British nations are Ephraim

See "Israel, identity of".


  1. The United States is modern Ephraim and Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are Manasseh.

  2. I have heard this before, and unless you correct me I will assume that the reason you think the United States is Ephraim because the United States is so great, but how do you explain the scripture that says Ephraim will be a multitude of nations? Is there any sense in which Eprhaim has become a multitude of nations in the United States?


Comments for particular doctrines should focus on that specific doctrine or on specific scriptures listed under that doctrine. Suggestions for other scriptures that relate to the doctrine and should be added are welcome. Comments that I feel contribute to the understanding of the doctrine or to listed scriptures will be published. I may add suggested scriptures to the list of scriptures for that doctrine in the post whether or not I publish the comment that suggested the scriptures. Comments that are respectful in tone and contribute understanding to the language of the scriptures and how they may apply to the doctrine have a better chance of being published. Periodically, if the number of comments for a doctrine grows large, I may delete some of them to save space.
