Someone once told me “The only stupid question is the question not asked” and still another person told me “Ask a silly question, get a silly answer”. I think I’m about to find out which of these is true cause I have some question I should probably know the answers to but don’t. I now enlist you RHP’ers to enlighten me…again.
In reading the various threads here in the spirituality forum it has come to my attention that some books of the Bible exist in the world but do not make an appearance in my Bible. I had a vague idea of this phenomenon but it seems to be a bigger deal than I was originally led to believe. Can anyone shed some light on this for me or provide me with a link that might help?
Specifically, I would like to know how many missing books there are, who decided not to include them, how do we know they were originally intended to be in the Bible in the first place, and how do we know the books that ARE in the Bible are actually supposed to be there? Further, I would like to know if the ‘missing’ books are God ‘breathed’ or ‘inspired’ or what not. If so, why is it not the height of arrogance to assume that mere men can decide that some of God’s words are not fit for the Bible?
So, if any of you intellectual elite’s out there consider it your duty to educate morons please consider this an opportunity.
Also, while I’m asking questions…where has DoctorScribbles been?
Thanks for the help!
