Yes, some aliens are Christians.

Jesus said that.



And 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. -- KJV, John 10:16


So, apart from his sheep on "earth", Jesus told us he has "other sheep" that he will bring together with his Earthly sheep to make one big fold of Aliens and Humans together.

What if an alien rocked up and he was a christian?

As a devout atheist I've gotta say that would be pretty convincing.

Necroism is another one.




The Necromongers are a religious empire and one of four elder races, that zealously and violently follows and propagates its religion Necroism. An absolutely fanatic group that believes life is antagonistic to the natural state of the universe. They intend to convert or kill all who oppose them.

Something along the lines of the Urantia book would describe the internal hierarchy of different Planet civilizations.

Sorry, but the Mormons already used that line when they claimed Jesus came to North America to preach to the indigenous
tribes.

None. They would know that they weren't created by some mythical figure.


You may be right. Technologically advanced sciencee kinds of people tend to lean towards having a lack of religion.

Or, after a 1000 years or 1,000,000 years of technological advances they would have an extremely refined form of religion. That is what I am thinking. I doubt it would be based on something planet or home world specific. The metaphors used in the religion would probably be space-travel based metaphors.

If you win the discussion here you get to keep this thread as your own.

I always thought the Mormons were a bit strange.

However, it's Jesus that will combine the sheep from different folds, not the Mormons.

So it is decided. Clearly the alien extraterrestrials would be Christians. Thank God this is settled.

The more advanced aliens understand that the most suitable "religion" is so open and all-encompassing, that mankind would reject it outright. Human religions are all based on prejudice. (i.e. "It's our way, or nothing!")

IF they did it'd be something we never heard of IF, and a big if they have the concept of religion to begin with.

Cosmology

The book describes that at the center of the cosmos is the stationary Isle of Paradise—the dwelling place of God—with Paradise being surrounded by "Havona," an eternal universe containing a billion perfect worlds, around which seven incomplete and evolutionary "superuniverses" circle.

The word "universe" in the book is used to denote a number of different scales of organization. A "superuniverse" is roughly the size of a galaxy or group of galaxies, and the seven superuniverses along with Paradise-Havona are together designated as the "grand universe." A "local universe" is a portion of a superuniverse, with 100,000 local universes being in each superuniverse. Beyond the seven superuniverses, uninhabited "outer space levels" are described. The term "master universe" refers to what in modern usage would be the total universe—all existing matter and space taken as a whole.

Urantia is said to be located in a remote local universe named "Nebadon," which itself is part of superuniverse number seven, "Orvonton." The physical size of a local universe is not directly stated, but each is said to have up to 10 million inhabited worlds.


Additionally, and closer to your question of Deity ...

Part I, titled "The Central and Superuniverses", addresses what the authors consider the highest levels of creation, including the eternal and infinite "Universal Father", his Trinity associates, and the "Isle of Paradise".
Part II, "The Local Universe", describes the origin, administration, and personalities of the local universe of "Nebadon", the part of the cosmos where Earth resides. It presents narratives on the inhabitants of local universes and their work as it is coordinated with a scheme of spiritual ascension and progression of different orders of beings, including humans, angels, and others.
Part III, "The History of Urantia", compiles a broad history of the Earth, presenting a purported explanation of the origin, evolution, and destiny of the world and its inhabitants. Topics include Adam and Eve,



Is this my belief? No, but it has adherents who believe it to be truth. And ......it describes the state of the Universe.

It's a really cool book. It's definitely on my short list to read. I'm sure I will bounce off its ideas. One of the first ones I found that I would comment on:

2:1.10 (35.3)


Because the First Father is infinite in his plans and eternal in his purposes, it is inherently impossible for any finite being ever to grasp or comprehend these divine plans and purposes in their fullness.


The purpose of God, or God's divine plan, is to realize every possible quantum state in reality no matter how much time it takes to achieve. And the result of such an achievement is the omega thought, that is, the sum of all possible thoughts into single abstraction or feeling giving rise to omnipotence.
