these "orbs" were overcome with paralyzing fear and couldn't explain why. Often there would be the smell of sulfur in the air.
The team of scientists who researched this said that it was like there was a door to another dimension that these beings or entities could go in and out of. The Indians called these orbs of light "skinwalkers" because they had the ability to make themselves look like animals. They believe "skinwalkers" to be beings of pure evil. We would call them evil spirits or demons.
As we get nearer to the second coming of Christ, I believe we will hear and witness more and more bizarre and unusual UFO stories.
If UFOs are, in fact, evil spirits in disguise, then what is their purpose? I believe their purpose is two-fold. The goal of these beings who are enemies of God is to discredit God's word and make the world believe in a lie.
I have heard it said that if man could prove the existence of extraterrestrial life, it would destroy the church.
People outside of the church have formed UFO cults. Remember Marshall Applewhite? He led 38 people to commit suicide. In scripture, all of the people who were controlled by demons or evil spirits were suicidal. He was the son of a Presbyterian minister who believed in UFOs and Astrology. Obviously he was not a a born again believer or he would have had nothing to do with Astrology and would have questioned the whole the UFO thing.
Some people within the church believe that man is the offspring of alien beings and we just call those beings God and Angels. Or Satan and Demons. Scripture is very clear that God created man and that is was Jesus Christ who formed us. Most of the world is blind to this simple truth.
" and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ;" Ephesians 3:9
"13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him." 1 Colossians
Bible believers not only believe in Jesus as our savior they also believe Him to be our creator. UFO enthusiasts believe we "evolved".
Obviously, these beliefs contradict so at least one belief system is in error. UFO enthusiasts believe the Holy Bilbe to be incorrect and will not read it nor trust it. Instead they choose to believe a lie especially since the theory of evolution cannot be supported by true science.
That is why these "balls of light" appear more to unbelievers than believers. Unbelievers will perpetuate the lie and believers will not.
Demonic activity greatly increased at the first coming of Christ and it will greatly increase at the second coming.
Satan, the Evil One, knows and understands scripture better than we do. He wants to be worshiped as God. Is too big of a stretch to believe that he will counterfeit everything that God has done? We know from prophecy that a man will arise whom the world will worship as God. This man will be killed and will rise from the dead after 3 days counterfeiting the death and resurrection of Christ.
We know from scripture that one day millions of people will vanish from planet earth. Will this be counterfeited by so called alien abductions?
We know from scripture that Christ will return to earth with His saints. Will Satan counterfeit this as well?
Israel is the center piece of the fulfillment of all things considering the second coming of Christ. UFO sightings began in 1947 just one year before Israel was reestablished as a nation. Coincidence? I don't think so.
A new X Files movie will soon be released. The whole theme of the X Files was aliens creating a hybrid race to conquer earth. The title of the new movie is The Truth Is Out There. It certainly is. We call it the Holy Bible.
