Roswell the Town
A very different perspective on
the UFO phenomenon is being introduced to Roswell this
The Alien Resistance HQ, a
Christian coffee shop and library located behind Cowtown Boots, at
Second and Main Street, will open its doors to the public at 2 p.m.
today--but this is no typical coffee shop.
Guy Malone, counter-cult
researcher and author, said his goals in opening the ARHQ are to
present a biblical perspective on the UFO phenomenon and to promote
community development in Roswell.
"There's other stuff about
Roswell that's worth promoting--not just UFO's," Malone
Malone said the cult-like
following aliens have received--and not only in Roswell--is very
unsettling to him and his associates.
"We caution about aligning
yourself with spirits or beings who don't confess the Lord Jesus
Christ," Malone said.
Chris Ward, of the Florida
based Logos Christian Fellowship, has encouraged and assisted Malone
in his pursuit of getting his message to the public.
"We believe the phenomenon is
real," Ward said, "We do not believe it's demons--it's not angels
Ward feels that what many
people think are extraterrestrial entities are actually the "Host of
Heaven," which is mentioned several places in the Bible. However, he
advises Christians to be wary of these creatures and of the influence
they exert on their lives--reminding them that hosts, just as idols,
are not to be worshipped.
"There is deceit involved
here," Ward said.
Ward said he believes these
beings were spoken of in the Old Testament and have come back because
the end of the age has arrived.
Joe Jordan, Florida's Mutual
UFO Network state section director, began investigating alleged alien
abductions on a secular level--mainly with the goal of terminating
the abductions for his clients. However, years of research seemed to
be getting him nowhere.
Then he made a breakthrough,
but it came form a very unexpected source.
"This person (former abductee),
during the experience, called out 'in the name of Jesus Christ,"
"When I heard that part of the
story--and the way he stopped it--I thought this was nuts,: Jordan
After this revelation, and a
subsequent newspaper article on his work, Jordan said he heard the
same story from countless other former abductees who'd used the same
method to put a stop to their experience. He said proclaiming the
Lord was the only strategy that seemed to work.
Not too long after that,
Jordan, who had been an unflinching non-believer, became a
Jordan believes the beings are
here to deceive humankind from believing in "the one true God" and
that this deception manifests itself in a New Age/UFO collusion,
using the delusion of sings and wonders.
"These entities only go against
what is biblical, what is Christian," he said. "They're making people
question the Bible--these aliens have taken us away from the true
To make matters worse, Jordan
said there are very few resources available to Christians who have
had UFO experiences--even though he said the Bible specifically
addresses the phenomenon.
According to Malone, who wrote
a book about his own abduction experience, that's where ARHQ comes
in. By offering Christian literature which addresses the UFO
phenomenon, he hopes to educate Christians about the origins and the
purpose of these 'spiritual beings" and to help them to
Malone also wants to put an end
to the cult-like approach that many people seem to gyrate toward and
to reach out to them with what he believes is the only truth: Jesus
"There's an alternative,"
Malone said. "We don't have to cling to this idol."
