Christians will not immediately need to renounce their faith in God “simply on the basis of the reception of [this] new, unexpected information of a religious character from extraterrestrial civilizations.” However, once the “religious content” originating from outside the earth “has been verified” they will have to conduct “a re-reading [of the Gospel] inclusive of the new data…”
–Father Giuseppe Tanzella-Nitti SJ, Vatican Astronomer, Eminent Theologian, Jesuit Priest and Full Professor of Fundamental Theology at the Pontificia Università della Santa Croce in Rome [Connected With Opus Dei],
When I first read this statement, I was astonished. Then I read it a second, third and fourth time. Each subsequent time that I read this I review this character’s credentials and I am just bewildered as to why he is permitted to make these types of false misleading statements. The Word of God was given to serve men until the end of times. At no point should any Christian even consider renouncing their faith in God based on the presentation in the Vatican of a super duper extra-terrestrial. This only being with a higher moral value than man who will come to earth is the promised Messiah. There is no such thing as an extra-terrestrial. If Father Giuseppe Tanzella-Nitti SJ wishes to represent the teachings of Jesus Christ and those of the Word of God, if in fact he does, then he should refrain from making such barbaric statements since they are harmful and dangerous.
For any reader of the Bible you will be acquainted with the Fallen Angels, this is our expected extra-terrestrials. Do NOT be deceived, even if it is coming from that awful nice old man at the Vatican.
