I meant to make this a community wiki question as there isn't, by definition, a single answer yet there can be lots of very good ones... but I don't seem to have the ability to do that. Do I need a higher rep score? Can an admin make the change?

"Again, Mormons really believe this..." There is a phrase I'm trying to find about a blind squirrel and an acorn... how does that go? :-)

comment What evidence do we have today about Christian groups not represented at the first four ecumenical councils?
It's an equally bold claim to say that certain Jews of the first century AD could speak in their native language and be understood by speakers of many diverse tongues... but that is recorded in the Bible. I will look up the historical claims to back what I said with regard to north and south America. As for Thomas evangelizing in India: he died there, and I don't think it was a non-working vacation. :-) The Wikipedia link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_the_Apostle#Thomas_and_India

Since I'm getting voted down on this answer I'm going to have to dig into the source documents cited above and come back with more details on this. To the people voting this answer down: are you doing so because you don't believe that the Apostle Thomas evangelized north and south America?

comment What is Messianic Judaism?
I had this conversation by email with a Messianic Jew a couple years ago which is why I had the link to that PDF handy. In the early years of Christianity there was contention between the Jewish converts and the Gentile converts over whether the old Laws had to be observed (eg: circumcision, abstinence from pork, etc). There was also the "scandal" that St. Peter preferred to associate with the Jewish converts for which St. Paul "resisted him to the face," calling him out on it in public. I need to study up more on how these factions were reconciled.
