Mr. Spock

Mr. Spock
 I’ll admit it.  My favorite alien is Mr. Spock.  Who doesn’t like those pointy ears or his ability to do the Vulcan nerve pinch?  Alf is my next favorite.  I loved the episode where he had to fight a giant cockroach.  It was hilarious.  As for E.T., he was okay.  I didn’t cry when he died in the movie.  I’m sitting in the theater, listening to all the sniffles, and I’m thinking,  “It’s just a puppet!” 
None of the aliens were real anyway.  Mr. Spock was portrayed by a real person, Leonard Nimoy, but the character of Mr. Spock was as fictional as the other aliens.   I guess the question should be do real aliens exists?  The answer is yes, and they walk among us!
“Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.  Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.” 1 Peter 2:11-12 (NIV).
Did you think I meant extra-terrestrial aliens? The Amplified Bible translation uses the term aliens instead of foreigners.  None the less, we as Christians are the “foreigners” or “aliens” addressed in this passage.  Once we become believers in Christ, we have a new home and a new purpose.  This sinful world is only a temporary stop on our eternal journey.  But while we are here, we still have to deal and live with the sin and temptation all around us.  We are to behave in a Godly manner and not succumb to worldly ways.  By doing this, we are to be example to the lost so they too will become aliens in this world.
I’m gonna beam out of here y’all.  Live long and pray often!!


  1. I admire Spock and that Vulcan nerve-pinch too! ;-)

    I really didn't see much of Alf or E.T., though I've caught snippets of both shows over the years.

  2. Aren't you the clever one! But, a good reminder that we as Christians aren't supposed to blend in even though it might be easier to do so. Now, are some of us more different than others? Yeah, but that's a different subject altogether. LOL
