So, if God created man, after His own image, on other planets, would they, then, be withheld from the universal redeeming power of Christ's atonement under your understanding of scripture? Christ became our (meaning earthlings) kinsman redeemer because He died and resurrected here. Such a kinship that we have with our Lord and Redeemer does not immediately forestall relationships the Lord might have with others of His children He has created elsewhere in this wide universe. Christ taught, "Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd." John 10:16 KJV. Christ was not speaking of the gentiles as his other sheep, as He sent His disciples to teach them as missionaries. So, if the Lord had other sheep, who would hear His voice, specifically, to whom was he referring?
