Not necessarily. The Jews were an assimilation of many cultures over a 2000 year period from Egyptians and Assyrian's to Arabs and many other peoples.

There is documentation that testifies of this. You just have to be willing to read it and find out if it is true or not.

If you don't believe me... prove me wrong.
Lol Now it's a documentation of American Indians? I don't remember my Grandpa (who was half Choctaw) every mentioning that bit to me. Table of Nations aside, the Bible never once mentions the Book of Mormon or Joseph smith. I don't have to prove you wrong. I have nothing to prove. Truth is truth.

You don't put your picture up because your smart. But the same logic you use for people that won't put their names out on Topix as you have done, that their ashamed and cowards, your own logic brands you a coward and being ashamed to put your picture out there with your name, and that's your logic back at you.

No The Church of Jesus Christ did not come into existence until Jesus Christ came to the earth and established it.
Adam and Eve were taught from the very beginning... there is a difference.
You moron, Must people reading my post would have intelligence enough to understand that I meant from them beginning of the early church.
Please takes your meds.
The Dark Ages devoured the O.R.I.G.I.N.A.L. Church of Jesus Christ.
//
Prove it. Prove there wasn't honest followers of Christ during those times.
Christ set up his Church "The Church of Jesus Christ" during his ministry. Money, power, and evil changed it.
This is called the Dark Ages.
Yet the message of the grace of Christ was still being taught.
The Roman Catholics forbid anyone without "their authority" to own a copy of the Bible... for monetary purposes.
Salvation isn't depended on you owning a Bible. Only having and understanding it's message.
"The original languages of Hebrew and Greek, and the 1,000 years of the Dark & Middle Ages when the Word was trapped in only Latin". This was done to ensure people did not have the ability to possess the knowledge of the Word of God on their own for their own agenda. The only way to obtain the knowledge or power was to pay for it.
No, it was still taught from every Sunday in Mass.
All of the different break offs of the different Christian Church's came as a result of the Dark Ages. That is why there are Different Christian sects NOT different Christian GODS.
And they all teach salvation by the grace of Jesus Christ, except the cults likes Mormonism, Jehovah's Witness, Islam, etc.
The only way to have the TRUTH and I mean the FULL TRUTH is to go back to the ORIGINAL BIBLE...
it had the fullness.
Prove we don't.
Once it was broken up and taken away from and added to and modified it became NOT the ORIGINAL.
Like Joseph Smith did with his translation? I agree.
It is necessary for us to take ALL writings into account that ARE
O.R.I.G.I.N.A.L.
There is still more out there.
What isn't needed for our salvation has been preserved. We certainly don't need polygamy for our salvation. We don't need marriage for our salvation. We don't need any temple endowments for our salvation. We aren't needed to help in the salvation of the dead. Smith brought and restored nothing. Just a bunch of fantasies to milk the members of their money and to make him look important. False prophets will get you nowhere.
The Book of Mormon is just one of the O.R.I.G.I.N.A.L. writings discussed here. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is about the writings that originated from the Nephites in the Book of Mormon.
Making issue with JS in any way shape or form has always been the desire of corrupted men.
The source of the corruption is important to show why there is corruption. From perverts, you get perverted teachings in the name of God. Mormonism is an abomination to mankind, as much as Islam is and always will be. The BoM hasn't got one piece of evidence to show it is true. It is as factual as Lord of the Rings, and isn't half as interesting.

Eh...I prefer not to split hairs on the issue. I sincerely don't believe he was black or white. Being a Jew from the Middle East, I believe he had olive skin. Not that it really matters. He's still Messiah.

I have read it many times and DNA evidence has proven over and over that Native Americans aren't Jews. Case close.

Dana you are here just to argue.
You don't care about what as long as you get the last word in with everyone... and it doesn't matter if it's correct, factual, or dumb.
It is fact that many of those manuscripts have been found and used in modern translations of the Bible. That is fact, get over it.

Well my grandmother was half Choctaw... she didn't mention it either.

I had to research and study and search and pray. Not all things are written on a sticky and posted to your forehead.

No, the golden plates would have been the manuscript Smith was suppose to have used to get the BoM from. That is the story. A written account is a written account, no matter what it was written on. Please let us know you're not that stupid.

No, I don't think you have. Once you have done that then come back and tell us about your opinions.
That isn't a requirement. The requirement is to read it and pray about it. God said "NO"!

No let's get this straight.

1- My name is not Carol....

2- You were calling me Carol for a long time before I posted your information that you publicly posted on the Internet yourself...

3- I would never confide in you EVER.

Look what you did to that poor lady Carol... you gave her full name, address, her 4 kids names, all information she confided in you in a business transaction.

So... YOU ARE WRONG... YOU ARE UNETHICAL... YOU ARE A LIAR...

I have no respect for anyone who says they will kill Jesus Christ himself.

You posted your address on the INTERNET for EVERYONE not me... YOU

Not too long ago a archeologist went deep down into Guatemala and found some white Indians... one came back to Washington D.C. and did some D.N.A. testing. Turns out she was the real deal!

If you think identity theft is BS, you're not stupid. You're more stupid than I didn't give you credit for not being.
I typed in your name and the first eight hits were all about you. And that page didn't include your FB profile. If I went to Bing and added your name I'm sure to get a few extra hits.
I put my name in and didn't get a single hit. If being safe is being a coward in your definition, I'll take that as a comliment :)

They are the Maya Indians.

With today's society you have blood mixing that's crazy wacko...

But, the Maya Indian that I'm referring to that was tested was from a tribe that hides deep in the forest.

There is a HUGE amount of history out there.

The Church has always said there's more out there to come to light.
