Before the first European came to this land now called America, The tribal clans new of the birth of Christ, and that there is a God. How is this possible? before the first Biblical text arrived, by the Europeans?

Hmmm?

 Thank you.

How was it possible for Christianity to expand before there was any written text at all.. the Gospels were all written some time after AD 50 and before  AD 70 See: https://carm.org/when-were-gospels-written-and-by-whom

Word of mouth, preachoing and when available the reading of the scriptures by the clergy werer the primary sources... as more individuals could read and with the Guttenberg Press ... able to produce many more collections of the Gospel's in native tounges more people began to learn of Christ by the printed word.  

The KJV of the Bible was preceeded by several othe English versions dating back toThe hand-written English language Bible manuscripts produced in the 1380's AD by John Wycliffe, an Oxford professor, scholar, and theologian. Wycliffe, (also spelled “Wycliff” & “Wyclif”), was well-known throughout Europe for his opposition to the teaching of the organized Church, which he believed to be contrary to the Bible. With the help of his followers, called the Lollards, and his assistant Purvey, and many other faithful scribes, Wycliffe produced dozens of English language manuscript copies of the scriptures. They were translated out of the Latin Vulgate, which was the only source text available to Wycliffe. The Pope was so infuriated by his teachings and his translation of the Bible into English, that 44 years after Wycliffe had died, he ordered the bones to be dug-up, crushed, and scattered in the river!..

Martin Luther went on to be the first person to translate and publish the Bible in the commonly-spoken dialect of the German people; a translation more appealing than previous German Biblical translations. Foxe’s Book of Martyrs records that in that same year, 1517.

In 1539, Thomas Cranmer, the Archbishop of Canterbury, hired Myles Coverdale at the bequest of King Henry VIII to publish the "Great Bible". It became the first English Bible authorized for public use, as it was distributed to every church, chained to the pulpit, and a reader was even provided so that the illiterate could hear the Word of God in plain English.

The New Testament of teh Geneva Bible was completed in 1557, and the complete Bible was first published in 1560. Examination of the 1611 King James Bible shows clearly that its translators were influenced much more by the Geneva Bible, than by any other source. The Geneva Bible itself retains over 90% of William Tyndale's original English translation. The Geneva in fact, remained more popular than the King James Version until decades after its original release in 1611! The Geneva holds the honor of being the first Bible taken to America, and the Bible of the Puritans and Pilgrims. It is truly the “Bible of the Protestant Reformation

Our founding fathers had access to several versions of the Bible in English... and were educated in classical Greek and Latan to be able to read the official Catholic Bibles when available.  So, by word of mouth and written text where and when available the Gospel of Christ has spread throught the world.

 How it it possible for the tribal people in America, to know that there is a God, and to know of the birth of Christ before this Biblical text came here?

Before text was available the oral tradition kept faith alive and within the historical record and scriptural context... in 1530 we have the record of the first English printed Bible printed. 

 It is impossible to reason the why, with you Nelson. I have read many books of the American Indians, their ability to touch the life force of the earth, is not based on text, it is based on their faith.

 They all ways seem to know that life can be taken and given. To see into the past and the tomorrow.

The oral tradition is all the native tribes had... as they had no composite written language... The same oral tradition existed in the early church as most individuals in Europe could not read and or had no access to books... Books were very expensive as they had to be printed by hand and copied.

 And still they talk about the birth of Christ, before the Bible came to America.

Are yo u talking about Native American's ... tribal people?  I am unaware that they knew of Jesus Christ before the White man arrived. 

I do understand that some tribal people believed in God... One God... the Creator... which could mean that some tribal peoples retained the knowledge of God as they migrated to the New World from Asia...

Those tribal people who believe in one God probably kept the oral tradition pure as decendents of Noah... keeping the knowledge of God alive in their families. 

 Now you know, they speak of things shared to them by their grandfathers. American Indians visited Germany, and Hitler. They fought in the war with Germany, as well as Americans that sided with Germany.

 Interesting people.

How was it possible Mr. Nelson, it is because you do not have a clue to whom we are.

It appears that you are misguided, good-intentioned, patriots who haven't a clue regarding the source or depth of the system they are working to overcome...

However, you need to know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions ... you may want to check your conclusions and weigh them in full view of the facts.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
