I understand what it means. The problem is that love is not god.

God is God, and His feeling towards the world was love. It does not translate to love being god.

This has always bugged me. Shouldn't it be "The wages of sin ARE death"?

No, scientists have not proven that life exists on other planets, although it's highly unlikely that life doesn't exist elsewhere in the Universe. But it has been proven that bacteria can exist outside of earth's environment which may have been what Mr.Retired meant. Or it may not have been.

In an attempt to keep this on the topic of the thread, the Bible is silent on the matter of whether there is life on other planets, and the Spirit of God has not revealed to anyone that there isn't.

True, the Scriptures do not say explicitly that there is no life outside of earth but certainly does not promote the idea either. To the dismay of many, the Bible does suggest that physical universe may have been made for the benefit of man. If true, intelligent life probably would not exist

That is a message for those who are dressed with the garments for a wedding feast.
Or spiritual armor as ole shaul mentioned in ephesians 6.
There is something about the third day that is important to remember before the garments are washed.
