Salvation for Extraterrestrials?

Salvation for Extraterrestrials?  

Programs on TV and newspaper or magazine articles about UFOs and life on other planets have caused me to ask: Did Jesus visit them also and die again on the cross to free them from sin? I don’t know what we should believe about UFOs and life on other planets. 

God is in charge of the entire cosmos (everything created). The Bible describes salvation only for humans on planet Earth. We are free to speculate on various possibilities—as long as that speculation does not cause us to neglect our present responsibilities.
