From the April 1971 issue of the New Era, the LDS church’s official magazine for teens and young adults. This is fantastic stuff!
God and Jesus are from outer space!
“Anyone interested in intelligent beings on other worlds ponders the obvious question: Could a person from outer space ever come to earth? Any Latter-day Saint knows the answer. Of course visitors from outer space can come to earth! They’ve been doing it for six thousand years! God and angels visited Adam. Visitations of God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ to the earth are recorded in the Old and New Testaments, as well as visitations by angels. The Book of Mormon has numerous accounts of visitations. The Father and the Son visited Joseph Smith in 1820. Space travel seems to be quite common!”
Moroni travelled to earth to visit Joseph Smith via an efficient teleporter beam!
“In our temporal existence, we may not be able to travel to worlds beyond our solar system, but other beings in other phases of existence are not so limited. The gospel has been taught in every dispensation by space travel. True, the visitors do not use rocket ships—they have more efficient means. When Moroni returned to heaven after one of his visits to Joseph Smith, Joseph “saw, as it were, a conduit open right up into heaven, and he ascended till he entirely disappeared.”
