Lost tribe of Israel who came to the mainland North America to find that Jesus had been here too (when he walked the earth 40 days after his Resurrection). coulda happened as far as I'm concerned cause after all he is God. Could have done anything he wanted I guess.

JW only take communion once per year. They do not observe Christmas (or I believe Easter) as they feel that is a pagan holiday (which it is) and was never meant to celebrate the birth of Christ which was really in the spring time.

Don't take just my word for it as my knowledge is very limited. Look up the doctrine or theology of JW.
I learned more about the Mormon religion from reading children's literature than anything the missionaries ever tried to explain. The children's books were simple and to the point.
ThnX for you comments & opinions… But again, so we are clear, this is what is referred to as “another Jesus & another gospel”……. In LDS Jesus is literally a born son of god, he has a brother satan….. That is not the Christian Jesus……… PERIOD!!!!!!!!

There other teaching & books go from there…….. I will be happy to discuss the doctrines & covenants &/or the pearl of great price if you like……….

I am very familiar w/ JW’s………. Their history, doctrines of the Trinity, theocracy, Jesus, end times etc…………..

Then I happily defer to your opinion. I think all people of faith have a right to exist and practice as they choose as long as it doesn't hurt anyone.

You don't know much about Christianity do you? Why so many disparraging comments about religions? Do you feel threatened by them?

I did ask a specific question.
You seem unable to answer questions. Don't like being put on the spot? Just throwing crap out there with no ability to back it up?
