What would be the implications for Christian theology if we encountered extraterrestrial life? The question is being discussed in a formal context.
If there is life outside our planet, is Jesus still the only way to the father? Would these aliens have their own original sin needing their own redeemer, but owing their being to the same creator God? You can see how the line of questioning gets bizarre and complex.
I am hoping for a peaceful encounter with an alien race someday. Yes, I think we'll share the gospel with them. And maybe they'll share it back to us.
