    British Israelism...

    I heard about this for the first time yesterday, someone mentioned it in a thread somewhere or other:

    British Israelism - Wikipedia

    I find it ridiculous for many reasons, I cannot believe people actually believed it

    It sounds like a joke

    Does anyone here believe the claims of British Israelism?

    It's a joke. A joke that stopped being funny last century.

    I take it this is a follow-up to the thread on flat-earthers.

    No, when I made the original post I hadn't been following the flat-earther thread

    So it was not my intention to make a follow-up of that thread

    OK. But it does in fact make a brilliant sequel. :D

    This is right up there with the 'Black Hebrew Israelites" movement in stupidity.

    Nope. There will be no follow-up. They fell off the edge.

    Being a member of a lost tribe doesn't make them a Jew, so if they want to think their lineage is of a lost tribe, so what?
    I don't think lineage is of any importance unless they wanted to claim a right of passage.

    Either "British Israelism" is true...….or people who profess to worship this God are calling Him a LIAR .

    It's not since your arguments are undefeatable, but since no-one takes you seriously enough to bother.

    No, it's because the truth can't be argued with, though many try....
    and I haven't even scratched the surface yet .

    It's exactly this attitude that is making people not debate you.

    Yes, of course...

    " These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions : "Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.
    But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel " ( Mathew 10:5-6 )

    Hmmmm, looks like somebody knew where they were ….

    What are you babbling about? The lost sheep are those Jews who have strayed from Torah (and I don't even believe your NT). You have to introduce some very creative readings to reach your level of nonsense. If what you are saying is true, my people would have a history, a national folktale, of being Israelites, a lost tribe which was relocated to a wet and windy island from the Middle East. Our old epic poetry would be set not in wet and cold but in warm and arid. Our language would show traces of this, our folklore, our pottery. We find none of this. Not a shred, not a shard. You are making yourself look foolish peddling this rubbish.
