Re: Re: Two Miss Quotes, and two liars, WILL YOU BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD
The men how put the Bible together in the 300-400's put together the New Testament, the Old was already together, and from the very beginning these books were not allowed as the word of God, second is the when they were Place in the were just like having a study bible...just because it was in the bible doesn’t mean it’s the word of God, or do you think that the notes added in study bibles are scriptural, no.
Now let’s look at what Gods word says
Revelation 22:18I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
So if the Hebrew, Jewish Old Testament was what Jesus himself studied or talk from-and the Apocrypha was not consider part of the bible and then God says through John if and one adds to the book.....
doesn’t it seem suspect to all of a sudden...300 years after that...now all these "smart guys" decided that you know what, lets add these books to the old testament...no rather they said. Let’s put them in as some important knots...or study material...nowhere does it say they added them as inspired work but rather uninspired works that were good for reading just like study notes can be good, but not infallible? And then much later they were added by the Catholic Church, and the Eastern Orthodox Church...doesn’t this seem suspect.
9 Reasons the Apocrypha doesnt Belong
1.Not one of the apocryphal books is written in the Hebrew language, which was alone used by the inspired historians and poets of the Old Testament
2.None of the apocryphal writers laid claim to inspiration.
3.The apocryphal books were never acknowledged as sacred scriptures by the Jews, custodians of the Hebrew scriptures (the apocrypha was written prior to the New Testament). In fact, the Jewish people rejected and destroyed the apocrypha after the overthrow of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
4.The apocryphal books were not permitted among the sacred books during the first four centuries of the Christian church.
5.The Apocrypha contains fabulous statements which not only contradict the "canonical" scriptures but themselves. For example, in the two Books of Maccabees, Antiochus Epiphanies is made to die three different deaths in three different places.
6.The Apocrypha includes doctrines in variance with the Bible, such as prayers for the dead and sinless perfection. The following verses are taken from the Apocrypha translation by Ronald Knox dated 1954:
Basis for the doctrine of purgatory:
2 Maccabees 12:43-45, 2.000 pieces of silver were sent to Jerusalem for a sin-offering...Whereupon he made reconciliation for the dead, that they might be delivered from sin.
Salvation by works:
Ecclesiasticus 3:30, Water will quench a flaming fire, and alms maketh atonement for sin.
Tobit 12:8-9, 17, It is better to give alms than to lay up gold; for alms doth deliver from death, and shall purge away all sin.
IF THIS WAS THE CASE THEN WHY DID JESUS DIE!!!!!!!!!!!
Tobit 6:5-8, If the Devil, or an evil spirit troubles anyone, they can be driven away by making a smoke of the heart, liver, and gall of a fish...and the Devil will smell it, and flee away, and never come again anymore.
Mary was born sinless (immaculate conception):
Wisdom 8:19-20, And I was a witty child and had received a good soul. And whereas I was more good, I came to a body undefiled.
7.It teaches immoral practices, such as lying, suicide, assassination and magical incantation.
8.No apocryphal book is referred to in the New Testament whereas the Old Testament is referred to hundreds of times.
Because of these and other reasons, the apocryphal books are only valuable as ancient documents illustrative of the manners, language, opinions and history of the East.
