The Idea that the Biblical Concept of the New Jerusalem is a UFO "Mothership" is Ludicrous at Best
by Stephen Yulish PhD


Posted: 14:00 February 11, 2009

“The name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which comes down out of heaven from my God” Revelation 3:12


In his February 2, 2009 article in The Alien Seeker News, New Jerusalem: Mothership"s Holding Pattern www.alienseekernews.com author Peter Fotis Kapnistos, while obviously a learned and articulate man, made the grave error of calling the word of God instead an example of UFO activity which in my mind involves rebellious, ungodly fallen angels (Genesis 6:2-4, Jude 6-9, 2 Peter 2:4). What does the holy city of God have to do with rebellious fallen angels? He should not have called what is truly divine, possibly demonic instead.

"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil" (Isaiah 5:20).

A self described journalist, editor and publisher, this fashion photographer turned photojournalist, left America to reside in the islands of the Eastern Mediterranean. He should have stuck with fashion.

"Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world (1 Corinthians 1:20).

Kapnistos begins his longwinded nonsensical rant with "the image of a splendid "city" descending intact from the sky over Old Jerusalem to rescue our faulty civilization entices the watchful realism of at least two insights; a transcendental mystical vision from the subconscious or a massive unidentified flying object over several miles long known by modern habit as a "Mothership"."

Of course, one does not have to resort to the erroneous mystical visions of a Jungian collective unconscious or the equally erroneous explanation of an UFO mothership to explain what the Bible clearly describes as the City of God, New Jerusalem, which will descend after the old earth and heavens are burned up. Ockham"s famous axiom, Ockham"s razor, applies here. The simplest explanation is usually the best. The Bible through the vision of John the Revelator tells us exactly what this descending image is but Kapnistos doesn"t see it.

"The natural man does not accept the things of the spirit of God for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot understand them because they are spiritually appraised" (1 Corinthians 2:14).

Kapnistos then quotes a fallacious study of Biblical events where events like "The Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night" (Exodus 13:21) which guided the Israelites fleeing Egypt are explained as an UFO.

Rather than accept the biblical explanation, the author and others search for more "rational" explanations. It seems to me that it takes more blind faith to believe in UFOs which have never been proven to exist than it does to believe in the Bible which has never been proved to have been false in any historical or prophetic instance. Kapnistos puts his faith in the UFO mothership concept rather than the Bible because the "word of the cross is foolishness to him (1 Corinthians 1:18). This so called natural man would rather have his sin and untruth than have to give it up and have the real truth. I know this because Kapnistos than embarks on an attack on Christianity and the Bible which he must discredit to justify his concepts.

After reiterating his belief that the New Jerusalem descending in Revelation

"And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband… Behold, the tabernacle of God" (Revelation 21:2-3)

was a UFO Mothership because John described it as a large superstructure (tabernacle?) descending from heaven, Kapnistos continued that "from this and other conundrums, the book of Revelation almost did not make it into the Bible." He erroneously states that "it was rejected by the early Church as Gnostic. The Book of Revelation was never to my knowledge rejected as Gnostic. That is nonsense. There was a Gnostic treatise called the Revelation Apocrophon which was found in the Nag Hammadi writings 2000 years later which was Gnostic but it had been rejected by the early Church Fathers.
