Why the Bible is formed?
April 2, 2007 12:42pm CST
In the early centuries of the church, there appeared more than 50 gosples, which include 4 gosples that we see in New Testament and other gosples such gosples of James, Gosple of Thomas, Gosple of Hebrews, etc... There were 22 bo0oks of acts. Acts of the Apostles, Acts of Paul, and Acts of Thecla etc... There were numerous Epistles that we see in New Testament and others such as Paul's letter to LAodiceans, epistles of Barnabas,etc... It created total confusion among early Christians because some of the books and letter were "spurios" and other genuine . Some of them contained even superstitions and funny stories of miracles of Jesus and apostles. MAny false prophets appeared with different theologies contrary to the apostolic teaching. For Arius, Jesus was not God. For Apollinarius, Jesus was not MAn. MAcedonius preached Holy Spirit is not GOd. For Maricionites, all the Gosples are false. All of them started to qoute the scriptures available at all time. to defend the true church and its doctrines from the apotacies, the catholic church decided to select some books that seemed genuine and inspired; it is known as the canon of bible(grek "kanon" means something serving to determine, rule). Thus, the Bible came from the church! The Church is not coming from the Bible".
