What Does the Bible Say About...Extraterrestrial Life?

Does the Bible say anything about extra-terrestrial life? I have always said the Bible states that God made the heavens and the Earth and that he created people here. It does not say that he put people ONLY here.


The Bible says nothing about life other than on earth. It would not destroy my faith to find that there were life elsewhere. The Bible is the story of the fall of man and his restoration to God through the death of Jesus the Messiah. It does not talk about other forms of life. If there is life elsewhere, perhaps it is only on the level of creation as the animals with which we share this world. If there is “intelligent” life out there, perhaps they did not suffer the fall like we humans did. We don’t know, and the Bible does not tell us.
