Many Christians will see the Others as demonic beings. To them, the Bible is not a matter of interpretation or conjecture, but the unerring word of God for all time. Christian author and former television producer Coleman Luck recalled that the New Testament speaks of a “great deception” to take place during the “End Times.”
At that time, the Anti-Christ will be appearing and will deceive most Christians away from their faith.
He added that,
“an essential part of that deception will have to do with what appears to be alien contact.”
Beings claiming to be extraterrestrials will seem to prove that Jesus was not the savior of mankind.
“Ultimately,” Luck concluded, “that lie will be overthrown.”13
It is a clear that most evangelicals will interpret the “Others” according to strongly held Biblical-based beliefs.
In this context, some of the most relevant passages in the Bible will be:
“For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”14
This is from Ephesians, a letter from the Apostle Paul, and one of the earliest Christian documents. What Paul appears to be saying here is that humanity’s great struggle is against spirits that are literally “in the heavens.”
In the same letter, he refers to Satan as,
“the prince of the Power of the Air” and “the prince of the aerial host.”
Another passage from Paul, this one from Thessalonians, will resonate with Christians in the post-Disclosure world, as it speaks of the arrival of,
“Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.”
