How many religions came from America?

Post #1

Post by Wootah »

Is it evidence for or against religions if they came from America?

For instance Mormonism and Jehovah's Witnesses. Are there more? Scientology. Any more?

I would argue it is evidence against the religion because America has quite literally nothing the to do with the Bible. What other evidence flows from a religion coming from America?
Proverbs 18:17 The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.

Looking for head to head debates, especially on contradictions or the Trinity. PM me your topic.

Jesus wasn't around at that time and 'the Israelites' did not exist at that time, the twelve tribes had been separated a long time before Jesuis.

And that is what your Watchtower would like to be re-instated, I'm guessing.
A Theocracy using the Old Laws of Moses.

No Jews around, then? Jews belonged to one or two of the tribes of Israel.

The only religion that God had in the OT was Jewish. They were the ones in the NT that sent Jesus to his death.

There wont be any need for judges or the laws of Moses under Gods kingdom rule. Only the righteous will be there.

The Jewish spiritual leaders sent Jesus to Pilate. They egged the crowds on to ask for Barabbas release according to the bible. So they were responsible.
