Rick Gerhardt :: What would salvation look like for life on other planets?

  • Is there salvation for intelligent life outside of earth? Rick Gerhardt, Biologist and Christian Apologist, sees this as a purely hypothetical question. The Bible indicates that humans are the only fallen creatures in the universe who are in need of salvation, inhabiting the only planet which has fallen to sin. Rick says that while we do know more about the universe now than we ever have, it is highly improbable that salvation history would come together for another planet as well as ours. “Our place in the universe is extremely finely tuned to make life possible here on earth,” Rick says, “The odds against there being one life-supporting planet are essentially nil.” There is hope, however, because Christ provides a way for redemption when sin will no longer be possible in this world.
