Brenna wants to know if I study the bible. The short answer is, yes..of course I do. And here’s my question for her and others who ask this same question of me…have you studied the history behind the bible?
Here’s a few other questions to consider…
When did God send a prophet to fortell the book that would later become the “Bible”? Surely he would have sent someone to let us know.
Keeping in mind that the printing press wasn’t around during the days of Jesus being on the earth…where did Jesus ever speak about the Bible? Surely he would have commanded us to read it, study it, meditate on it, and memorize it…and he most likely would have said which English version was the authentic version.
Have you read “Mystery of Iniquity” by Thomas Helwys?
Which council chose which books were to be added and which ones weren’t to be added and how did they come to that decision?
Where is the apostle Paul’s other epistle? And why wasn’t it included?
When did Jesus say he was no longer the Word of God and that the Bible was taking his place?
Why didn’t the apostle Paul make a Bible for us?
Why didn’t Jesus ever write anything for us?
How could Paul say to read the ‘scriptures’ and it mean the New Testament when all his epsitles hadn’t been written yet?
When we were told that God would write his law on our HEARTS and that the Holy Spirit would bring ALL things into remembrance, did he fall short and need the bible as a back up plan?
Just a few questions to consider.
