Hi Woodrow, nice to see you back.

It seems that every religion has persons (Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, Joe Smith) who hear their god's teachings and pass them on to their followers.

Do you think the intelligent beings on other planets have their own leaders who talk directly with their god?

If so, then do you think their religious leaders are the same ones we have, just in a different form?

There is One Jesus Christ. He didn't provide salvation for aliens on other planets.

So those aliens don't live on fallen worlds? Guess they didn't eat the forbidden fruit in their Garden of Eden. Or perhaps there weren't enough talking snakes to go around...

When they die do they go straight to hell, or to heaven since they haven't heard of Jesus?

There are an estimated one septillion stars in the universe. (That's one followed by 24 zeros.) The number of planets is probably larger than that.

When you consider how many possible human-like life forms there may be, I'd say it's absurd to think that knowledge about Jesus from earth will get around to those places anytime soon.

See for people who believe in the seven solar day creation, God did not even create the day until the fourth day , go figure !....... See there are no other planets in scripture where there is life apart from the lone earth , as we are the only planet that has life in all the vastness of the space realm, and there is only one Jesus , and aliens of other planets are science fiction, and the aliens who people witness are fallen angel and demonic dark spirit that are stuck on the earth by the power of the Lord God and the Only living God ......
So you're saying the Borg wouldn't have been able to assimilate Jesus, right?

Ya just never know
Interesting. My theory on the whole thing is that one day a little alien family from a galaxy far far away went on a "road trip" across the unverse one day and one of their little ones needed to stop for a "potty break". So they drove around for quite some time until they happened upon this big ole rock in the milky way galaxy and decided that was as good a place as any.

And thus, so it began, the great bowel movement that would set in motion what would eventually become the human race......

Prove me wrong

What if those civilizations are much, much more advanced than ours and became intelligent millions of years ago? Do you think their Jesus also lived millions of years ago? If so, they sure have been waiting a long time for their Rapture.
The only thing I think I would be interested in is if an alien race that had no previous contact with Earth and knew nothing about our culture came to earth talking of their savior Jesus Christ. If that happened I think I would fall tomy knees and pray to God right then and there asking him to save me. I doubt that will ever happen though.

You're mixing science and religion. Other planets in our solar system haven't been found to contain life forms as we know it.

Life forms in another solar system in the universe certainly, but then our goverment doesn't acknowledge their existance. Perhaps they do have a higher power.

Based on this assumption, there are two possible scenarios based on the fact there is absolutely no sign of any god taking care of this rock and its inhabitants;

Thus there is either no god, or there is no intelligent life here.

Yes, and one day all these "Jesus'" will engage in an MMA cage match, and whoever comes out on top wins the souls of all of the universes's inhabitants.
