Dr. Michael S. Heiser takes a detailed look at multiple pieces of Christian art and whether or not they contain references to ancient aliens. Watch this fascinating episode to discover what's really going on." from video introdduction.

We distract ourselves from the True God to consider lesser gods and their trappings. Don't be caught up in spending more time contemplating UFO's and the paranormal than focusing and establishing a relationship with your Lord!
My efforts on this blog are among other things to help you understand that our salvation is not found in grey aliens or reptilians but in Christ alone!! - Andy
