How did I go my entire life not knowing about the unpublished books in the bible? I have to admit I do not attend church nor do I go to prayer meetings. My interest has been reborn so to speak about this Apocrypha. My daughter bought a book about this mystery ( at least to me) and now I want to learn more. I will be reading the book when she is finished. Does anyone have any insight to these books and why they aren't included? Who made the decision ti have them omitted and if so why? The Catholic religion seems to be mentioned when I query this in a search. I feel like I'm missing something. Did you ever have someone tell you that "you can't do something" and then it makes you more determined to do it? That's kinda how I feel. Politics has been around since the beginning if man. Is that what it stems from? We've read about rulers and those non Jesus believers throughout history. Is it just the way it has always been? Don't ask don't tell comes to mind. What are your thoughts? Does anyone know of any books to help us learn of the Apocrypha?

This is the very reason I do not think the bible was written by God. Man is the writer and editor. Supposedly the Koran was written after the bible was completed. The Discovery Chanel web site may be of great help to you.

The Counsel of Nicaea. Circa ...oh gosh, I think I am going to have to look it up.. I can't find my book, Wiki says the first counsel was held around 382, but they are the guys responsible for most Christian Doctrine, and do keep in mind that Until the Great Schism, there was only Catholics...and no other denominations of Christianity. I know they chose what books to keep published in the Bible, and I am sure the purpose was to influence people to listen to them more, rather then seek a personal relationship with Jesus, and the Father. Sincerely and With Appreciation.
