Come on people: mainly believers. There were tons of other books that were supposed to be in the Bible! They sat down and just picked and chose which ones to include. That was definitely humans doing the dirt work! How can you believe it was the word of God when humans made it: from the cover right up until the very end. To get a grasp of the actual truth and the actual events that occurred you need ALL of the witness claims and verses not just the ones in the present day bible. Think about it, eh!?!

I have a question for you....when did God speak to YOU and tell YOU the list of books He wanted in the Bible? Not being a smart aleck here...but smarter men than you or I who actually studied ALL of the choices...and who were dedicated to God's word and His will...determined what to include. And God made sure it was the right choices by His Holy Spirit. And, if you want to read the others...go for it. NO one's stopping them being read or studied. But there not in the Bible cause they were not inspired by GOD.

Well i dont care about the books in the Bible. I believe n i know that the Bible was wriiten by purely by the inspiration of God and though there maybe more books available written by different apostles however it may hae no releveance and no proof. U read teh Bible and u will see that its not by Human hands but purely led by the spirit and theres relation and proper flow of sequence from the old testement to new testement. As u have taken teh trouble to find out that there are more books in the bible which were ommitted, I hope u will take the time to read the Bible and My God reveal to you the wonders of his love and work as u read it.

There are tons of books that weren't in the bible because they werent as consistant as the other books, well the gospels I should say. The bible is Gods work and the words of his dispciles. Man did make the bible but not the words. Just because the books are not in the bible dosen't mean we should not consider it and take all the good information that can be gained from them. The church needed and wanted a consistant story of christianty, they had an idea of what they wanted and made the bible from it at the counsel of niece. Most people dont take stock in these books that arent in the bible because of how late some of these books were written, they were deemed less accurate than the earlier ones. And some of them taught many different lessons that the church was scared off(i.e. women leading and some of the books about Jesus's early life showed him being a child and doing things children do like getting in trouble) for some reason it was deemed wrong to have this accounting in the bible. I think it is important to know about these books.

Yeah but how can we know about these books when they were destroyed. They should be still accessible so WE as people can judge what is 'consistent' and not. Man is faulty...they put together the Bible.. leaving out some of Gods words, no? So it is faulty.

The Bible was not authored by man. It was authored and inspired written by God. God just utilized man to put it down on paper. If the Bible has error, then why is it that all of the history and prophesy in the Bible is completely accurate. Are you telling me that those men new exactly what happened in the past years before they were even born and that they were able to see the future and record everything to happen after they were born and there not be any error in it whatsoever? There are many history books that prove that the Bible and its contents are historical fact. Of course, you are probably not trying to disprove history. When people start questioning whether the Bible is accurate, they are really trying to justify doing something that the Bible says is wrong. It is a very convenient excuse. Let's say I have a list of rules and consequences of breaking them in my home and my children decide they don't want to follow the rules. Can they go out and do what they want to do and pretend that my rules don't exist or that what I wrote down can be followed if and when they want to or how they want to? NO. That is trying to justify wrongdoing. No matter how much you try, it is never right to go down the wrong path. There are plenty of rules I wish were different in the Bible, because the human part of me wants to be able to take revenge when someone hurts me, or I don't want to pray for my neighbor, but just because I don't like the rule doesn't mean I can change it, ignore it, or start making excuses why I shouldn't have to follow it.

I and I dont think the person who started this post is trying to question the word of God or trying to say the bible is wrong. They were simply pointing out that there are many books that were considered but left out of the bible. Not that the bible is inaccurate but that there are more books man wrote inspired by God that are not in the book. These books that were left out of the bible were written in the same way you decribed at the begining of your post. Im not saying the bible is inaccurate but you cant not acknowledge that there are other books out there, just because they did not satisfy man they were left out. We must go by the bible but there is nothing wrong with seeking and finding out about these other books your not denying the word of God by wanting to know about the other books that were candidates for the bible but didn't make it.
