    The Church of Later Day Saints says that Christ migrated to the Americas.
    Can this be true?

    Are there any Mormons here?

      Short answer, no, Jesus didn't "migrate" to the Americas.

      Long answer, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe in the Book of Mormon, which is a scriptural record written by people living on the American continent at around the same time as the Bible was being written.

      After Christ died and was resurrected, he appeared to these people in the Americas and taught them, just as he taught the people in Israel after his resurrection.

      If you want to read more about this, the church has a copy of the Book of Mormon online:

        I don't think history supports it.

        Jesus did not die on the cross; so neither did he got resurrected from the dead nor he appeared to any people as an apparition.

        Yes, Jesus alive in wounded condition was seen and mentioned in Bible; then he immigrated to India to propogate his teachings to the lost sheep of the house of Israel as he prophesied.

        Book of Mormon is a recent phennomenon; it never existed in the times of Jesus.

      I would like to add here.

      Mormons claim to be the only true Christians.

        Actually, that isn't true.  We don't claim to be the only true Christians.  There are many groups of people who believe in and follow Christ, and we have respect and admiration for all of these.

        We believe that our church is unique in the priesthood authority it contains and that we are unique in following the prophets whom God has called for our time, but we certainly aren't trying to discount the Christianity of others.  I for one love to meet and talk with other Christians, no matter what their denomination.

          Mormons do claim that they are the only true Christians; but in terms of Deuteronomy Joseph Smith was a false Prophet as was Paul and hence they both got killed in terms of the OT. They did not belong to the Creator-God and were not sent by Him.

    Jesus was an American or he must have been given some sort of Honorary Citizenship.

    Did Jesus therefore discover the trade route to the Americas???
